The National Diet and Nutrition Survey identified a number of key inadequacies in men’s diets. While Brits all still tend to not eat enough fruit & veg, not enough fibre and too much saturated fat, men specifically are likely to be lacking in Folate, Vitamin D and Selenium.
The good news is, that FOGA Plantshakes give you 2 servings of fruit & veg and 100% of your daily needs of all of these nutrients, but how else are they helping you? Well, amongst the 71 research-proven benefits you’ll find reduced fatigue, brain & cognitive benefits, hair loss prevention, muscle health, fertility and more.
Let’s get into how…
B vitamins play a particularly important role in energy metabolism by converting the food you eat into ATP, the energy that fuels your cells. Selenium is also involved in energy metabolism, as well as being an antioxidant. Iron is essential for carrying oxygen to your cells. All 3 of these nutrients are present in FOGA plantshakes and have been shown to reduce fatigue.
Hair Loss Prevention
Worried about your hairline looking more & more like your dad’s? Your genetics and age will, of course, play a huge role, but your diet does too. Biotin has been shown to be critical for healthy stimulated hair follicles, as have folate, riboflavin and vitamin B12 – they’re all in abundance in every plantshake. What’s more, 100% of your daily copper needs may help with maintaining normal hair pigmentation too!
Vitamin D is essential for healthy muscles, with research showing that it can help to reduce the risk of Falls (and resulting injuries) in the elderly. Low levels of vitamin D have also been linked with muscle weakness. Selenium is also important for muscle health, as well as being an antioxidant.
Selenium is important for both male and female fertility, as well as being an antioxidant. Research has shown that selenium can improve sperm quality in men and increase the chances of pregnancy in women. Vitamin B12, zinc and Vitamin E are all also involved in healthy reproductive function, so you’ll find 100% of all of them in every shake.
Brain & Cognitive Function
There’s a wealth of nutrients associated with supporting normal brain & cognitive function – and we’ve packed as many of them into every plantshake as possible. Pantothenic acid & iodine are essential for mental performance and cognitive function, and antioxidants help protect the cells in your brain from oxidative stress, maintaining brain health.
Blood Glucose Control
Eating just one extra portion of fruit & veg has been shown to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 50%. Your daily plantshake covers this off in one go, and the high fibre level to slow sugar absorption is enhanced with 100% RDA of Chromium to help control your insulin response.
Vitamin C contributes to the production of collagen, helping to keep your joints & connective tissues healthy. Antioxidants like polyphenols and minerals like manganese & copper help to protect and maintain your joints too.
Your plantshakes are sky high in antioxidants. From naturally occurring phytonutrients in the fruit & Veggies like polyphenols & carotenoids, to vitamins & minerals like Vitamin C & E, all these help to protect against oxidative stress. Lycopene, specifically, is a phytonutrient found in red fruits that has been linked with a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
