Five Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet

      1. Prevents Disease
        Research shows that a plant-forward, whole foods diet can prevent, and sometimes even reverse, chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. It can also minimize your risk of stroke and high cholesterol.
      2. Helps Maintain a Healthy Weight
        Plant-based diets are packed with fiber and healthy nutrients that help fill you up without  adding extra calories, and in turn, you drop the pounds. By replacing certain meats with vegetables, your risk for obesity drops significantly.
      3. Reduces Inflammation
        Chronic internal inflammation can trigger a variety of health issues, and never fully disappears until you figure out the root of the problem. Diet is one of the best ways to heal your body and combat this common issue. A plant-based diet is loaded with phytonutrients, which have tons of anti-inflammatory benefits, and are low in toxins and bacteria.
      4. Boosts Your Immune System
        Plants are packed with vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to fight-off infection. The antioxidants found in plants help strengthen your immune system and keep your cells healthy while fighting-off germs.
      5. Keeps Your Brain Strong
        Research shows that the more vegetables you incorporate into your diet, the lesser your chance of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia later in life. The gut is connected to the brain, and gut inflammation has been linked to depression and anxiety. Those who follow a plant-based diet experience a sharper mind and positive mental well-being, and less symptoms of anxiety and depression.
