What are the health benefits of a vegan diet?
Plant based diets should contain a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds. Because vegan diets are usually rich in these healthy staples, they tend to be higher in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fibre, while also being low in saturated fats and cholesterol.
Because of this, a vegan diet offers an array of different health benefits. Apart from weight loss, a vegan diet has also been linked to a reduced risk of:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Certain types of cancer, like prostate and colon cancer
As long as it has been well-planned out, a vegan diet can be a healthy way of eating for anyone of any age.
