Our expert says:
Unfortunately the iron in plant foods is not bioavailable because it is bound to phytates. You need to take an iron-folic acid supplement and if you have cut out all animal proteins, then you will also be at risk of calcium, zinc, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies. It may thus be a good idea to take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement like Centrum or Supradyn forte, Calcium Sandoz forte and Salmon oil capsules (for omega-3). It would be a pity if you improved your allergies, but developed deficiencies instead.
