Study says: Vegan diet good for gut hormones

The Study says Vegan diet good for gut hormones: With the vegan diet culture accelerating its trend, a recent study has now suggested that vegetarian diet helps in promoting beneficial gut hormones which are responsible for maintaining blood sugar, satiety, and weight.

As per the study, researchers compared vegetarian meals with meat and paneer food and assessed their effects on hormonal levels in the group of 60 men: 20 with obesity, 20, and 20  of type 2 diabetes who were healthy.

The proportion of calories and macronutrients in the same amount of food was.

In all three groups, the healthy vegan diet has increased beneficial gastrointestinal hormones compared to non-vegan food.

These hormones are included in the regulation of glucose metabolism, insulin secretion, energy homeostasis, satiety, and weight management.

The lead author of the study Hana Kahleova said, “These beneficial gut hormones can help keep weight down, enhance insulin secretion, regulate blood sugar, and keep us feeling full longer.

The fact that simple meal choices can increase the secretion of these healthy hormones has important implications for those with type 2 diabetes or weight problems.”

Earlier studies have shown that plant-based diets are advantageous for weight loss and that those following a plant-based diet have nearly half the risk of developing diabetes, compared with non-vegetarians.

In the Journal of Developmental Science, this study was published.

This study adds to the proof that plant-based diets can help manage and prevent type 2 diabetes and obesity.

The participants of the study across all the three groups also self-reported that the vegan diet increased satiety or feelings of after-meal satisfaction.

In the research, it was also observed that vegan meals are often rich in fiber – a nutrient found in plant foods that adds hugely to the diet without adding extra calories.
