The Mouth: A Gateway To Health
Everything that is applied to the body, including the manufactured chemicals of perfumes, toothpaste, and synthetic lotions, are absorbed into the bloodstream, cells, and organs whenever they are applied. This rate of absorption is even higher inside the mouth and its moist tissues where the skin wall, or epithelium, is only one cell thick. This is especially true if one has bleeding gums because anything in the mouth will have direct access to the bloodstream.
Healthy gums provide a natural barrier against the 400-plus microorganisms entering the circulatory system. The epithelium (the very thin skin inside your mouth) is only one cell thick and is designed to keep toxins, bacteria, and infection from entering the body. The soft oral tissues are great at absorbing whatever comes into contact them, with approximately 90% absorption efficiency, the tiniest break or cut in the epithelium (bleeding gums) allows toxins and bacteria to enter the bloodstream quite quickly.
The middle of the tooth is a pulp cavity and it contains nerve endings and blood vessels. Under the gum line is cementum. Cementum keeps the tooth attached to gums and jaw bone held with collagen fibers.
Teeth are "alive" similar to the crystalline calcium make up of coral reefs. The mouth's salvia acts like an oceanic sea of alkalinity. Acidity strips the teeth of enamel making the teeth more vulnerable to bacteria. Unhealthy bacteria are the cause gingivitis, inflammation, periodontitis and decay.
This deeply penetrating formula contains amazing lipophilic properties that facilitates diffusion through the epithelium to nourish the cells by promoting circulation to the gum tissue, dentin and blood vessels within our teeth.
Mouth Math: acid + bacteria = inflammation = plaque = tartar = bleeding = sensitivity = decay = receding gums = exposed dentin = decay = lower immunity for overall health.
Why Not Choose A Regular Toothpaste?
“Minty fresh” is a marketing promise we all know. Common toothpaste feels refreshing because it contains synthetic mint (menthol) or other flavor by-products such as cinnamon (cinnamaldehyde). These are not the real plant essences; they are synthetic derivatives. Foaming chemicals in your mouth while you are brushing your teeth do not create optimal oral ecology. Regular toothpaste gives an illusion of freshness, yet it does not really remove plaque, it is the actual brushing that does that.
The chemicals used in commercial toothpaste, including many of the brands sold in health food stores, include chemicals that you do not want in your mouth, such as glycerin, which coats the teeth and blocks the saliva from doing its primary job of re-mineralizing the enamel. You will also find calcium carbonate, which is essentially chalk that is not at all good for teeth. Also, what paste would be complete without the detergent and surfactant sodium lauryl sulfate, which makes toothpaste foamy? This known carcinogen breaks down your skin's natural barrier, easily penetrates skin, causing bleeding gums. This allows other chemicals to penetrate by increasing skin permeability approximately 100-fold. Additionally, when combined with other chemicals, it transforms into carcinogenic nitrates and can reside in the body for five days.
Some toothpastes also contain propylene glycol, also known as anti-freeze, which is not to be handled without gloves in a lab. Then there’s the FD&C color pigments (including coal tar derivatives that contain heavy metals and accumulate in the body), formaldehyde, Triclosan (a registered pesticide and bio-persistent chemical that destroys fragile aquatic ecosystems), artificial sweeteners, and synthetic isopropyl alcohol.
You may also be surprised to learn that ethanol is the primary ingredient in most mouthwashes, even though it is known to cause approximately 36,000 cases of oral disease a year! How is it possible that carcinogens could help keep your mouth healthy? Yet when people find that they have breath or gum problems, one of the first things they do is go out and get a new brand of toothpaste and a big bottle of ethanol-based mouthwash.
Why Use Essential Oils To Cleanse The Mouth?
Essential oils are extremely potent, often hundreds of times stronger than the herbal extraction of the same plant. Each oil has hundreds of botanical chemical components that work synergistically. Genuine distillations of plants, flowers, seeds, roots, and trees have been used medicinally for centuries. Each one of the botanical species in these formulas is carefully selected by Nadine Artemis for their individual and synergistic effects that improve and maintain gum and oral health. The combination of antiseptic, astringent, circulatory and analgesic botanicals create optimal molecular activity.
The Essential Oils In The Longevity Warehouse Healthy Gum Drops:
Cinnamon, Cinnamomum ceylanicum: This true cinnamon bark essential oil from Madagascar is antiseptic and antibacterial. It stimulates blood circulation to the gums and promotes their health and regeneration. Cinnamon is high in the compounds eugenol and cineol, both of which have potent anesthetic and antiseptic properties that increase the production of white blood cells. According to the work of Dr. Franchomme and Dr. Pènoel, cinnamon bark oil is effective against 98% of all pathogenic bacteria.
Clove Bud, Eugenia carophyllata: An analgesic essential oil from the flowering buds of the clove tree with an extremely high ORAC. Clove has relieved toothaches and freshened breath since ancient times. A potent antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal, clove boosts the immune system and stimulates blood flow with its botanical constituents of eugenol, esters, and sesquiterpenes, all of which combine to create an essence with an impressive action against pathogens and microbes. It is known to be antiparasitic and to help gum infections, toothaches and tonsillitis.
Oregano, Origanum vulgare: Wild oregano oil from the mountains of the Mediterranean, has a bounty of botanical benefits with a broad spectrum of antibacterial, antifungal, anti-parasitic, anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory action. Wild oregano contains two phenol compounds (in the following concentrations) that contribute to its medicinal applications: carvacrol at over 65% and thymol at 3.4%. These phenols possess potent antiseptic, analgesic, and antibacterial properties. Dr. Gerald Smith, DDS, explains, “Basically, oregano works like an antibiotic,” boosting the immune system. Many studies show that oregano has a broad range of antimicrobial activities and works against fungus, virus, and bacteria, including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruglinosa. Wild oil of oregano in oral applications can also improve dental hygiene as it destroys plaque-causing bacteria and reduces risks of gum disease.
Peppermint, Mentha piperita: Peppermint helps with digestion and has an analgesic and cooling anti-inflammatory effect. This peppermint is a genuine distillation of the fresh leaves and comes from a fourth generation family of distillers in France. It is important to understand that the peppermint flavouring in commercial toothpaste is artificial menthol and offers no benefit in preventing gingivitis. Real peppermint is a potent anti-oxidant and inhibits the bacterium that causes tooth decay.
Rose Otto, Rosa damascena: An elegant and precious essence. It takes sixty roses to make one drop of Rose Otto essential oil! One of the most medicinally valued extracts, it adds resiliency and elasticity to the gum tissue. It is an effective analgesic and is vulnerary, meaning that it speeds up the healing of tissues with its potent antiviral and antiseptic properties. It is great for cold sores and cankers. Rose Otto also has the ability to regenerate connective tissues and tonify the gums.
Seabuckthorn Berry, Hippophae rhamnoides: An incredibly rich and vital oil; extracted from a berry, it is perfectly balanced in omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 oils. Our seabuckthorn berry is a special super critical extract that is able to capture over 190 bioactive substances from the edible berry. The oil is also potent in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory beta carotene, carotenoids, and phytosterols that reduce redness and help heal mucous membranes. The oil regenerates cells, protects against cell water loss, and is rich in vitamins C, E, and provitamins A and B’s. Seabuckthorn Berry is rich in lipids, beneficial fatty acids, and rare palmitoleic acids. All of these extraordinary plant properties contribute to regenerate and revitalize connective and gingival tissue.
Tea Tree Oil, Malaleuca alternifolia: From the paper bark tea tree, has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal plant by the Australian Aborigines. Tea tree oil has anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties. It is known to be a therapeutic agent in fighting chronic gingivitis and periodontitis, conditions that have both bacterial and inflammatory components. Tea tree is very high in natural anti-inflammatory agents and contains the plant-chemicals cineol and propanol, both kinds of natural chemicals that can decrease gingivitis and reduce plaque. Tea tree also helps stop the approach of bacteria and is very astringent and antiseptic. In a scientific dental study, a genuine distillation of tea tree oil (2.5%) proved effective in the treatment of chronic of gingivitis and inflammation. High in natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial constituents of 1.8 –cineol, terpinen-4-ol, tea tree essential oil decreased the level of gingival teeth and reduced plaque scores in the study. Furthermore, the study showed that a total of 162 oral bacteria isolates (including streptococcus) were inhibited and rapidly destroyed by tea tree oil concentrations of less than 2%. The Healthy Gum Drops formula contains more than 2% of this astringent and antiseptic essence.
Thyme Linalool, Thymus officinalis linalool: A rare variety of the thyme species. It is both antiseptic and gentle. Thyme Linalool balances oral salivary secretions, stimulates the immune system, and acts as a decongestant. Overall, it is a tonifying and effective immuno-stimulant with anti-bacterial agents.
Each one of the botanical species in this formula is carefully selected by Nadine Artemis for their individual and synergistic effects that improve and maintain gum and oral health. The combination of antiseptic, astringent, circulatory, and analgesic botanicals create optiomal molecular activity.
