This means that you can pickup a box of TheraBreath Multi-Symptom Probiotics for only $9.99!

Want to Know How to Save 50% or More On Probiotics?

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Last week we let you know that we have made a MAJOR IMPROVEMENT to TheraBreath Probiotics AND have made them a LOT LESS EXPENSIVE at the same time.

Our new TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics are the only oral care probiotics in the world with patented BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 beneficial bacteria. If you have used our Aktiv-K12 Probiotics for fresh breath you already know how incredibly effective the BLIS K12 Probiotic ingredient is for reducing bad breath and improving overall oral cavity health. Now, our TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics blend the proven effectiveness of BLIS K12 with the newly discovered strain of BLIS M18 in order to help your body resist tooth decay, plaque buildup, tooth staining, biofilm, ear ache, sore throats, sensitive teeth, and other oral and throat issues.

Together, these two beneficial bacteria help to provide your mouth with broad spectrum protection against many common oral and throat concerns. Best of all, using our new product is easy. You brush with the included Toothpaste, then simply mix a little package of TheraBreath Multi Symptom Probiotics with water. Then rinse and gargle. You do this every day for a week (twice on day one and twice on day seven) to attempt to colonize your oral cavity with beneficial bacteria. Once colonies are established, you should see the benefits of these remarkable probiotic bacteria rather quickly. You should expect fewer cavities, fresher breath, whiter teeth, reduction in gumand tooth sensitivity, and less frequent sore throat and ear ache incidents for those people who have a tendency to experience them. It may sound too good to be true but believe me it’s not. We’ve spent almost 10 years developing this break-through blend of Probiotics and have been successful way beyond our expectations. If you want to know more about the science behind the product, I encourage you to visit our PROBITIC RESEARCH PAGE or download our PROBIOTIC TREATMENT GUIDE and read more.

Aphrodisiacs Foods May Lead to Unromantic Breath

Monday, February 14th, 2011

Are you planning a romantic Valentine’s Day with your sweetie? A scrumptious dinner perhaps? There are a few foods that are well known to increase the libido, but may also serve up a side of bad breath. This doesn’t mean that you need to skip the aphrodisiacs for a plainer meal, just be aware of their possible links to unromantic breath and do you best to prevent it.

Oysters – a food at the top of the aphrodisiac list, oysters (and most shellfish) are known to have an unpleasant odor with it. While they taste divine, the smell may take remain in your mouth if you don’t take care to freshen your breath after your meal. The food particles may linger, resulting in halitosis.

Garlic and Figs – these foods that are known to increase sex drive have been linked to bad breath, as we have discussed in previous posts. Although they are very delicious touches to a dish, figs and garlic both have high levels of sulfur compounds, which commonly cause bad smelling breath. Bad breath itself is caused by volatile sulfur-producing compounds that thrive in an anaerobic environment – a dry mouth. Eating figs and garlic are really just adding more fuel to the fire of foul breath. A quick solution would be to chew a piece of TheraBreath Chewing Gum post-meal. It’s amazing how fast the garlicky smell is neutralized, as if you never enjoyed the garlic in the first place!

Foods That Will Help Bad Breath

Monday, March 15th, 2010

cinnamon bad breath

Some foods that are notorious for causing halitosis are garlic, onions, curry, fish and cheese.  Therefore, you’re going to want to freshen your mouth after eating these.  You also need to freshen your mouth once every 30-60 minutes until the breath offending-food is out of your bloodstream- sometimes this takes up to 24 hours!  It isn’t a good idea to brush your teeth that often, so trying some foods that banish halitosis may be just what the dentist ordered.

Foods that can fix bad breath:

1) Lemons- These are easy to find in restaurants, bars, etc.  Lemon-flavored candies can work as well as normal lemons, and are more easily portable.

2) Green garnishes (i.e. parsley, basil, and rosemary) - A garnish doesn’t always just serve as a decoration.  The meals that have garnish often have a lot of onions and garlic–thus needing a breath freshener afterward.  If you chew on a parsley’s sprigs, it releases breath-freshening oils. 

3)  Crisp and fresh foods like apples, firm pears, carrots, jicama are all high in fiber, plus chewing bumps up the productive of saliva (functions like a scrubbing rinse inside the oral cavity). 

4) Crunchy spices like anise, coriander, cardamom, and fennel seeds are available in many grocery stores.  Try getting these spices, mixing equal parts together in a covered bowl, and keep them around for mealtime.  If you chew on a few seeds here and there, enough oil should be released to freshen your breath after eating.  They taste good, as well.

5)  Mint sprigs/cinnamon sticks (cinnamon/mint gum, etc.)- These especially help against onion and garlic.  Cinnamon, with its essential oils, also helps kill various types of oral bacteria.  Gum without sugar is less likely to cause cavities and fuel the bad breath-causing bacteria. 

6) Berries/yogurt- Eat these foods to prevent bad breath…if you eat half of one cup of plain and sugarless yogurt twice a day, this can lower the levels of hydrogen sulfide in your mouth.  The same goes with berries, melons, oranges, and other foods high in Vitamin C- they help kill smelly bacteria in the oral cavity.  Try having a cup of fruit with yogurt twice a day, and this should help get rid of the bad breath.

Last but not least, practice good oral care, and this will decrease your “Real Age” as much as 6.4 years!

Brushing a Dog’s (or Cat’s) Teeth

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

brush dog's teeth

Does your dog have bad breath? Well, maybe you are not employing the use of proper oral hygiene. After all, us humans need to maintain a level of oral care so that we don’t have halitosis. Also, just like people, dogs and cats can get gum disease–and if a dog or cat’s gums are infected and abscessed, bacteria can enter the bloodstream, causing liver, kidney, and even heart malfunctions. So, what’s a good way to brush your best friend’s teeth?

Here are some tips for brushing your pet’s teeth:

#1 Start off slowly. Make sure to use a toothpaste formula that is specifically made for animals, since human toothpaste can give stomach upsets to animals. Have your pet lick the paste off of your finger, and you might need to try a few different flavors to find one that your pet likes.

#2 Once you can get toothpaste into the animal’s mouth, use a slight amount on your finger and run it across the dog or cat’s teeth. This might even take several days to get your pet to do this agreeably. Once your pet is fine with you doing this to its teeth, use a toothbrush (made for pets) and make small circles on the gum line. Don’t brush too hard!

#3 Be sure to cheer on your pet and express approval during this process. Afterward, you could also give your pet a treat, playtime, a walk, etc., so it will think of brushing as a positive moment.

#4 In order to practice proper oral hygiene with your pet, try to brush your pet’s teeth every day.

Here are some warning signs to look for in your pet’s mouth:

  1. Yellow or brown tartar, especially where the teeth and gums meet
  2. Red, swollen, bleeding, inflamed, tender, and/or receding gums
  3. Chronic halitosis
  4. Teeth that are chipped/broken
  5. Tooth resorption (especially common in cats)- a very painful condition in which the tooth dissolves
  6. A change in the animal’s diet, chewing habits and appetite can signify depression (along with pawing at the face/mouth).

Also, don’t forget to try this oral rinse for dogs and cats that helps prevent plaque and tartar buildup.  Be sure to practice good oral hygiene with your pet, so that the both of you can have great smiles!
