Day 5
REPLACE – Parabens
1️⃣Parabens are potential endocrine disruptors due to their ability to mimic estrogen and have been found in breast tissue. They are also easily absorbed by the human body.(1,2)

2️⃣Parabens are systemically absorbed after topical application(3).

Phthalates
1️⃣Are a known endocrine disruptor. Even low doses of endocrine-disrupting chemicals can alter the body’s sensitive systems and lead to health problems like developmental, reproductive, brain and immune system issues.(4)

2️⃣Significant levels of phthalates were found in girls who experienced early puberty(5).

3️⃣Early puberty has been linked to increased breast cancer risk. Both BPA and phthalates have been linked to early puberty(6).

ADD IN – Collagen
1️⃣”When you have a leaky gut, toxins, food particles, and infections can pass through your intestinal wall and into your bloodstream, causing inflammation. Over time this chronic inflammation can lead to autoimmunity. Therefore, if you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease or thyroid condition (the vast majority of which is autoimmune) then you likely have a leaky gut and you would benefit from adding collagen into your diet.

That’s because your Intestinal wall is made up of microscopic folds or “villi” which are actually built of collagen. The amino acids in collagen quite literally, “seal the leak” or perforations by supporting cellular health and tissue growth.”(7)

2️⃣Its good for relieving joint pain and improving skin health. Provides your skin with structure, stretch and strengthens your bones. (8).
