Tooth Truths - Xylitol, Baking Soda, Peppermint Oil and Tooth Meridians
Xylitol hydrates the mouth with a tidal wave of salivation that allows you to use it as a mouthwash on the go.
It is also documented by the Journal of Natural Science, Biology, and Medicine to fight bacteria that cause dental caries.
There are many excellent papers on the positive effects of Xylitol
Well known for its bacteria fighting properties, tooth whitening, and stain removal, Baking Soda acts in CRUSHTABS to lower acidity and balance pH.
This is well proven as stated in The Journal of the American Dental Association below:
ORGANIC ESSENTIAL OIL OF PEPPERMINT
Peppermint Oil has been studied by Dr. Mercola to be antiviral, antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antioxidant, analgesic, radioprotective, and antiedema. And it leaves a refreshing feeling & tastes great. There is also great information about it at Pub Med.
Here's another very good study :
Therapeutic properties (quoted from Pub Med)
Antibacterial: Peppermint oil shows an inhibitory effect on the proliferation of staphylococci
Antifungal: Studies show that EOs exhibit fungistatic and fungicidal activities against both the standard and clinical strains of Candida species at concentrations ranging from 0.5 to 8 μL/mL. EOs exhibit similar antifungal effect against the azole-resistant and azole-susceptible strains
Antibiofilm: Biofilm inhibition in fungal strains helps to decrease pathogenesis and drug resistance. Studies show that EO inhibits the biofilm formation of Candida albicans completely up to 2 μl/ml in a dose-dependent manner.
