What's In Your Toothpaste?
Is brushing your teeth a good thing? Absolutely, but the quality of your toothpaste is extremely important if you want to maximize your oral health and, by extension, your whole body health. Have you ever looked at the ingredients in commercial pastes or even some so-called “healthy” pastes? You will often see glycerin, sodium lauryl sulfate, FD&C colors, fluoride, carageenan, artificial flavors, and artificial sweeteners like saccharin. Most commercial toothpastes use as least ten different harmful ingredients. These are readily absorbed through the oral mucous membranes and may pose a risk to your future health. When my customers ask me what they should look for in a great toothpaste, I tell them it should contain no harmful ingredients (don’t use anything you should not swallow!).
Pam’s Touch Organic Pearl Teethpaste makes brushing the teeth a really good thing. It does not coat the teeth with glycerin. It does not contain harmful chemicals that cause neurotoxicity or that have been linked to cancer. It polishes the teeth without removing enamel. It gently disinfects the mouth. And it tastes great!
