Vegetarian Diet can Slow Down the Ageing Process

More and more people around the world are taking the plunge and cutting back on the meat that they were consuming - or even cutting out animal products altogether and going vegan.

Green leafy vegetables have low saturated fats and no cholesterol, hence vegetarians develop less cardiovascular problems. They are at less risk of heart attacks and strokes. Besides, potassium in vegetarian dishes helps in regulating blood pressure.

Also a study found that vegetarianism delays the onset of ageing. It strengthens the immunity as it is rich in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The study also said that there are chances of vegetarians outliving the non- vegetarians by six years. Include garlic, nut, berries in your daily diet to reduce the process of ageing.

Vegetables have less calories and are laden with fibre which help in keeping diabetes and obesity at bay. They are a complete pack of nutrients. If a meat-eater questions about the lack of protein in a vegetarian's diet, remember soy-based product tofu is a source of protein.
