Research conducted by the Human Microbiome Project, shows the conventional approach to toothpaste formulation (harsh chemicals with antimicrobial agents) is not only ineffectual but harmful. The traditional formulation of toothpaste has resulted in sub-par efficacy, as products looking to kill bacteria or destroy plaque fail to create a sustainable, healthy oral environment. This “pesticide” approach to oral care results in an environment that is more susceptible to disease.
Until the development of Revitin®, there has been no significant positive innovation in toothpaste for over 60 years. New research has dramatically changed our understanding of oral care and its relationship to systemic diseases. Yet, current manufacturers have failed to modify their outdated approaches. As a result of the outdated formulation of toothpaste and the use of harsh chemicals with antimicrobial agents, half of the American adult population suffers from periodontal disease (gum disease).
Many studies have linked periodontal disease to increased risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and problematic pregnancies. Recent evidence shows a relationship between periodontal disease and pneumonia, chronic kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cognitive impairment, and cancer. Unfortunately, not enough people know the risk of using commercial toothpaste brands loaded with harsh chemicals. Revitin® and its prebiotic formulation is the natural solution!
