Description:

The Phthalates & Parabens Profile helps identify everyday exposures to toxins from the use of items such as personal care products and plastic food containers.

 

The Phthalates & Parabens Profile helps assess levels of phthalates and parabens in the body, which can help identify if exposures correlate with health issues. Phthalates and parabens are known as xenoestrogens, which bind to estrogen receptors and disrupt the endocrine system. Knowing a patient’s body burden of phthalates and parabens can assist in creating treatment plans to help achieve patient wellness. Environmental toxins should be evaluated as a "first step" to help patients get back on the road to wellness.

 

Phthalates, also called "plasticizers", are found in numerous everyday products, including children's toys, cosmetics, cleaning products, air fresheners, perfumes, furniture, vinyl flooring, plastic food containers, and many medical products.

 

Parabens are used as preservatives to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi in personal care products, including shampoo and conditioners, soaps, makeup, lotions and creams, shaving gels, hair gel, and re-packaged foods.

 

Exposure to phthalates and parabens is more common than you may realize. Phthalates and parabens are often classified as xenoestrogens, foreign compounds in the body functioning as endocrine disruptors by binding specifically to estrogen receptors.
