Nature's Own Daily Multi Essentials doesn't contain any dairy, but it does contain beeswax. Many of the Nature's Own line is vegan, so you might find they have another one without beeswax.

One thing that these vitamins don't seem to have in them though is omega 3 (which is good for the brain). I tend to eat a handful of walnuts each day (on cereal) to cover my bases there. You can also get omega 3 from linseed oil/flax seeds.

Natures own is a good one,

Also there is a lot of great vitamins at

They also have lots of yummy snacks, and everything there is gaurenteed VEGAN.

Another thing which is jammed packed with nutrients are Chia Seeds. Since going vegan I would say, with only the exception to B12 this is the number one health food that has improved my energy levels, health, skin, everything!
They are these tiny little black seeds that have been used by the Aztecs for centuries. They are the HIGHEST PLANT SOURCE OF OMEGA 3 and also a great source of protein, iron, calcium and fibre. The recommended straight way of taking them is soaking a couple of table spoons in a 1L of water overnight in a bottle and just drinking it all the next day. This is what I do and I love it, but you can also ad them to cooking, make a jelly paste out of them and a whole bunch of other stuff, here's the supplier I get mine from but you can also get them from health food shops:

I reckon this is the best pimple/dryskin/oily skin/dull hair cure, they are great!

I take 'Cenovis multivitamins and minerals'- but only half a day as im already pretty good with the nutrient intake. I asked the pharmacist if there was any animal product in them and he checked and said no, so im taking his word.

That actually might be a good idea, purchasing the supplements from a chemist and asking the people there. They might even give you some advice for which ones to take.

Another reallllyy good thing is flaxide oil, which i mix a tablespoon with my cereal every morning. Its extreamly high in omega 3 and I think theres more in it than fish.

I used to get the multi vitamins from the Cruelty free Shop, but figured, I eat healthy so don't really need it. My blood tests were good.

But I take B12 and Omega Flaxseed caps (as I hate Flaxseed oil!). Both are available from the Cruelty free Shop  happy
