Why Should You Test Your Fruits & Veggies for Nitrates?

Ever since you were a kid, you were told to eat your vegetables, but could those vegetables make you sick?

Many Americans don’t eat enough fresh products such as fruits, vegetables and greens, and as a result, we miss out on the vital nutrients that keep us healthy. If you are looking to turn your health around, a great place to start is by adding more fresh produce to your diet. However, some products contain high levels of nitrates, and this can actually lead to nitrate poisoning. This doesn’t mean that you should stop eating your vegetables, but it does mean that you need to be cautious about what you eat.

Luckily, at SOEKS you can find a nitrate tester that can help you determine if vegetables and other food are safe to eat or not!

Where do high levels of nitrates in produce come from?

In a world where demand is high, farmers have to do whatever it takes to grow enough vegetables, fruits, and other products to meet that demand. Sometimes, this leads to the use of nitrogen fertilizers, as it helps the product to grow faster, but unfortunately, this can lead to unsafe nitrate levels in the products. Additionally, when vegetables don’t have the sunlight exposure they so depend on, or the soil level of the nitrates dramatically rises up.

Nitrates in Vegetables can be harmful for people and specifically for children

Nitrate poisoning can be a serious problem, and research has proven that it can lead to cancer. Methemoglobinemia is a blood disorder that inhibits the distribution of oxygen throughout the body, and it is also caused by nitrate poisoning. Don’t take the risk! Ensure that you are providing yourself and your family with vegetables that are not only nutrient dense but also safe to eat.

I always suspected nitrates in the food (from all those pesticides) and cleaned my veggies thoroughly. But the only way to get rid of the wax completely is to PEEL THEM!

However, with this method you also get rid of the essential vitamins which the peel is abundant of. And some veggies you simply CAN’T peel!

I’m so happy to be able to find a device that checks my greens for the potential use of chemical fertilizers and environmental conditions in the area. Thank you SOEKS!

Just received my Ecovisor. It has tested many foods I have. Many tested what I expected, but some foods were CLEAN for nitrates. I have been hospitalized 3 times with NITRATE POISONING, so this little tester is literally a lifesaver! All my Doctors are excited to see it in action too. Thanks!
