Diet of vegan people

Here are three reasons why the vegan or vegetarian people get aged faster than others;

Carbohydrate based diet

Most vegetarians are carburation generally, they will replace the meat, seafood, and other dairy products with the bread, starches and meat substitutes.

These things are very high in sugar and they are acidic too. The in taking of high carbohydrates may lead to elevated blood levels and the over in taking of sugar items may also lead to the sensitivity to the insulin and cause the chronic disease.

Lack of fatty acids

The meat, fish are a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids and they are very important for the body. So that the levels of these fatty acids will be very lesser in the vegan but they intake the omega-6 fatty acids which are contained with the soy, margarine, vegetable oils and also in baked foods.

This omega-6 mostly performs similar things that omega-3 does. But even though the omega-3 is very effective than the omega-6.

No availability of collagen

The collagen is a very important protein in the connective tissues like hair, nails, teeth, and joints. The body naturally produces collagen but it will be not sufficient, they are also available in the meat and fish, but the vegetarian people will not eat it. The collagen plays a vital role in maintaining anti-aging factors.

The vegan diet and anti-aging properties are interconnected to one another when you are following the diet in the right way you could maintain your skin.
