Can Gum Disease Make Conceiving More Difficult?

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Are you or a loved one trying to get pregnant? Then you’ll definitely want to read on…

ScienceDaily.com reports that at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology Professor Roger Hart stated the gum disease has as much a negative  impact on trying to conceive as obesity.  As we’ve previously stated, gum disease in pregnant women (or “pregnancy  gingivitis”) can result in a premature birth.

Periodontal disease (gum disease) has been linked with many types of illness: respiratory and kidney disease, type 2 diabetes, heart disease. However, this new report says that having gum disease prior to conception may make trying to get pregnant that much more difficult.

Professor Hart is the Professor of Reproductive Medicine at the University of Western Australia in Perth and Medical Director of Fertility Specialists of Western Australia. He stated, “Until now, there have been no published studies that investigate whether gum disease can affect a woman’s chance of conceiving, so this is the first report to suggest that gum disease  might be one of several factors that could be modified to improve the chances of pregnancy.”

Having Fresh Breath Doesn’t Have to Cost a Bundle

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

If you are afflicted with bad breath, you may be willing to go to any length and spend any amount of money to fix it. However, having fresh breath doesn’t have to break the bank. Women’s Health published a list of fresh breath tips that won’t hurt your wallet. Most of them were fairly obvious and we are always suggesting the same solutions: brushing, flossing and rinsing with an alcohol-free mouthwash at least twice daily along with cleaning your tongue along with your teeth and the interior of your mouth.

The magazine did also include tips such as chewing sugar-free gum (to avoid dry mouth), eating a carbohydrate-heavy diet and drinking unsweetened tea. These suggestions might help reduce oral odor caused by the VSCs that thrive in your mouth and compounds in your blood stream.

Along with these helpful tips, we’d also like to suggest trying a sugar-free mint if gum isn’t your thing. Also, be sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water each day. If you want to be proactive about the health of your mouth (and the smell of your breath) we’d like to suggest trying our Multi Symptom Probiotics which can introduce healthy and helpful bacteria into your oral cavity and thus fight of the odor causing bugs. It’s also important to see your dentist regularly to prevent any problems that could get expensive to treat.

Regardless of how much money you make, fresh breath doesn’t have to be something you can’t afford. Just make sure you choose the best products for the health of your breath and mouth and it will save you a bunch of dental bills in the long run.

Mosquitoes love Bad Breath and Stinky Feet

Monday, May 30th, 2011


It’s almost summertime and when someone thinks of summer, tons of images come to mind: barbecues, time by the pool, trips to the beach, summer vacation and – (oh yes) mosquitoes. Unfortunately, with the warm weather, mosquitoes and their itchy bites often come along on camping trips and visit you at home on those warmer summer nights.

Did you know you can help ward off these pesky buzzing critters by making sure your bad breath is in check? It’s true. A researcher at the Netherlands’ Wageningen University and Research Center discovered that when African malaria mosquitoes (Anopheles gambiae) are far away from prey (yes, that includes us) they use nasal receptors to smell the carbon dioxide the all humans expel on their breath. While it’s not guaranteed to stop mosquito bites, you may want to consider using our oral care probiotics or fresh breath products to better your chances of going unnoticed to those hungry bloodsuckers.

Weirder yet, these mosquitoes stop following the traces of bad breath when they approach their meal and home in on the smell of our feet! Did you know that Dr. Katz also has a solution for bad smelling feet? It’s called Sweet Feet and you can purchase and learn more about it out here. It’s just a simple powder that you combine with water to soak your feet and is great for fighting fungus and athlete’s foot too. This will eliminate any unpleasant foot odor (is there really any other kind?) and also help arm you against mosquitoes.

While there are tons of precautions that people can take to be free of mosquito bites, next time you’re using a bug spray or candle, you may also want to check how your breath and feet smell – just to be safe and bite-free. Enjoy the summer!
