f you want optimal health and performance, or you are suffering from a chronic infection or disease, you’ll want to make the necessary changes to your personal care products to decrease your exposure to often used gimmicks. Most personal care products burden your detoxifying organs with junk that gunks up your skin, liver, and kidneys. This results in acne and other skin lesions, joint pain, and gut irritation, then the green apple quick step, then autoimmune this and autoimmune that.
In our first edition of “Whatchu Got in Your Toiletry Bag,” we’ll be brushing up on your options for some bomb diggity toothpaste.
Putting Crest toothpaste in your LV Monogram is like putting 87 octane gas in your Ferrari.
Epstein Barr, Lyme, Rheumatoid, Psoriasis, hypothyroid, Hashimoto’s, Multiple Sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal issues, autoimmune this, autoimmune that or desire to kick ass in life?You have to make high-quality personal products a priority.

Next time you’re strolling through Fry’s…Next time you’re at the grocery store pick up any box of toothpaste and count the number of ingredients. Most of the ingredients aren’t for the purpose of your teeth or health. It’s to make the product look more appealing and cut cost.

Don’t be fooled! There’s crap in many of the “healthy” toothpaste too like our boy Tom from Maine that sold out to Colgate-Palmolive.

7 Common Toxins in Toothpaste:1. Flouride. Probably the biggest surprise here from all the brainwashing. Do you remember swishing cups of fluoride in school? Fluoridation of water in Europe is rare but here in the US the majority of our water has added fluoride. A study by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevent stated that 40% of adolescents had dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis = damaged teeth 
Fluoride can also cause the thyroid to get jacked up. This is because the chemical structure of fluoride (fluorine) and iodine, essential for thyroid hormones, are similar (both are in the same column of the periodic table and therefore have the same # of electrons in the outer shell–remember that crazy shit from high school chemistry??)

2. Sodium lauryl sulfate. It is used as a foaming agent but it’s an irritant and toxin to organs including the lining of your mouth. Companies will try to trick you by using other names. Here’s the deal, if you can’t pronounce it don’t put it in your mouth.
3. Triclosan. It’s used as the antibacterial agent, but several studies have linked it to jacking up hormone mojo. The FDA banned the use of triclosan in soaps and body wash but it’s allowed in toothpaste.
4. Titanium Dioxide. It’s a marketing gig to make toothpaste white. Studies have not confirmed if it’s absorbed in the mouth. You’ll find this stuff in the ingredients of nut milk too. Crazy!!!
5. Artificial coloring/dye. Not cool.
6. Artificial sweeteners. Like aspartame, they are used as a flavoring agent. Suck it up! Embrace the taste of dirt flavored toothpaste. Aspartame is possibly carcinogenic.
7. Diethanolamine. It’s used as a foaming agent. This is another hormone mojo jacker upper. the Environmental Workings Group rates DEA a top-level toxin on its hazard scale.
Why is Your Toothpaste Important if You Don’t Swallow itYou have tiny pores residing throughout your mouth are highly absorbent. These tiny pores lead to small blood vessels that end up in your body’s circulation and eventually into your cells.

Stores such as Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Natural Grocer’s carry healthier options for toothpaste. But please understand these stores also carry toothpaste with fluoride and other crap like the items listed above. Do your due diligence and read the product’s ingredients before you put that stuff in your mouth.

These guys did a clever job of marketing, but I’d pass on this if I were you.

I’ll DIY and make some without it or get some Earthpaste (below).
