3 NEGATIVE AFFECTS OF TRICLOSAN

 

Triclosan can be found in many deodorants.  Triclosan is a carcinogenic pesticide that you can absorb through you skin and easily store away in body fat.

Here are 3 negative effects of Triclosan:

1.  Impairs Muscle Function

Athletes, how do you expect to achieve peak performance with your muscle function impaired?

2.  Encourages the Growth of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Ironically, Triclosan is added as an antibacterial in personal care items.

3.  Disrupts Thyroid Function

Studies have shown that triclosan can disrupt the endocrine systems of several different animals, binding to receptor sites in the body, which prevents the thyroid hormone from functioning normally.

 

IN CONCLUSION:

I started Rooted Athlete because I wanted to make and sell products with ingredients that won't harm us.  It just didn't make sense to me to use a product to improve my health or personal well being that had other ingredients in it that would harm me.

I hope that you enjoy our chemical free, Triclocsan free, and certified organic deodorant that actually works.

In Health,

Jack Schram, Founder
