The #1 question we get in our salon is; How do I reach a healthy glowing skin? Maybe its time to consider to go vergatarian today. Why today? It’s World Animal Day 2018!
While vegetarian diets help improve internal health, they also come with external benefits, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support healthy hair, skin, and nails. The key to glowing skin? Swap dairy products, sugar, and high-glycemic foods for carotenoid-packed vegetables those with a dark green, red, and orange hue. The same phytochemicals that protect the plants work overtime to protect you, too, and emit a radiant colour, resembling a fresh summer glow.
The leading cause of death of both men and women in the United States is heart disease. Every day, nearly 2,600 Americans die of some type of heart disease, the most common form being coronary heart disease, also known as coronary artery disease or atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when hard layers of plaque, usually cholesterol deposits, accumulate in major arteries and begin constricting flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. Arterial plaque is also a leading cause of stroke, the fourth greatest killer of Americans each year.
A vegetarian lifestyle that’s low in fibre and high in potassium lowers blood pressure, improves total cholesterol, and reduces the risk for both heart attacks and stroke. To reap the benefits, base your meals around four healthful food groups: vegetables, whole grains, fruits, and legumes (a fancy name for beans, lentils, and peas). This winning food combination is naturally low in sodium, high in potassium, and packed with cholesterol-lowering soluble fibre.
