About this talk

With the recent launch of the documentary “Game-changers”, many have adopted a plant-based lifestyle. Perhaps it’s the science that has been cited, the compelling storyline or even the ethics of it, but to many, it appears that the need to 100% plant fuelled is somewhat non-negotiable.

Yet, how exactly does a vegan lifestyle scientifically impact our physiology? Is it really as simple as changing over to a plant-based diet to revitalise your health as portrayed or is there more to it?

Given the stressed and polluted environment we live in, there is an increased demand for nutrients to support optimal health. This means an increased need to understand what our individual bodies require and whether the foods we consume has the complimentary nutrition.

As such, this seminar aims to shed some information on the benefits, contraindications and possible solutions on embarking on a plant-based diet.

Key Takeaways:

• Understanding the benefits of a vegan diet • Identifying the contraindications of being strictly plant-based • Solutions to overcome nutritional discrepancies • Supplementation to complement a vegan lifestyle
