Unfortunately, we suffer as a nation from overall vitamin D deficiency. Can Vitamin D be the “apple a day to keep the dentist away” philosophy? I think so. My parents let me eat loads of candy and didn’t keep on top of my brushing habits. Needless to say, I had to suffer fillings, caps and all of the stuff that makes visiting the dentist’s office scary. I never wanted that for my children.
I limited their pop intake to little or none, and cut down on processed foods, in addition to regular brushing. I tried my best to avoid products with fluoride and other stuff that shouldn’t be swallowed. I’m proud to say that none of my children have cavities!
My affinity for natural dental care ranges from Sole (Pink salt & water solution) to simply baking soda. I’m always on the look out for a good natural method of cleaning teeth and I was thrilled to try Organix South’s TheraNeem Tooth and Gum Powder.
This bad boy is made with organic supercritical extracts of Neem leaf and Neem bark along with other yummy herbs.
Neem is notorious for teeth care in India. It has been used for thousands of years and is referred to as the toothbrush twig. I just LOVE the ingredients in this product. The two the stand out to me me are PROBIOTICS and VITAMIN D3. Why probiotics? Here’s what Organix South has to say…
Our mouth and body are rich in microbial intelligence. Plainly put, we are more bacteria than human cells by 10 to 1! More and more we are discovering the importance of re-inoculating our gut microbiota with fermented foods and probiotics. We are also aware that this thriving eco-system of bacteria is important to keep in balance for the care of our teeth and gums. By adding healthy probiotics to our toothpowder, we are again offering leadership in holistic care for our teeth, gums and whole body.
