Health: Cholesterol will be controlled by vegetarian diet! did you now?


Vegetarian Diet: Vegetarian diet can help in reducing the cholesterol level in your body. This information has come to the fore after reviewing about 50 research. Researchers found that vegetarians usually eat more greens, fruits and nuts, which means they are consuming less amount of saturated fat. These foods are naturally rich in things like soluble fibre, soy protein and plant sterols (a type of cholesterol found in plants), which do not allow the amount of cholesterol in our body to increase.


According to the report of the English website Daily Mail, researchers believe that eating green vegetables like greens can be better for those who are concerned about their heart health. High cholesterol is more harmful to our body also because it is not known about it.

What is cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a fatty wax-like substance that is present in every cell of your body. It increases the risk of diseases like coronary heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The research, led by Dr Yoko Yokoyama of Keio University in Fujisawa, found that vegetarians had 29.2 milligrams less total cholesterol per deciliter (one-tenth of a litre) than meat eaters.

Cholesterol causes heart attack
If cholesterol builds up in your arteries, it can reduce blood flow, which causes blockage in blood vessels and increases the risk of a heart attack. On the other hand, if the vessels carrying blood to our brain get blocked, we are at risk of stroke.


Stay healthy with a vegetarian diet
According to a report in Medical News Today, people who have followed a vegetarian diet pattern for a long time, their body can remain more healthy. The researchers say they encourage people to be mindful of their nutrition. They believe that along with reducing cholesterol with a plant-based diet, it is also healthy for our bodies.
