You don’t need us to tell you how important it is to brush your teeth regularly. It’s been drilled into us since a young age that we must brush our teeth morning and night if we want to keep our pearly whites glistening, our gums healthy, and our breath smelling fresh.
The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice a day and diligently flossing daily to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, which will help you avoid the buildup of plaque and tartar.
But while the regularity of your teeth-brushing routine is unquestionably important, what you brush your teeth with is the most important factor of all.
The ingredients you use to scrub your teeth with every day are absolutely crucial to tackling gum disease. Do you know that many of the ingredients in conventional kinds of toothpaste actually exacerbate gum disease?
As we explain in our article, “Toxic Ingredients in Your Toothpaste”, over 80% of American adults suffer from gum disease. To us, it’s pretty obvious that what people are using to brush their teeth isn’t working.
Your mouth is one of the most absorbent parts of your body
Every time you brush your teeth, the ingredients in your toothpaste enter your bloodstream through your mouth and gums and are transported to the rest of your body.
We recommend that you read our article, “Toxic Ingredients in Your Toothpaste,” to see if your toothpaste contains any of the harmful toxins and chemicals we have listed. And if it does, we strongly recommend searching for a natural alternative.
Good-Gums tooth and gum powder is 100% natural and free from all the nasty stuff
As we mentioned before, our gums are very sensitive and are some of the most absorptive tissues in the body, so it is important that we feed them with vitamins and nutrients that help our cells repair and regenerate and aid the body’s natural healing process.
Good-Gums all-natural tooth & gum formula is free from all chemicals, toxins, GMOs, fluoride, carrageenan, SLS, parabens, triclosan, artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, propylene glycol, SLS, SLES, glycerin, or synthetics of any kind. Good-gums is also 100% cruelty-free and vegan and is completely safe to ingest
Our intention here at Good-Gums is to wake people up to their own ability to self-heal. And it is our desire that by using a product that works with nature and with the body’s natural ability to heal itself, people will benefit from their body’s own intelligence that, given the chance, can heal itself from almost any ailment.
Good-Gums is kind to your teeth and gums AND to the Earth
We began as a small sustainable, grassroots company, which is now growing in reputation and momentum as we continue to help more and more people around the world heal their gum problems. Our desire is to show people that it is possible to heal their gums naturally and that they do not need to struggle with deteriorating oral health and lose thousands of dollars to avoidable restorative dental work.
We try to avoid harming the Earth and all its living inhabitants, which means avoiding even the slightest trace of toxins or pollution from the production of Good-Gums. We select our contract manufacturing facility whose practices parallel our intentions and produce all raw materials and packaging in ways that are less polluting and more sustainable. We don’t see this as something that we have (or will have) accomplished once and for all, but as something for us to keep working on.
For now we can say that:
- Good Gums contains no artificial colors, flavors or any other artificial ingredients.
- It’s antibiotic-free, hormone-free and fluoride-free.
- The box is made from 100% recycled fiber.
- The manufacturing plant is cGMP compliant.
- Good Gums is not tested on animals.
- The bottle we use (HDPE with Plastic Identification Code 2) does not contain (and therefore cannot leach) Bisphenol-A (BPA), an estrogen mimic that’s common to some other kinds of plastic.
Even most healthy kinds of toothpaste from natural stores aren’t actually the best natural alternatives, as they contain a humectant called glycerin that forms an invisible coating on your teeth and gums that prevents your body’s natural healing.
As Dr. Gerard Judd, Ph. D points out, “teeth brushed with any toothpaste are coated with a film and cannot properly remineralize”.
If you really care about your oral health, you need to consider giving up toothpaste altogether.
“You gotta give up the paste if you want to cure your tooth and gum problems”
– Isabelle Dunkeson, creator of Good-Gums
Not only will your choice to give up toothpaste significantly improve the health of your teeth and gums, but you will also be doing the planet we live on a huge favor too.
