Soil Exhaustion

 In Blog

soil-exhaustionDid you know that the soil our food grows in is often suffering from “exhaustion?”

What does this mean for you?

Quite simply: the farmers use the soil over and over again with little to no rest which leaves the soil depleted of nutrients and minerals. And because the soil is depleted, the vegetables and grains that grow in the soil are depleted as well, because there is nothing for them to absorb while growing.

Basically, the carrots that you are eating today are not as nutrient-rich or dense as the carrots that your Grandma used to enjoy.

“Agriculture experts have warned growers that ceaseless cultivation of food crops will leave their soil deficient in micro-nutrients, and have advised them to get farmland soil analyzed every three-years in order to combat any deficiencies. Ceaseless cultivation renders soil deficient in important micro-nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorous, potash, sulphur, zinc, iron, bronze and boron, says a release issued by the media liaison unit of the Punjab agriculture department here on Tuesday. ‘The presence of micro-nutrients in the soil is also affected by water scarcity and unsuitable methods of fertilizer application at unsuitable times,’ the release said. ‘Agricultural production can be enhanced two to three times by suitable application of fertilizers,’ they added.”

According to the experts many of the soil deficiencies can be remedied with fertilizer. But! There are other experts who argue that we are eating too many foods with synthetic fertilizers and that our exposure to nitrate from nitrogen fertilizers is increasing our risk for a vast array of medical ailments including cancer, reproductive problems, and thyroid conditions.

In 1999 MDH conducted a screening evaluation of heavy metals in fertilizers at the request of the MDA. The results showed elevated levels of arsenic, lead, and cadmium in some fertilizer products—primarily micronutrient fertilizers (products that contain iron, zinc, and other nutrients that are added to soil to promote plant growth).

As you can see replenishing our exhausted soil is associated with various risks and that natural sources of vitamins and minerals are definitely better approaches.

Dead Sea Moringa is a unique source for vitamins and minerals for a few reasons:

1. Dead Sea Moringa is grown in the mineral-rich soil of the Dead Sea region and is absorbing natural vitamins and minerals as it grows.

2. Dead Sea Moringa itself is a natural source of vitamins, minerals, and 90 nutrients, which means it can be fully absorbed into your body unlike synthetic sources.

3. Dead Sea Moringa has been shown to combat the problems associated with synthetic fertilizers (i.e. chemo support, reproductive health, thyroid health, and heavy metal remover).

Dead Sea Moringa is the natural choice for better health and an improved lifestyle!
