We mean business when it comes to organic.
All juices contain organic ingredients and are certified by the organic governing body. Considering we press over 6lbs of produce into one of our juices, you can understand why it’s so important to choose organic and why we don’t want to increase your toxic load with pesticide soup.
Need a reason to go organic?
A ground breaking new study shows that the antioxidant levels in organic fruit and vegetables compared to non-organic are so high that it can be equivalent to eating an additional 1-2 portions of fruit and veg per day.
Survival of the fittest
Organic crops are heavily restricted from using pesticides, meaning that organic fruits and veggies had to work extra hard for their place in the world. This extra ‘effort’ leads to the building of an incredibly strong plant immune system (otherwise known as phytonutrients), which in turn leads to a stronger immune system for those who eat the organic superheroes.
Organic Health Facts
Key findings from the study on why you should go organic, from a nutrient content point of view:
1. Organic crops are up to 60% higher in a number of key antioxidants than non-organic crops.
2. Fewer pesticides: The frequency of occurrence of detectable pesticide residues is four times higher in non-organic crops (ew!)
3. Less cadmium: (known to irritate the stomach, lungs and kidneys) The analysis detected 48% lower concentrations of the toxic heavy metal cadmium in organic crops
4. Less nitrogen: (linked in some studies to an increased risk of certain cancers) Nitrogen concentrations were found to be significantly lower in organic crops.
As well as being better for us, organic farming is also better for the environment because organic farmers work in harmony with nature. Not to mention that organic crops taste heaps better too- the nourished, well balanced soil produces healthy, strong plants.
We believe we’re all connected.
We’re connected to each other and we’re connected to you. We treat everyone as family.
Lastly, we are determined!
We’ve done the research and know that local, Organic food is the way! Join us in our march towards Sustainability and vibrant life.
