OUR PLANT BASED DIET
It is not a big surprise that plant-based diet has exploded in popularity in recent years. Many advantages have been well documented over the past several decades, such as a lower overall heart disease mortality, sustainable weight management, reduction of medication intake, lower risk of most chronic diseases, decreased incidence of obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia and reverse of coronary disease and type 2 diabetes.
The advantages of plant foods lay on their array of nutrients. Phytochemicals and fibers are the most health-promoting and disease-fighting compounds and plants are the only source of these nutrients, which are completely absent in animals. Plants contain thousands of phytochemicals, such as carotenoids, glucosinolates, and flavonoids, which perform a multitude of beneficial functions such as antioxidation, anti-inflammation, immunity enhancement, protection against some degenerative diseases, cancer activity reduction, just to name a few.
A well-balanced, plant-based diet is composed of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, herbs, spices, and a small number of nuts and seeds.
