"We are living in an age of chronic disease, from diabetes to heart failure it's clear our diets are impacting our health"
Mechanisms of Action
The modern diet has become laden with heavily processed foods containing unholy amounts of refined sugars and unhealthy fats. WFPB is the ultimate anti-thesis to our current state of dietary dismay. By excluding all processed foods we eliminate all the nasties that come along with them, most of which responsible for the current obesity epidemic.
Diabetes Prevention & Management
Red meat has proven to increase insulin resistance, a major factor in developing diabetes. Through reducing our animal protein consumption and moving towards lower-GI carbohydrates such as vegetables & legumes we reset our bodies insulin sensitivity aiding in diabetes management and prevention.
Reduced Heart Disease Risk
Studies continue to prove that those practicing a plant-based diet experience significantly lower rates of heart disease. Why? Animal protein typically comes pared with high amounts of saturated fats, excess saturated fat consumption leads to arterial plaque build up, the result is impaired blood flow to all areas of the body.
Increase Muscle Mass
"When our bodies are filled with nutrient-dense sustenance every cellular processed is optimized, including protein sythesis"
Mechanisms of Action
Through intensive training we breakdown muscle tissue which results in increased levels of free radicals. These free radicals are a by-product of cellular activity however they lead to muscle fatigue, reduced performance, and impaired recovery. The high concentration of anti-oxidants in a plant-based diets help neutralize free radicals leading to quicker recovery.
Improved Cell Oxygenation
Oxygenation of our cells is a crucial aspect of muscle development and repair. The high levels of nitric oxide in a plant-based diet has proven to increase blood flow and arterial diameter whilst also reducing coronary plaque build-up leading to significantly increased levels of cell oxygenation.
Diets high in animal protein often to lead to increased LDL Cholesterol and saturated fat consumption. Scientific studies have demonstrated that the body initiates an inflammatory response when these two components are consumed. By eliminating the consumption of animal protein we decrease muscle inflammation and increase cellular growth.
"Your body is a temple, treat it like one"
Mechanisms of Action
Increased MAO Inhibition
Those suffering from depression typically have elevated levels of monoamine oxidase (MAO) within the brain. MAO breaks down mood regulating neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine resulting in depression. The plant-chemical quercetin inhibits MAO allowing normal regulation of our feel-good hormones. Apples, kale, berries, grapes, onion, and green tea contain high levels of quercetin.
Decreased Arachidonic Acid
Arachidonic Acid (AA) is a long-chain fat found exclusively in animal protein which acts as a precursor to inflammation within the body. When we consume foods high in AA we trigger a chain reaction of inflammation which eventually reaches our brain. Brain inflammation has shown to directly cause feelings of anxiety and depression.
Availability of Serotonin Precursors
Serotonin is the neurotransmitter responsible for a sense of joy and overall well-being. In order for our brain to manufacture serotonin it requires adequate levels of an amino acid known as tryptophan. Tryptophan is found in some meats such as Turkey however our body has a difficult time assimilating the chemical in this form. The more bio-available sources are found in plant foods such as leafy greens, sunflower seeds, watercress, soybeans, pumpkin seeds, mushrooms, broccoli, and peas.
