9 benefits of being a vegan

28-10-2015

To celebrate World Vegan Month we’ve decided to show you just why being a vegan isn’t all about the veggies, it’s actually better for you. Here’s why…

1.) “Oh, you only have five a day?”

Five? Try doubling that. On a vegan based diet you’re more likely to intake double the amount of daily fruit and veg. Your insides will be smiling.

2.) Fighting diseases one veggie at a time.

The additional antioxidants can help boost your immune system.

3.) Oodles and oodles of energy.

Your energy levels will be improved, so release your inner Beyoncé and booty shake down the fruit and veg aisle of your local supermarket!

4.) Do it for the environment, man.

One of the best ways to lower your carbon footprint is to avoid animal products – this goes way beyond the problem of cow flatulence!

5.) Live longer.

According to several studies, by following a vegan diet you are likely to increase your life span up to six years longer than your meat-eating counterparts!

6.) Stop with the sniffling!

A reduction in dairy, meat and eggs can lead to the alleviation of unexplainable allergy symptoms.

7.) Sleep soundly and feel great!

A study on the physiological benefits of a vegan diet suggests that those on a purely plant based diet wake to feel more refreshed.

8.) A vegan diet doesn’t have to be boring.

Just because you’re eating green doesn’t mean you can’t have a treat! Check out our 9BAR blog for delicious vegan-spiration.

9.) Look great, feel great!
