Here at Blossom Organics, we know that the best things for our bodies are all-natural, whether we're consuming food or heating things up in the bedroom with personal lubricants. Now, more evidence in support of organic products has emerged. A study conducted at Washington State University's Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources, published on December 9 in the journal PLOS ONE, found that organic milk contained higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids than its commercially produced counterpart.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for heart health and have been shown to provide a number of other health benefits. After analyzing 384 samples of both organic and conventional whole milk, the researchers, led by Dr. Charles Benbrook, reported that the organic samples contained 62 percent more omega-3s than "normal" milk.
"We were quite surprised to see the magnitude of difference in milk from organic farms," Benbrook told the Los Angeles Times. He attributed the difference in omega-3s primarily to the variation in organic versus conventional cows' diets: Organic cows must obtain a certain percentage of their nutritional intake from grasses, while a majority of conventional cows' diets is comprised of corn.
It's wonderful to see scientific evidence of the benefits of eating organic, non-GMO foods. But even if you're attuned to what you're putting into your body, are you sure you've taken the same precautions with what you're putting on your skin? Many lubricants and other beauty products contain harsh chemicals or parabens, so the next time you're in the market for sex aids, read the ingredients list carefully.
