Common Antiseptic Ingredients are Disruptive to Your Vital Mitochondria!

This is an article you can read, featured in Parkinson's News Today on Sept 18, 2017. It is written by Patricia Inacio, PhD.

This is a great article to share with friends and family because does a great job to illustrate why we need to pay more attention to many of the substances we are using on a day-to-day basis.

We have been saying to our customers that substances found in many of the conventional cleaners are quite harmful to humans and animals. As the article points out, quaternary ammonium salts (QUATS) are in many products like lotions, soaps, shampoos, toothpastes, mouthwash, nasal spray, intravaginal sponges, fabric softener, and Rx eye drops. How often and how much of any or all of these products might you be exposed to in your home office or in commercial or industrial operations? And what about pet care products? Chances are that they are so many of the products people use everyday.

If you are unfamiliar with QUATS, please click on the link below to read the article and learn more on the study. The big takeaway is that they study shows that QUATS have negative effects on our mitochondria, the powerhouse of your cell, having implications on your energy levels and potential for mitochondrial disease. Chronic exposure to harmful substances is obviously problematic, making the body work harder just to rid itself of toxins. Poor functioning mitochondria has negative implications on health that applies for humans, their pets, aquatic life and other wildlife.

The article states:

“We performed a high-throughput screen of 1,600 antiseptics, additives, and drugs, and found that, of the numerous structural classes of compounds included in the screen, the QUATS were the most mitochondrially toxic class, both in terms of inhibition of ATP synthesis and mitochondrial O2 consumption,” researchers wrote.
