Organically grow food varieties are riding high on popularity and demand. The fundamental reason for this is that today everyone strives to lead a healthy lifestyle, and organic food gives them that healthy life. In this article, we will talk at length about why should we eat organic food.
Organic foods are made from agricultural products that are grown without utilizing hazardous chemicals and pesticides.
Research says that there has been a five-fold growth in the demand for organic food in the last 6 years in India. A lot of retail chains like Godrej Nature’s Basket, Hyper City, Food Bazaar, Nilgirils, Spencer’s etc make it a point to store organic products.
We Farmizens believe in the idea of eating organic food, and that is very evident from our concept. To convince you further, we will jot down a few reasons that will make you want to swap your conventional veggies with organic veggies.
Our body faces no chemical exposure
Food grown through non-organic route means unwanted fertilizers and pesticides. Prolonged consumption of such food leads to an increased toxicity in our bodies and hence causes innumerable diseases. On the other hand, choosing organic food means zero exposure to harmful chemicals. Thus by eating organic food, we safeguard our bodies against diseases.
Organic food is rich in nutrients
Research says that organic food is rich in many vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients. Organic food also contains a higher level of antioxidants than conventionally grown food. Another study showed that organically grown food products showed 27 percent higher levels of minerals such as calcium and many phytonutrients.
Organic farming preserves soil
Organic food is grown in an environment that has healthy soil and is free of chemicals. The process of growing organic food is such that the soil is not harmed and its health is maintained. Organic farming techniques replenish the soil by returning the nutrients back to it.
Organic food is better tasting
Plants energy at the expense of flavor-producing healthy antioxidants. We all long for a natural flavor and we get that in case of organically grown food that promotes it naturally.
Organic foods fight diseases
The “non-real” foods can do very little to protect us from the array of disease-causing micro-organisms that are out there.
It is the real-food or organically grown food that equips our body with the right water content and nutrition that helps us in fighting disease-causing micro-organisms. Hence we should make it a point to fill up our plates and our tummies with healthy food.
Organic food prevents heart and brain diseases and can also treat cancer and diabetes.
With this, I want to conclude this article by saying that it is high time that we put a full-stop to the unhealthy food that is out there in the market. Instead, we should resort to organic food that is real and not doused in pesticides or grown with artificial fertilizers
