Medicine Cabinet Essentials

By November 12, 2020No Comments

?Rooms in the house?- Medicine closet. I guess that’s not really a room ?

When stocking your medicine cabinet, look for better choice ingredients that actually help and support our body in the healing process!

??Some better choice ingredients-

1️⃣HOCI (hydrochlorous acid)-
This is a naturally occurring molecule that is produced by our bodies to promote healing. It helps protect against invading bacteria, fungus, and viruses.

This is the main ingredient in Active Skin Repair and it works so well. This is my FAVORITE medicine cabinet item because it has saved me so much money because it acts as so many products (See slide)

2️⃣Turmeric-
Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric is known for being a pain reliever, reducing inflammation and being an antioxidant. (1)

3️⃣Whole food vitamins –
Vitamins and supplements made with whole food ingredients provide the entire vitamin complex and many times is more absorbable by the body.

??Medicine cabinet ingredients to try to avoid:

1️⃣Petroleum-
Petroleum is made from crude oil and can be contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHS).(2,3)

2️⃣Parabens-
Parabens can interfere with hormone function by binding to estrogen receptor cells.(4)

3️⃣Phthalates-
Phthalates are linked to several health issues due to being known endocrine disrupters. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals linked with developmental, reproductive, brain, immune, and other problems.(5)

Many of these are linked in my bio with discounts and some in my IG story.
