The average woman wears 515 chemicals on an average day. That’s chemicals in her shampoo and conditioner, her body wash, deodorant, moisturiser, make-up and perfume to name a few. These chemicals enter your blood stream through your skin and have to be processed and broken down by your liver. They sit there causing traffic jams in your liver making things slower and not allowing your liver to process the nutrients in your food or breaking down natural waste products from your cells ready to be eliminated by your body. The chemicals in your everyday cleaning products and around your home can also mimic your hormones and disrupt how they work in your body.
Hormones are your body’s messengers and tell your body EVERYTHING from waking up in the morning to telling you when you’re hungry, full, thirsty and ready for bed. We’ve heard of BPA and how it is an imposter oestrogen that adversely affect the reproductive system with mounting evidence to suggest they could be responsible for early puberty and increased rates of testicular and breast cancer. 515 other chemicals are floating around in your body thanks to supermarket products.
