We all have had that moment in the grocery store where we are looking at endless shelving filled with products that all seem the same. It can be so overwhelming! Not only does the amount of options make it difficult to choose, but then you have to wonder about what is actually in these products. Are they safe? Are they clean? Do they have chemicals in them?

You’ll never have to worry about what you are putting into your body when buying a 1000 Springs Mill product. Our mission is Healthy People. Healthy Future.™ To understand why we are so passionate about organic and NON-GMO food we need to talk about the benefits of eating organic.

Reduced Exposure to Pesticides
Organic food is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, which have been linked to a range of health issues such as cancer, neurodevelopmental problems, and hormonal imbalances. In addition to potential human health issues pesticides can also harm the environment. They can contaminate soil, and water, harm beneficial insects and animals, disrupt ecosystems, and contribute to the loss of biodiversity. Pesticide residues can remain on food after it has been harvested and processed, which can lead to exposure to pesticides through diet. Even low levels of exposure to pesticides through food can have a cumulative effect over time.

Higher Antioxidant Levels
Organic products have higher levels of antioxidants than conventionally grown products. Antioxidants are compounds that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals and can reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Free radical damage is thought to contribute to aging, and antioxidants may help slow the aging process by reducing this damage and promoting healthy cell function. Antioxidants can also help support the immune system, protect against cognitive decline, and support eye health.

Reduced Exposure to GMOs
Organic food is produced without the use of genetically modified organisms or GMOs. GMOs are organisms that have been genetically altered in a way that does not occur naturally through breeding or natural recombination. There are potential health risks associated with consuming GMOs. One concern is the risk of allergic reactions. Some people may be allergic to the proteins in genetically modified foods, which can cause allergic reactions such as hives, difficulty breathing, and anaphylaxis. Another concern is the potential for the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can cause infections that are difficult to treat. This can occur because some GMOs are engineered to be resistant to antibiotics. Genetic modification can also alter the chemical composition of foods, potentially leading to the accumulation of toxins or harmful substances in food that can be harmful to human health. Additionally, the long-term health effects of consuming GMOs are not well understood, and there is concern that GMOs may have unknown health risks that may not be apparent for many years.
