Going plant-based seems to be the next big thing and there are many legitimate reasons why doing so can be amazing for you. For some inspiration and a peak at what benefits you can expect from going meat-less, check out our list.
1. You’ll reduce inflammation in your body.
Eating meat, cheese and highly processed foods significantly increases the chance that you will suffer from chronic inflammation in your body. While short-term inflammation after an injury is normal, long-term inflammation that lasts over a month is not. Having this condition can lead to a variety of issues including atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases among other conditions. Alternatively, plant based diets are naturally anti-inflammatory because they are high in fiber, antioxidants and other phytonutrients.
