How healthy are Organically Grown Foods

 

Organic foods are more nutritious and a powerful healing tool for the human body. Organic food is the most delicious type of preventive medicine available to us!

Organic food is nutrient-rich and promotes good health.

In a study published in March 2008 by The Organic Center,1 scientific evidence settled the lingering question: “Are organic foods really more nutritious?

The answer is a resounding “Yes!” examine the following facts:

  • Organic plant-based foods (fruits, vegetables, grains) contain higher levels of eight of 11 nutrients studied, including significantly greater concentrations of health-promoting polyphenols and antioxidants.
  • Organically grown plant-based foods are 25% more nutrient dense, on average, than their conventional food counterparts. That means they deliver more essential nutrients per serving or calorie consumed than conventionally-grown foods.
  • Nutrients present in organic foods are “in a more biologically active form,” according to Neal Davies, a professor at Washington State University (WSU) and a co-author of the center’s report.

A+ for Organic Farming!

In another recent study entitled “Living Soil, Food Quality, and the Future of Food,”2 presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), several inspiring conclusions were offered about the health benefits of organic farming and its nutritional impact in food:

  • Higher levels of fertilizer negatively impact the density of certain nutrients in harvested foodstuffs, which is called the "dilution [of nutrients] effect." Organic farming can, under some circumstances, delay the onset of the "dilution effect."
  • Compared to typical conventional farms, the nitrogen cycle on organic farms is rooted in substantially more complex biological processes and soil-plant interactions; for this reason, organic farming offers great promise in consistently producing nutrient-enriched foods.

Consider the Healthy Power of Organic Milk, Beef, Lamb & Pork Too!

It’s not just veggie and fruit enthusiasts who reap the rewards of organically-grown chow.


 So revise your shopping list to include as much organic food as possible – you can even buy organic foods on a budget – and commit to a healthier, happier you. Your taste buds will thank you too!

Clearly, organic food equals healthier food. It’s that simple – and that tasty too!
