5 powerful plant-based liquid supplements

Plant-based supplement ingredients open up many more product options to the growing number of vegans. In fact, we’re seeing shoppers increasingly favor potato, rice, pea, hemp and soy proteins over whey. Plus, omegas sourced from flaxseed, algae, sesame, pumpkin seed and other plants don’t carry the same sustainability issues as their fish-based counterparts.

Most Americans need to eat more fruits and leafy greens, and swallowing them in supplement form delivers simplicity, implicit safety and hopefully the nutrients even the healthiest diets still lack. Swallowing them in liquid form? Even better. 

Liquid supplements—or those that easily mix into a drinkable form—go down smoother than pills. And in some cases, liquefied nutrients are said to be more bioavailable. So go ahead, encourage your customers to drink up the power of plants.
