Pesticides, Toxins and Your Microbiome—Restoring Your Inner Ecology

Pesticides, Toxins and Your Microbiome—Restoring Your Inner Ecology

You make targeted efforts to protect your long-term health—from toxins, immune assailants, and preventable conditions…But what about protecting the friendly flora that make up your vast inner ecology?

The state of your microbiome means the difference between health and vitality, or…any number of unwanted alternatives. And though you can’t see them, you can certainly notice the benefits of billions of probiotic microbes working together within your internal ecosystem. 

Results like… better digestion, immunity, energy, mental health…the list goes on and on. In fact, your bacteria outnumber the cells in your body by about 10:1—and as we’re finding, they perform countless functions that are essential for your health and longevity.

In today’s age, your friendly flora need all the help and protection they can get, because they’re under attack. Toxins, pesticides, antibiotics, and other common chemicals and pollutants can damage healthy bacteria in your body, wipe out their diversity, disrupt the delicate balance of your GI environment, and foster the growth of unhealthy organisms instead.

The consequences of this massive disruption are just beginning to be understood. But what we know so far doesn’t look good.

One class of common toxins that can be particularly damaging to your microbiome is a group of pesticides called organophosphates. Commonly used as insecticides, organophosphates are found on produce, household products, and in our water and surrounding environments.

Organophosphates, including the highly toxic herbicide, glyphosate, are shown to alter and disrupt healthy microbial populations in the GI tract. They are also shown to damage the GI lining, which can lead to what’s known as gut permeability.

You’ve heard of leaky gut, right? This is caused by gut permeability which allows undigested food, toxins, and microbes to escape into your bloodstream from holes formed in the lining of your digestive tract. This in turn can trigger ongoing inflammation and auto-immune-like symptoms. Certain organophosphates and other pesticides and environmental toxins are shown to play a role in leaky gut.

Pesticides are also shown to change the composition of your microbiome—and not in a good way. They can also drive metabolic and immune imbalances. Other studies show that one organophosphate in particular, diazinon, promotes the growth of bacteria linked to respiratory infections and other conditions.

Two Step Solution: Clinical-Grade Detox + Active Microbiome Support

One of the first steps to support a balanced, diverse and healthy microbiome and promote optimal vitality, is to avoid toxic chemicals like health-robbing pesticides. 

Unfortunately, in today’s age, that’s not as easy as it may seem. Even if you choose organic food and eat clean, these pervasive chemicals can still get into your digestive tract, or nest inside cells, tissues and organs—for years.

That’s why clinical-grade detox is so important—not just for yourself, but for your friendly flora as well. Detox is an essential first step to restoring microbiome health—even before taking any probiotics.
