Opting for a vegan diet and lifestyle can prove to be a complex transition - not just for your diet, but for your overall health. Holland & Barrett stock a range of vegan products to ensure that your body is still getting all those essential nutrients on a vegan diet.
What is a Vegan diet?
Veganism is generally related to lifestyle choices and ethics as well as a diet, as vegans do not consume, use or wear products that have derived from animals. Viewed as a subgroup across many vegetarian diets, veganism often takes a gradual long-term shift in adapting to its specific dietary requirements.
Replacement products are available to maintain the proper consumption levels of nutritious components in animal-based products, such as protein.
This means that vegans need to maintain a balanced diet, and can also choose to take additional supplements to uphold their nutrient consumption.
Many vegans benefit on a personal level, particularly when it comes to their philosophy. However, there are also various health implications that can derive from a vegan diet. Research has noted that vegans generally have lower cholesterol levels and a reasonably lower blood pressure.
Lactose-free milk contains a range of nutrients that are important for the functioning of the body. Moreover, the milk does not leave the bowels full of excess fluid or gas and can ease digestive problems and symptoms such as bloating.
Tofu, a popular vegan foodstuff, is also an excellent source of calcium, iron and amino acids. It is also full of protein and contains minerals such as manganese, selenium and phosphorous.
