Why does Mighty-O use Organic ingredients?
It makes sense; organic food is good food. Good to eat, good for the environment, good for the farmers and farm workers who produce it the way nature intended. Below are some of our top reasons:
1. NATURES INTENTION
Organic food has been around since the beginning of earth’s history which is considered by many experts to be over 4,500,000,000 years. The use of extra chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, and hydrogenated oils has only come into effect in the last 100 years or so and we still do not have a strong understanding of their impact on humanity.
Buying organic protects our soil, plants, animals and insects and it is healthier for you. On average, organic food contains higher levels of vitamin C and essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and chromium as well as cancer-fighting antioxidants. Organic food doesn’t contain mystery food additives, colors, flavors or dyes that can cause health problems. Read more at www.organicconsumers.org
Organic farming starts with the nutrients of the soil, which leads to the nourishment of the plant and ultimately our palates. Organic food taste fresher. Organic food tastes better.
Agricultural pesticides are responsible for 70% of the pollution to our country’s rivers and streams caused by chemicals, erosion, and animal waste runoff. Organic farming may be one of the last ways to keep both ecosystems and rural communities healthy and alive. Organic farming is better for wildlife, causes lower pollution from sprays, produces less carbon dioxide (the main global warming gas), and less dangerous wastes. Read more at www.epa.gov
5. FUTURE GENERATIONS
