The mouth is the body’s most common entry point for infection.

There are over 700 million types of bacteria in the human mouth.  About half of U.S. adults have periodontal disease (bacteria filled pockets between teeth and gums).  Bacteria that start in the mouth can enter the bloodstream and travel to the far corners of the body.

Periodontal disease:

•Increases risk of heart attack by 30%

•Increases risk of erectile dysfunction by 3 times

•Increases rate of dementia decline by 6 times in people with Alzheimer’s

Treating periodontal disease reduced HbA1c levels about half a point in people with diabetes –just a one point improvement in HbA1c can reduce risk of peripheral neuropathy by 43%.

Good oral hygiene: Brush, floss, use a tongue cleaner and chew a softgel capsule of cinnamon, thyme, clove and oregano oil twice daily.

To cure periodontal disease, bleeding and receding gums, chew a tablet of CoQ10, 100 mg complexed with gamma-cyclodextrin once or twice daily.
