When you’re eating a plant-based diet, ensuring an adequate intake of essential nutrients is vital for supporting your overall health. For your body to function at its full potential, it needs specific vitamins and minerals to function properly. Hippo7 provides the 7 more referenced nutrients for vegans, and is uniquely formulated to support the health needs of adults.

Omega 3 (DHA/EPA)
This is an essential nutrient for vegans, since it’s typically found in fish oil. Happily, our innovative Omega 3 source goes straight to where fish get this nutrient - their food! We’ve included premium marine Algae that provides vital and important Omega 3s (DHA/EPA) for heart heath, brain health and eye health.

Shine your brightest with Vitashine D3, a vegan Vitamin D3 as cholecalciferol, which is the form of vitamin D that is produced by your body after sun exposure. Vitashine is the first Vegan Society Certified Vitamin D3 supplement. Other supplements include Vitamin D2 as it is more affordable. Hippo7 raises the bar by including Vitamin D3, since studies show it’s far superior to Vitamin D2 and raises blood levels of the vitamin up to 87% times more than D2. Vitamin D3 also plays a vital role in the healthy functioning of calcium, phosphorous & up to 2,000 genes in the body.
Our source of B12 is the naturally occurring form also found in foods – unlike cyanocobalamin which is synthetic and more commonly used in supplements. B12 contributes to the formation of normal red blood cells, supports brain & nerve health, boosts energy and improves mood. Studies have shown only 10% of B12 supplements are absorbed by the body, so we’ve included 1,000% of the recommended daily allowance. Since B12 is a safe, water-soluble vitamin, it’s typically dosed high for optimal bioavailability.

Iodine is a vital mineral that ensures your thyroid is working properly. Our iodine is naturally sourced from the nutrient-rich waters of the Atlantic, and has been used in eastern medicine for over thousands of years. Your thyroid gland uses it to make thyroid hormones, which help control growth, repair damaged cells, promote heart health, enhance immunity, and regulate the rate at which your body uses energy.
Source: Calcium Carbonate
Calcium carbonate is the most potent form available, providing the highest level of elemental calcium. It’s naturally vegan and comprises more than 4% of the earth’s crust. Due to its natural availability, it is one of the most widely used forms of calcium in supplements. Most people know that calcium plays a key role in bone health, but few know about its function in maintaining heart health, specifically its role in healthy heart contraction. It also helps balance the body’s PH level, as well as aid electricity in the nerves.
Source: Amino Acid Chelate
Sourced from a chelated mineral, this safe and gentle form of iron is more readily absorbed by the body than many other forms used. It also doesn’t interact negatively with other nutrients, which is a common concern with some other sources. If you don’t have enough iron, your body cannot make enough healthy, oxygen-carrying red blood cells which are necessary for transporting oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Iron can help with energy and concentration, as well as maintaining healthy skin, hair and nails.
Source: Amino Acid Chelate
Research shows amino acid chelates offer superior bioavailability and absorption compared to other forms of minerals, providing the most ease during digestion. Zinc is necessary for the activity of over 300 enzymes in the body. These enzymes help to serve an array of unique functions in the body such as wound healing, proper sense of taste and smell, nerve function and digestion.
