The Latest TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Please note: if you have already been lucky enough to win one of these bloggers giveaways, please refrain from entering in order to allow others to win. Thank you!

Christy over at HOME mom MADE has written an extremely great review and giveaway on our TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics. We highly recommend you go here to read the entire review, but we will share her philosophy on probiotics. “Quite frankly there are tons of products out there that can cover up or take away symptoms such as bad breath, but they’re not fixing the problem(s). This is my main concern with Western Medicine in general which I will tackle in more detail later but soon. Take a cold for example. Modern (western) medicine will have you treat the runny nose, taking away symptoms but doing nothing for the cold. That cold is your body’s way of communicating with you. Our bodies are truly magnificent machines that can heal themselves when properly taken care of. The catch is the care. I really like TheraBreath because they line up with this philosophy. Helping your body produce saliva gets rid of bad breath. What about Cavities, Plaque, Sensitive Teeth (I’ve got several), and even Ear Aches? Your body is a fighting machine that wants to protect itself given the right tools.” We truly couldn’t have written a better case for the use of probiotics! Go Christy! Pay HOME mom MADE a visit to read the rest…it’s worth the trip!

Amber of Parent Palace opens up with her battle with bad breath, “When I wake up in the morning I have “dragon breath”, at least that’s what my son calls it. He refuses to get within 10 feet of me until I brush, for fear of having his eyebrows singed off. The main cause of this is excessive drying of my mouth due to not drinking enough water (I’m assuming), but John will tell you it’s because I snore like a rhino. Potato / Poh-tah-toe (haha.) I use to be offended by this, but I’ve grown use to it. Now, I don’t have to worry about it as much, I’m no longer the Mommy Dragon in the morning.” Was TheraBreath the answer to her morning breath? Why not go here to find out? Rumor has it she may also be doing a TheraBreath giveaway too, so keep an eye out.

Things Sent My Way has posted her TheraBreath review and giveaway. She’s tested out our TheraBreath’s Mouth-Wetting Lozenges, TheraBreath Oral Rinse, and Toothpaste. This blogger also discusses how fighting bad breath is important to her profession. “As a teacher, I spend a lot of time talking and sometimes while very close to others.  Needless to say I do everything I can to make sure I don’t have bad breath.  (I think we all remember that one teacher who got a little too close and we wished they would take a step back – I never want to be that teacher!) So I was pretty curious when given the opportunity to try a great line of products specifically designed to tackle bad breath!” Did we help give this teacher the confidence (and fresh breath) she needs every day?

The Latest TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Heartfelt Homeschooling is back, this time doing a review of our Multi Symptom Probiotics and hosting a giveaway for a box our Mouth Wetting Lozenges. April writes, “Bless my youngest son’s heart – he deals with several oral health issues. He’s very cavity prone, unlike the rest of us. In addition, he often is battling several canker sores or even cold sores. He currenty has cavities on several baby teeth that the dentist has decided to just let fall out rather than fill. Sometimes they ache. He seemed the perfect candidate for this process.” Yes we agree, her son was definitely ideal for our probiotics. But did they work? What did he think? What does she think? You’ll have to go here to find out.

A delicious obsession has posted its TheraBreath review and giveaway. In it, Danielle (the blog’s owner and busy mom of two) reviews our TheraBreath Oral Rinse, Toothpaste and TheraBreath’s Mouth-Wetting Lozenges. By the way, she’s hosting a giveaway too so go here to enter and read her entire review. Danielle’s review is interesting. She has given each product a star rating (the more stars, the better). She is definitely honest on her opinions of the taste of our products, but also about their effectiveness, but we don’t want to spoil the fun. Stop by A delicious obsession to see what we mean.

If you’re interested in our new Multi Symptom Probiotics, but aren’t sure if you can follow the treatment directions, Leslie Loves Veggies has some reassurance for you in her latest review and giveaway. If a product requires a lot of time and work, chances are I won’t stick with it.  I found TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotic very easy to use and no more time consuming than brushing my teeth and rinsing my mouth like I always do.” Sounds simple enough right? See what else she had to say here and it’ll also give you a chance to enter her giveaway while you’re there.

Two weeks ago, we had posted Grandma Sez So’s part 1 to her Multi Symptom Probiotics review. Now part 2 is done – read it here and enter her Lozenges giveaway. As always, Laurie’s review is clever, funny and educational, if you’re not already reading her posts, you really should be. Find out what she noticed just on day 3 of her probiotic treatment and her tip for gargling and rinsing so you don’t drool “like a St. Bernard” as Laurie puts it. She even got her adorable little granddaughter to get in on the 7 day treatment. Visit Grandma Sez So, it’s worth the trip!

New Research Confirms SLS in Toothpaste can Aggravate Cold Sores

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

When we do the daily routine of brushing, rinsing and flossing at least twice a day, we all have a common goal: a healthy mouth and teeth. However, one specific ingredient in your oral care products may actually be hurting your oral health rather than helping it.

Do you suffer from cold or canker sores? Then you may want to check the ingredients in your toothpaste. Research done by clinical professor of oral biology at the University of California, Los Angeles, Fariba Younai recently gave a talk that discussed sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) – a common ingredient in many toothpastes.  Dr. Younai’s research shows that SLS can increase the chances of chronic aphthous ulcers (cold sores) for people with less than perfect immune systems.

What is SLS? It’s a surfactant which is a type of foaming or wetting agent found in many of your common toothpastes. It creates the foaming action while you brush with the toothpaste. However, this foam is only to make the user think that the product is more effective, it actually doesn’t have any added benefit – actually the converse. Past studies have noted that SLS can irritate the walls of the inner cheeks, gums and underside of lips where the toothpaste has the most contact with skin.

Dr. Younai suggested the use of TheraBreath toothpaste amongst the recommended brands that are SLS-free. TheraBreath toothpaste does not contain SLS and will not have the same risk of sores developing in the interior of the mouth – just another benefit of using TheraBreath products. Not only do they keep your breath fresh, you also won’t have to worry about dealing with constant and reoccurring painful cold sores.

The TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways Tour

Monday, April 11th, 2011

TheraBreath teamed up with the wonderful Mel at MamaBuzz to do a tour with some of her network of bloggers. Here are brief snippets and links for each, some are hosting giveaways too.

The first is the organizer and superblogger Mel at Mama Buzz. She did a TheraBreath review and is hosting a giveaway as well. Here’s a sneak peak “There are times that bad breath bothers me, particularly in the morning. My husband, on the other hand, has a hard time, which I really feel could be attributed to dental issues. For awhile now, we’ve looked for something to help him; he’s tried using different types of mouthwash because that supposedly kill bacteria in the mouth. I’ve even started buying a new toothpaste that’s supposed to kill bacteria. More recently, though, we’ve been introduced to TheraBreath.” Read the rest and enter here.

Next on the tour is Cinnamon Hollow Reviews. Enter her giveaway and read her review here. She discusses our products and the issue of tonsil stones in detail and her blog is about “showcasing products that make life easier & a little more fun!”

April at Heartfelt Homeschooling discusses why she wanted to do a TheraBreath review and giveaway. “I elected to review TheraBreath for several reasons. One – I like the option of reviewing oral care products because this aspect of hygiene is very important to our family. Second – the web site claims that using TheraBreath may help prevent canker sores or mouth ulcers. Myself, my husband and my youngest son all suffer from these ulcers frequently.” Enter her giveaway and read the rest here.

The Latest TheraBreath Blog Reviews and Giveaways

Friday, April 8th, 2011

The Frugal Fun Family has written a great TheraBreath review and is also hosting a giveaway. Michelle (the busy blogger) is also “a freelance writer and married mom of three boys.” Her review is very organized and easy to understand – check it out here. She used our products for several weeks in order to do a thoughtful, accurate review. She breaks each product down with a summary, photo , pros and cons and her conclusion. She’s also great about stating her opinions, like she prefers a very minty taste to her oral care products. Along with being a blogger, mom, wife and more, she’s also a great sister. “In fact, I even passed my products along to my sister for her to try–that was a big test for her, as she has a new boyfriend.” Visit Frugal Fun Family to see if we passed Michelle’s sister’s test.

Night Owls Perch has posted her TheraBreath review and giveaway. Not only is her review to the point and has a giveaway (who doesn’t want to win free stuff, right?) she’s also funny! You have to read the full review and enter the giveaway here. It’ll only take a few minutes and it’s definitely worth the trip. Aside from doing reviews and giveaways, Night Owls Perch also lets her readers know about special deals and coupons.

Do you love Girly Girl Giveaways? Then you have to stop by Monica’s blog of the same name to read her review and giveaway for TheraBreath. Check it out here. In her review, Monica discusses the difference of opinion that her and her husband had about our products. She also goes into detail about why our toothpaste does not foam or have a strong flavor – this gal definitely gets it! “It [the toothpaste] also does not foam up the way others do. These things did not bother me at all. Especially since I understand that most of those minty tastes in those products are made by added chemicals and sugars that only mask the odors of bad breath and may even cause odor causing bacteria to multiply faster. And as for the foaming, most toothpastes add the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate to appear like something is happening, in reality this additive has no real effect on how clean your teeth are getting.”
