We all want to believe that the food we eat is pure, nutritious and safe. But all too often we take one of the most essential requirements of life, for granted. A recent and comprehensive British review of scientific research has shown that organic food is just plain better for us than conventionally-grown varieties. 1
First, organic farming prohibits the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms. The EPA holds records on over 90,000 chemical pesticides and herbicides applied to food crops in the United States. More than 3,000 new synthetic chemical compounds are introduced into the environment every year. These chemicals have been shown to have serious consequences on developing children, human endocrine systems, and are directly linked to most types of cancer. 2,3
Second, organic food contains higher levels of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. A review of 41 studies found statistically lower levels of Vitamin C, iron, magnesium and antioxidant flavonoids in non-organic crops. 4
Even animals benefit from organic foods. A report by the University of Wales comparing energy efficiency, production capacity and health of dairy cows, found an increase in the protein content of milk and the general well being of organic herds.5 For these reasons, Greens Plus has sourced the finest Certified Organic and Free-range protein powders blended with our Award-winning Superfood formula.
