The vegan diet often contains higher levels of protective nutrients and phytochemicals (chemicals found naturally in plants like antioxidants) shown to protect against several chronic diseases. Chronic disease such as Type 2 Diabetes can be significantly improved with dietary changes. Vegan diets are associated with weight loss, increased insulin sensitivity, and improved cardiovascular health. In a study where people were put on either a vegan diet or conventional diabetes diet, both diets were associated with sustained reductions in weight and plasma lipid concentrations. However, in an analysis controlling for medication changes, a low-fat vegan diet appeared to improve glycemia and plasma lipids more than the conventional diabetes diet.
Eliminating all animal products from the diet does increase the risk of certain nutritional deficiencies. Micronutrients of special concern for the vegan include Vitamins B12 and Vitamin-D, Calcium, and Omega-3 Fatty Acids – all of which can be found at LuckyVitamin.com.
