Why Natural Mouthwash Is Better For You
Show Off Your Natural Smile Today!
For many people, mouthwash is an integral part of their oral care routine. And though dentists agree mouthwash is important and offers numerous advantages to your oral health, they also agree on something else ...
Chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash are hurting you more than they're helping you. (1)
But don't worry. There's a better choice out there, one that offers even more benefits than those over-the-counter mouthwashes that contain harmful chemicals.
In this blog we talk about the health benefits of mouthwash and why NATURAL MOUTHWASH is a better option than over-the-counter mouthwash, and why you need to start using it today!
It Doesn't Kill Good Bacteria
Source: Knowable Magazine
Most over-the-counter mouthwashes like Listerine contain at least 26% alcohol, which they claim kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria. (2)
But there’s a problem with this.
The chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash are killing good bacteria too! (3)
The good bacteria in your mouth is essential to maintaining good oral health AND maintaining healthy blood pressure. (4)
FUN FACT: It only takes 12 - 24 hours for plaque to build up to support bacteria. NATURAL MOUTHWASH kills bad bacteria and prevents the buildup of plaque and the progression of gum disease! (5)
Alcohol is a common component of over-the-counter mouthwash. However, it kills blood-controlling, good bacteria and has even been linked to oral cancer.(1)
After all, there's a reason your body is telling you that the burn from your mouthwash hurts!
The chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash can also disrupt your body’s natural production of nitric oxide, an essential molecule your body needs to regulate your blood pressure. (6)
This can cause your blood pressure to fluctuate, which can lead to abnormalities in bodily function.
It Won't Dry You Out
Saliva is an essential part of healthy bodily function. It's 98% water, and your body uses it 24 hours a day to help balance your mouth's pH and to aid digestion. (7)
Unfortunately, over-the-counter mouthwash dries out your mouth and throws your saliva production into flux. (8)
With over-the-counter mouthwash, your saliva pH lowers and the acidity of your mouth grows, which can lead to tissue damage and danger to your teeth. (9)
FUN FACT: The chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash can undo the benefits of exercise by raising your blood pressure! NATURAL MOUTHWASH is the healthy option! (10)
Your saliva is what helps wash away bad breath germs and gives you a healthy, clean mouth.
The chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash upsets your saliva production, which increases susceptibility to cavities and gingivitis, and in turn causes your breath to worsen. (11)
It's Better For You!
Sometimes it's as simple as that.
Over-the-counter mouthwash contains dozens of artificial chemicals that are dangerous to the human body, such as alcohol, fluoride, parabens, chlorhexidine, and formaldehyde (yes - the chemical used in embalming), and chlorine dioxide, just to name a few. (1)
These chemicals can cause stomach distress, even if ingested in small amounts. (12)
After all, there’s a reason the American Dental Association doesn’t recommend over-the-counter mouthwash for anyone under the age of six. (13)
FUN FACT: If you have a toothache, NATURAL MOUTHWASH is the best way to alleviate your pain by eliminating the bacteria and plaque buildup that makes your teeth sensitive and your gums ache! (14)
The chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash can also cause gut problems, and in some cases, even more serious health conditions like Alzheimer's, respiratory problems, and cardiovascular disease. (15)
Over-the-counter mouthwash may also worsen open wounds or lesions already in your mouth. Instead of killing bad bacteria to hasten the healing process, your over-the-counter mouthwash could be irritating you even more! (16)
IT WORKS WITH YOUR ROUTINE
What many people don't know is that over-the-counter mouthwash can actually undo the rest of your oral care routine.
In fact, dentists say that alcohol and fluoride, common in many over-the-counter mouthwashes, are so strong that using over-the-counter mouthwash too soon after brushing can actually reduce the benefits of brushing your teeth! (17)
FUN FACT: Mouthwash, which usually carries a 27% alcohol rate, contains FOUR TIMES the amount of alcohol in beer, and MORE THAN DOUBLE the amount of alcohol in wine. (18)
Other chemicals in over-the-counter mouthwash are also detrimental to your oral health, such as chlorhexidine, which can trigger allergic reactions with the other oral care products you use. (19)
Chlorine dioxide, which is found in many over-the-counter mouthwashes, is considered bleach and is literally tearing away all the good from the rest of your routine. (20)
