In this video, we’re going to talk about the most important nutrient if you are a vegan trying to do the ketogenic diet plan. 

One of the challenges of a vegan keto diet is keeping carbs low, keeping protein high, and getting enough nutrients (b12, iron, vitamin A/D, trace minerals). 

The main nutrient that those on a vegan ketogenic diet always seem to be deficient in is essential fatty acids.

There are actually two of these fatty acids:

1. Omega 6 Linoleic Acid (This one is pretty easy to get)
2. Omega 3-Alpha-Linoleic Acid (This is the one to be more concerned about)

Omega 3-Alpha-Linoleic acid doesn’t really do you much good unless it converts into healthy fats called EPA and DHA. These two fats are vitally important if you’re a vegan. But, it’s difficult to get this conversion—especially if you’re a vegan. 

Best Source of Omega 3 Fatty Acid:

• Walnuts 
• Chia Seeds 
• Flax Seeds 
• Microalgae – **For Vegans 

Importance of EPA and DHA:

• Brain Physiology 
• Nervous System 
• Anti-inflammatory 
• Stabilizing Mood 
• Preventing Depression, Anxiety 
• Maintaining Cognitive Function 

Microalgae is essential if you’re on a vegan keto eating plan. Be sure the version you take is vegan and make sure it has both EPA and DHA.
