Why So Many People Are Going Vegan

Why are so many people going vegan

With the numerous extreme detoxes and fad diets out there, it can be difficult to figure out which is the healthiest way to eat. There’s certainly no shortage of options, no matter your goal.

You’ll find diets out there for almost anything. From simply losing a few kilos to balancing blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol. However, there’s one specific diet that’s gaining a lot of attention because it’s ability to provide infinite health benefits. I’m talking about the plant-based diet. Loaded with of seeds, nuts, whole grains and vegetables, the plant-based diet or vegan diet, in my opinion, is one that you should consider. Here’s why everyone is opting for a plant based diet. 

1. It’s chock-full of vitamins

Plant-based foods are rich in vitamins E, C, and K. Furthermore, these vitamins promote collagen as well as calcium production.

2. It’s rich in essential minerals

Essential minerals such as magnesium and potassium are essential for regulating your body’s fluid balance. In addition, they provide cellular energy. What’s more, these minerals are most abundant in almost all vegetables and fruits.

3. It reduces inflammation

Anti-inflammatory compounds such as curcumin, found in turmeric, help reduce pain.

4. It has an abundance of antioxidants

Antioxidants such as resveratrol decrease oxidative stress. You can find them in grapes.

5. It’s loaded with fibre

Legumes have loads of dietary fiber, which helps promote regularity and normal cholesterol levels.

6. It’s free of unhealthy fats

Plants naturally have low trans-fat, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.

7. It contains few processed grains

You can limit artificial ingredients and chemicals that inhibit good health by eating plants.

8. It lowers your risk of disease

According to research, people who follow a plant-based diet have a lower risk of diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

9. It’s naturally detoxifying

Plants have unique compounds like glucosinolates which support liver detoxification. You can find these in broccoli and cauliflower.

10. It’s environmentally friendly

Eating animals produces more greenhouse emissions than automobiles. Therefore, following a plant-based diet can help protect the environment.

So, if you’re considering a plant-based diet but find it too difficult, it’s best to approach a nutritionist to help you achieve your goals using a customized approach.
