Switching To An All-Organic Diet
Many people love the idea of eating only all natural organic food. This food has never been touched by pesticides or any other type of chemical, so it’s completely free of any type of poisonous substances that could enter the body. A study done with children who made the switch from regular product to organic showed that all pesticides were removed from their bodies within a week. So what’s keeping you from making the change?
Hard to Find Foods
One of the problems is that it’s difficult to find organic foods in some areas. Large chain grocery stores may not carry that many organic foods. Farmers markets often do have organic fruits and vegetables, but they’re not open all year round in most places. There are a number of different co-ops that have opened up around the country, though. These co-ops offer fresh fruits, vegetables, and a limited selection of other foods that have been grown without the use of any chemicals.
But then there’s the other issue: cost. Organic fruits and vegetables are, unfortunately, more expensive to grow. There are a number of reasons why it’s actually cheaper to buy pesticides, but the main issue is that dealing with pests, poor growing seasons, and more can make organic foods very expensive. For some people, there’s just no way they can afford to eat organic because they don’t have enough money to buy all of these more expensive foods.
Lack of Belief
Then there’s the fact that some people simply don’t want to eat organic foods because they don’t believe they are actually any healthier. It’s difficult to make people see reason when there are no strong studies that point to the benefits of eating only organic foods. These foods have added chemicals that are simply not healthy for you.
Avoid Added Chemicals
The fillers and other additives that are often added to supplements and other products can actually damage your body. They can cause cancer, make it harder to absorb vitamins, and more. Additives are also used to take the place of minerals and other ingredients in these supplements. Something that says it contains a specific vitamin may actually only contain a very small amount of it. As long as it meets the minimum amount, the rest can be worthless filler.
Some of the most common additives, flow agents, and fillers you’ll see are stearic acid, silica, stearate, and calcium stearate. These flow agents help mass produce the product by acting as a lubricant, but they’re definitely not healthy for you. Most of them are made from palm oil or hydrogenated cottonseed. These ingredients can build up in the body and actually prevent the absorption of different minerals and supplements. You may be making it harder to get healthy by taking supplements with these things in them.
Many flow agents also contain herbicides and pesticides that have been shown to inhibit T-cell functions and cause allergic reactions. How could you do a detox or work on adding healthy supplements and minerals to your body when you’re taking in things like this?
You may also want to start taking a supplement that contains graviola. Research has shown that a graviola supplement may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
