The Benefits of a Vegan Diet
With the increase in the number of people who have adopted the vegan lifestyle, it’s important to know there’s more to the vegan diet than meets the eye. Veganism has benefits for your health. According to research done by Dalhousie University, more than 850,000 Canadians consider themselves vegan. So what’s the benefit of this diet? A vegan diet doesn’t include the consumption of animal products including meat, seafood, eggs and dairy.
There are many misconceptions regarding the ability of a vegan diet to provide necessary vitamins and minerals. In order to incorporate all of the necessary elements, a healthy diet needs to be balanced and catered to the individual. One of these necessary vitamins not found in fruits and vegetables is B12, a vitamin needed for metabolism and prevention of nerve damage. For those who are vegan, B12 can be found in fortified dairy alternative beverages such as soy, almond and rice milk. It can also be found in vegan breakfast cereals. Ensuring that your diet has all the vitamins is the key.
What are the health benefits of a vegan diet?
