Why do vegan-based amino acid supplements tend to have dosages around 8g per day, while the normal ones aren’t even 1g per day?


I am looking at amino acid supplements, and there’s such a striking difference between the two groups. Keep in mind that vegan-based amino acid supplements are not advertised for vegans only; instead, they are recommended as a daily supplement for vegans and meat eaters alike. Both types of amino acid supplements recommend to not exceed the suggested amount, but their respective suggested amounts have a difference of nearly 800%.

So, why the huge difference?

Supplements tend to over compensate because they are poorly digested and accepted by your body. You end up peeing out most of them.

Eat healthy choices, and you shouldn’t need supplements. They’re largely a scam if you have food choices, but vital if you don’t.
