Vegan Health And Wellness

For many new vegans, health and wellness is, alongside animal welfare, one of the main reasons why they transition away from a diet full of animal products…and with good reason. Providing you opt for a whole food, plant-based diet (as opposed to living on Oreos and potato chips) when you switch, the odds are in your favor when it comes to feeling better, living longer, and enjoying the later years of your life disease-free.

These are not just idol claims, people. The science is in and numerous studies have shown that eating a whole-food, plant-based diet is one of the best things you can do for both your short- and long-term health. Not only that, if you have a compassionate outlook on life, giving up animal products and refusing to contribute to the suffering of billions of beings globally each year feels pretty good, too.

Now, obviously, the term health and wellness is broad, but we aim to cover the main issues vegans new and old alike may face when following a plant-based diet. We’ll also look at more generic ways in which you can feel better and set yourself on the road to good health, too.
