Keeping saliva alkaline is essential for healthy mineralized enamel. This alkalinizing polish is made with neem, cinnamon, peppermint, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba, soapwort and spring water.
Use only tiny ONE drop on a dry toothbrush.
This special formula will leave your teeth feeling smooth and further allow minerals, enzymes and nutrients in your saliva to re-mineralize the enamel. Include a drop of Yogi Tooth Serum, Healthy Gum Drops and/or a pinch of baking soda for even more anti-bacterial FUN!
The Neem Enamelizer is different in function/results than Yogi Tooth Serum and Healthy Gum Drops. The Neem Enamelizer is for the brushing stage only. Yogi Tooth Serum and/or Healthy Gum Drops is for many phases of oral care (brushing, flossing, massaging gums, abscess, post-dentistry).
Then floss with Yogi Tooth Serum or Healthy Gum Drops.
Healthy teeth exist in a sea of saliva, a sea of saline alkalinity. Imagine that your mouth is a coral reef in which your teeth are the coral, surrounded by an ocean of alkalinity. When your teeth are lubricated in healthy saliva, they are at their absolute healthiest. In this state, you can heal a lot of decay and prevent new decay from occurring.
Your saliva is extremely important to the functioning of your mouth. It contains many chemicals and enzymes that exist specifically to take care of the teeth, and it is designed to bathe the teeth all day long in a solution that has a pH of approximately 7. This is exactly what your teeth and gums need. Saliva can re-mineralize or de-mineralize teeth. It controls bacterial flora in the mouth, prepares food for digestion, and produces certain vital hormones. If saliva is too acid, it dissolves the enamel on your teeth and creates an environment that houses bacteria. The longer the mouth remains acidic the more damage is done to the enamel. Weak, porous enamel and acidic gum tissue create sensitive teeth. Furthermore, saliva that has too much alkalinity excretes excess calcium and can create calculus build up on the teeth.
Cinnamon, Cinnamomum ceylanicum. Our true cinnamon bark essential oil from Madagascar is antiseptic and antibacterial. It stimulates blood circulation to the gums and promotes their health and regeneration. Cinnamon is high in the compounds eugenol and cineol, both of which have potent anesthetic and antiseptic properties that increase the production of white blood cells. According to the work of Drs Franchomme and P"noel, cinnamon bark oil is effective against 98% of all pathogenic bacteria.
Neem, Azadiracta indica, has pain-relieving compounds that can reduce the discomfort of a toothache. The vasodilatation and anti-inflammatory compounds in neem prevent cell adhesion and kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Neem alkalizes the gums and mouth, and kills the bacteria that cause Pyorrhea and Gingivitis. Neem obliterates the calcium-forming organisms and the organisms that cause cavities. Neem is 'arista,' which in Sanskrit means "perfect, complete, and imperishable." Neem has been used in Ayurvedic traditions for thousands of years in agriculture, food storage, and medicine. Many research studies prove that neem is fungicidal, miticidal, and antibacterial. Neem oil is an ideal remedy to eliminate periodontal and tooth infection. It can be applied locally around the teeth and gums and also benefits the gastrointestinal tract.
Foaming chemicals in your mouth while you are brushing your teeth do not create optimal oral ecology. Regular toothpaste gives an illusion of freshness, yet it does not really remove plaque, it is the brushing that does that. It is best to be minimalist about it and use a dry toothbrush with a dab of salt, baking soda, or a Tooth Serum.
The chemicals used in commercial toothpaste, including many of the brands sold in health food stores, include chemicals that you do not want in your mouth, such as glycerin, which coats the teeth and blocks the saliva from doing its primary job of re-mineralizing the enamel. You will also find calcium carbonate, which is essentially chalk that is not at all good for teeth. Also, what paste would be complete without the detergent and surfactant sodium lauryl sulfate, which makes toothpaste foamy? This known carcinogen breaks down your skin's natural barrier, easily penetrates skin, causing bleeding gums, and allows other chemicals to penetrate by increasing skin permeability approximately 100-fold. Additionally, when combined with other chemicals, it transforms into carcinogenic nitrates and can reside in the body for five days.
Some toothpastes contain propylene glycol, also known as anti-freeze, which is only handled with gloves in a lab. Then there"s the FD&C color pigments (including coal tar derivatives that contain heavy metals and accumulate in the body), formaldehyde, Triclosan (a registered pesticide and bio-persistent chemical that destroys fragile aquatic ecosystems), artificial sweeteners, and synthetic isopropyl alcohol. You may also be surprised to learn that ethanol is the primary ingredient in most mouthwashes, even though it is known to cause approximately 36,000 cases of oral disease a year! How is it possible that carcinogens could help keep your mouth healthy? Yet when people find that they have breath or gum problems, one of the first things they do is go out and get a new brand of toothpaste and a big bottle of ethanol-based mouthwash.
In 1996, Nadine spoke at the International Herb & Aromatherapy Conference in Arizona. She was happy to meet a very dear man who was handing out unique pamphlets about the hazards of fluoride and glycerin in toothpaste. He advised her to try brushing the teeth with soap! Curious, Nadine tried brushing with a tiny dash of soap from a bar of Castile soap and it worked really well. Later, this experience led to the development of Neem Enamelizer, which combines herbs, essential oils, and bio-saponins to brush the teeth. This pioneer was Gerard Judd and he wrote Good Teeth from Birth to Death.
