The Benefits Of Vegetarian And Vegan Diet

The benefits of following a healthy balanced vegeterian or vegan diet are endless.

Healthy Bowels : Vegeterian and vegan diet are generally much higher in both soluble and insoluble fibre, which are fundamentally important for a healthy digestive tract.Trillions of friendly grow in a high-fibre diet and produce the nourishment for the cells of the intestinal lining.They also aid the detoxification of hormones, toxins and cholestrol andmost importantly of all they help to protect the bowel lining from bowel cancer.

 Happy Hearts : There is no doubt that vegeterian and vegan diets contain less saturated fat and cholestrol than a diet that includes meat. As vegeterian and vegan diets are also high in fibre, high in antioxidants, and high in vitamin E they generally provide increased protection against cardiovascular disease.

Acid-Alkaline Balance : Some opportunistic diseases can start to take root when the body becommes too acidic for extended periods. Vegeterians and in particular vegans, are more likely to have a better acid-alkaline balance and increased protection against degenerative diseases than meat-eaters. It is possible to supplement the diet with nutrients to help establish a more alkaline environment, but as always, it’s best to do so under the supervision of a nutrition consultant.

Strong Immunity : The increased level of fresh fruit and vegetables in vegeterian and vegan diets bring in a rich supply of antioxidants and phytonutrients, and these plant chemicals have a good reputation for boosting body immunity.

Enzymes That Spring Clean : Both a vegeterian and vegan diet naturally involve eating high levels of fresh fruit and vegetables, which are themselves packed full of natural enzymes. These enzymes have two major health benefits – firstly, they have a direct effect in your digestion by enhancing the breakdown of foods; secondly, they are capable of being absorbed into the body where they effectively encourage the excretion of dead cells and debris from the blood and the lymph, giving your body a spring clean.

    Eating food derived from plants not only brings us close to Mother Nature, it also keeps us healthy. To be able to benefit from the vegan diet, it is also necessary to know how to prepare these foods so that nutrients will not be lost along the way. I also agree that veggies do give us imunity, energy, and stamina. Which will translate to better attendance in school and work, and better performance.
