Plant Based Diet For Health

How does a plant-based diet help your body?

🌱 Increases weight loss: Due to lower intakes of total fat and saturated fat and higher intake of fibre which helps to increase satiety.

🌱 Improves blood glucose levels: Fibre in plant-foods helps stabilize blood sugar levels.

🌱 Decreased levels of total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL): Plant-foods contain no cholesterol. Increasing the intake of unsaturated fats and fibre help lower cholesterol.

🌱 Improves the immune system and reduces inflammation: Plant-foods contain vitamins and minerals necessary for proper immune function; higher intakes of phytochemical and flavonoids with antioxidant properties; reduced saturated fat and increased unsaturated fats; higher bacterial diversity and increase in bacteria that provide anti-inflammatory effects.
