Optimal health is as complex as the human body itself. Unfortunately, in the past, the modern food industry has produced borderline toxic food for us to consume.
Because this toxicity is not as apparent as say, food poisoning, we go on eating pro-inflammatory fats and sugar-dense meals full of additives and preservatives, never the wiser. As more people are subjected to diabetes and chronic inflammatory conditions, especially early in life when the body should be full of vigor, both families and scientists have begun to look closely at the role that food consumption plays in health.
As you probably know, there is a problem when we are constantly exposed to toxins in our foods, in our air, and in our water. However, we need also look at what we think is healthy just because we buy it at a health food store.
Many foods and supplements in natural markets are still loaded with fillers and are high in sugar. Many of the large organic farms that deliver produce and meats are not providing the quality you think you may be paying for. In last week’s newsletter, we discussed the difference between grass-fed beef that is grain-finished and grass-fed beef that is green-finished. This is one of the many examples of the ways these organic farms have to cut corners in order to supply the large health food stores.
At the age of 20 years old, Jordan Rubin was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and showed symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Candida overgrowth, as well as several viral infections.
Why? Beyond Organic dairy has what Rubin calls a “four-fold difference.”
Health is not just about calorie counting, reducing sugar in the diet, or even taking a probiotic supplement. If you have at all struggled with your own health, you know that health is about mind, body, and spirit.
Rather than sell to large retailers, Beyond Organic sells to individuals. This puts the power of the food industry back into the hands of the consumer.
Sadly, modern foods available to us today are often borderline toxic and can affect our health and quality of life for the worse. On top of that, not every healthy, organic food sold at a health food store is as organic as it claims to be. Many organic farms cut corners in order to supply their products to large health food chains.
This is precisely why Jordan Rubin created Beyond Organic to focus on quality foods beyond the label of "organic.” Beyond Organic foods commit to making a four-fold difference:
Optimal health is not just about dieting to stay at a healthy weight. It is essential to nourish your mind, body, and spirit with safe foods that are truly Beyond Organic…
