Our chemists have been working with me for the past decade to create a stable, maximum strength, oxygenating mouthwash formula that would work day after day to provide you with long-lasting fresh breath, a healthier mouth, healthier teeth and gums and overall improved health — because as I've said from day one — good health starts in the mouth!
Here's a bit of science on how the clinically-proven ingredients in TheraBreath PLUS Oral Rinse help to eliminate bad breath:
GREEN TEA - We include green tea in this mouthwash because green tea has been shown to have excellent antibacterial qualities and also strong deodorizing effects. In fact, A 2008 study at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver stated that green tea in oral care products reduced Volatile Sulfur Compounds which are the cause of odors in bad breath, better than gum, mints or capsules containing parsley-seed oil.
Clinical Studies in Japan showed a direct correlation between intake of green tea and the decrease of symptoms of gum disease including bleeding gums and gum tissue inflammation both of which are food sources for the bacteria that cause bad breath. By decreasing the amount of food available to bad breath bacteria, green tea decreases the bad breath bacteria's ability to multiply and cause bad breath.
Green tea can also decrease a person’s chance for getting cancer. Encouraging results were issued by the U. of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center following an initial study on the use of grean tee on oral cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, almost 36,000 people were expected to be diagnosed with oral and/or pharynx cancer in 2009. The five-year survival rate is 60%. M. D. Anderson researchers were the first to examine green tea extract as a chemopreventive agent in this population at high risk for developing cancer.
ALOE VERA - A ground-breaking 1998 study published in Molecular Cell Biochemistry observed that aloe vera improved wound healing by increasing the crosslinking of the collagen content of granulation tissue. This can eliminate gum bleeding and inflammation and speed up healing so that periodontal problems do not contribute to bad breath. According to the Academy of General Dentistry aloe vera can help heal internal ulcerations of the mouth, including canker sores, and lichen planus.
TEA TREE OIL - The University of Western Australia proved that even small concentrations of Tea Tree Oil were able to kill off virtually every type of bad breath producing bacteria including the worst offenders: Fusobacterium, Actinomyces and Prevotella.
The Journal of International Dentistry also published a study that proved natural Tea Tree Oil was a much better antimicrobial against oral microorganisms than chlorhexidine, a strong antibiotic rinse prescribed by many dentists in the U.S. Additionally, patients tolerated Tea Tree Oil much better than the chlorhexidine.
XYLITOL - All of our toothpastes, lozenges, chewing gums and probiotics contain xylitol. Now you can get xylitol in this mouthwash formula. A study at the Dental Institute University of Turku Finland proved that using xylitol in a daily oral care product dramatically reduced Strep mutans, the bacteria that causes cavities. The study also showed amazing reduction in plaque and reduction in the bacteria that cause bad breath.
A study at the National Institute for Health and Welfare in Finland showed that Xylitol also reduces biofilms, which are colonies of disease-causing bacteria that stick to the surfaces of your teeth. Biofilms are very resistant to antibiotics and are associated with cavities, gum disease and even heart disease.
ZINC GLUCONATE - Zinc salts clog up receptor sites on the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath which inhibits the bacteria from multiplying. However, although Zinc works great for bacterially related bad breath, it won't work on food odors. That's why TheraBreath blends Zinc and Oxygen in our proprietary ZincRx. The Oxygen and Zinc combination fights bad breath bacteria as well as food odors and unlike some nasty tasting, zinc releasing compounds which may dry the mouth and cause a burning sensation, our ZincRx is pleasant tasting and will not create a dry mouth.
Numerous studies also prove the importance of maintaining minimum zinc levels to maintaing your taste buds' abilities to actually taste. Rinsing 2-3 times daily with PLUS Oral Rinse will bathe your taste buds with Zinc Gluconate keeping them "satisfied" and able to rejuvenate their ability to differentiate flavors.
ESSENTIAL MINT OILS - All of our oral rinse flavors are natural, essential oils of mint because essential oils are also natural antibacterial agents. We have never used artificial flavors or colors.
SODIUM BICARBONATE (BAKING SODA) - One of the little known facts about TheraBreath is that we are the ONLY anti-acid mouthwash. Our pH is balanced so that we fight oral acids. Oral acids encourage bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease, enamel erosion, root erosion, tooth sensitivity, canker sores, etc. Sodium bicarbonate is one of the natural compounds we use to keep the pH "basic" and to reverse acidity in the mouth.
