What you eat matters. But what about how it’s packaged?

BPA (or bisphenol A) is used in plastic goods and packaging.

At this point, it’s so common—and so much a part of our everyday life—that it’s leaching from landfills into our environment. It’s in our water. It’s in our food. And it’s in everyone’s blood.

I recently spoke to Sara Gottfried, a guest at Body Ecology’s Healthy Gut Summit. If you know Dr. Gottfried, you know that she’s all about keeping your hormones healthy.

While we were chatting, Dr. Gottfried explained that BPA interferes with our hormones. Excessive levels of BPA have been linked to health problems like cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, leaky gut, and irritable bowel.

One of the most important steps that you can take for healthy hormones (and a healthy gut) is to get rid of BPA.

The problem is that BPA is like background noise—it’s everywhere.

But we can minimize our exposure by avoiding some of the most common sources of BPA, like:

  • Canned foods
  • Plastic bottled water
  • Receipts
  • Animal foods—especially offal, like liver
  • Baby formula, which can contribute up to 37% of the BPA levels found in babies

If you would like to learn more tips about balancing your hormones and fixing your gut, save your spot at Body Ecology’s first ever Healthy Gut Summit.

    How do you get rid of plastic bottled water if your tap water doesn't agree with you even though it's double filtered? I moved into a new community and didn't hesitate to drink the tap water until I got horrible stomach pains from it. Do you think a gradual move from the bottled water to filtered tap water would work?

    Offal???Liver?? Paelos (and others) say this is one of the best parts of the animal to eat.
    Do you mean non grass fed animal liver?

    Can you please package the (Digestive Care Multi) in something other than plastic? or split them up in recyclable plastic containers rather than just wrappers.
