Your Toxic Load Affects Your Body and Quality of Life

You’re exposed to toxins daily. Every breath, every bite, every minute under the sun—they all introduce you to substances and chemicals (natural or synthetic) that can impact your health. Products in the United States contain more than 80,000 chemicals, and most of them are understudied or largely unregulated. Of the 3,000 chemicals used in excess of 1,000,000 pounds per year, only 7% have been tested for safety.

If toxins really are all around us, how bad can they be?

Well, the good news is the body has built-in protections and filters to help manage the toxins you encounter. But if your toxic load gets too heavy for your body to handle, things can go downhill fast. The detrimental effects of toxic load on your health can have serious long-term consequences. Toxins have been known to interfere with hormones, cause imbalances, damage organs, harm cell membranes and DNA, and even modify gene expression.

How is your toxic load affecting you?

You can’t control every toxin you come in contact with, but you can control what you bring into your home. You have options, and once you know about them, you’ll wonder why you settled for anything less than pure and natural. Look at the labels of the products you and your family use every day, and then decide if you’ll put them in your body or in your garbage.
