The worldwide sports community is embracing a vegan diet in its daily routine to boost the overall performance. Not just bodybuilders but many athletes from different sports games are now turning vegan at a global level. All this began a few years ago and now Veganism has acquired a big space in the nutrition world.
It is proven in many studies that a plant-based diet supplies more protein and other nutrients than a non-vegetarian diet to help a person live a healthy lifestyle. Many campaigns on Veganism are being run across the world to spread the awareness about the benefits of a vegan diet.
Due to this, sports celebrities are now embracing veganism and they are also sharing the positive changes they observe after following a new diet. It was found in a 2019 German study that athletes following a vegan diet with B-12 supplementation get more nutrition than meat-eaters.
Moreover, a lot of articles are available on the internet to advocate the benefits of a vegan diet. And the availability of many plant-based energy drinks and performance enhancers has allowed athletes to easily follow a vegan diet in their daily routine.
Another reason for the high popularity of a vegan diet among sportspersons is that it helps to maintain heart health in a better way. In addition to this, it is found in a study that a vegan diet facilitates a fast recovery of athletes from injury.
Other than following a vegan diet in their daily routine, they are even endorsing different plant-based products. And through their social media platforms, they are asking their followers to go vegan to live a healthy and disease free lifestyle.
