Benefits of Natural Products for Health and Wellness

In any store, there is a vast selection of beauty and hair care products, many of which contain chemical ingredients that can cause more harm than good.  Using whole, natural ingredients eliminates the dangers of chemical products, which can be absorbed through contact with eyes, mouth, hair, and skin.

It is simple to create Do-It-Yourself products to replace cleansers, soaps, shampoos, and other personal care items, and several affordable options are on the market, available in stores or online.  Consider the following benefits of natural products over common chemical products:

No Chemical Reactions: Natural products contain no synthetic chemicals, reducing the buildup of chemicals and man-made compounds in the body.  Chemicals, including fragrances and dyes, in many common products can cause skin irritation, allergies, and headaches.  Natural products rely on natural ingredients and fragrances, eliminating these negative reactions to chemical ingredients.

No Environmental Toxins: Natural products do not release toxins into the air and water supply through chemical manufacturing processes.  Organic products use even fewer chemicals by avoiding pesticides in their production.

No Preservatives: Natural products do not contain parabens, used as preservatives in many conventional personal care products.  Parabens can cause rashes on the skin and even alter the body’s natural balance of hormones.  Using natural health and beauty products means avoiding these negative side-effects.

To begin transitioning to natural products, choose one or two to start and replace the artificial-ingredient product with a homemade or other natural product.  Over time, as products run out, replace them with their natural counterparts until the stock of products has been replaced by natural alternatives.  Recipes for natural products can be found with a quick Internet search.

Aside from topical products for hair and body, natural supplements can also help the body to build and maintain skin, hair, and overall cell health.  Vitamins and other dietary supplements can ward off disease and signs of aging such as hair loss, poor eyesight, reduced bone density, and skin ailments.  

Vitamins are an all-natural way to promote and maintain healthy hair. Every one of the ingredients has an intend and specific purpose for helping with hair and follicle health and nourishment. Saw Palmetto Extract, taken from the Saw Palmetto plant has been shown to ward off the negative effects of DHT, a chemical in the body that chokes off the hair follicle, leading to its eventual demise and your hair loss. Two capsules per day has been shown to contribute to overall hair and scalp health. If you are nursing or pregnant make sure to consult with your doctor before taking supplements.
