What is a vegan diet?
A vegan diet is free of all animal products. It consists of fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, vegetables and plant-based proteins. You won’t find meat, dairy, seafood or honey in this diet! When properly balanced, a vegan diet is rich in vitamins B1, C and E. It is also abundant in folic acid, magnesium and iron, but low in cholesterol and saturated fat.
A vegan diet may help alleviate the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, ischemic heart disease, hypertension and stroke. Americans suffering from obesity may be recommended to go on a vegan diet by doctors to reduce their body mass index and lower blood sugar levels. A vegan diet may protect against some forms of cancers, including prostate, breast and colon. It can also help to alleviate arthritis and improve kidney function.
