Every day we are surrounded by toxic chemicals that we inevitably consume either by breathing, ingesting or through skin contact.
Daily exposure to heavy metals and pollution in the air, soil and water, and repeated use of synthetic-laced beauty and cleaning products add up. This toxic body burden can potentially have a negative impact on our health.
Toxic build-up in the body can lead to premature ageing; wrinkles, age spots and even hair loss. Heavy metals, such as arsenic, lead, cadmium, and beryllium, can also interrupt the absorption of essential trace minerals that our bodies need.
Our organs and physiological systems need trace minerals (calcium, iron, zinc, selenium, copper, and magnesium) to support our blood, hormone, brain and enzyme functions. Stable, well-functioning systems will help to preserve your health and a more youthful appearance.
Find out what’s in your water supply. Most water companies add chlorine to purify the water, otherwise it would be unsanitary to drink. Some also add fluoride (they say this is to prevent tooth decay, however at Awake Organics we believe this isn’t necessary and could be harmful to your health).
If you live in the UK, you can download a free water report for your postcode area on your water provider’s website.
The full report will list everything that’s in your water, including heavy metals, pesticides, environmental pollutants, chlorine, fluoride count and trace minerals.
