Ingredients & Purpose
Bentonite Clay - this is aged volcanic ash in the form of a fine powder. It is abrasive enough to remove plaque but not enough to damage enamel.
Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) - is a type of salt that has been used for centuries in personal care products. It's abrasive enough to remove stains without scratching the enamel. Baking soda tends to maintain a pH of 8.1 (7 is neutral) even when acids, or bases, are added to a solution. This means that it raises the ph in your mouth. Normal mouth pH ranges from 6.2 to 7.6 and you need to keep it above 5.6 in order to keep your tooth enamel strong and to fight cavities and gum disease. Additionally, Baking Soda attaches to fatty acids found in dirt and grease and because of its mild alkalinity works to turn them into a form of soap that can be dissolved in water and rinsed off easily.
Cinnamon Powder -Cinnamon is known to have antimicrobial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory effects on toothaches and can aid in fighting bad breath and tooth decay
Calcium Carbonate - is a carbonic salt that remineralizes teeth. Remineralization has a significant impact on the strength and hardness of dental enamel. Since there is no connection between the bloodstream and tooth enamel, supplements have no impact on the remineralization process. Remineralization is a process that occurs on the tooth's surface. Although damaged enamel cannot be rebuilt, weakened enamel can be restored with mineral toothpaste and mouthwash.
Dried Mint Leave Powder - tastes amazing, helps temporarily fight bad breath and gently remove stains. Its natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties help curb the growth of bacteria in the mouth which helps curb infections. It helps prevent swelling and reduces bleeding. Potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and phosphorus in mint leaves are essential for maintenance and formation of bone-density in teeth. The vitamins and minerals work together to fortify enamel and ensure strong teeth and gums. It is an alkaline food that contradicts the effects of the acidic environment that is responsible for gum diseases and tooth decay. Mint leaves can help keep your mouth moist and fresh. It stimulates the production of saliva and the enzymes that are important for digestion.
