Health Benefits of Plant Protein

Happy Body

Hear that? It’s the sound of your heart thanking you.

Thinking about bringing more plant-based dinners to the table but worried about your family’s protein intake? Leave those worries at the deli counter. Plant proteins, whether on their own or in combination with other foods, not only provide a complete source of protein (primer: a complete protein is one that includes all nine amino acids the body can’t produce on its own) but also offer a myriad of doctor-approved health benefits—things like lower blood pressure, lowered risk of heart disease, and decreased risk of cancer.1 And an even longer life. Plant lovers live an average of 3.6 years longer than their carnivorous friends.1

And it’s not just what’s in plant protein—it’s what’s not. Cholesterol, trans fats…these aren’t invited to dinner when you start celebrating Meatless Mondays.
