An expert says A Plant-based Diet For Women Can Be Risky

Published on

Despite the fact that a vegan diet is considered healthful and balanced, women who follow a plant-based diet may have difficulty getting pregnant since they are at danger of absorbing insufficient amounts of essential vitamins.

A vegan diet, according to reproductive biologist Grace Dugdale, is healthful and “fashionable,” yet vegans may be deficient in zinc, iron, and vitamin B12 due to their lack of animal consumption.

A vegan diet, on the other hand, may result in a deficiency in Omega 3, which is found in fatty fish, and iodine, which is found in dairy and whitefish.

“If vegans and vegetarians have not been taking the proper supplements, they may have catch-up work to do rebuilding their body’s stores of these nutrients,” she was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

“Women trying to conceive who have depleted levels of these nutrients that they would benefit from starting to eat a small amount of meat and fish,” according to Dugdale.

Dieting without attention can lead to another health issue. Low levels of vitamin B12 “may be associated with an increased risk of dementia,” according to multiple studies.

A prior meta-analysis conducted in the United Kingdom found that eliminating animal-derived foods can help people lose weight.

A three-month vegan diet reduces body weight by an average of 4.1 kg and lowers blood sugar levels, but has no effect on blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, or fat types.
