Cleaning Yourself to Illness

Cleaning Yourself to Illness

April 8, 2020

Disinfectant products and other household cleaners have been flying off the shelves in the last few weeks, but how safe are these products? Long-term use of many common cleaning solutions and disinfectants have been linked to a number of health problems like asthma, wheezing, migraines, low sperm count, nervous system damage, and hormonal imbalances. People who these products regularly to clean their homes or offices, or janitors who use these chemicals almost daily, will typically experience more symptoms than someone who occasionally uses them. Fortunately, there are many other options for natural cleaners and disinfectants so you can avoid cleaning yourself to illness.

Products Mentioned in Today’s Show

Benfotiamine – This fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 has higher bioavailability compared to water-soluble forms. Benfotiamine inhibits several pathways involved in glucose-induced vascular changes and supports healthy neuron function.Clinical studies show that benfotiamine supports healthy neurological structures and glucose metabolism, limiting the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). Benfotiamine may also be a preferred choice after bariatric surgery as thiamine deficiency is frequently found in these people due to malabsorption.

Vital Detox – This advanced blend of green plant concentrates and enzymes helps protect the body against chemicals ingested in the daily diet and through everyday environmental exposure. This formulation is rich in chlorophylls from Chlorella and contains a unique broccoli extract with glucosinolates. The chlorophylls in Chlorella form tight molecular complexes with a wide variety of everyday toxic chemical compounds, reducing their absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. A high-strength enzyme blend also breaks down dietary antigens and may support assimilation of beneficial constituents of Chlorella. Glucosinolate compounds in broccoli are powerful inducers of natural phase 2 detoxification processes in the liver. Most substances detoxified by the liver are released into the bile for excretion through the intestinal tract. Chlorella helps trap these toxins to reduce reabsorption.

Turmeric Complex – The herbal extracts in Turmeric Complex contain multiple, beneficial compounds with documented ability to help modulate COX enzymes, scavenge free radicals, and promote physiological balance in susceptible tissues in a safe and harmonious fashion. Meriva®brand turmeric, a key ingredient in Turmeric Complex, combines turmeric extract with phosphatidylcholine forming a bioavailable turmeric phytosome complex that is significantly better absorbed than regular turmeric extracts.

CereVive provides the nutrients required to help optimize neurotransmitter production. CereVive is formulated to support a positive mental outlook and a relaxed, focused state. It includes amino acid precursors and bioactive nutrients that support healthy levels of neurotransmitters such as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.
