As you age, your body becomes more sensitive. So it’s more important than ever before to make sure what you’re putting into your body is healthy. Is your loved one at retirement age or older? If so, it may be time to incorporate organic food – specifically produce – into their diet. This is a good first step to becoming and staying as healthy as possible.
People of retirement age and over should eat organic, according to recent studies. Numerous benefits can be enjoyed from a diet that consists mostly (if not completely) of organics. Here are some of those benefits.
Not everyone you ask, but most people would agree that in a comparison between traditional foods and organic, a better taste is enjoyed when organic foods are consumed. This phenomenon has everything to do with nutrition and natural flavor. What’s more, less processing, and the absence of coloring and additional flavoring, can make a difference.
Sometimes people of retirement age and up have a hard time getting the nutrition they need. If food doesn’t taste good, they’re not going to eat it. People are more likely to get the vitamins, minerals, etc. their body requires if the food tastes good.
Poison Free/Pesticide Cutback
Conventional foods frequently have pesticides and harmful chemicals somewhere in their history. Organic products do not. Your immune system can actually be weakened by the chemicals and pesticides in foods not considered organic. Significant health problems can be caused as a result. This can be of particular interest if you have an immune system that is weakened.
For those concerned about the environment, a cutback on pesticides is a good idea all the way around. It’s healthier for humans and far better for the planet, animal population, general plant population, etc. Farm fields may experience less chemical treatment if more and more people turn to organics.
Immune System Strengthening
Compared to non-organic foods, organic food is filled with more minerals and vitamins because it’s grown in healthier soil. To get the nutrients you need, you can consume fewer calories. You may be able to extend your life by approximately 40% if you can make a 15% calorie reduction in your regular diet. Look for foods that, per gram, have lower calories. Organically grown vegetables are a good place to start.
Compared to conventionally grown produce, approximately 18 to 69% more antioxidants are found in organic produce. Cell damage in your body can be prevented, or at least delayed, by antioxidants. You may be able to reduce your risk of cognitive malfunction, vision problems, heart disease, and even cancer by having a diet that’s rich in antioxidants.
