The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is controlling the marketing of organic food. Infant formula is considered organic if 95% of its ingredients come from farms that use sustainable agriculture. That means that organic formula doesn't contain pesticides, fertilizers, bio-engineering or radiation. All animal ingredients in organic formula are produced without antibiotics or growth hormones. Regulations in the European Union are even heavier. Some organic formulas use even grass fed, bio-dynamic milk, and organic oils. The best organic formulas don't even use added sugars, such as corn syrup, glucose or rice syrup. This makes a big difference! Here are the 7 biggest benefits of feeding your baby with organic formula:
#1 Organic formula contains more vitamins and no pesticides
A study published by the "Alternative Medicine Review" notes that organic foods contains a higher level of some nutrients. Vitamins are one of them. Vitamins are very important in autumn and winter, because babies grow slower in those months and need a bigger vitamin supply.
#2 Organic formula is free of pesticides
Organic labeled formula also guarantees that your baby doesn't eat pesticides, which can have side-effects like nervous system injuries, lung damage, endocrine or immune system dysfunction.
#3 Your baby sleeps better, deeper and longer
Organic food is easier processed by your babies’ tummy and it will let your baby sleep better, deeper and longer, because it is easier for the digestive system. There are also special organic formulas to be takes before bed time. One example is Hipp Night.
#4 No Hydrolyzed Organic Formulas
The process of creating hydrolyzed milk is when milk protein is broken down. This helps some babies, but that process consist usually a step where chemicals are used. But organic formula doesn't contain any chemicals so hydrolyzation isn't applied for organic formula.
#5 Organic formula creates a better environment
By buying organic formula, you support mother Earth by promoting a natural way of feeding the animals, specifically the cows instead of genetic engineering. Organic cows aren’t fed by GMO so there are no possible genetically modified substances that can be found in organic milk.
#6 Your baby is more resistant to allergies
Feeding your baby with organic formula is almost a guarantee that your baby will have a better immune system and will be therefore more resistant to allergies. Non-organic formula often consists of ingredients which create specific allergies.
#7 Your baby will have a better mental development
Organic formula is composed of more polyunsaturated fatty acids and Omega-3 fatty acids, which results in a better brain function, which results usually in a better mental development and reaction times.
Organic formula is a safer and healthier way to feed your baby and you take much less risk with organic formula, especially if you use it from the very beginning. You and your baby can sleep longer and avoid any stomach or allergic issues. Choose wisely, because you pave your babies’ way with your responsibility.
