Eliminate Toxic Compounds for Thyroid Health

Dubbed the master gland of metabolism, thyroid plays a pivotal role in health and performance. In fact, I think this is reason enough to pamper your thyroid health. But, modern life, with its high toxicity levels, makes it even more of a necessity.

At any rate, eliminating phthalates and BPA from your life is an effective and easy way to progress towards better health.

The two very toxic compounds mentioned beforehand create havoc on your thyroid function.

Now where do you get phthalates and BPA from?

The problem is that they ubiquitous in our environment. They come from your detergents. They hide in the coating of pharmaceuticals and cheap supplement tablets. Wrappers and can linings are other sources. Hence the necessity of avoiding packaged foods.

Here is a great resource if you want to reduce your exposure. Please check the Environmental Working Group’s Cheatsheet: Phthalates
