Benefits of Eating Organic Food

An organic food minimizes the exposure towards pesticides which have been proven to cause a large amount of toxic to be accumulated in the diet and is especially critical for children. Organic grown foods have reduced the amount of heavy metal such as lead and mercury. There is a large amount of fiber and nutrients in organic food, therefore the body are able to absorb more of them. Organic food normally tastes better than normal grown food.

Organic food promotes environmental friendliness by not using any pesticides or chemicals to destroy the soil or land.

There are more antioxidants in Organic Food. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals and transform them into non-damaging compounds. These prevent cellular damage, which in turn slows ageing, strengthens immunity, and decrease the risk of cancer and other health problems.

Common antioxidants include Vitamins A, C and E and compounds called carotenoids, such as beta-carotenem which gives fruits and vegetables its deep and rich color. Deep-colored fruits and vegetables, such as blueberries, plums, strawberries, broccoli, and red cabbage, are rich in antioxidants.
