Why Your Carrots Really Should Be Organic Carrots

Organic carrotsCarrots are a very healthy food but they have a big problem if they are conventionally grown carrots and not organic. This page explains why organic carrots are the best kind of carrots if you value your health.

The very same reason that makes carrots so nutritious – their ability to absorb up so many nutrients from the soil – is also the reason why they are so good at absorbing up pesticides and even heavy metals from the ground they’re in.

A farmer who was a friend of the family once told me that when they are having trouble growing vegetables in a field, they put carrots in for a season and they’ll absorb up all the ‘crap’ from the ground so other vegetables can grow again.

He said these carrots went for stock feed, but I doubt that’s always the case. Ever since then I’ve always bought organic carrots.

I also choose organic supplements wherever possible too. My latest favorite is this Organifi Gold powder, with 9 superfoods for stress relief, inflammation reduction and better sleep.

Even worse, millions of pumpkins are hollowed out for carving at Halloween, with the pumpkin meat and seeds, probably about the healthiest thing in the kitchen at the time, never used.

Pumpkins deserve better. In fact, with the incredible array of health nutrients in pumpkins, they should really be considered a superfood. And one we’d do well to eat a lot more often.
