so recently I had a question from someone who is vegan and they’re on on the keto plan and they wanted to know what is the most important things to do okay so in this video we’re gonna talk about the most important nutrient that you should do if you’re a vegan trying to do ‘quite out one of the challenges that vegans have on keto is difficulty keeping your carbs low keeping your protein high and also making sure that you’re doing enough b12 iron vitamin A because the vitamin A in plant foods is really a pre vitamin A that has to convert also getting enough vitamin D but you can get better D from the Sun and also likens okay trace minerals might be difficult to get but the big nutrient that seems to be always deficient is these essential fatty acids okay there’s actually two of them okay let me show you we have the omega-6 fatty acids and the omega-3 fatty acids okay this is the one that I’m not worried about because this is very easy to get so the one I want to talk about is the omega-3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid and actually you can get this pretty easily in walnuts chia seed flaxseed and a lot of other foods now here’s the problem this by itself doesn’t really do you much good unless it converts into these other healthy fats right here okay EPA in DHA these two fats are vitally important if you’re a vegan because you’re not consuming fatty fish like salmon or cod liver oil so you’re not going to get it okay but the problem is that the conversion from ala to DHA is only two to five percent okay and the conversion of ala to epa is only five to ten percent and if you’re consuming large amounts of the omega-6 that can decrease these numbers even more epa and DHA are really important in brain physiology nervous system physiology it can act as an anti-inflammatory very very important in stabilizing your mood preventing depression anxiety and also to maintain your cog function but if you’re a vegan you can easily get these if you take microalgae this is the nutrient you want to take if you’re on keto to make sure that you get both of these right here simply because you’re not going to get the conversion so go to the health of store or online and find the vegan source of omega-3 fatty acids and make sure it has both epa and DHA thanks for watching if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos
