The Brain

Let's just review some of the incredible jobs our brain does for us every day. 

  • It controls body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and breathing!

  • It is constantly absorbing information from the external world through our senses so we can stay safe, learn more and evolve.

  • Thinking, dreaming, reasoning and emotions all begin in the brain!

Not only can we protect our brain from harmful neurotoxins, we can optimize our brain function too.

Harmful Neurotoxins to stay away from:

1)  Aspartame: This harmful chemical is found in 6,000+ products around the world, including carbonated soft drinks, chewing gum, confections, gelatins etc.

2) Trans Fats: yet another reason to stay away from trans fat! Most trans fat is formed through an industrial process that adds hydrogen to vegetable oil, which causes the oil to become solid at room temperature. This partially hydrogenated oil is less likely to spoil, so foods made with it have a longer shelf life. Some restaurants use partially hydrogenated vegetable oil in their deep fryers, because it doesn't have to be changed as often as do other oils. Gross!

3) Artificial colours and flavours: Try to avoid food that states artificial flavouring in the ingredient list if you don't want to be adding chemicals into the food you eat. 

4) Chemicals in laundry detergent and cleaning supplies: Go natural when it comes to laundry detergent, deodorizers and cleaning supplies so you are not putting harmful chemicals in the body, on the body or breathing it in. We have a wide selection of natural products in store.

We have a local product, GoZero we are in love with. Their Zero Waste Detergent works wonders on laundry, dishwashing and just general cleaning, We love the dual purposes it offers and the eco-friendly nature of the product and packaging.
