They say you are what you eat.

So hopefully you are cutting out the “white stuff”, like gluten, flour and sugar; as well as eating organic and free-range products to help reduce the ill effects from toxins and hormones found in your foods. Even better, would be to consider taking a probiotic and nutritional supplementation: what goes in your body truly is key to your health and your body’s ability to grow younger.

But what about things that go into your body unintentionally?

Every day you inhale, ingest and absorb toxins. The world – especially your make-up counter and bathroom cabinets – is a toxic place.

The average American is exposed to 126 unique chemicals in their personal care products alone, every day. Now consider that your skin is your body’s largest organ, and is basically an absorbent and permeable sponge for so many synthetic chemicals that we come in contact with daily.  And studies have shown these many of these chemicals do not break down, but simply accumulate in your body.
