3 Health Benefits of Going the Paleo Way!
Posted in: DIET
Like fashion, health also has a few "trends" that every enthusiast follows. And since we're health conscious by heart, we'd like to share with you something that we've already reported on before: benefits of going Paleo. In our previous post, we've discussed the difference about Vegan and Paleo diet. Today, we're highlighting the benefits of going all-out Paleo. If you’ve never heard of this diet before, the Paleolithic diet is often referred to as “eating in a primal way” because the theory is that we should eat food the way our ancestors ate before the agricultural revolution began. In short, we only eat natural and unprocessed foods. And yes, processed foods are out of the question. In terms of the health benefits a Paleo diet brings, well, here they are:
Reduce Inflammation in the Body
When you eliminate inflammatory-causing foods such as gluten and refined sugars, you let your body have a “healthy” break. Opting for a Paleo diet reduces this risk, as well as heart diseases, chronic diseases and arthritis. This is due to the fact that in a Paleolothic diet, organs can detox.
It Boosts Brain Power
There's an old adage that "what you eat affects how you feel". Scientists believe that a healthy gut is quite crucial in terms of your mental wellbeing. So when you feed yourself with good fats found in meat such as chicken breast and salmon, you give your brain a chance to perform at its best. A diet that is low in omega-3s can lead to mood swings, fatigue, depression and more.
You Get Better Sleep
Another health benefit you can get out of doing a Paleolithic diet is having a good night’s sleep. Who wouldn’t want that, right? When you cut out empty calories and excess chemicals, balance your blood sugar levels and your diet; you will eventually get better sleep. To make things clearer, the less energy your body uses to fight off toxins and chemicals, the greater amount of good sleep you get.
Other research suggests that when you do the Paleo diet, you remove foods that ruin your system, which leads to a healthier bowel movement. You also get to have happier cells due to the foods you consume while on this specific diet. So if you’re thinking of going Paleolithic in terms of your diet regimen, consider going over the benefits if it’s align to your #healthgoals.
