All Natural Ingredients
Going all natural can be the right thing to do. We hear of so many chemicals being used in food that it is hard to know what is healthy anymore. Eating foods that include all natural ingredients means it does not contain artificial ingredients or preservatives. Natural ingredients include plants, animals, mineral or microbial ingredients present in or produced by nature that are produced using minimal physical processing.
Those who only eat all natural ingredients usually adapt an organic diet. The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. Organic livestock raised for meat, eggs, and dairy products must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal by-products.
How your food is grown or raised can have a major impact on your mental and emotional health as well as the environment. Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts and people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods.
To familiarize yourself with all natural foods, begin by reading food labels and ingredient lists. Turn over the package and read its nutrition facts. Buy foods with ingredients you recognize and steer clear of huge labels with long lists of ingredients you don’t recognize. This typically means it is highly processed, the manufacturers just got around using added colors, artificial flavors and synthetic substances.
Our body’s natural reaction to natural ingredients are positive results. When eating all natural foods, you can expect:
- A healthier weight
- More energy levels

- Fewer free radicals in the system, creating less risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc.

Healthy ingredients, like fresh fruits and veggies, herbs and spices, and even some meats can enhance one’s health, strength, endurance, immunity and youthfulness.
