If you’ve ever met anyone who is vegan, then you’ve probably heard an enthusiastic and unsolicited explanation of how it works and all the health and environmental benefits. In simplest terms, veganism is a way of living that, as much as possible, excludes all forms of exploitation and consumption of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose. Back when Pure for Men was but a twinkle in our eyes, we did the research and committed to providing strictly vegan, non-GMO products that are never tested on animals — for the health of humans and the planet we inhabit. Below are our top three, scientifically-proven benefits to veganism and vegan products. We’re not here to convince you to go all-the-way vegan, but rather to consider that the best gift you can give yourself and others is your own personal health. Cruelty and Carbon Emissions Animal agriculture and meat consumption are significant contributors to global warming. If everyone in the U.S. replaced a quarter of their meat consumption with plant proteins, we’d save about 82 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year- a reduction of a little more than 1 percent. In comparison, a fully-vegan population would save 330 million metric tons of emissions per year, saving about 5 percent. Then there are the animals themselves: whether they’re alive for dairy production, meat production, or in labs for testing, the vast majority of them live in unhygienic, overcrowded spaces where the only emotion they experience for their entire existence is fear.
Cleaner and More Nutritious: Vegan products are actually better for your skin, especially if you have sensitive or condition-prone skin like rosacea, eczema, or chronic acne. While animal ingredients can be harsh and clog pores, plants are the richest sources of vitamins, minerals,antioxidants, and other essential nutrients. Skin is the largest human organ, and treating it to animal-product-free products means more hydrated, vibrant skin that heals more rapidly. Did you know wrinkles are in fact scars? Some plant-based food for thot. Perfect, Predictable, Painfree Poops Without the naturally perfect plants that make up our Pure For Men fiber supplement, we wouldn’t exist as a company. It’s beloved because it works, and it works because plants are powerful. Beyond wanting to #stayready in the bedroom, (boardwalk, janitor’s closet, etc…) active participation in achieving and maintaining healthy digestion enhances every facet of your life. Poor digestion eventually leads to poor immune function, fatigue, and disease. See also: that scene in Bridesmaids. You know the one.
