Why is there a probiotic in my Gem toothpaste?
Billions of bacteria occur within the human digestive system. They perform crucial functions that are essential to a healthy body. The need for healthy bacteria is not limited to your gut, it is also extremely important to have a healthy microbial environment in your mouth.
Probiotics are good bacteria that perform certain functions depending on the strain. The probiotic in Gem is specific to the mouth, and is called Lactobacillus Lysate derived from Lactobacillus Salivarius; it specialises in maintaining a healthy oral microbiome balance.
We are constantly introducing different foods into mouths and with that comes potentially damaging bacteria left behind. Cavities and tooth decay are a direct result of acid produced by bacteria. Regular cleaning with Gem will not only remove the bad bacteria but can help to tip the balance back in our favour, by depositing the good probiotics back in the mouth.
The probiotics in Gem deposit onto the teeth during the brushing process, preventing the bad, acid-producing bacteria from getting a hold, leaving a healthier mouth throughout the day.
What are the active ingredients that work?
Our main active ingredients to fight tooth decay and prevent cavities are a unique combination of hydroxyapatite and calcium – the same material as our natural tooth enamel.
Restoration is achieved using an organic approach, with the main components remineralising the teeth’s enamel. This leads to an improvement in the tooth hardness, whiteness and a smoother surface.
Hydroxyapatite has been proven to remineralise and restore tooth enamel in a safe and effective way, read more here (link to research paper).
Does Gem contain artificial colouring or flavourings?
Gem is naturally coloured by its functional ingredients. We avoid the likes of titanium dioxide and other colouring agents.The fresh mint flavour comes from a natural peppermint oil, nothing artificial.
Does Gem help remove surface stains?
You bet! Gem contains specialised silica, with a natural origin. The particle size and shape have been specifically selected to provide the right amount of cleaning to effectively remove surface stains from teeth, without damaging the enamel. The remineralisation effect of the Hydroxyapatite further improves the colouring and smoothness of the tooth’s surface.
