The Frugal Fun Family has written a great TheraBreath review and is also hosting a giveaway.

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.

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.”

Colleen, the owner of Finding our way home opens up about her daughter Kennedy in her TheraBreath review and giveaway. “I mostly wanted to try the TheraBreath brand with Kennedy.  Kennedy does not eat anything by mouth anymore and gets very bad breath.  She has a hard time with toothpastes because they get so foamy and that makes her anxious as she is afraid of swallowing it and can not spit it out.  In the past I have been using a mouthwash on her toothbrush but it never has really taken care of the bad breath.  Plus so many are so strong of flavors (even the children’s) that I have to dilute them.” Find out if we were able to help Kennedy by reading the entire post here. Colleen is always hosting a giveaway so head over to Finding our way home to enter their TheraBreath giveaway too.

EPA Calls for Reduction in Fluoride in Drinking Water

Monday, March 7th, 2011

For decades, fluoride has been added to drinking water helping to prevent cavities and fight halitosis and tooth decay in the United States. Recently the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have officially stated that only the minimum requirements of fluoride should be added to drinking water, reducing the current amount.

Along with our water supply, fluoride is found in many oral care products. According to the EPA, fluoride is used to prevent tooth decay by slowing the loss of tooth enamel. Just a small amount between 0.7 and 1.2 milligrams is effective. The EPA and HHS are now suggesting the acceptable level of fluoride in drinking water should be at the minimum of 0.7 milligrams per liter.

The reason for this change is the increasing amount of fluoride that is available through dental cleanings, oral care products such as toothpaste, and tap water.

One of the results of tooth decay is bad breath. When halitosis is prevalent, fluoride in drinking water may do little to help with curing bad breath. While it is important to be hydrated to avoid dry mouth, maintaining a healthy oral care routine is very important. TheraBreath products are guaranteed to stop bad breath. After all, if just drinking water eliminated bad breath and cavities, dentists would be out of business!

Also consider trying an oral care probiotic that can help your body’s ability to resist cavities, sore throats, ear infections, tonsil stones, bad breath and more.
