The much talked of, Vegan diets, are known to help lose weight, have a healthy living and what not. To know the array of additional benefits that vegan diet embodies in its shell, have a look on our following compilation of few major perks of a vegan diet:
Rich in Nutrients
Since these foods make up a larger proportion of a vegan diet than a typical Western diet, they can contribute to a higher daily intake of certain beneficial nutrients. For instance, several studies have reported that vegan diets tend to provide more fiber, antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds. They also appear to be richer in potassium, magnesium, folate and vitamins A, C and E.
Your Weight Loss Catalyzer!
Many observational studies show that vegans tend to be thinner and have lower body mass indexes (BMIs) than non-vegans. In addition, several randomized controlled studies — the gold standard in scientific research — report that vegan diets are more effective for weight loss than the diets they are compared to.
Happy Pancreas and a Smiling Kidney :-)
Going vegan may also have benefits for type 2 diabetes and declining kidney function. Indeed, vegans tend to have lower blood sugar levels, higher insulin sensitivity and up to a 50–78% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Studies even report that vegan diets lower blood sugar levels in diabetics more than the diets from the American Diabetes Association (ADA), American Heart Association (AHA) and National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP).
Say “No” to Cancer
According to the World Health Organization, about one-third of all cancers can be prevented by factors within your control, including diet. For instance, eating legumes regularly may reduce your risk of colorectal cancer by about 9–18%.Vegans generally eat considerably more legumes, fruit and vegetables than non-vegans. This may explain why a recent review of 96 studies found that vegans may benefit from a 15% lower risk of developing or dying from cancer. What\'s more, vegan diets generally contain more soy products, which may offer some protection against breast cancer.
Eating fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes and fiber is linked to a lower risk of heart disease. All of these are generally eaten in large amounts in well-planned vegan diets. Vegans may also have up to a 42% lower risk of dying from heart disease.
Bye-Bye Arthritis! A few studies have reported that a vegan diet has positive effects in people with different types of arthritis. One study randomly assigned 40 arthritic participants to either continue eating their omnivorous diet or switch to a whole-food, plant-based vegan diet for 6 weeks.
