How To Protect Your Mouth From Disease - Good Bacteria (click above to learn more)
Getting To The Real Cause Of Your Tooth Decay & Gum Disease
We have all heard by now about our immune system, 70% of which is in our colon, being composed of bacteria, both 'good' and 'bad'. If we encourage a plentiful and majority supply of 'good' bacteria, we produce and experience a healthy environment in our digestive system, that transmits to our entire body, producing a feeling of wellness, or 'ease'. When the opposite happens, the 'bad guys' are winning and we feel ill, falling under a state of 'dis-ease'.
It has been known since the early 1920s that bad bacteria in the mouth, such as Streptococcus mutans, not only attaches itself to teeth but also loves to react with sugars in the diet, to produce acid that carved holes in tooth enamel! Unfortunately, the primitive research at the time could not realize that it was also getting help from other microbial cells in the mouth.
Luckily today, scientists are able to determine which microbes perform what functions within our oral environment and are starting to fundamentally change the long-held views about how oral microbes contribute to not only our dental health, but overall health also.
Innovative ways to leverage the 'good bacteria' in your mouth are now available, with the promise of more to come soon. Part of this innovative drive includes just such a 'good bacteria' populating product that has our endorsement.
How Oral Bacteria Can Promote General Health
1 Some microbes in the mouth, such as Streptococcus salivarius, have the ability to fight inflammation
2 The 'by-product' associated with the metabolism of these bacteria, assists in the killing of oral pathogens constantly entering into the mouth.
3 Regulation of the mouth's acidity levels, for example by converting arginine or urea that enters the mouth, into pH balancing ammonia.
4 Convert nitrate into nitrite, which then in turn becomes nitric oxide, which helps in blood pressure regulation.
As you may know, two of the biggest threats to general wellbeing for anyone, is excessive acidity and inflammation, which is almost always the result of, yes that's right, acidity.
