Sunset Valley Organics provides Healthy Eating from Healthy Plants

At Sunset Valley Organics, our philosophy of good health is to eat healthy, nutrient dense food. To maintain a healthy diet, the plants and fruits that we eat must be healthy. In order for the plants and fruits to be healthy, the soil has to be healthy, full of available minerals and microbiology to make these essential minerals available for the plant to absorb.

We grow our organic blueberries differently to make them a Healthy Living choice. Take a look at our videos or read our story about how we grow things differently here.

Natural Sources of Minerals

Organic compost mineral richFor quite some time doctors and researchers have been linking the shortages of minerals in our food to a lot of our health problems from the common cold to more serious diseases. Indeed mineral supplements will help, but not like minerals that have been naturally absorbed by a plant and converted into an organic superfood. Humans and animals should be consuming their needed minerals from plants, not a manufactured pill of concentrated mineral.

Special composting results in the high vitamin and mineral content.

It's in the soil

Sunset Valley Organics recognizes the importance of soil health and its mass population of beneficial microbes. By following their unique, proprietary, organic, soil composting and amendment protocol, Sunset Valley Organics is doing its share to help improve the health and well being of our society by creating ultimately healthy blueberries.

Our Blueberries are Nutrient Rich

Blueberries are rich in vitamin C and are naturally low in fat, cholesterol and sodium. Blueberries contain iron, potassium and other important minerals, and are a good source of dietary fiber. The health benefits of blueberries are being actively researched, with amazing results. Blueberries are packed with nutrients and flavor, yet very low in calories. Recently, researchers at Tufts University analyzed 60 fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability. Blueberries came out on top, rating highest in their capacity to destroy free radicals.

Tested Results: Sunset Valley Organics are Super Blueberries

Testing of Sunset Valley Organic Blueberries vs other sources of blueberries in an independent lab speak for themselves. Sunset Valley Organic's Blueberries have higher than usual levels of Vitamin A, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. Sunset Valley Organic's blueberries are vitamin and mineral rich, also known as "nutrient dense" or superfoods.

Blueberries are Packed with Antioxidants

Antioxidants are another blueberry health benefit. The health benefits of blueberries are being researched extensively, and antioxidant properties associated with blueberries appear to be at least partially responsible for lowering the risk of cancer and heart disease. Antioxidants do this by protecting the body's blood vessel walls, making them more resistant to damage caused by oxidation.

Blueberries are packed with antioxidant phytonutrients called anthocyanidins
