A study published in the Acta Physiologica Hungarica journal showed that vegan living food diets improve insomnia, rheumatoid arthritis and more.

Method

Hungarian researchers performed a number of studies including dietary interventions and cross-sectional studies on subjects consuming uncooked vegan food called living food and clarified the changes in several parameters related to health risk factors.

Living food consisted of germinated seeds, cereals, sprouts, vegetables, fruits, berries and nuts. Some items are fermented, containing a lot of lactobacilli. The diet was rich in fiber, had very little sodium, and contained no cholesterol. Food items like berries and wheat grass juice are rich in antioxidants such as carotenoids and flavonoids. The subjects eating living food show increased levels of carotenoids and vitamins C and E and lowered cholesterol concentration and urinary excretion of sodium.
