Veganism: The Fountain of Youth

From powerful potions to oxygen therapy and routine visits to the plastic surgeon, people have been on a quest to stop the aging process since the dawn of time. Now, according to some of Hollywood’s most famous stars, it seems that a delicious and compassionate vegan diet might finally hold the answer to eternal youth.

The author also discusses the natural glow produced by eating plant-based foods rich in vitamins A and E, such as kale, spinach, and collard greens.

Actress Portia de Rossi concurs. She’s publicly stated that she’s never undergone plastic surgery to keep her youthful appearance and instead credits her good looks to her vegan diet of five years.

Supermodel Christie Brinkley also touts her vegetarian diet for keeping her looking fab. Meat-free since the age of twelve, when it comes to fruits and vegetables, Brinkley advises people to “go for as many colors possible in a day.”

Alicia Silverstone feels so strongly about the benefits of a plant-based diet that she wrote a book about it. According to the Hollywood superstar, friends tell her she looks younger now in her thirties than she did in her twenties.

Transitioning to a plant-based diet is an excellent way to feel great and look fabulous–all while helping animals. For more information on how you can get started, visit
