On how vegetarians face great risk in their dietAug 04, 2016 / By Bodyfuelz
If you are a vegetarian or recently converted to vegetarianism, we have some interesting information
You are a vegetarian because you believe that a food devoid of red meat and/or other animal products will give you a low-fat, high fiber content and a well balanced food. Also, ethical issues of animal cruelty, environmental problems due to animal farming and fear of foot and mouth disease, may have convinced to go vegan.
But did you know a vegetarian diet is almost devoid of a very important nutrient which helps in supply of energy to your body? That nutrient is called L-Carnitine.
But first let us take a look at the risks and benefits of vegetarian diet.
Benefits of a Vegetarian diet:
- Lower intake of saturated fatty acids and cholesterol
- Higher intake of Vitamins
- Higher intake of anti-oxidants
- Higher intake of fibres
- Higher intake of purines.
- Risks of a Vegetarian Diet:-
- Low consumption of L-Carnitine
- Low than required consumption of Vitamin B12
- Low iron consumption
- Lower Zinc, Iodine and selenium consumption
- Lower protein consumption & lower protein quantity of plant food.
What L-Carnitine does for you:
As we mentioned earlier, L-Carnitine plays a key role in providing energy in your body. It basically transports fatty acids into your body cells, burns it inside mitochondria (oxidation) and thus releases energy. This makes L-Carnitine the most natural, effective and safest nutrient for fat burning and energy generation for your body.
Why should you consume L-Carnitine?
Though, a vegetarian diet can be a healthy choice and has various benefits, there are some nutritional risks associated with being a vegetarian. Animal products such as lamb, beef and pork contain the highest amount of dietary L- Carnitine. Lower levels of L-Carnitine are found in dairy products. In many plants foods, L-Carnitine level cannot be even detected.
Therefore other than the limited amount naturally produced by the body, strict vegetarians have negligible sources of this nutrient.
The best source of L-Carnitine for vegetarians is by dietary supplements from non-animal based products to meet the nutritional requirement.
