6 Toxic Toothpaste Ingredients Disrupting Your Thyroid, Endocrines and Hormones

Conventional toothpaste is full of toxins. These toxins make your teeth look pretty and feel clean while they actually erode the tooth enamel and gums. Conventional whitening toothpastes are very toxic to the mouth. All of the conventional brands and many of the “natural” brands however put chemicals in their toothpaste that no one would ever knowingly put in their body, except fluoride, a known carcinogen and neurotoxin that people have been brainwashed into believing is good for them.

If you want to buy a natural toothpaste, here is a list of ingredients you should avoid, and why:


Triclosan is used in many skin care products, deodorants, laundry detergents, mattresses, toilet fixtures, hand sanitizers, toothpaste, and more. This chemical has powerful antibacterial and antifungal properties, but it’s also been linked to numerous health problems. Triclosan impedes the thyroid gland, is likely an endocrine disruptor, and it may cause cancer. Triclosan is used in some of the most popular toothpastes.

Aspartame, Saccharine

These are artificial sweeteners that often show up in toothpaste formulas and many sugar free foods. Each has been linked to many serious health problems and should be avoided altogether.


Fluoride is an endocrine disrupter and it calcifies the penile gland, and it can reduce thyroid and adrenal gland function. Fluoride increases cancer risk, causes damage to DNA, inactivates enzymes within the body, accelerates aging, disrupts the immune system, and should be avoided both in toothpaste and in water.

There’s a lot of talk of Nazi Germany using fluoride to pacify the Jews, but it wasn’t verified to be true.


Glycerin is not toxic. The problem is that when it’s scrubbed onto the surface of teeth, it leaves a residue that is hard to remove. You can rinse your mouth two to three dozen times to remove it.

Calcium and phosphorus, minerals the teeth need which are normally present in our saliva, continually flow through of our teeth. Glycerin residue prevents this natural flow, the natural demineralization and remineralization process. This accelerates tooth decay and other dental problems.


Diethanolamine (DEA) is in products that foam like toothpaste. DEA disrupts hormones and forms cancer-causing nitrates. Dr. Samuel Epstein, professor of environmental health at University of Illinois, states that repeated exposure to skin may lead to increased risk of liver and kidney cancers.


Sorbitol is used as a thickener and a humectant to prevent toothpaste from hardening when the tube is opened or when the toothpaste is exposed to air. Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol (similar to xylitol) used to sweeten some “health food” products. Some researchers have recently discovered that sorbitol found in chewing gum can cause chronic diarrhea. Very little research has been done on this chemical.


Don’t buy the brands with the aforementioned ingredients. A brand with any of the ingredients listed should not be the brand you choose to trust.
