The Trouble with Antibiotics


Getting rid of bacteria in your body seems like a no-brainer, right?

Wrong. Today there is a widespread abuse of antibiotics that is actually putting people at risk for health problems and immune deficiencies.

Studies show a link between the use of antibiotics and developmental inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). While this does not necessarily suggest the IBD is a direct effect of antibiotic use, it still proves that the two are associated.

The antibiotics you ingest aren’t the only problems for your immunities. Anti-bacterial wipes, soaps and hand sanitizers are culprits, too.

Over-using antibiotics, antibacterial soaps and more is actually harmful to the human body. Microbes – microorganisms that are often bacteria – are not always bad for you. In fact, our bodies need a steady amount of microbes to maintain balance!

Most people pile on the hand sanitizer right after touching gas pumps, railings or even handles in public restrooms. The thought process behind this is that we are doing our body a favor by eliminating bacteria. Unfortunately, harsh antibacterial products don’t know how to distinguish the good bacteria from the bad.

Our skin is our first line of defense. Consequently, if you constantly attack your skin barrier with anti-bacterial substances you are actually reducing your skin’s healthy microbes and strong defense.

Be mindful of the things you put on your skin, as that often is a factor in how the rest of your body’s immune system responds. Many skincare products on the market contain harsh chemicals that strip away good bacteria with the bad. At BioEsse, we make sure our products promote healthy microbes and replenish unhealthy skin.

Our facial cleanser, serum, lotion and eye cream are each made with all-natural ingredients and infused with Qi ProBiomics, a probiotic extract. Our products promote overall health and it starts with good skincare.

It is important to stay healthy and take certain measures to prevent diseases. On that note, be careful and don’t go overboard with the anti-bacterial products. Care for your body and in return, it will care for you!
