Spring Is Here: New Products, New Stores, New Studies!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

First of all, we’re proud to announce the following:

An article in the UK’s Daily Mail last week about bad breath entitled “How Mouthwash Can Give You Bad Breath and Stain Your Teeth” mentioned many of the studies I’ve been telling you about over the years including the study from the Australian Dental Society linking alcohol in mouthwash to oral cancer.

What was surprising in this article is that they finally corroborated what I’ve been saying about the dangers of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (the detergent everyone uses in toothpaste — except TheraBreath). Specifically, it says:

“Alcohol based mouthwash has also been linked to an increase risk in oral cancer. Scientists in a study published in The Dental Journal of Australia in 2009 reported that the alcohol in mouthwash allowed cancer causing substances to permeate the lining of the mouth more easily. Some ingredients in toothpaste such as the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate can interact with the fluoride in mouthwash and deactivate it so that it loses its effect.”

So as you can see, it literally washes away tons of good stuff, including the fluoride if you’ve previously rinsed with a fluoride mouthwash!

I knew from day 1, that Sodium Lauryl Sulfate was bad news, but the good news is that TheraBreath Toothpaste is and always has been Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and alcohol free! So make sure to visit one of the NEW stores listed above (or click here to find more stores near you), and if you don’t find TheraBreath products on the shelf at any of the stores above, please do me a favor and go talk to the store manager and ask them why not!

To celebrate the new retailers, new products at our current retailers, and the fact that TheraBreath toothpaste does everything we promise it will do, here are some coupons that you can use at any of these stores.

Yours in good oral health,

Personal Trainers Deal with Bad Breath on a Daily Basis

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Most people don’t LOVE to go to the gym. It’s something we do to keep physically fit or burn off some steam. We’re so focused on working out our bodies, but do we think about whether or not we have fresh breath on our minds while we hit the treadmill? Well, according to the Phoenix New Times, bad breath is something we should be mindful of at the gym, especially if you work with a personal trainer.

Personal trainers have a list of irks when it comes to dealing with clients at the gym. Vanity, lack of commitment, constant complaints definitely are worth noting, but halitosis tops the list of the most annoying problems in working with clients according to a recent article by the Phoenix New Times.

Exercising or physical exertion of any kind involves a lot of body odors. A healthy sweat contains fats and hormones that combine to sometimes cause a sour, unpleasant smell.  Perspiration also contains propionic acid, according to Medical News Today. This is a compound that the nose registers as a vinegar-like smell – definitely not something you want to breathe in while you’re trying to burn off those extra pounds.

Wow, I just found out that Walgreens is having an AMAZING special on Probiotics…. but only until this Saturday, so you must HURRY!

Yesterday I posted an article all about the benefits of my new TheraBreath Multi-Symptom Probiotics, however I just stopped by my local Walgreens last night, and I discovered that they are having an AMAZING special right now!

TheraBreath Multi-Symptom Probiotics are usually sold at Walgreens for anywhere from $25 – $28, however right now, they are on sale for only $19.99, PLUS you get a $10 “same as cash” coupon you can use for anything else you buy at Walgreens. This means that you can pickup a box of TheraBreath Multi-Symptom Probiotics for only $9.99!

However here’s the catch – it looks like this special is only good for TWO MORE DAYS (until this Saturday), so you’ll need to hurry…. so stop by your local Walgreens an pickup a box of my new TheraBreath Multi-Symptom Probiotics at a HUGE discount. But do it soon as the last day to receive this discount is Saturday, April 9th.

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!
