“ Brand: Vega Vitamins and Herbals „
As a veggie I hadn't really realised how hard it is to find vitamin capsules that are suitable for Vegetarians. I took a friend out yesterday to by some - she too is veggie. We started in Holland and Barrett, no luck there, capsules made with Gelatin. On to Superdrug - again all capsules made with Gelatin. The same is Boots. We walked away with none. I have used the same brand for ages and had thought they would be readily available. My Mother works in a chemist so I always buy them from her (discounted of course!) They're call Vega and the produce all of the major vitamins and minerals you need. Some of them are pretty hardcore, like the echenacea, which you should only take for a three week course and then take a week off - but it builds up the immune system and is very good for you. They are very expensive - my multi vitamins were £7.00 for 30 capsules. But they're very good. They also contain no preservatives, flavourings and some have no yeast extract. They come in brown glass jars with a dark blue label, if you can't find them it may worth asking your local chemist to order you some in. It would seem that there is a huge whole in the market - and Holland and Barrett should be very ashamed of themselves. Every single vitamin capsule jar I picked up contained Gelatin in the ingredients. So Veggies beware!
