(NaturalHealth365) Our foods have been under attack by the biotech industry and its chemical products for decades. And, the negative effects are clear for us to see.

Simply put, many of our food crops have dramatically lost their nutritional value … some agricultural experts would say by as much as 70 percent! This, alone, might be the single most important reasons why supplements have been in such demand.

Is there a problem with organic foods?

The blunt truth is ‘yes!’ Even organic foods have lost their nutrient content – which is why so many people tend to struggle with nutritional deficiencies. (even when doing their best to eat well)

Bottom line: we must find ways to get MORE nutrition from our foods to protect our health or pay the unwanted consequences of sickness and premature death.

Today, on the NaturalHealth365 Podcast, I’ll introduce you to someone that has a solution for this problem. You’ll learn about a system of growing plants that can produce nutrient-rich foods to meet our daily needs.

About Dr. Jana Bogs

Dr. Jana Bogs is a research scientist and consultant whose motto is “Creating health from the soil up!” Due to health problems in herself and her family when she was growing up, Dr. Bogs became interested in nutrition and decided to get a university degree in that area while also studying many other aspects of holistic health and nutrition – at the same time.

With a degree under her belt, Dr. Bogs started her career in the field of nutrition working with various holistic-minded doctors. However, after a while, she came to realize that our foods are not the quality they could be or should be – especially when considering nutrient density.

This realization motivated Dr. Bogs to create the “Beyond Organic Growing System” (BOGS) – which is designed to bring nutritious food to the world by helping farmers, gardeners and food companies understand how to produce supreme quality food.

Proof: Nutrition Farming Project Improves Soil

Nutrition Farming for Hawaii Research and Demonstration Garden–First Season

Nutrition Farming for Hawaii is a grant-funded project located at HIP Agriculture in Kapa`au, Hawaii and fiscally sponsored by the North Kohala Community Resource Center (NKCRC).  The aim is to increase food nutritional content.  This starts with improving the soil.

This spring, our ¼-acre research and demonstration garden was fertilized according to a Nutrition Grown™ soil analysis. (Click here for more about analyses.)  The land is old sugarcane land, and is unbalanced. As you can see in the chart below, there were many values that needed improvement.

The follow-up analysis, 6 months after initial fertilizing, showed significant improvements of nearly every parameter.  Correcting soil imbalances takes time, usually years.  Only small amounts of certain nutrients can be applied at one time, otherwise the beneficial microbial life in the soil is overwhelmed.  (Please note that soils vary greatly from place to place, often even on the same property, so these values will not be the same as those of other nearby properties.)

If you have been following our blogs, you will have seen that our produce was laboratory analyzed and compared to USDA values for nutritional content.  Our produce has well outpaced typical produce in nutritional content on nearly every parameter measured, even in our first year.
