If you’re a reader of this site, you’re most probably aware that there are a wide range of nutrients contained in superfoods. The best organic superfoods help reduce the risk of disease and combat the aging process. The antioxidants make you look and feel better. Did you catch the key phrase there though? Organic. To get the most bang for your buck, and more importantly- your health, you need to buy organic.
So what makes food organic?
If a food is grown without pesticides, fertizilers, and hormones, only then can it be certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture. Synthetic/fake chemicals are extremely dangerous for your health, and combining them with superfoods is not a good idea.
Research shows that after being washed, up to 98% of domestically grown peaches still contained high levels of pesticides. These pesticides are not organic obviously, and studies show these compounds become very dangerous when they are allowed to build up in our systems.
It gets worse.
Carcinogens- known cancer causing agents are often present in these pesticides. The more you eat, and the more these disgusting chemicals build up in your body, the more your chances of getting cancer increases. Now I’m not saying you’ll get cancer by eating a peach, but I know for me, I want to do everything I can to ensure I stay as healthy as possible. This is yet another reason to only eat the best all natural foods.
Superfood aside, organic food in general is an especially smart choice if you are pregnant. Your unborn child relies on you for its nutrition, so why would you choose to feed it pesticides and chemicals? Go natural baby!
You’d never feed your child a plate of spinach, blueberries, or any other food if you knew it was covered with dangerous chemicals right? We all want the best for our children so why not feed them the highest quality healthiest foods?
For me, it’s simple. I want the healthiest nutritional options for me and my family, but I also love things that are fast and easy. The best organic superfoods are like a Godsend. Unparalleled nutrition with can’t-beat-it ease.
