American scientists compared the effects of vegan and meat diets on human health.
In particular, researchers from the Institute for clinical and experimental medicine and Institute of endocrinology in Prague believe that a vegetable diet contributes to the presence of certain intestinal hormones that help regulate blood pressure, according to Hyser.
Moreover, these same hormones are responsible for satiety and are given to overeat. In scientific work the research team examined health records of 60 men, 20 of whom were obese, 20 – diabetes 2-type, 20 – control group.
People who ate vegetarian diet had higher levels of beneficial hormones. The scientists randomly divided the participants into two groups: the first diet was a vegan diet; in the second – meat products and cheeses.
The researchers also compared diets for calories and macronutrients.
Regardless of whether suffered by the participants of the experiment from diabetes, obesity or had any health problems, people who ate vegetarian diet had higher levels of beneficial hormones in the intestine.
Plant foods are rich in fiber, which adds extra calories.
These hormones help regulate glucose insulin and energy levels. They also help to increase the feeling of satiety, thus promoting weight loss.
According to researchers, people can feel more intense because plant foods are rich in fiber, which enhances the saturation but does not add extra calories.
Such hormones help to reduce weight, improve insulin secretion, normalize blood sugar levels and improve our health.
“The fact that the choice of diet affects the production of healthy hormones is important for people with diabetes of the 2nd type or problems with weight,” says one of the study’s authors Khan Koleva.
