Why Join the Plant based movement ?
What are the health benefits.
In our journey to living a plant based life / vegan diet we have discovered so many health benefits. To be honest there is a lot of great content out about the benefits to your self and not to forget the planet.
Below we have listed out just a few of the benefits to living this way of life. We will continue to inform you and keep you up to date on our social media platforms and news letters.
The one thing you will not hear about from us, is the shock and guilt campaigns we have seen other brands use. We know it happens, we don't agree with it, but we don't need to see it here.
We are about support and encouragement on taking this lifestyle journey.
Below are some fantastic reasons on why this life style is awesome
You’ll lose weight.
Plants are low in calories and high in nutrients, so eating plants will give your body a big nutritional boost. You will eat less, need less and feel fuller. Plants also help keep us regular.
Your digestive system will be on que.
Plants, particularly raw plants, have oodles of nutrients in them. That means that when you’re eating plants, your body will need to do minimal work to digest your food. Eating natural, whole foods, make the digestion process is easy, efficient, pleasant and works perfectly without any extra effort or stress on your part
You’ll have an amazing amount of energy.
Plants give our bodies instant energy! Since they require so little digestion, their nutrients go straight into our blood stream to give us instant, lasting energy. Plus, expelling waste on a regular basis thanks to all the fibre in plants is also very energizing, as waste literally weighs us down and makes us feel sluggish.
You’ll get glowing skin and naturally shining hair and nails.
Your hair, your eyes, your skin, your nails — everything starts to glow as you eat plants. The detoxifying effects of plants, mixed with the elimination benefits of plants, combined with the easily-digestible aspect of plants means less internal toxins giving us acne, less stuck matter giving us baggy eyes, more nutrients to make our hair shine and less time spent on digesting and more time spent on beautifying. Plus, fruits and veggies themselves contain beautifying vitamins, such as the vitamin C in sweet potatoes (which boosts collagen and smooths wrinkles) and lycopene in tomatoes (which helps protect skin from the sun).
You’ll sleep better.
Eating a diet filled with a variety of fruits and veggies is your key to getting balanced nutrition, and balanced nutrition is crucial for getting stellar sleep. Constantly getting a steady and diverse supply of nutrients provides our bodies with the materials necessary for replacing aging cells with new, lively cells and also helps lower our cortisol levels which helps us relax into deep sleep easier. Plus, balanced nutrition helps manage cravings, so we’re not consuming as many sleep-inhibiting stimulants like processed sugars and caffeinated sodas.
You’ll have better sex.
The more colourful the plants you eat, the greater diversity of nutrients you are getting, and believe it or not, having an abundance of nutrients improves your sex life. Specifically, though, zinc, found in chickpeas and pumpkin seeds boosts testosterone production which increases sexual desire and stamina. B vitamins, found in bananas, beans and lentils, affects the amount of sex hormone that is released into the body. Also, a lack of B-vitamins can cause lethargy, which is the opposite of “in the mood.” Same with a vitamin D deficiency, which can lead to depression. Other vitamins and nutrients play roles too, but the bottom line is to eat all the colours to ensure all of your organs are at their best for sexy time.
You’ll be more relaxed.
Plants actually provide us with serotonin, melatonin and tryptophan, three neurotransmitters that help reduce anxiety and boost relaxation. Serotonin is found in fruits like pineapples, bananas, plums and tomatoes, melatonin is found in fenugreek seeds and tryptophan is found in beans and potatoes.
You’ll be sick less.
Your immunity is tied to your gut. A healthy gut equals a healthy immune system. Lucky for you, eating a plant-based diet makes a gut really, really happy because the food is easily digestible and so good at facilitating elimination. Eating a plant-based diet also means that you’re flooding your body with awesome immune-strengthening nutrients on a daily basis.
