Probiotics can increase the good bacteria found in the mouth, whilst fighting the bad bacteria, which can lead to fresh breath and good oral health.
Probiotics are important to promote good health. From improving gut function, to alleviating skin conditions, boosting our immune system and supporting good oral health, probiotics have a wide range of therapeutic benefits that are vital to our wellbeing.
We hear so much about the benefits of probiotics for gut and immune health, I thought it would be good to bring to light the health benefits of probiotics for oral health, as we don't hear as much about it and they can really be beneficial in promoting good oral health and hygiene.
Poor oral health, mouth and gum diseases can be as a result of the changed microbiome in our mouths. The microbiome can change as a result of the pH being altered as a result of several different reasons, some of which include; Stress
• Consuming high sugar and processed foods.
• Probiotics can increase the good bacteria found in the mouth, whilst fighting the bad bacteria, which can lead to fresh breath and good oral health.
Henry Blooms have created Oral Fresh Probiotic Mints to freshen breath. It contains three different strains of probiotics which help to restore the balance of flora in the mouth. It helps to minimize bacteria that cause plaque in the mouth and also balances the pH. Peppermint and thyme are also found in this amazing formula, which also help to freshen breath. They are sweetened with xylitol, not sugar, so they will not decay your teeth.
If you are looking for a probiotic that is convenient that you can take with you on the go, this may be a good option to try. It is a chewable tablet with a delicious mint flavour. Great for people who want to improve their gut health, but don’t like swallowing capsules or don't want to mix a powder. Plus it has the added benefit of freshening your breath after a coffee, or meal.
Probiotic Mouth Wash
Unlike conventional mouthwashes which not only kill bad bacteria, but good bacteria as well, Henry Blooms have created a probiotic mouthwash that will help to protect the mouth and gums by restoring the balance of good and bad bacteria with a specific probiotic that is very beneficial for preventing against gum disease, plaque buildup and bad breath. They also have a toothpaste in their range which helps to combat bad breath and promote good oral health.
