Ingredients: Sea Vegetables: Chondrus crispus & Fucus versicuosis:
Studies show that a small daily dose of these sea vegetables can be very effective in helping to safely reduce and prevent dental plaque and tartar.
So how does it work? These sea vegetables contain a multitude of important trace minerals including Calcium and Magnesium which support healthy teeth and gums. They are also rich in polysaccharides. Chondrus crispus contains a very high percentage of polysaccharides and is an important ingredient in toothpaste. Polysaccharides are known for their mucilaginous, viscous properties which exhibit antibacterial and anti-viral actions. In studies, these polysaccharides have also been shown to inhibit plaque and tartar formation. By creating a thin viscous coating of film on the teeth and gums these sea vegetables help to support a healthy bacterial balance in the mouth. An over growth of bad oral bacteria is one of the major causes of gum disease. The waste product caused by these bacteria is extremely acid causing erosion of the teeth's enamel. The waste from these bacteria can leak through the gums into the blood stream, affecting major organs of the body. Due to the ability of these sea vegetables to inhibit calculi formation, Tartar X may also be useful in preventing urinary calculi and crystals etc.
Another positive action of these sea vegetables is that they are rich in iodine. Iodine is important for skin and coat, and thyroid function, the thyroid helps control the body's metabolism. Iodine also plays an important role in the removal of toxins from the body, and assists the body in utilizing various minerals, like calcium and silicon.
Fragaria: The leaves and roots are used in treatments of tartar and gum disease. Fragaria is the homeopathic treatment of choice for plaque and tartar control. Traditionally Fragaria was also used to treat the liver, intestinal and stomach disorders.
Peppermint: Well known breath freshener and digestive aid, although, traditionally peppermint was used for dental plaque.
Parsley: Traditional breath freshener with the added benefit of supporting kidney function. Used for windy colic and as a gastric tonic.
Added this to my old collie's food as although her teeth looked ok, her breath stank. I can tell you this works, no more stinky breath.
I have been using this on my dog as her breath seems to be getting worse with age. I am happy to say that it has worked wonders, her breath has lost its overpowering doggy smell, and surprisingly her teeth look much cleaner! Would recommend, for any dog lovers, in particular those who may have an older pooch like me.
