At Puritan’s Pride, we often receive requests for vegetarian versions of our most popular supplements. Today, we’re making it easy for you to discover some of our best-selling vegetarian vitamins and minerals! Let’s take a tour through our categories and find the support you have been looking for in hard-to-find nutrients.
Without a doubt, our most popular vegetarian multivitamin is Green Source. Green Source is a nutrient-dense, concentrated formula of essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes plus herbs, and fruit and vegetable blends with the active constituents of whole foods. This supplement Puritan’s Pride reviewer and customer has this to say about Green Source:
“In 20 years I have never found another product with all the ingredients for about the same price.”
For people wanting a vegetarian equivalent of omega-3 fatty acids, the heart health category can be frustrating. But don’t worry – if you are seeking a vegetarian option, there are choices beyond fish oil. Omega 3-6-9 Vegetarian and Non-GMO is made with cold-pressed flaxseed and sunflower seed oils to support heart health.**
Natural Flax Oil delivers flaxseed oil, one of the most concentrated vegetarian sources of omega-3 fatty acids found in nature, to your body. Our flax oil supplement is organic and contains beneficial phytochemicals that support heart health.**
Another popular heart health supplement is our Phytosterol Complex! Scientific evidence demonstrates that diets that include phytosterols may reduce the risk of heart disease. Our specialized formula exceeds strict quality standards for levels of phytosterols (beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol, and campesterol) – the active ingredients that help maintain cholesterol levels already within a normal range.**
Because so many B vitamins are abundantly found in meat and dairy products, many vegetarians opt to supplement B-complex vitamins, especially Vitamin B-12. Our sublingual Vitamin B-12 is suitable for vegetarians and supports energy metabolism in the body.** Vitamin B-12 also contributes to nervous system health.** In addition to sublingual tablets, we also carry easy-to-take liquid B-12.
Creatine is a molecule found in animals that is highly concentrated in the muscles and is also found in the brain. It is not easily consumed on a vegetarian diet. Myology pharmaceutical-grade creatine helps muscles produce higher muscular force, especially during short bouts of maximal exercise.** Our creatine is available in a vegetarian powder that easily mixes into juice, water, smoothies, and other liquids.
Taurine is an amino acid found in muscles that can only be found in animal-based foods, not plants. Puritan’s Pride Taurine provides a vegetarian supply of the second most abundant free amino acid found in muscles.
Many of the top nutrients needed to support joint mobility, comfort, and health come from animal-based products and nutrients. Puritan’s Pride has developed a vegetarian source of glucosamine derived from glucosamine HCL, MSM, Vitamin C, ginger root extract, and white willow extract to support joint health.**
Our shellfish-free glucosamine also provides nutritional support for joint health to encourage flexibility and comfort without nutrients derived from animals.** Puritan’s Pride customer SantaFeSue2 left this testimony:
“It’s very difficult to find Glucosamine Hydrochloride that isn’t derived from shellfish. Excellent product and exceptional value. Will continue to purchase all my supplements from Puritan’s Pride. I trust them!”
