Being a dental hygienist for over 20 years, I’ve seen my share of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums but periodontal disease is the disease of the bone that is holding your teeth in place. If you lose your bone, you lose your teeth! Because this disease does not hurt till the last stage, it is difficult to get people to understand the importance of their oral health. If you have a disease ANYWHERE in your body, you have systemic disease. Specifically, gum disease causes heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, blood clots, Alzheimer’s, dementia, colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer. Throughout the years, I would see patients comply with dental treatment for the periodontal disease, only to have short windows of remission. This is because periodontal disease is not just an oral hygiene issue, but a systemic one. That’s why I created a power packed combination of scientifically proven ingredients that will help your body to fight off this disease. If you give your body what it needs, it always tries to heal itself.
If you have gum disease, it is scientifically proven that you are actually lacking CoQ10 in your body. According to a government study, CoQ10 may possibly be effective as a topical and/ or adjunctive treatment for periodontitis especially when used in conjunction with other vitamins. 1 This is because CoQ10 helps your body fight off periodontal disease on a MICRO-cellular level and it helps your body repair gum tissue. CoQ10 is also essential for heart health and if you are taking a statin drug, you need to be supplementing it back in to your body.
Another overlooked root cause of periodontal disease is the lack of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant as it aids in the regeneration of bone tissue and the repair of connective tissues. This is believed to be the result of improved collagen production (the same reason vitamin C helps skin stay youthful). Additionally, this powerful nutrient has been proven to improve the resistance of gingival tissue from being penetrated by disease-causing bacteria.
Pomegranate is also a highly powerful antioxidant that aides in reducing your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease due to its antibacterial qualities.
Vitamins A & D and a proper diet and nutrition, are essential to maintaining a healthy gut microbiome balance, which contributes to a healthy immune system, and bone homeostasis (the process where old bone is replaced by new bone tissue). Ultimately, vitamin D plays a crucial role in all three of these factors and in preventing gum disease. Without enough Vitamin D, your body will leach calcium out of your bones. Probiotics are also necessary for gut health and overall immune support.
B complex is essential for healthy gums as it helps aid in the wound healing process and to regenerate new tissue.
Lastly, Perio Pack contains DHA/EPA because this is a wonderful support not only to your cardiovascular and circulatory health but according to the Journal of Dental Health, DHA supplementation was associated with decreased pocket depths between the tooth and gum.
For best results with Perio Pack, use with Simply Silver Mouthwash, Toothpaste and Breath Spray for overall improvement.
