Top 10 Common Household Toxins


Greetings. It’s Matt with 10 easy-to-implement recommendations to help protect you and your family against 10 nasty dangers you’re probably not aware of.

Did you know that a recent biomonitoring survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found traces of 212 environmental chemicals in the average American, including toxic metals like arsenic and cadmium, pesticides, flame retardants and even perchlorate—an ingredient in rocket fuel! With so many scary-sounding, potentially toxic compounds turning up in our household products, it's hard to know which agents are really worth worrying about. Here is a guide to some of the most commonly found toxins, the latest information from animal- and early-stage human studies and what all that means for your family and your home.

Bisphenol A (BPA)

BPA is a chemical used in plastic production, and found in things like water bottles, baby bottles, plastic wraps and food packaging.

Health Hazards: The U.S. government's National Toxicology Program has concluded that there is some concern about brain and behavioral effects on fetuses and young children at current exposure levels.

What You Should Know: Switch to glass products when possible.


Oxybenzone is a chemical used in cosmetics, and found in products like sunscreen, lip balm and moisturizers.

Health Hazards: Linked to hormone disruption and low-birthweight babies.

What You Should Know: About 97% of Americans are contaminated with oxybenzone, but current exposure levels have been deemed safe.


Found in toothpaste and tap water, fluoride is a form of the basic element fluorine.

Health Hazards: Neurotoxic and potentially tumorigenic if swallowed; the American Dental Association advises that children under 2 should not use fluoride toothpaste.

What You Should Know: Government studies support current fluoride levels in tap water, but studies on long-term exposure and cancers are ongoing.


Parabens are synthetic preservatives found in moisturizers, haircare products and shaving products.

Health Hazards: Hormone disruptions and cancer in animals.

What You Should Know: The FDA has deemed current levels in cosmetics safe, but paraben-free products are available.


Phthalates are chemicals used to give plastic its resiliency and flexibility, and is found in all kinds of products, from toys, raincoats and shower curtains to vinyl flooring, detergents and food packaging.

Health Hazards: Animal studies show reduced sperm counts and reproductive abnormalities, and there’s evidence of a link between phthalates and liver cancer in humans.

What You Should Know: In 2008, the U.S. Congress passed legislation to ban six phthalates from toys and cosmetics.

Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)

BHA is an additive that preserves fats and oils in food and cosmetics, and is found in chewing gum, snack foods and diaper creams.

Health Hazards: May promote cancer, according to lab studies on animals.

What You Should Know: BHA is hard to avoid in foods, but the U.S. government limits its levels.

Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA)

PFOAs are a component of Teflon, the best-known brand name of a synthetic fluoropolymer formula commonly used widely as a non-stick coating for fry pans and cooking pots, but PFOAs are also found in tap water. In 2015, EPA began regulatory action to limit or prohibit manufacturers from using PFOAs.

Health Hazards: PFOAs have been found to cause hormone disruption and reproductive abnormalities in animal and human studies.

What You Should Know: Avoid heating Teflon-coated cookware to high temperatures. This can release toxic fumes.


Perchlorates are used to make rocket fuel—and they’re found in drinking water, the soil and some vegetables.

Health Hazards: Perchlorates have a negative effect on the thyroid gland and hormone production.

What You Should Know: Environmental groups are urging the U.S. government to lower perchlorate levels in drinking water.

Decabromodiphenyl Ether (DBDE)

DBDE is a flame retardant found in electronics, furniture and carpeting.

Health Hazards: Permanent learning and memory deficits, hearing defects and decreased sperm count.

What You Should Know: In 2009, the EPA announced the decaBDE Phase-Out Initiative to eliminate the production, importation and sale of decaBDE by 2013.


Asbestos is a mixture of six naturally occurring silicate minerals, and is found in housing insulation, drywall, artificial fireplace logs and toys.

Health Hazard: Lung cancer and mesothelioma (an aggressive cancer affecting internal organs).

What You Should Know: Asbestos in products is not always labeled, and while most manufacturers have abandoned it or reduced its levels, asbestos is still not banned by the U.S. government.

Chemicals in plastics and other products seem harmless, but mounting evidence links them to a wide range of health problems.

Hello. This is Melissa, Head Nutritionist here at Optimal Health Products, pointing out something important that you may not realize about the toxins in your body.

Most people believe that having a strong immune system is either a matter of good genetics (“she/he must have come from hearty stock”) or diet choices (“she/he must eat all-organic”). 

The truth is,
genetics and food choices are NOT the root causes of your struggle to rid your body of toxins and existing toxin damage, no matter how hard you try. Your low energy levels, poor immune system and inability to lose belly fat have little to do with bad genes or ANY of the most common things believed to cause toxin damage.

The excess toxins in your body and your struggle to protect and heal your internal organs come down to 3 little-known factors that your doctor might not even know about!

Shocking, right?

In the next few minutes, I’m going to show you how the right proprietary blend of herbs has been shown to STOP these 3 little-known problems dead in their tracks so your immune system gets stronger, your energy levels rise and you no longer have to worry about dieting and exercise alone to get the toxin-free results you want.

Before I get to that, however, you should understand the three critical things that must take place to STOP toxins from accumulating in your body (especially in your colon, liver, and gallbladder):

#1 - You Must Rid theWay Toxins are Entering your Body

Toxins are in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. After many years of chemicals and pesticides being used to grow and was hour fruits and vegetables, growth hormones being injected into and fed to the animals we eat and chlorine and fluoride being dumped into our tap water, it’s nearly impossible to avoid coming into contact with dangerous toxins.

The big, ugly problem: Unless you do something quickly to “cleanup” the toxic buildup that is already inside you, you’ll never have the body or the healthier you that you want and deserve. 

#2 You Must Re-BalanceYour Liver

It begins with your internal organs, because modern living—along with toxins, poor diets and other challenges—have made it so most of us are internally toxic nearly all the time. This not only makes dieting nearly impossible, it also makes ever feeling healthy and full of energy a remote possibility.

Think about the last time you were energetic, had a healthy immune system and felt good about the way your body looked and felt.

Toxins built up in your internal organs start a vicious cycle that only gets worse—making you sluggish, causing colon and gallbladder problems, poor immunity, colds and other viruses all while wearing down your immune system

Then, this dietary and lifestyle roller coaster leads to something deeper and even more problematic—
disruption of your body’s natural hormone levels. I assure you,these hormones are having a MASSIVE effect on your ability to get rid of unhealthy fat accumulation.  Recently,researchers have discovered that there is a direct correlation to levels of toxicity in the body and the imbalance of unhealthy weight-gain hormones.

#3 You Must Optimize the Functions of Your Gallbladder and Colon

Without a properly balanced gallbladder and colon, waste builds up that turns into toxic “sludge” in your system. Added to that, this toxic waste canal so lead to an imbalance of good vs. bad bacteria in your stomach. The #1 way to tell if this is happening is what is called “belly bloat.” After years of roller-coaster dieting, bad food decisions, hormones all over the place and waste not properly removed, the results are water retention and a distention of the stomach due to intestinal gases. In worse cases, not balancing the health of your gallbladder and colon can lead to major damage resulting in organ failure or even cancer.

And it only gets worse with each passing year, not only making it harder to keep from getting sick and losing weight but actually causing you to FEEL SLUGGISH—no matter how hard you try to fix it. 

The result?

Your body can’t fight against diseases. You’re open to getting cancer of the liver, gallbladder and colon. The number you see on the scale goes up, and worst of all, you have no energy to even want to do anything about it. 

This vicious cycle not only accelerates with each passing year, it begins to compromise other parts of your health. Your liver begins to slow down. Stress goes up.Skin ages faster. Your develop gallstones and disorders of the colon, and these things accelerate the cycle. 

Each time,
the cycle speeds up, which is why the immune system is often so weakened later in life.

This is pretty disheartening for anyone looking to feel healthier, rid their bodies of toxins and transform their mood and energy. 

But what if there was a way that you could STOP these three factors?

What if you could get your body toxic-free, help heal your liver and get your gallbladder and colon working at top efficiency that would naturally lead to a healthy immune system, bursts of energy and better hormone levels resulting in added healthy weight loss?

If you could do that, you could essentially keep your body in a more toxic-free state—24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Can you just imagine how much MORE energy you’d have if these three factors were no longer standing in your way?

Well, there is a way to fix these toxic factors, optimize your immune system, balance hormones to fight weight gain and have energy like when you were a teenager.

The solution works deeply on a cellular and hormonal level, but it also works on the surface. So the results are rapidly felt, deep and long-term.


Great—because this is only just the beginning!

The solution you’re about to discover only takes one minute or less to implement. So there’s absolutely NO REASON why you have to be a victim of a toxic body that so many needlessly suffer through

Introducing our 100% all-natural proprietary blend of herbs called Natural Cleanse Plus ™. This unique but extremely effective combination of 4 potent herbs has been scientifically formulated to safely cleanse your internal body organs of harmful toxins.

The first ingredient is Cape Aloe,”which helps soothe the stomach while simultaneously working to reduce heartburn and indigestion. It also decreases the amount of time it takes for waste to move through your colon, thereby acting as a natural laxative. This herbal supplement also contains antioxidants that may prevent future damage to your cells by free radicals. This greatly aids you in fighting off infections and diseases.

Then we added Slippery Elm, a species of elm tree that has been used as an herbal remedy in North America for hundreds of years. It is extremely versatile,providing relief from a number of ailments, including gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD), Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diarrhea, diverticulitis, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is also rich in antioxidants that help relieve inflammation from things like stomach ulcers.

The next ingredient is Senna (Cassia angustifolia), a small shrub from which the leaves and fruit are used to make medicine. Found mostly in Egypt, India and the Arabic nations, it has traditionally been used as a laxative to support regularity and for the relief of chronic constipation. It is also used for weight loss.

…and lastly is Goldenseal. Commonly found in the deep woods from Vermont to Arkansas, Goldenseal is most often used for the common cold and other upper respiratory tract infections, as well as stuffy nose and hay fever.

More importantly, it is used to help with digestive disorders , including stomach pain and swelling (gastritis ), peptic ulcers , colitis , diarrhea , constipation , hemorrhoids, urinary tract infections, liver disorders and intestinal gas. It also has properties for lowering blood pressure, blood sugar and “bad” low-density cholesterol.

By using our proprietary formulation of these all-natural ingredients, you can start eliminating toxins from your body up to FIFTEEN TIMES more effectively than by using nothing at all, and up to 7 Times more effectively than with other leading cleanse products. 


Now, think about these 4 ingredients in light of the 3 factors mentioned earlier.

By using all of these breakthrough nutrients, you’re unlikely to ever get toxin damage to your liver, gallbladder and colon - resulting in healthier internal organs and digestive tract.

You will optimize your immune system, resulting in fighting off disease, higher energy levels and balanced hormones for an ideal healthy body weight.

The net result?

A toxin-free and balanced body—PLUS you’ll be better able to lose weight while raising your energy levels at the fastest rate possible!

Now, you could learn about these powerful ingredients and then try to independently source the individual ingredients. The problem is, after you’ve found all the products and sources, purchased minimum quantities of each (which is often a large amount), paid shipping on each, sorted through huge stacks of studies on the most effective dose of each one needed to help prevent and repair toxic damage and so on, you’ll literally have spent weeks or months of time, and hundreds (if not thousands!) of dollars—and you’ll have waited all that time to even begin making progress.
