Last month I attended the seminar “Finding the Core Value” in which one of the speaker is a cancer survivor specifically colon cancer. Before I am not aware how organic foods works in bringing your body in a estate of wellness.

It is true that one of the most important aspects of staying healthy is with the food that we eat. The food that we eat at each mealtime, or snack time determines the kind of nutrients that we would be getting. The certain amounts of these nutrients also matter as any excessive or insufficiency may lead to complications and eventually illness on the individual. Staying healthy with organic food has been frowned upon by a majority of the society as fast foods and processed food products are made available in the groceries and supermarkets. These processed foods are advertised with as much flavorings as budget to keep them in the diet of the people.

Organic food has been known to be superior in beneficial outcomes to the body than their artificial
and processed counterparts. Better Bowel Movement

Organic food, which usually come in the form of fresh vegetable and fruit produce, and organically fed animals contribute to a higher stability in bowel movement. For one, the fiber content of these fresh produce are still intact and almost undamaged. This high fiber content or quality is able to absorb the fluids in the intestines and form a solid fecal mass, good for excretion. Think if these fibers as a broom passed through our intestines. The higher quality of the bristles, the better efficiency there is in sweeping away old fecal deposits in the intestinal tract. This therefore allows better nutrient absorption on succeeding nutrient passes.

It Reduces Health Risks

With artificially prepared market produce such as vegetables, fruits, and meat, the individual ingesting them are subject to all the pesticides and artificial drug enhancers that were used. Some of these harmful chemicals embed in the produce and may not be properly cleansed until cooking.

Organically prepared meat and produce are grown without the chemicals, pesticides and the like which would have been created to kill pests thereby reducing the risk of unwanted illness.  Common illnesses that occur with chemicals accidentally ingested are related to the  gastrointestinal tract.

Contains Higher Nutrient Levels

Organic foods retain the natural amount of nutritive value that they should ideally be containing. As opposed to artificially processed foods, these organic foods have not yet been subjected to the different processing methods which transform the original food product into several forms. Changing its structure, and applying heat to these organic foods, as well as with simple slicing, would cause a part of the nutrient value to disintegrate and be lost in the whole process.

The biggest culprit in this manner is canned goods which have passed through countless processing bins, and artificial flavorings to produce the replica of a supposed food product. Furthermore, the main harmful ingredient of canned goods is preservatives. Simply put, preservatives are chemical agents used to lessen the normal process of deterioration of all organic
products.

Better Environment

With the method of growing for organic food products, the environment is saved from chemical alteration by the chemicals and pesticides that should have been otherwise used. Ecological balance is helped maintained in this method and would result to a better living environment of the individual as well.

Still it is important to consume non-organic vegetables better than no vegetables. That may sound like common sense, but I know that I got so scared by the environment-movement, that I should buy organic fruits and veggies only, even though I did not have much money. I restricted myself to one or two pieces of fruit a day, and some grams of veggies.  But, patronizing the idea of staying healthy with organic food is a good way to maximize nutritive efficiency in a person’s body system and out of a person by the environment and its contribution to the individual’s well being.
