Gutology Probiotic ToothpasteUpdated 3 months ago

WHY DO I NEED A NATURAL TOOTHPASTE?
More and more research is emerging about the impact of fluoride and other common toothpaste ingredients on both our oral and gut microbiome. As we use toothpaste everyday, we need a more natural solution that's microbiome friendly.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?
We are really proud that our toothpaste is composed of 100% natural ingredients. No artificial sweeteners, additives or preservatives, but added benefits of anti-inflammatory properties and probiotics. It is also vegan friendly.

Here is the full list of ingredients:
GLYCERIN, AQUA, HYDRATED SILICA, HYDROXYAPATITE, GLYCOLIPIDS, XYLITOL, CELLULOSE GUM, CALCIUM CARBONATE, MENTHA ARVENSIS LEAF OIL, STEVIOSIDE, MENTHOL, AROMA, MENTHA PIPERITA OIL, EUCALYPTUS OIL, LACTOBACILLUS ACIDOPHILUS, LACTOBACILLUS PARACASEI, LIMONENE.

ARE THESE INGREDIENTS SAFE? 
Yes, we've sourced ingredients based on research from nutritionists and made sure all ingredients are safe to use. We also run stability testing on each batch of toothpaste.

It's important to note that people may still be allergic to natural ingredients - you can find full allergen information here: https://help.gutology.co.uk/en-US/gutology-oral-care---allergen-information-425004

WHY HAVE YOU INCLUDED GLYCERIN? 
We've included glycerin in our product to prevent the toothpaste drying out.

7 DAY FREE TRIAL 
If you've signed up for a free trial of the toothpaste, you'll receive a 15ml tube which will last you for 7 days. After that you'll enter our auto-ship program and be sent a full 120ml tube after 7 days. It will automatically ship you a new tube every 30 days. You can cancel or amend your frequency anytime in your customer account or simply by asking us in the chat. 

WHAT ARE ORAL PROBIOTICS? 
We use two oral probiotics: Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Lactobacillus Paracasei.

WHAT IS HYDROXYAPATITE?
This naturally occurring mineral is what gives your teeth and bones their hardness and strength. Osteopathic studies have also shown how hydroxyapatite can strengthen and rebuild bone material and dental enamel — which is also referred to as remineralisation — without any side effects.

WHAT QUALITY & HOW MUCH HYDROXYAPATITE DO YOU USE?
We've specifically selected Biomimetic Hydroxyapatite which is more effective than other hydroxyapatite and has higher remineralisation. It's simply more effective at binding to your teeth.


We source this from natural minerals (Natural Calcium Carbonate), avoiding any animal ingredients. 

Biomimetic Hydroxyapatite is also very effective at reducing sensitivity & whitening teeth.

There's a lot of talk around % use of hydroxyapatite in toothpaste but this can be misleading. The most important thing is the type and quality of the hydroxyapatite and making sure that clinically effective levels are added - like with Gutology Probiotic Toothpaste. 

Hydroxyapatite particles are biomimetic, meaning they mimic natural enamel.

IS THIS TOOTHPASTE SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
Yes, as this is a fluoride-free toothpaste, it's suitable for children. There are no ingredients that should be an issue, however, for younger children and babies, just be mindful of the dosage, as it's quite 'minty' and could a bit much for sensitive tastebuds.
