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.
🌱 Reduces the risk of certain health conditions: Such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, certain types of cancer, and obesity.
