If you don’t already know…most vegetarians and vegans have beautiful, flawless skin, and if they are older in age, they tend to not look it. They look much younger! This is because there diet is full of a variety of fruits and vegetables. They do not eat any animal protein, which over time not only leads to sagging and tired looking skin, but also leads to many chronic diseases that 116 million people currently suffer from, to include heart disease, cancer, stroke, etc...
One of the first things a vegetarian or vegan is asked is, “Where do you get your protein”? This highlights the misconception in our society that only meat and animal products contain protein, and if not eaten, we risk for protein deficiency. The truth is you get more than enough protein from a plant-based diet! Which leads me back to how to truly anti-age and look 5 to 10 years younger no matter your age! We need to eat a variety of as many fruits and vegetables as we can for optimal beauty. What most of us do not know is that there are literally 1000s of phytonutrients within one fruit or vegetable. Phytonutrients are nutrients derived from plant material that have been shown to be necessary for sustaining human life. They are non-nutritive plant chemicals that contain protective, disease-preventing compounds.
Now, if you are reading this and feel you don’t want to become vegetarian or vegan but still want long lasting beauty and to age and prevent disease as if you were a vegan or vegetarian while still enjoying the foods you like to eat (like me), then a trusted source to get “youth in a bottle” or as I like to call it “vegan in a capsule”, you want to try a whole foods-based product like Juice Plus (you will still want to begin to cut back on eating processed foods and fast food to receive the very best results). I was a vegan for 8 years and stopped because I simply missed having cheese on occasion, so I became vegetarian and since taking Juice Plus for the past year, I am seeing the same results with this product as I did when I was a vegan. This is an all-star product! My hair, skin, and nails look amazing as they did when I was vegan. I’m healthy and haven’t been sick in years! People think I’m 24 and I’m actually 33. So, if you want to look the best you ever could imagine, you will need to either get the USDAs recommended 7 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables per day (which is 3 to 6 cups of fruits and vegetables daily) or start (cheating) taking Juice Plus and live a longer, healthier, happier life!
To Longevity, Health, and Growth!
