Benefits of Natural and Organic Foods

Here's a news flash: Natural and organic foods are good for your body. Not convinced? Consider the following facts:


  • They are free from pesticides. It's been proven that more than 400 chemical pesticides are used routinely when farming and there is often a residue left in non-organic food products.

  • They are not genetically modified. Genetically modified ingredients and crops aren't permitted under organic standards.

  • Organic and natural foods do not rely on drugs. Organic farming standards prohibit the usage of antibiotic and growth hormones.

  • Organic food come from sources that can be trusted. In fact, they are inspected to ensure that they are in complete compliance with organic standards.

  • Organic and natural foods are good for the environment. Organic farming causes less pollution from sprays and produces far less carbon dioxide.

  • It tastes great!

Opting to live on natural health food is a decision that you and your body will benefit from. Eating high quality foods will increase energy levels, normalize your weight, and improve your overall health. After enjoying healthy foods for awhile they might become a passion pf yours and you may even find yourself seeking out the best and freshest.

Organic foods tend to contain higher levels of vitamin C, antioxidants, and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and chromium. A really great thing about organic food items is that there are no yucky additives in them. Harmful food additives can contribute to health issues such as migraines, osteoporosis, hyperactivity and heart disease.

If you discover foods that you like that aren't carried by your local grocer, it's a good idea to ask him or her to start carrying some of the them on the shelves. Eating healthy can be addictive and you're likely to find that natural health foods are more readily available. Local farmers, farmers' markets, and most health-food coops are great places to find these items.
