Why eat superfoods?
Why not? You can only eat a certain number of calories every day, and why wouldn’t you want them to be the most nutrition packed possible for optimal health? With their naturally-occurring phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, EFA’s & trace elements, the rewards of super food energy in combination with a balanced diet, fitness program, and positive attitude will last a lifetime.
Whether powering through a long day at work, hitting the gym or trails, or just needing an extra competitive edge in life, everyone can benefit from the energy of organic functional foods. These ultra nourishing edibles - acai, cacao, maca, sea vegetables, chia, goji & maqui berries, coconut-derived foods and supersalts etc make being at your best easier than ever.
We believe that the only way forward for humanity is to embrace dailiy healthy eating, to foster a positive, productive outlook, and a creative, energetic desire to solve the challenges facing us on this planet Earth today.
And if you believe as we do, that superfoods and conscious food choices will become the norm, then you'll realise too that there is room for all of us, which is why we service, assist and support other companies, individuals, & those connected to it.....because the future is right NOW.
Why certified organic?
Unpleasant, yes, but true. Fish, fowl, fauna and food diversity are failing. Chemical runoff and residues are the main cause of decreasing plant and animal life world-wide. Every year in Australia alone, over 30,000 TONNES of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides etc are splashed across our continent.
Organic farming practices restore topsoil quality, resist drought, and foster wildlife habitat and biodiversity. It is said that current agricultural practices are responsible for about 30 percent of global warming – organic farming reduces landfill (nutrient recycling thru composting), captures carbon dioxide (in the form of soil humus), and reduces greenhouse gas by eliminating synthetic nitrogen fertilisers (prohibited in Organic farming) which account for two thirds of cropping emissions.
Scientific studies comparing conventional food with organic foods have concluded that organics are more nutritious with higher Vitamin C levels, more minerals and phytonutrients (like antioxidants), and can additionally prevent you from consuming as much as 2 kilos of nasty food additives (not allowed in Organics) per annum.
And what about allergies?? With ‘trial’ farms already producing GMO produce, food irradiation being approved in some states, and weak legislation in Australia that allows Genetically Modified Foods to be unlabelled in our food chain, you & your child could be eating unknown genes (fish? egg? spider??) spliced into their apple, for example. Organic farmers support Mother Nature by taking a firm stance, saying “NO to GMO”.
Now round all that out with more humane treatment of farm animals, a much better taste, & a dose of common bloody sense - can any sensible earth resident not love Organics?? Hip hip hooray !!!!!!!
