Is organic food healthier?
Sometimes it can be tough to make the healthier choice. Many will not consider an organic diet a viable option due to the cost. It’s important to understand this additional cost.
Organic produce is grown without artificial pesticides, herbicides, growth stimulants and other harmful chemicals, colours or preservatives. So, you will not be consuming any genetically modified ingredients. There are also industry-leading animal welfare standards, with all livestock free-range, grass-fed and ethically treated.

Non-organic standards are undoubtedly less stringent, with profit and yield prioritised over quality and nutrition value. As well as producing cleaner food, Crinnion (2010) proposes that organic foods pack in higher levels of certain micronutrients. This includes vitamin C, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium.
These guys are responsible for several crucial bodily functions such as maintaining healthy skin, blood vessels, cartilage, and bones. Other advantages include increased energy levels, mood regulation and better sleep.
Organic meat and dairy also contain a higher percentage of omega-3 essential fatty acids. These fats help your cells perform to their optimum function. Our bodies are unable to produce the sheer amount of omega-3s needed, so we must increase this level through our diet.
So, it’s worthwhile prioritising organic groceries for the sake of your health. There are many ways you can reduce the cost of your organic grocery shop. Check out our Top Tips to Keep Organic Affordable now to find out ways in which you can start saving today.
