Have you ever thought you would like to eat more organic foods but not quite sure why? Are Organic foods better than non-organic, and why should we choose them?
Organic food is often considered good for health and the environment due to several reasons. Let us break down some of the reasons to choose organic, and some of the benefits.
10 Reasons to Choose Organic
No synthetic pesticides and fertilizers: Organic farming does not use synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which can be harmful to human health and the environment.
Higher nutrient content: Some studies suggest that organic fruits and vegetables may have a higher nutrient content than conventionally grown produce.
No synthetic hormones or antibiotics: Organic animal products come from animals that are not given synthetic hormones or antibiotics, which can end up in the food we eat and may have negative health effects.
Better for the environment: Organic farming practices are designed to be more sustainable and reduce the impact on the environment. For example, organic farmers use techniques like crop rotation and composting to improve soil health and reduce the use of water and energy.
No artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives: Organic food does not contain artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives, which may be linked to certain health issues.
Health benefits: Organic food does not contain any synthetic additives, so is naturally better for our health. There are so many synthetic, chemical, artificial, processed foods available that are really bad for your health so it is important to include nourishing organic whole foods into your diet whenever possible.
Environmental benefits: Organic farming can help support biodiversity and reduce the use of fossil fuels.
Better taste: Some people believe that organic food tastes better than conventionally grown food. This may be due to the fact that organic food is often fresher and grown using natural methods.
Support for small-scale farmers: Many organic farmers are small-scale farmers who rely on local markets to sell their products. Choosing organic food can help support these farmers and promote sustainable agriculture.
Avoiding GMOs: Organic food does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which some people choose to avoid for health or ethical reasons.
So in summary, Organic food not only tastes better, it is better for you health and for the environment!
How to add Organics to your Diet
Here are some tips on how to incorporate organic foods into your diet:
🥬 Start with the basics: Focus on incorporating organic versions of the foods that you consume the most, such as fruits and vegetables, grains, and dairy products.
🧑🌾 Shop at farmers' markets: Local farmers' markets are a great place to find fresh, locally grown organic produce. This can also be a fun way to try new foods and support your local community.
🍅 Grow your own garden – this is a fun and satisfying way to produce your own fruit and vegetables and know exactly where you food comes from
🥩 Choose organic meat and dairy products: Look for organic options for meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products, as these are often produced without the use of antibiotics and hormones.
🏷️ Read labels carefully: Look for "Certified Organic" logos on packaged foods to ensure that they are certified organic.
Ultimately, whether or not to choose organic food is a personal choice, but just remember it is beneficial to include organic foods into your diet wherever possible. You can start by making small changes and gradually incorporating more organic foods into your diet over time.
If good quality organic foods are hard to find, consider adding an organic whole foods supplement such as Immunity Fuel into your diet.
Certified Organic Supplements
Many probiotic supplements are genetically modified, freeze dried and contain fillers, preservatives, flavours, and colours with no nutritional value.
Immunity Fuel is different.
Our organic probiotic supplement is whole food based - our ingredients are all certified organic, so you know you are getting the best nutritional organic whole foods available.
What’s more, the certified organic whole foods in Immunity Fuel are fermented which makes the organic nutrients ‘bioavailable’ or readily absorbable. It is important to take bioavailable nutrients because if the nutrients cannot be absorbed and utilized by the body, they cannot provide the intended health benefits.
For example, nutrients required for various physiological processes (such as iron for hemoglobin) cannot be utilized by the body if they can’t be absorbed, and so will pass though the digestive system unused. In the case of iron not being absorbed this results in anemia - and many people, especially women, are anemic simply due to this.
Along with the bioavailable nutrients in Immunity Fuel, the multiple strains of good bacteria can keep the gut healthy and digestion working as it should – breaking down the food we eat so all the nutrients can be utilized from that as well. There’s no point eating nutritious organic foods if our bodies can’t digest them.
Immunity Fuel allows you to obtain this nutrient dense, organic and probiotic rich combination in just 1 teaspoon of powder, or 2 vegecaps per day. Getting good bacteria and absorbable nutrients back into the body is one of the easiest ways to allow the body to get into good health – it all starts in the gut!
