Once you’ve gotten yourself up and running and you’re feeling the juice, you want to make sure you don’t unknowingly sabotage all of your hard earned gains. One MAJOR thing that most guys over look are the little things all around them that seem innocent enough.
That being said…
I’ll tell you something else right now while you’re here that’s going to go a long way for you…..Go into your bathroom and under your kitchen sink, and THROW AWAY all of your shampoos, soaps, deodorants, aftershaves and skin lotions along with any other cleaning supplies you may have. This may sound awfully dramatic….but it’s not.
ALL of these things contain toxic chemical estrogens known as xenoestrogens that make fast work of your hormone profile, and not in a good way. Xenoestrogens, like the name implies, are chemicals that mimick estrogen in humans. Knowing what you know now about estrogen, does this sound like a wise thing to slather all over your body??
Go pick up any personal care product and read the label. You’re going to see:
Phthalates: are a group of chemicals used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic, vinyl and chemical compositions. Can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system — particularly the developing testes — according to animal studies.
Fragrances: Toxic chemicals that Gives your product the scent it has and has the propensity to build in human tissues, is detected in 97% of Americans and is linked to low sperm count in men.
Parabens: Are synthetic preservatives used in foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products such as deodorants, moisturizers and shampoos. Common parabens include methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben. Parabens allow skin care products to survive for months or even years in your medicine cabinet.
However, they also enter your body through your skin when you use these products. An experiment with rats found their sperm production significantly decreased in relation to the amount of parabens they had received. The rats who received the highest dose of parabens, which was consistent with the daily acceptable intake of parabens in Europe and Japan, showed a significant decrease in sperm concentration.
Fellas….if there is one thing you take away from this site, for whatever the reason, make this be one of them. These things have NO PLACE in the human body, especially for MALES. They are straight up chemicals….toxic chemicals, that happen to have certain properties to them that makes them useful in industry…..
Some smell good…
Some have the ability to lather up a mixture….
Others give the product a certain consitency, but…
NONE OF THEM are good for you.
Not only are they detrimental to hormone function, but many of the ingredients in these products have been show to be carcinogenic…..cancer causing.
They build up in tissues and are stored away. The effects of them build over a lifetime of using them. Is it any wonder why cancer rates are soaring?
Does it make any sense at all to put a chemical mixture in your arm pit that is going to soak into your lymph system and poison your body because it smells good?
It’s craziness, but we’ve been told these things are normal and most people don’t think about it twice.
The xenoestrogens I listed are just some of the main offenders….there are more. I wouldn’t have enough room here to list them all. The point I’m making here is to be cautious, and AWARE of what you put on your body, face, hair, etc. Read, and research.
A good rule of thumb is if it’s not something you would put in your mouth and eat, it’s not something that you should be smearing all over your body.
What ever you put on your skin, ends up in your bloodstream!! ALL of these chemicals NEED to be removed from your life IMMEDIATELY.
The good news here is there are natural alternatives to all these personal care products that work good if not better then the chemical ones.
ALWAYS choose these natural products….always.
I use and recommend this line of products from the Health Ranger. They contain absolutely none of the toxic chemicals mentioned here nor do they contain any harsh alcohols or solvents. These are about as close to nature as you can get.
If you weren’t thoroughly scared enough after learning about these toxins in your everyday life, do yourself a favor and google a video called “The Disappearing Male” to learn about what these chemicals are doing to our society.
Okay….now that you’re aware of these chemical estrogens and will be avoiding them, your testosterone levels are going to climb even HIGHER!
You may be feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of this new information. Let’s take some time to talk about Calming the mind
