On the surface, who can get excited about a toothpaste?
Well...once you know what's happening in your mouth and about the "bad stuff"
most of us are using now to brush our teeth, you'll be happy to know about
Thieves Dentarome toothpaste,
a new product soon to be released by
Young Living Essential Oils, Inc.
Probably one of the most startling bits of information on commercial toothpastes
is what goes into their formulation. Three ingredients, Sodium fluoride, Sorbitol
and Sodium lauryl sulfate are the man-made chemicals in toothpaste that should
give cause for concern.
SLS Toxicity Facts
Sodium fluoride is an active ingredient in most toothpastes which can place people
at health risk if not carefully watched. By law, the concentration of Sodium fluoride
cannot exceed 1000 ppm for adult and 500 ppm for children. if the concentration is
higher than 1000 ppm, it might cause poison; and the fluoride ion might react with
calcium ion and magnesium ion in the human body and cause low level calcium ion and
magnesium ion in blood.
In some cases Sodium fluoride has caused heart and muscle problems. In some reports,
it says: "If a child was to take a big spoonful of this fluoride and did get it down,
it is poisonous and the child could die."
The ingredient Sorbitol is a liquid that keeps toothpaste from drying out, and Sodium lauryl
sulfate is an ingredient that makes toothpaste foam. However, both of them could be a laxative
and cause diarrhea if they have been swallowed.
Most people are unaware of the new toothpaste labeling that will be seen soon on the
boxes and back of tubes of toothpaste. Consumers will see nearly twice the warnings
displayed. The new warning label required by the FDA starts with: Keep out of reach
of children under 6 years of age." Obviously, commercial toothpastes are not as safe
as we would think they are. If you have young children now using a commercial paste
containing Sodium sulfate, they are at risk.
Thieves Dentarome Toothpaste...
As you would expect from Young Living, all of the ingredients in Thieves toothpaste are from
natural sources. And best of all, the active ingredient is the essential oil blend - Thieves.
Other ingredients include Colloidal Silver, ionic mineral, birch and Stevia.
Spearmint is also used for flavoring.
The constituents of essential oils in Thieves, thymol, eugenol and eucalyptal are documented
to be antibacterial. These ingredients have retarded the development of plaque and reduced
the severity of gingivitis and cavity. There is no research reporting side effects.
In controlled experiments, Thieves toothpaste was effective against 6 different common organisms
that can cause oral infections, such as dental caries and periodontal diseases; Streptococcus
oralis, Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus pneumoniae,Streptococci sanguis, Bramunella
catarrhalis and Candida albicans.
As more toothpaste is used, stronger antimicrobial is shown. Just 3 mg. shows very high antimicrobial
ability. No one, not even the toothpaste giant, Crest, can make this kind of claim. This makes Thieves
Dentarome Toothpaste far advanced of anything now on the market. Normal amount per use is 3 grams.
Given an informed choice, people want a toothpaste that is safe and preventative.
Young Living's Thieves Toothpaste is destined to become one of their most popular products.

"Dentarome is an amazing toothpaste.
teeth-cleansing and plaque-opposing properties of this
formula are phenomenal.
It is also very rare to see a
toothpaste devoid of synthetic or carcinogenic ingredients
like sodium lauryl sulfate, carregeenin and artificial colors."
