      Better Health

      Taking control of your health and quality of life starts with a plant-based diet. Vegetarians tend to have better health, live longer and have a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and some cancers. Fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients and are not only your best bet for disease prevention, they can be an easy way to reverse damage already done. Follow the Power Plate to optimal health.
