Organic farming is the only way to preserve the integrity of our soil. Conventional farming destroys the natural structure of the soil, reduces soil mineralization and earthworm activity, and decreases water-stable aggregation.
How we farm effects the quality of the food we eat. Research shows significant nutritional differences between organic and non-organic farming. Organic varieties provide significantly greater levels of vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus than non-organic varieties of the same foods. While being higher in these nutrients, they are also significantly lower in nitrates and pesticide residues.
At Juice4Thought we use 100% organic ingredients as we strongly believe the organic process is crucial for the health of our bodies, and for the health of our planet. Pesticide and chemical residues from fertilisers are rife in our food chain and can wreak havoc in our bodies. When you juice you ingest much more fruit or vegetables than you would normally eat in one sitting; this is why juices are so nutrient rich. It also means that if the juice is not organic then the dose of toxins is even higher.
