Currently, in the US, approximately 700 new chemicals are introduced each year. Unlike pharmaceuticals, most environmental chemicals in our everyday products have entered the marketplace without research or testing into their reproductive or other long-term toxic effects. The chemical companies don’t need lab mice – instead they have their unsuspecting consumers! Take this quiz to find out how many toxic chemicals are in the products you have used recently.
This toxic soup we live in is causing diminished egg quality and poor sperm health in couples of all ages. Poor egg quality in women makes it more difficult for sperm to fertilize the egg and a fertilized egg to implant in the uterine wall. Low sperm count and reduced motility in men lowers the likelihood that sperm will successfully fertilize the egg. The risk of having a baby with birth defects or other health problems increases as a result of lower quality eggs and sperm, and miscarriages due to chromosomal abnormalities are on the rise.
While the human body has intricate detoxification systems for metabolizing and eliminating everyday chemicals, these systems can become overloaded with this constant bombardment. Once this occurs, the toxic chemicals are allowed to accumulate in our tissues, where they begin to cause damage to our cells. As a result, chronic exposure to these environmental toxins can impact not only our fertility but the health of our baby.
Fairhaven Health developed FertileDetox in response to a mounting body of scientific evidence linking exposure to environmental toxins with a decrease in male and female fertility as well as increases in pregnancy complications and birth defects. FertileDetox for Men and Women is designed to improve fertility and promote the health of a baby by helping with efficient elimination of environmental toxins from the body.
