The media usually always talks about the health benefits of an organic diet when compared to food that is loaded with chemicals. But some studies say that there are hardly any differences between nutritional and mineral content in either diet.
Just by looking at the main differences between these two kinds of food, common sense will tell you everything you need about there being more health benefits of an organic diet than of its slightly inferior counterpart.
First of all, the enhancing of chemicals that is now being linked to the regular methods of bringing crops out today appears to show that produce gets enhanced with extra water to speed up the growth of plants, giving them a slightly artificial look. Just by taking a look at the various vegetables in the supermarket, you should start to wonder whether vegetables can actually look so perfect. Conversely, organic vegetables have more dry matter in them, which means that it has a lot more food substance while containing less water. Because of this, you will get much more from your everyday quota of nutrients and vitamins.
One of the other health benefits of an organic diet filled with vegetables would be the overall higher amount that it has of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients refer to antioxidants that can enhance your life and can be found inside the plant, defending the body against dangerous pesticides and chemicals while it grows. There is no wonder as to why plants that grow without chemicals and pesticides will have many more natural defenses ready, which will go into the human body when consumes. Some common phytonutrients would include lycopene in tomatoes, flavenols in apples and polyphenols in potatoes.
