We all want healthy teeth and gums but no-one enjoys visiting the dentist. Even if you just need your regular teeth clean, imagine if you could be in and out of that dreaded chair more quickly.
Well the fact is you can! Once again nature provides a unique solution that can boost our oral hygiene.
So what is that solution?
Seaweed of course!
Ascophyllum nodosum was the focus of a 2015 study to prove its potential to improve dental health by preventing plaque and calculus in humans.
The Power of Ascophyllum Nodosum Seaweed
Now chances are you already buy Seaperia Meal for your dog. And its working right?
Well in recent years researchers have been delving into the potential benefits of seaweed for human dental health.
The 2015 Study: Key Findings
A 2015 study* conducted by dental researchers explored the effects of Ascophyllum nodosum extract on dental plaque and calculus.
The participants were given just half a gram of Ascophyllum nodosum in capsules every day. Their teeth were dentist cleaned at the beginning and at the 6 and 12 month mark.
The study found that the seaweed significantly reduced the formation of calculus and plaque.
In addition the calculus that did form was less solid and easier to remove.
How to Incorporate Ascophyllum nodosum into Your Routine
Now would you believe that in this study the participants were given a veterinary grade Ascophyllum nodosum!
Of course, you don't need to do that because you know the place to get the world's best Ascophyllum nodosum for human health is right here from our Seaweed Superstore.
One capsule each day of Seagreens Iodine Plus gives you exactly what the participants in this study were given... half a gram of Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed.
One a day is so easy, and if that gets me in and out of that dentist's chair quicker then you can count me in!
I've been taking Seagreens Food capsules for a few years now.
I'm lucky that I have very good teeth (thanks Mum!) and I have got through life without having a single filling.
I usually have my teeth cleaned every 6 months but this year, without really knowing why, I decided to push that out to 9 months.
Well okay, it was to save money... and to tell you the truth I just didn't feel like I needed it that often.
Then I found this study, and now I know why I felt like that. The fact is I don't need a clean as often as I used to!
And I never get bleeding gums any more.
It is amazing and it works.
