The Benefits Of A Vegetarian Diet


A vegetarian diet can offer many benefits. With the following information everyone can get a little insight:

⠀⠀

Strengthen the heart health

⠀⠀

A vegetarian diet rich in fibre and high in potassium can lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol, and lower the risk of heart attack and stroke.

A combination of the four food groups – vegetables, whole cereals, fruits and legumes (lentils, peas, etc.) – offers in a varied combination, a lot of potassium and cholesterol-lowering fibre.

⠀⠀

Contribute to cancer prevention

⠀⠀

One-third of all cancers can be avoided through lifestyle changes and nutrition. Vegetables are rich in antioxidants that scavenge dangerous free radicals that contribute to carcinogenesis. These can be swept even better from the body by an additional fibre-rich diet.

Especially rich in antioxidants are Broccoli and the various types of cabbage.

⠀⠀
Strengthen a healthy intestinal flora

⠀⠀

“We are what we eat.” There is a lot of truth in this saying: numerous studies have shown that the bacteria of the natural intestinal flora are positively influenced by a healthy diet with natural, unprocessed foods. We then have a higher number of bacteria helpful for our digestion, which can successfully reduce/eliminate gastrointestinal discomfort. A healthy colon is the basis for a healthy immune system and a healthy body. In particular, fermented foods such as sauerkraut or kefir are good support for a healthy intestinal flora. They contain bacteria that also occur in our intestines and can thus support digestion.

⠀⠀
To promote a beautiful and healthy skin

⠀⠀

Vegetables and fruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, trace elements and incidentally also have antioxidant properties. Making the change to a healthy and wholesome diet will have a positive effect on the skin’s appearance.
