Many people know how important probiotics are for the colon which is host to over 400 species of bacteria — weighting about 3.5 pounds! About 80% of that host should be friendly flora that creates an environment that keeps the pathogenic bacteria under control so they do not manifest in bacterial infections. But, do probiotics play a role in oral health as well? The mouth is the gateway to the gastrointestinal system and contains a host of bacteria that thrive in saliva.
“In addition to the important digestive enzymes that begin the chemical breakdown of food as you chew, saliva contains between 10,000 and 1 billion microorganisms per milliliter (1/5 teaspoon)." ~ Probiotics: Nature’s Internal Healers, Natasha TrenevUndesirable bacteria left in the mouth too long can cause cavities and contribute to gum disease and oral pathology. Most of the bacteria in the mouth reside in harmony when the friendly bacteria are predominating. To help support a health balance of beneficial bacteria in the mouth, Hallelujah Acres has formulated a chewable probiotic supplement. While most probiotic supplements are designed to support the friendly flora in the colon, this unique chewable probiotic begins restoring friendly flora in the mouth — the gateway to the digestive system!
Introducing Hallelujah Acres Chewable ProbioticsHallelujah Acres Oral Health Probiotics are chewable probiotics, specifically formulated with several strains of bacteria that exhibit potential for supporting oral health. Of particular interest is a lactic acid bacterium called L. reuteri. Compared to other lactobacilli strains, L. reuteri shows a superior ability to balance bacteria in your mouth, which:
- protects gums from inflammation
- reduces plaque
- helps prevent bleeding gums, and
- prevents “bad” bacteria formation.
