Liam Hemsworth is a vegan and sexy

With his unbelievably good looks, there really isn’t a better poster boy for veganism than Liam Hemsworth. That’s right; the Aussie actor’s insane body is entirely fueled by plants—not a steak to be found. While there are many reasons to go vegan, Liam Hemsworth is vegan for his own health, as well as for animal welfare purposes. I mean, honestly, just when you thought the man couldn’t get anymore attractive.

Liam made the decision to go vegan in May, 2015. After he went for a blood-diet analysis, a nutritionist told the star to eat more red meat, which Liam wasn’t down for. “The more red meat I ate,” he admitted, “the worse I felt.” It’s okay, Liam. Too many burgers is a bad idea, anyways.

Black Pepper the super spice

Black Pepper the super spice

Improves Digestion

Consumption of pepper increases the hydrochloric acid secretion in the stomach, thereby facilitating digestion. Proper digestion is essential to avoid diarrhea, constipation, and colic. Pepper also helps prevent the formation of intestinal gas, and when added to a person’s diet, it can promote sweating and urination. Sweating removes toxins and cleans out the pores of the foreign bodies that may have lodged there and it can also remove excess water. In terms of urination, you can remove uric acid, urea, excess water, and fat, since 4% of urine is fat. A good digestion helps in weight loss, makes your overall body function better, and prevents severe gastrointestinal conditions. As black pepper is carminative in nature, it easily expels the gas out of the body in a healthy downward motion, as upward moving gas can be dangerous because it can strain the upper chest cavity and other vital organs.

Weight Loss

The outer layer of peppercorn assists in the breakdown of fat cells. Therefore, peppery foods are a good way to help you shed weight naturally. When fat cells are broken down into their component parts, they are easily processed by the body and applied to other processes and enzymatic reactions, rather than settling in your body and making you overweight. Ayurvedic tea made with black pepper is one of the teas recommended for weight loss.

Skin Care

Pepper helps to cure vitiligo, which is a skin disease that causes some areas of skin to lose its normal pigmentation and turn white. According to researchers in Oregon Health & Science University, the piperine content of pepper can stimulate the skin to produce melanocytes pigment. Topical treatment of piperine combined with ultraviolet light therapy is much better than other harsher, more chemical-based treatments for vitiligo. It also reduces the chances of skin cancer due to excessive ultraviolet radiation.

Antibacterial Quality

The antibacterial property of black pepper helps fight against infections and insect bites. Pepper added to the diet helps keep your arteries clean by acting in a similar way to fiber and scraping excess cholesterol from the walls, thereby helping reduce atherosclerosis, the condition highly responsible for heart attack and stroke. Research by S. Venkat Reddy et al. published in the Phytomedicine journal showed that the compounds present in black pepper were active against Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus sphaericus, Staphylococcus aureus among gram +ve bacteria, and against among certain gram -ve bacterial strains.
