Review: Gum alive, The First Mouth Spa Toothpaste In The World

Wednesday, May 10, 2017
Gum alive. Hmm, I wonder if this is just like the other toothpastes I have tried.







There's a reason for not having any celebrity endorsers for their products. Word of mouth is more powerful than any endorsement. It relies on honest testimonials. The packaging says  Pure Herbal Extract Spa Toothpaste. Pure means 100%. It also claims it has no SLS, Parabens, and Flouride.


Let's break it down:


SLS or Sodium Laureth Sulfate is an inexpensive and very effective foaming agent used in many cosmetic products for its cleaning and emulsifying properties. It behaves similarly to soap. I learned from research that it can cause irritation of the scalp, gums and skin.


Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in personal care products; they stop fungus, bacteria and other microbes from growing in your favourite creams and makeup, especially in the moist, warm environment of a bathroom. In the 1990s, parabens were deemed xenoestrogens―agents that mimic estrogen in the body. “Estrogen disruption” has been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues. And in 2004 British cancer researcher Philippa Darbre, Ph.D., found parabens present in malignant breast tumors. As a result, experts in many countries are recommending limits on paraben levels in cosmetic products. What’s more, watchdog organizations worry that if parabens can be stored in the body, over time they could have a cumulative effect and pose a health risk.


Flouride on the other hand easily accumulates in your pineal gland. In fact, your pineal gland has the highest concentration of fluoride of any organ in your body, even more than your teeth and bones. This can wreak havoc with your melatonin production, which in turn can disrupt your biological clock and even influence your cancer risk. That is only one of the dangers of Flouride.



Analyzing the effects of the three said ingredients will make you want to think twice about using traditional toothpaste products.



SO WHAT DOES GUM ALIVE TOOTHPASTES CONTAIN?


Since it is three products, I thought of giving ample time to test each and picked the Green one that says FRESH BREATH. The box indicates "Ingredients : Bhodical extract ,guava leaf oil , distilled wood vinegar."



Bodhical Extract is the formula that claims to strengthen the gums and teeth and address the root causes of oral care problems.

I used it. I gave it a week, followed by two more weeks. 






DOES IT WORK?


Yes. You would not wait a week to see the results. I can testify that it gave me fresh breath but I was curious enough to make sure the results will be consistent so I tried it for more than a month. The Fresh breath variant really works! I tested my breath after waking up in the morning. No more morning breath!  I also had someone check it out for me regularly.


There's a reason it has three variants: Fresh breath, Special gum care, and teeth whitening. It's because each toothpaste has its functions which works synergistically with each other.

By now you might be curious if the other two variant also works. My sister and my close friend had toothache and tried the variant which says Special Gum Care. I was not expecting it to work, honestly. Hey! you know what? It actually reduced the pain. Stay tuned as I update this post over the next few weeks or months as I try the other variants myself.
