Did you know Digestion and Absorption Begin in Your Mouth?
You might not pay much attention to the ingredients in your toothpaste or mouthwash because brushing or swishing or gargling doesn’t feel as impactful to your health as what you eat or drink. After all, you spit it out!
But digestion and absorption begin in your mouth.
According to The Cornucopia Institute’s research, “When potentially toxic chemical ingredients are present in toothpaste and mouthwash, they are likely to pass directly and quickly into the bloodstream, even if the toothpaste is not swallowed. This is because the membrane lining of the mouth has an absorption efficiency of more than 90%, according to the Physician’s Desk Reference Handbook.”
Carcinogens, endocrine disrupters, allergens, irritants, and other toxic chemicals may all be found in kinds of toothpaste and other oral health products, even in those marked as “natural.”
That’s why it’s so important to make sure all your dental care products are chemical-free.
The chemical-free way to keep your teeth and gums healthy, strong and bright.
To replace your toothpaste, we recommend Tooth Soap®
Tooth Soap cleans your teeth and gums thoroughly, and deep cleans fissures and pits in teeth (the most common place for cavities). Daily brushing removes oils, residue, and other contaminants from your teeth so that your healthy pH balanced saliva can re-mineralize your teeth. Strong teeth are more resistant to decay and are not sensitive.
The coconut oil in Tooth Soap is as effective in fighting tooth decay and cavities as popular toothpastes that contain harsh chemicals. A randomized, controlled study published in 2016 found that coconut oil was as effective in reducing harmful bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) as chlorohexidine. In February 2017, the FDA warned that rare but serious allergic reactions have been reported with products containing chlorohexidine.

5 Naturally Stimulating Tooth Soap® Flavors to Choose From

Because there are absolutely no preservatives, Tooth Soap tastes best if used within 3 months of opening. All batches are made small to ensure you are getting a fresh product.
To help whiten your teeth,
we recommend Tooth Brightener®
A bright smile shouldn’t be dangerous!
But do you really want bleach (carbamide or hydrogen peroxide) in your mouth? Popular toothpastes rely on abrasives to scrub stains from your tooth surface, including silica, aluminum oxide, calcium phosphates, or calcium carbonate.
Plus, most peroxide-containing whiteners come in a gel that also contains glycerin and carbopol as thickeners and, in some cases, flavoring agents. Stannate and pyrophosphate salts are often added to scavenge metals and prevent peroxide decomposition while the gel is still on the store shelf.
Ingredients: Tooth Brightener contains only whole food calcium/magnesium and bicarbonate of soda. Go natural and still go white!
✓ Made with whole foods and completely non-toxic.
✓ No flavors or fillers.
✓ No need for a warning label!
✓ Not tested on animals.
✓ Made in the U.S.A.
To freshen your breath, or for those who can’t brush regularly, we recommend Tooth Swish™
Mouthwash helps your mouth feel fresh. Most over-the-counter mouthwash does this by including ingredients that kill bacteria in your mouth. Similar to antibiotics that kill the good, healthful bacteria in your gut, mouthwash slays every type of bacteria. Researchers are beginning to discover that this can be potentially dangerous.
According to a study published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine, using a mouthwash twice daily — that contains harsh chemicals such as Chlorhexidine — may increase blood pressure up to 3.5 millimeters of mercury (mmHg), raising your heart attack risk. That’s because it’s killing off good bacteria that helps your blood vessels relax, increasing the risk of heart attack.
Made with Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, a pinch of Tooth Swish powder safely helps neutralize food acids, promotes salivation and re-mineralizes your teeth. The 84 ionic/colloidal minerals and trace elements found only in Original Himalayan Crystal Salt stimulate your gums, help balance pH, and freshen your breath.
Ingredients: Tooth Swish contains only Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, whole food calcium/magnesium, bicarb of soda and essential oil.
