We know that gardening is good for us. There’s a certain kind of magic associated with, quite literally, reaping what you sow and knowing that your direct actions help plants come to life.
Other surprising health benefits associated with gardening include:
- Boosts Vitamin D
- Improves self esteem
- Cardiovascular health
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Provides as a bonding family activity
- Helps you to eat cleaner and fresher foods
When it comes to taking care of your garden, did you know that it’s actually a lot like looking after your body? While there are certainly short cuts, cutting corners isn’t a sustainable solution when it comes to long term care – for both your body and your garden.
Optimising your garden to lift it to its best possible condition, is similar to the way that we are (ideally) supposed to care for our bodies.
Hydration – In order to circulate oxygen and to keep your energy levels up, the human body requires 3-4L of fluids per day. Without it, we can quickly face dehydration. While the level of water required varies from plant to plant, the functions are not that different when compared to hydration in humans.
Vitamins – People need vitamins, and so do plants. These minerals are essential nutrients and perform hundreds of roles within the body, helping bone strength, heal wounds and solidify the immune system – the same goes for plants. Organic garden probiotics are essentially a multivitamin for plants.
Food – What we choose to consume acts as fuel for our bodies. If our food isn’t providing the right nutrients and minerals, our body can’t perform at its best. Without the supply of a high-quality plant food, plants are also more likely to turn sluggish. Chemical free plant food options like Bio Booster ensures that your garden has access to the right stuff for optimal growth.
Hygiene And Sickness – Especially in the winter time, if we don’t wash our hands and take care of ourselves properly, we open our immune systems up to all kinds of nasty invaders and viruses. Plants operate in a similar fashion, especially with things like pests, weeds and diseases. BioWeed is a chemical free solution to arm plants against these invaders in a safe manner.
Sunlight – Ah, Vitamin D. This essential mineral helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. Too much or too little direct sunlight can hinder plants ability to grow leaves, flowers and fruits, so make sure that they’re getting the right dosage.
There’s a high chance that if you’re consciously looking after your body, then you’re going to realise that the same love, attention and care can also significantly benefit your garden. A natural, chemical free existence has shown positive health benefits in humans – and can do the exact same for your leafy friends found in the garden.
