How Your Body Reacts to Veganism

Last Updated: April 14, 2024

Check what the people are saying. Have a look at athletes' and actors' who have transitioned to veganism. They all say the same thing: going vegan was the best thing they ever did and they feel great. What makes veganism so good four our bodies and our minds?

Your Skin Starts to Glow

Get those sweet potatoes and carrots into you! No more fake tan needed. If you're eating a lot of beta-carotene rich foods, your body will naturally start to get a healthy tone that will give you a glow of happiness.

Flushing Out With Ease

Most vegan foods are higher in water content, and they are extremely rich in fibre! It may not be a pleasant idea, but going to the toilet often helps reduce constipation any other intestinal issues you may have. You go like clockwork and you belly is happy.

Clearer Skin

Three to six months into a vegan diet, many will experience clearer skin which can include drastically reduced (or cured) acne and a “healthy glow.” But make sure you get that vitamin D! Carrots and sweetpotatoa are not enough to give you a glow and vitamin d. Vegans need to eat more mushrooms that are grown outside with the sun, go for walks for thirty mins when it is sunny, or take supplements. Vitamin D is essential in supporting bone health, and it has also been linked to reduced risk for depression and even cancer, though further studies are needed.

According to Dr. Michael Holick of Boston University, 10 to 15 minutes of direct sunlight between 10 am – 3 pm daily is an adequate source. For those sensitive to the sun or who live in cloudier climates, many bowls of cereal and plant-milks are fortified, and supplements are also an easy option.

Shinier Hair and Stronger Nails

Many people report experiencing strong, healthy nails after adopting a vegan diet. This is because foods such as millet, cucumbers, and radishes contain silica, and this helps to deliver nutrients to your hair, skin, and nails and works towards keeping them strong and healthy.

Vitamins such as biotin and omega-3 can help to promote healthy hair and nail growth, so if your nails are weak and brittle, it may be worthwhile adding a supplement to your routine, such as the vegan supplements from Vitabiotics. However, omega-3 can also easily be found in natural, plant-based foods.

Increased Energy

Did you know that adopting a vegan diet could leave you feeling more spritely and full of energy? This is one of the main benefits that you’ll notice once you switch to plant-based foods.

Heavy foods that are high in processed fats and sugars can leave you feeling tired and sluggish, and animal products are more difficult for our guts to digest, which can also contribute to tiredness.

On the other hand, foods that are rich in healthy fats, minerals and vitamins can make you feel more energised and awake. Many plant-based foods such as hemp seeds, goji berries and tempeh are rich in these nutrients, and thus can give you that much-needed boost of energy.
