Nutritionist & Naturopath Alena Winter from The Herbal Dispensary worked with our Game Changers Challenge contestants throughout their month of eating plant-based. Although a month is often too short a time to see large changes, we still witnessed some very exciting and positive trends suggesting an improvement in metabolic markers:
- One contestant now has all of her Lipid results back within reference ranges! This decreases risk of cardiovascular disease or needing to go on statins.
- Another contestant had a noticeable decrease in the liver enzymes GGT and ALT, suggesting an improvement in liver function and decrease in liver damage or inflammation.
- A couple of contestants had an improvement in HbA1c, which is a marker for glucose dysregulation or diabetes.
- And finally, we also saw a significant decrease in CRP, which is a marker for inflammation!
After a few more months of sustaining these changes we are sure the results would be even greater. It’s amazing to see how dietary changes can make such a difference to how you feel, and how your body is working on the inside, too!
