The Health Benefits of Choosing Organic Superfoods

Choosing Organic Superfoods for your Health

Apple - Superfood with 18 amino acidsAs you may already be aware, superfoods offer you a wide range of nutrients that can make you feel and look better by helping reduce your risk of disease and by fighting the signs of aging (thanks to all of those antioxidants). What you may not know is that to get the best return on your investment, you really need to purchase organic superfoods.

If a food has been certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture, the distinction means the food was grown without fake pesticides and fertilizers. These fake or synthetic chemicals can be extremely dangerous to our health, so combining them with superfoods to make us healthier just doesn’t make sense.

A study on peaches, for example, found that 98% contained high levels of pesticides even after they were washed and cleaned. These are, of course, not organically grown peaches. While the study doesn’t address the quantities of those pesticides left behind, other research suggests these dangerous compounds can build up in your system so it doesn’t take much on each peach to cause major health problems down the road.

Synthetic chemicals like these often contain carcinogens, better known as cancer causing agents. That means eating them can increase your risk of developing a wide range of cancers. Again, this is where eating organic superfoods makes sense. If you want to consume antioxidants in those foods to reduce your cancer risk, then it doesn’t make sense to be increasing your risk at the same time. You won’t be doing yourself any favors.

If you’re expecting a child or hoping to start a family, organic superfoods make sense for you, too. All of the good nutrients in superfoods can do wonderful things for an unborn baby who is relying on you to fulfill his or her nutritional needs. Without a healthy diet, your child could experience health problems that could last a lifetime. Additionally, the use of pesticides, such as those used on non-organic produce, has been linked to fetal growth problems in studies in New York City.

Furthermore, if you are a parent trying to feed your child healthy foods, you don’t want to offer them a plate of blueberries, pumpkin, spinach or other foods that have been covered in dangerous chemicals. By choosing organic superfoods, you can be confident that you are giving your kids a healthy diet that isn’t tainted by carcinogens or other dangerous chemicals.

The bottom line is that organic superfoods just make more sense. They may cost a little more. You may need to drive to a different store. But, overall, you are going to benefit from delicious, healthy foods that are safe to eat.
