A list of supplements that will help vegans:

Alpha Lipoic Acid- to mitigate sugar crashes

Whey Protein- a complete protein that aids in calorie restriction

Oregano oil-To improve possible candida and yeast overgrowth from carbohydrate fermentation

Chromium- for carbohydrate digestion

B vitamins

Coconut oil-EFAs, antibacterial

Olive oil-antinflammatory, good for cancer

Choline-high in eggs

Conjugated Linoleic acid

Phytanic Acid

COQ10

Colostrum-high antioxidants

Not sure "harm" is the word to use if you want to have a productive discussion. Every vegan is aware that they have to set up their diets carefully. Whether they actually do that is another matter, but obviously you can't just eat the non-animal parts of a Standard American Diet and expect to thrive.

 

I would add vegan EPA/DHA to this, which is probably sourced from seaweed but I'm not certain of that.

 

Is there a vegan source of CLA or whey or whatever nutrients are in colostrum?

CLA can be found in certain mushrooms. The anti-cancer and anti-aging aspects of colostrum  are important enough to be part of ones longevity regimen whether or not they are vegan.

Papaya seed extract will help with the possible parasites feeding on sugar.

Another tip that will help your vegan diet is to eat the foods at the top of the list and avoid those at the bottom:

1.Saturated fats(coconut oil, macadamia)

2.Nuts and seeds

3.Vegetables

4.Mushrooms

5.Starchy vegetables(carrot,potato,sweet potato)

6.Grains

7.Fruit

8.Sugary junk food

Interesting about CLA. In fact I looked it up and there is at least one commercial brand of vegan CLA, which is sourced from safflower oil.

 

As for colostrum, most people who are vegans have chosen that path for religious or philosophical reasons, and if you're going to tell them to supplement an animal product, you might as well be telling them to eat a hamburger once in a while. It ain't gonna happen. I don't take colostrum but I do take lactoferrin so I see the point of your suggestion, but I think most vegans will be happy to skip it and settle for the health benefits they receive from (a) the extra phytonutrients in a vegan diet, and (b) not consuming the toxins in animal products, such as omega-6 fatty acids, Neu5Gc and excess iron. Also the carcinogens in cured meat and charred meat.

Veganism is worse than smoking to the body.
