Chalk up another win for organic whole foods. New research has found that organic food contains more antioxidants than conventionally-grown food and may be one of the most potent ways to fight aging, reduce oxidative stress, and support energy.

Organic Food Contains More Antioxidants

A comprehensive review that’s set to be published in the British Journal of Nutrition has found that, along with the above reasons to go organic,organic foods contain higher amounts of antioxidants (17 percent more) than non-organic. Antioxidants can help reduce (or at least slow down) damage to your cells — or what we call aging. Countless studies have found that antioxidants can reduce your risk of any number of chronic diseases. [1]

Other Benefits of Organic Food

The benefits of organic food are no secret and include:

  • No GMOs
  • Better freshness
  • No growth hormones
  • No antibiotics
  • Animals aren’t fed animal by-products

The review also found that organic food contains less of the toxic metal cadmium as well as less pesticides. Just a few of the issues that have been linked to pesticides include headaches, nausea, reproductive issues, cancer, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, impaired brain development, and behavioral disorders. The less you’re exposed to this trash, the better. [2]
