Hidden Plastics in Your Food

Hidden Plastics in Your Food

In our modern world where convenience often trumps caution, our daily consumption habits might be exposing us to more than just nutrients. Plastics, particularly harmful chemicals like phthalates and bisphenols, are making their way into our food at alarming rates.

This issue, highlighted by Consumer Reports, is a wake-up call to be more mindful of what we ingest and how we can protect our bodies from these silent threats to our health.

Plastic chemicals are ubiquitous in modern food production and packaging. From the containers used to store leftovers to the plastic wrap covering our fresh produce, these materials can leach harmful substances into the foods we eat. Phthalates, used to make plastics more flexible, and bisphenols, used in food containers and packaging, are known endocrine disruptors. They can interfere with hormone function, potentially leading to a myriad of health issues, including reproductive problems, developmental issues, and even certain cancers.

Our exposure to these chemicals isn't just from obvious sources like plastic water bottles. They can be found in:

- Processed Foods: Items stored in plastic containers or packaged in plastic materials.

- Takeout Containers: The convenience of takeout often comes with the downside of plastic exposure.

- Microwave Meals: Heating food in plastic containers can increase the leaching of chemicals.

- Plastic Utensils:  Even the utensils we use can contribute to our daily intake of harmful chemicals. When plastic utensils come into contact with hot food, they can release these chemicals even more readily.

COAST to the Rescue: Detox and Recover

At COAST Health, we understand the importance of minimizing exposure to harmful substances and the need for effective recovery when exposure is unavoidable. Our innovative Recovery+ formula is designed to support your body's natural detoxification processes, helping you recover from the onslaught of everyday toxins, including those insidious plastic chemicals.

Here's how Recovery+ can help:

  1. NAD+ Support: NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) plays a crucial role in cellular metabolism and energy production. By supporting NAD+ levels, Recovery+ helps enhance your body’s natural ability to repair and regenerate, crucial for detoxifying and recovering from plastic chemical exposure.
  1. Glutathione Boost: Glutathione is known as the body's master antioxidant, essential for detoxification processes. Recovery+ supports glutathione levels, helping to protect cells from oxidative stress and aiding in the elimination of toxins.
  1. Glucarate Benefits: Glucarate helps in the detoxification of environmental toxins, including harmful plastic chemicals. By supporting the body’s natural detox pathways, Recovery+ ensures that these toxins are effectively processed and eliminated.
  1. Hydration and Replenishment: Proper hydration is essential in flushing out toxins. We recommend mixing the Recovery+ powder sticks with 16oz of water. If you prefer the Recovery+ shots, we’d still recommend hydrating well to ensure you’re maximizing the detoxification benefits.

While it's virtually impossible in today’s world to completely avoid exposure to plastic chemicals, being proactive about our health can make a significant difference. By making informed choices about the food we consume and incorporating detoxifying and recovery-supporting products like Recovery+ into our daily routine, we can mitigate the impact of these hidden threats.
