Natural Vs. Synthetic Fibres: The Better Option for Your Well-Being

When it comes to our lifestyles nowadays, being so exposed to the things that pose threat, we’ve become more aware on what to focus on and do the changes that are necessary to help us out with improving our overall well-being. From exercising daily or at least three times a week, be it through jogging, or hitting the gym, to meditating, there are different workout options suitable for everyone. Combined with the perfect nutritious diet, taking all the needed vitamins, proteins, minerals and antioxidants, you can expect to have the optimal health and the body even celebrities can dream of.

However, despite all this, there are still certain aspects that mustn’t be overlooked. You’d be in for a bad surprise seeing there’s something wrong with your well-being even with all the healthy habits and wonder what went awry. Well, the key to solving this mystery could be hiding in your own home and the choices you make regarding the types of fibres.

Are you more of a person who’s looking into all the clothing and fabrics properties before you make up your mind on buying them or are you more of a person who just buys according to style and price? If you’re the second type, bad news is you’re going to have to change, but there’s also good news – it’s all worth it when your health is at stake. Of all the organic towels, bedding and clothing choices available for sale, get in the habit of choosing them over synthetic ones; you’d thank yourself later.

When comparing the natural organic towels, bedding and clothing with the synthetic variants, one can’t help but notice the difference in their composition. While the natural ones are made of fibres like wool, bamboo, cotton, silk, linen and hemp, synthetic ones as are acrylic, polyester, rayon, nylon, acetate and triacetate all contain chemicals to a certain degree which can be very toxic. Unlike the natural options, the synthetic have to undergo a process that heavily relies on use of detergents, petrochemical dyes, bleach, formaldehyde, and not only do they cause harm to our body, but some may even contain metals that do harm to our environment.

And oh, think again if you want to welcome stain resistant, wrinkle-free and moth repellent fabrics. They may seem appealing enough, but the perfluorinated chemicals they’re treated with are reason to convince you to opt for the natural fabrics instead. Organic fibres are eco-friendly, don’t harm your well-being and they feel better on the skin, particularly bamboo when it comes to anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic and breathable properties. There’s more to health than the ideal diet and exercising, so make sure you do the right choices.
