Beware of those Antibactrial soap

Image
Antibacterial soaps kill bacteria and microbes – but so do plain soap and water. An FDA advisory committee found that using antibacterial soaps provides no benefits over plain soap and water. The FDA banned triclosan, triclocarban and 17 other antibacterial ingredients in hand soaps, effective September 2017.

Many ingredients added to soap, plastics and textiles to make them “antibacterial” pose safety concerns and provide minimal, if any, benefits. After the ban, triclosan can still be added to many antibacterial consumer products.

Triclosan is linked to liver and inhalation toxicity. Even low levels of triclosan may disrupt thyroid function. Triclosan and other antibacterial ingredients may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Antibacterial chemicals such as triclosan affect the natural environment. Wastewater treatment does not remove all triclosan, sending it into lakes, rivers and water sources, whcre it is very toxic to aquatic life.

Yoga for your digestive Health

Image
A healthy digestive system in Ayurveda is referred to as the mainstream of our well-being. The root cause of most of the diseases is inefficient digestion. The metabolic energy of digestion called agni helps in eliminating the body wastes and toxins. It breaks down the dense physical matter into subtle energy the body needs, generates internal warmth and produces a clear mind

Let’s think of our digestive system as a juicer, body toxins as fruit waste, agni as juicer blades and energy as juice. If the juicer blades are weak, less juice is generated and there is more of fruit waste left. Similarly when this agni (juicer blade) is weak, there is not enough digestive power to metabolise food into energy(juice).The result? More toxins(fruit waste) are accumulated in the cells. Thus a stronger agni (better juicer blades) is required for a good digestive system. An easy way to support digestive agni is through Yoga.

DO YOU KNOW? Your stomach manufactures a new lining every three days to avoid digesting itself.

DO YOU KNOW? Your stomach manufactures a new lining every three days to avoid digesting itself.

As a part of the digestive process, your stomach secretes hydrochloric acid (HA). HA is a powerful corrosive compound also used to treat various metals. The HA your stomach secretes is also powerful, but mucous lining the stomach wall keeps it within the digestive system. As a result it breaks down the food you consume, but not your own stomach.

Garlic for your guts

Image
Raw garlic is loaded with sulfur, an essential mineral that helps the body to get rid of toxins. It stimulates your liver to produce detoxification enzymes to filter toxins out of your blood stream. And on top of that, garlic keeps your intestine free of bad bacteria, parasites, and viruses.

There are over 400 species of bacteria in our gut!

Image
DO YOU KNOW? Trillions of bacteria are hostile and can cause disease, while many others are friendly and have established a symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationship with us over the millennia. These friendly bacteria have also been referred to as "probiotics" and are being used increasingly by mainstream clinicians for both preventive and therapeutic purposes. The literal translation of the word probiotic is "for life." A growing number of studies suggest that part of what determines how the human body functions may be not only our own genes, but also the genes of the trillions of microorganisms that reside on and in our bodies.
