The Plus Formula

The 'Big 3'

Complement Plus is based on the same basic formula as Complement spray, providing B12, D3 and long-chain Omega-3s - the essential nutrients that even well-designed vegan diets often lack.

The Essential Extras

Based on the prevailing science, we included the essential nutrients that aren't found abundantly in, or aren't adequately absorbed from, plant foods: iodine, Vitamin K2, magnesium, selenium and zinc.

The Smart Parts

The Plus sign isn't just for the extra nutrients - it's for what they do together. We've made sure that the ingredients truly complement each other, improving the absorption rates and their beneficial effects in the body.

The 'Big 3'

Complement Plus is based on the same basic formula as Complement spray, providing B12, D3 and long-chain Omega-3s - the essential nutrients that even well-designed vegan diets often lack.

Essential Extras

Based on feedback from our scientific advisors and our community, we added just a handful of extra nutrients that aren't found abundantly in plant foods: iodine, Vitamin K2, magnesium, selenium and zinc.

The Smart Parts

The Plus sign isn't just for the extra nutrients - it's for what they do together. We've made sure that the ingredients truly complement each other, improving the absorption rates and their beneficial effects in the body.

"Ever since I helped create Complement™, my family and I have enjoyed the peace of mind that comes from knowing we're getting three critical nutrients (Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, and DHA/EPA) missing from most plant-based diets.

But despite the fact that we eat tons of whole plant foods, we still have to make additional effort to get nutrients that don't show up in our food "by default" — minerals like iodine and selenium, for example, which require us to use iodized salt and remember to eat a Brazil nut each day. I'd much rather get those additional nutrients in my supplement so I don't have to worry about planning for them to show up in my diet.

It's such a relief to know that Complement Plus™ provides all of that and more, without all the unnecessary extras in most multivitamins — so that we can eat plant-based and know that we're getting everything we need, without the added stress of having to track down the handful of nutrients that tend not to show up in our food. And, most importantly, so that I can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'm setting my children up for long-term health."

Can your supplement brand say all that?

WHAT'S INSIDE?

VITAMIN B12

Soil bacteria produce Vitamin B12 — which is essential for humans in order to protect neural health and reduce inflammation. But modern agriculture and other human behaviors decimate these bacterial colonies that produce B12.

Benefits: Supports red blood cell formation, neurological function, and DNA synthesis, and for avoiding pernicious anemia.

The Smart Part: Complement Plus™ contains 300mcg of B12 per daily serving, combining methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, the easiest forms for the body to absorb and use.

VITAMIN D3

We love nature and spending time outdoors. But we also wear clothing, and most of us work inside during daylight hours. That means our natural ability to soak up the sun's rays is limited, and as a result, many of us — regardless of dietary pattern — might be deficient in Vitamin D

Benefits: Protects from a host of chronic diseases, from osteoporosis to heart disease, some cancers, and even multiple sclerosis.

The Smart Part: While many vegan multivitamins contain the less effective D2 form, Complement Plus™ provides 2,000 IU of the only truly vegan D3 available (Vitashine, sourced from lichen) per daily serving.

DHA/EPA Omega-3s

Vegan food sources of Omega-3s like flax and chia seeds don't provide two essential types — namely DHA and EPA. Seeds provide ALA Omega-3's, and are an amazing addition to your plate, but most people do not convert ALA into DHA and EPA.

Benefits: Everything from brain health and regulating your cholesterol, to powering your nervous system and increasing your energy levels

The Smart Part: Complement Plus™ includes 300 mg of DHA and 150mg of EPA per daily serving, sustainably sourced from algae grown under controlled conditions and tested for purity.

VITAMIN K2

K2 isn't available in plant-based foods except for natto, a Japanese fermented soy product (and it's not in tempeh), so those eating Western diets need to supplement in order to get it.

Benefits: Helps with blood clotting, reduces the risk of heart disease, prostate cancer and osteoporosis.

The Smart Part: Vitamin K2 is the natural partner to Vitamin D3, acting as a regulator for increased calcium uptake and promoting good bone health. Complement Plus™ includes 50mcg of Vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (the natural and most absorbable form of K2) per daily serving, sourced from bacteria.

IODINE

Worldwide, iodine deficiency affects two billion people and is the leading preventable cause of intellectual and developmental disabilities. In plant foods, iodine is found inconsistently and depends on the iodine content of the soil. It's possible to get enough iodine if you regularly eat seaweed (multiple times a week), or use iodized salt, but this is one essential nutrient that shouldn't be overlooked whether you're vegan or not.

Benefits: Supports healthy thyroid function, which regulates the metabolism.

The Smart Part: Complement Plus™ includes 150mcg of Iodine per daily serving, sustainably sourced from kelp.

MAGNESIUM

Soil depletion is a major cause of Magnesium deficiency in the overall population, and affects vegans as well as non-vegans.

Benefits: Affects your mood, weight, sleep health, regularity, heart beat, energy, metabolism, how you feel through the day physically, and can even affect PMS and depression.

The Smart Part: Magnesium works to increase the efficiency of Iodine and helps regulate the thyroid function. Complement Plus™ includes 200 mg of Magnesium per daily serving, in the form of magnesium citrate, the form that's easiest absorbed by the body.

SELENIUM

Our depleted soil may mean that plant foods, in general, do not contain enough Selenium (and that's even true for some Brazil nuts).

Benefits: Helps protect from neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, mood changes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as reproductive problems in men and women.

The Smart Part: Similar to Magnesium, Selenium works in tandem with Iodine to promote healthy thyroid function and metabolism, as well as the removal of heavy metals from the body. Complement Plus™ includes 50mcg of Selenium per daily serving, in the naturally occurring, plant-sourced form of L-selenomethionine.

ZINC

Legumes and seeds are the best natural sources on a plant-based diets, but vegans who avoid those food groups, as well as those who are worried about its bioavailability can benefit from the addition of Zinc with Complement Plus™.

Benefits: Assists with carbohydrate metabolism, efficient production of testosterone to prevent estrogen dominance, helps enhance the skin and nails, your sense of smell, healthy growth, healthy eyesight, wound healing, and a well-functioning immune system.

The Smart Part: Complement Plus™ includes 8mg of Zinc per daily serving, as zinc picolinate, the form easiest for the body to absorb and utilize.

PLUS POLAR LIPIDS

Complement Plus™ is produced with AlmegaPL® algal oil, the only algal oil where the Omega-3s are bound with polar-lipids (phospholipids and glycolipids) – providing the health benefits of EPA with enhanced absorption. AlmegaPL® naturally contains other beneficial compounds including carotenoids, Omega-7, and Chlorophyll.

The Smart Part: Studies show that the polar lipids present in AlmegaPL® algal oil make the absorption rate of DHA and EPA up to 50% higher than krill oil, and 130% higher than fish oil. Complement Plus™ includes 90 mg of polar lipids per daily serving, sourced from algae grown under controlled conditions and tested for purity.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I expect my order? 

Complement Plus™ is in stock, and you can expect your order in 5-7 business days after placing it (international delivery times will vary, of course).

Is Complement Plus™ vegan?

Yes, Complement Plus™ is vegan and cruelty-free. (And so are we.) All of the ingredients are sourced from plants, bacteria, minerals or algae.

Why did you make the capsules black?' 

What you see when you look at Complement Plus™ capsules is the natural color of the AlmegaPL® algal oil we use. Rather than being a processed, refined oil, AlmegaPL® naturally contains other beneficial compounds including carotenoids, Omega-7, and Chlorophyll - which gives it a dark green color that appear nearly black in the capsules. We believe in only using necessary ingredients - and artificial colors are not among them!

What does Complement Plus™ taste like?

Being a capsule, Complement Plus™ should be swallowed without holding it in the mouth, so there's no specific flavor to expect.

Should I take all 3 capsules at once for the daily dose, or one with each meal? 

There shouldn't be any difference between taking all three capsules with a single meal, or spacing them throughout the day.
The one thing that is somewhat important is taking them with meals that contain at least some amount of fat, as this will help with the absorption of the nutrients.

Can my children take Complement Plus™? 

We formulated Complement Plus™ for adults and kids over 12. If you wish to give it to younger children, please consult with your doctor or pediatrician and show them the full ingredients list to determine its suitability and dose.

Can I take Complement Plus™ together with my multivitamin or other supplements? 

Complement Plus™, together with a whole food, plant-based diet, will provide you with the nutrients you need to thrive. Formulated for optimal nutrient intake, Complement Plus™ is safe and non-toxic when taken as directed. If you take another supplement that contains any of the nutrients found in Complement Plus™, you may exceed the tolerable upper intake for that nutrient. Speak with your doctor if you have any questions about how Complement Plus™ works with any other supplements or medications you are taking.

Can I take Complement Plus™ on an empty stomach? 

Complement Plus™ is best taken with food to maximize nutrient absorption - preferably meals that contain at least some amount of fat.

I have a nut allergy, can I take Complement Plus™? 

Yes, Complement Plus™ is nut-free.

Love This Supplement

I am so very impressed with the dedication and cutting-edge expertise of this company's team. This is a great supplement for vegans like myself. All of the nutrients in Complement Plus are just what I need. My only suggestion would be to increase the amount of the K2 and Omega 3's. The quality of the ingredients seems outstanding and the information provided on the product website is both understandable and helpful. Thank you Alpine Organics.

Covers all the basics.

High quality vitamins are hard to come by. Thus one is a perfect “one size fits all” for the average plant based person.
