Importance and manufacture of supplements


Table of Contents


Taking care of our diet, as well as the vitamins and nutrients that we need, can be a difficult task for all people in general, but vegetarians and vegans must be especially careful about it, as there are nutrients that they cannot receive through their diet.  

For example, here are 5 important vitamins, and in which foods to find them, whether of animal or non-animal origin. 

  1. Vitamin B12: it is essential for the formation of red blood cells and the maintenance of the nervous system. It is found mainly in animal products such as meat, eggs, dairy products and seafood. And in some cereals and soy products. 
  1. Vitamin D: is important for bone health and the immune system. It is found in small amounts in some foods, such as fish and egg yolk, but the main source is exposure to sunlight.  
  1. Calcium: important for bone and muscle health. Dairy products are the main source of calcium in the typical diet. It is also in tofu and green leafy vegetables such as kale, broccoli and cabbage. 
  1. Iron: it is important for the production of red blood cells and the transport of oxygen in the body. It is found in foods of animal origin, such as meat and seafood. Also in legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grains and green leafy vegetables.  
  1. Omega-3 fatty acids: these fatty acids are important for cardiovascular and brain health. They are found in fish such as salmon. And in chia seeds, flax seeds, walnuts and canola oil. 

An effective way to obtain these nutrients is through supplements. As the name implies, they are something to be taken in addition to food, and are made especially to supplement food. Unlike vitamins, which are natural substances found in food. 

How supplements are made

The manufacture of supplements can be derived from animal and plant products, including vitamins, minerals, botanical extracts, amino acids, enzymes, probiotics, among others. But there are also companies dedicated to creating products and supplements of natural origin such as HH Processors. 

It is important to note that supplements are regulated by health authorities in many countries, such as the FDA in the United States and the European Medicines Agency in the European Union.  

The supplement manufacturing process generally includes the following steps. 

  • Formulation  
  • Mixing 
  • Compressed or encapsulated 
  • Coating 
  • Packaging and labeling 

The Supplements Vegetarians should take

Vegetarians can take a variety of supplements, as there are many supplement options that are made from plant or synthetic sources rather than animal sources. There are many protein supplements, such as soy, pea or rice; these are popular vegetarian and vegan options.  

However, it is important to note that some supplements may contain animal-derived ingredients, such as gelatin or lactose, so it is important to read labels and manufacturer’s information before purchasing a supplement and make sure it is vegetarian or vegan. 

For a vegetarian person it is recommended to consume supplements containing the important vitamins mentioned above, as well as vitamin K2, vitamin A and vitamin A . 

It is also important to research and consult with a health professional before taking any supplement to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for your individual needs.
