BLIS Probiotics Treat Bad Breath with an Army of Healthy Bacteria

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

If you’ve been wondering about the future of bad breath treatment, then look no further than TheraBreath’s BLIS Probiotics. These cutting-edge halitosis
therapies do what no other breath freshener can, which is to naturally limit your mouth’s ability to produce bad breath.

How do they do it? The key is a pair of carefully cultivated microbial strains that  gradually force odor-causing bacteria out of your mouth. This makes our probiotics the next generation in halitosis-fighting technology.

Here’s how it works.

Your mouth is brimming with bacteria, many of which are essentially harmless. According to the latest scientific estimates, you have more than 600 different species of microorganisms in your mouth, accounting for billions of individual bacteria.

A few of these species are real stinkers. Called anaerobic bacteria, they thrive in a
relatively dry environment. When your mouth gets parched, these microbes go to
town on the food particles on your tongue and between your teeth. They emit the
odor molecules that give halitosis its bad smell, and they also contribute to cavities and gum disease.

Here’s where BLIS Probiotics come in handy. Our probiotics products contain two healthy strains of bacteria, called Streptococcus salivarius M12 and K18. These species do two things that naturally limit your bad breath.

All Natural Oral Care Products May Be Best for Children

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Many toothpastes and mouthwashes at the drug store often contain dyes to give them their bright and attractive colors. It’s a great marketing tactic. However, HealthDay News reports that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold a panel of healthcare experts to determine whether or not these dyes are linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

As many parents know, there are many cases of ADHD in the US. Almost 10 percent of children from age 4 to 17 have been diagnosed with this disease, according to estimates done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s about 5.4 million American children and teens!

There currently is not a clear connection established between food dyes and ADHD, however many experts have already commented saying they do suspect a connection. David Schaub, a psychiatric researcher, professor at Columbia University and FDA panel member told HealthDay News that the upcoming discussion is a “big step forward.”

While the link is still unsure, why risk it? As you probably already know, all of TheraBreath products are free of artificial dyes and preservatives. It’s also important to steer clear of alcohol, sugar and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS).  Just click on the links if you want to learn more.

Did You Know TheraBreath Products are Gluten Free?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

As you may already know, here at TheraBreath, we’re big believers on being aware of the ingredients in your toothpastes, mouthwashes, gums, sprays and more. After all, these are thing that are going in your mouth! Many of our Mommy Bloggers also are mindful of what harmful ingredients are not in our products. Some ingredients you want to steer clear of are alcohol (which can cause dry mouth), sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) (which might cause canker sores) and sugar (which can lead to tooth decay and cavities). As we mentioned in a previous post, alcohol in mouthwash has been linked to an increased risk of oral cancer, so it’s definitely something you want to avoid.

But did you know that all of our products are gluten free? Yes that’s right, so if you are worried about gluten or perhaps have Celiac disease our products are perfect for you! In addition to being the #1 selling premium oral care brand, many if not all of our products are: vegan, certified Kosher, not tested on animals, made with natural ingredients, approved for diabetics and the packaging is recyclable.

So here’s a handy tip when shopping on TheraBreath.com: all of our products have badges associated with them (see image) under the product image. Simply click on a badge to learn more about what each one means. And stay tuned because we have more categories coming.

We applaud you in being a conscious consumers and hope you find this tip helpful.

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,

Harold Katz, DDS

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.
