The Amazing Health Benefits of Organic Foods In All Aspects of Life

Living a healthy life is a real challenge for most of us these days. With a fast-paced, hectic lifestyle, we often neglect our health. Our habits usually depend on what happens around us, so what is really important is not usually on our minds. But even little change can improve your life, and one of these changes refers to choosing products that are, first of all safe, for you. There is a big question nowadays what are we really intaking through the foods and drinks. Many are concerned about the conventional ways of raising and growing food, including medical experts, so here are some fantastic health benefits of using organic products that can completely alter your well-being.

Health Benefits of Organic Foods

What is wrong with the conventionally-raised and grown food?

It seems that even when we are trying to include some healthy habits in our lives, there is a kind of a stigma about the right way to do such a thing. We all know about fruits and veggies, non-fat or low-fat products, as well as healthy ways to prepare our meals. But how much we know about what we are really preparing? Most products, despite their “healthy names ”, have more harmful features than good ones. It seems that people are not aware of these issues and the untold situation in the food industry today. It’s known that meat and dairy products are GMO, and can contain a list of not so desirable features like antibiotics, pesticides and growth hormones which can cause serious health problems. For example, the use of antibiotics can create antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria etc. Organic food is a good first step to protect ourselves from unnecessary harming our body system.

How does organic food help our body?

The most important thing to know is that all organic products are fresh and pesticide-free. Since there are no chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides, and other agricultural residues that remain on food. For all those, and many other reasons, organic food is safe to consume without worrying about getting Escherichia, or other nasty bacteria. Since there are no bacterias or chemicals, you can be assured that you won’t have any health disorders like digestive dysfunction, headaches, weakened immune system and so on.

How to implement organic food in your diet?

Every single person is a totally different individual. For that reason, and many others, it will depend on how you will prepare and eat your organic products. You can eat them raw, which is the healthiest version. Whether you simple cut organic tomato, onion or carrot and eat it as a salad without any dressing, or you mix fruit or vegetables in a salad, it is all your choice. You can make a smoothie with organic blueberries, bananas, spinach, and coconut milk. By adding quality True Protein whey, which is a 100% natural product, to the smoothie, you will have a full meal which will give you a fantastic boost. Next, you can prepare an all-organic classical meal by cooking, boiling or roasting the food.

What are the main health benefits of organic food?

There are numerous benefits of consuming organic food.

  • First of all, it helps make our immune stronger, thus making us resistant to many diseases.
  • Secondly, all organic foods are GMO-free, which means that you won’t suffer from slower brain growth, internal organ damage, or other gastrointestinal disorder.
  • A study has proven that people who have regularly consumed organic foods have significantly improved their heart rate and have lowered their blood pressure.
  • Due to the fact that there are no toxic chemicals, there are a less allergic reaction or other virus-prone diseases.

What makes food organic?

Organic fruits and vegetables are grown with natural fertilizers, unlike non-organic fruits and vegetables that are grown with synthetic or chemical fertilizers, so your toxic intake is increased by eating it. Organic foods are grown in a more natural environment for that reason they are extremely healthy. Livestock animals must have access to the outdoors because that makes them healthier and more resistant to diseases. The unhealthy animal can not give us a healthy product, that sounds obvious, so be careful when you choose your food from the shelves because sometimes are not as healthy as you think. Also when we use organic food, it is essential to be aware that we are not only helping yourself but our environment too. Fewer chemicals in food industry mean fewer chemicals and toxins everywhere.

How difficult is to find organic food?

Fortunately, today finding organic food is not a problem on most occasions. There is organic food in nearly every market around, and although the first thing we see is a higher price, we mustn’t forget the reason for that. Since we are truly investing in our future, we should strive only for the best. You can always contact your local greengrocer to prepare daily fresh organic produce for you. You can use organic milk or other dairy products or substitutes such as almond milk or coconut milk rather than those mechanically produced. If you can’t find organic food in your local store, then you can go to a local market once a week and purchase enough foods for the entire week or buy in bulk.

All organic food products are guided by very strict standards of production. Besides that, all the foods are fresh, savory and full of juicy flavors, so they are as delicious as they are nutritional and healthy.

    What a great article! Food is life, and I’m always surprised by the fact that it costs more to buy and eat food that is good for us than it is to buy and eat garbage. It’s sad. I’m so thankful I have the option to grow my own, and the privilege to buy organic when I need to. More people need to read this article, for sure!

    1. Hi Lacey,
      I am so glad you liked my article and information. I too think it is sad that processed and junk food is less expensive than healthy food but having you own garden is sure a step that many people can take and is probably the least expensive and healthiest way to go. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Thank you Marla for this. Our family has been transitioning for about a year and a half now off processed food. We raise a lot of our vegetables in an organic garden, and purchase a beef calf and hog from an organic farmer in our area and take it to processing. We do still have others things to get rid of, but it does take time.

    Your article was very well written and I’m so glad I came across it to read.

    1. HI Dianne,
      That’s sounds wonderful that you are cutting out processed foods, raising a lot of your own vegetables in your own garden and purchasing a beef and hog from an organic farmer. It does take time to change and doing one step at at time is a great way to do it. Thank you I am glad you liked my article. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  4. Very informative post. The market is flooded with different types of food now. Its only farmers I guess who get the real food and rest get processed or impure ones. There are many stores available but we can not bet about which one to go for the real food. Genetically modified food are also available in the market that boasts on their best nutrients and quality but no one can be sure.

    1. HI Julia,
      Thank you for reading my article. You are right that GMO foods that no one is sure what damage they cause to our bodies and environment. I think we can find healthy foods if we do our research and buy as much as we can locally. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

  5. We are slowly moving over to more naturally grown foods. I am just too suspicious of grocery store items. I loved the section on which foods are best for our health. I will gladly be adding more of these to our meals!

    1. Hi Julie,
      Glad to hear that you eating more naturally grown foods. I don’t trust most of the store bought myself. I am glad that my article was useful to you. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  6. Thank you for sharing this, Marla. I am trying to get my family off the processed foods and going MORE organic. It is SO much more expensive to buy organic stuff so my goal this year is to grow my own.

    1. Hi Shawna,
      It is really important for your health to stop the processed foods – there are so many chemicals in them and they are so bad for your health. Even you don’t eat all organic just trying healthier made from scratch foods is a lot better choice. Having your own garden is a great choice. Hope you do it It so much less expensive and fun to work a garden. Good luck~ Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  7. I love organic food. I grew up on organic before it was a thing. My grandparent only put fertilizer on the food for export. They always kept a fertilizer free zone for our produce.

    1. HI Monetta,
      Fertilizer is important for growing anything but it the type of fertilizer you use – the chemical fertilizer or the natural fertilizer like fermented compost and manure is very healthy for the soil. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      1. I meant chemical fertilizer. In my St Lucia vocabulary we do not call compost or manure fertilizer we call it nutrients.

          1. No big deal…that’s the power of diversity we learn that the same word can mean different things to different people and under our differences we are still the same.

  8. I wish that we had the same labeling and rules here in Canada, I am always surprised at the amount of approved list of what is allowed on our organic farms in terms of controls an so forth. I am surprised that you have GMO dairy.. that’s something that we do not need to deal with here, nor do we allow hormones or antibodics in our milk and dairy. Its part of the reason we have fought so hard to keep our dairy rules in place.

    Sadly with the last trade deal, our government opened a back door to allow a lot of dried milk products from whole milk, skim milk to cheese powder in to be used in our “processed” foods that no longer meet these codes as they are imported in.

    That will not bother us much as we do not eat processed in that way.. still It worries me as most people in our country do eat them.

    I do not know what its like your area but here organics are 2x to 4x more in cost and the selection is very small if the store carries it at all.

    1. We have GMO everything in the US. We are probably the biggest GMO county in the world. Most of the European countries do not allow it because they know how dangerous it is. It is a fight in the US to stop all this processed and toxic food they sell in the stores. So if you live in Canada you need to start doing your research on GMO and the processed foods. No I wouldn’t say that organic is always that much higher as 2to 4 times. Organics are available in most stores. There are places to buy like Costco that sell organic products in bulk at good reasonable prices or as far as fresh produce from a local grower that sells his produce really reasonable and is organically grown. Their are also farmers markets available in most areas that sell organically grown produce. So organics are available because they are in high demand due to the GMO’s pesticides, and other unhealthy ingredients in foods so people have been really concerned about all the processed stuff. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  9. Pesticide free is a big one. Using heirloom seeds is another way to eat healthier. Wish the big businesses would charge less for a good salad and make French fries and sugar drinks expensive. Why we we grow our food

    1. Hi Candy,
      I agree with you about big business charging less for a fresh salad but unfortunately I don’t see that happening very soon. Heirloom seeds are a great choice. Pesticide free is certainly a major concern to me too. Growing you own food is a great option. thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Would love to know your thoughts!
