I'm a firm believer in the power of probiotics because I've had issues all my life with being lactose intolerant, only when I was younger I didn't realize what the issue was and I certainly didn't know that I could control the problem myself. Once I learned that probiotics could be used to increase the “good” bacteria and reduce the “bad” bacteria in my gut to help control my symptoms, it was like a whole new world opened up for me and I was able to once again eat my favorite foods (like ice cream and pizza) without regretting it later!
When I found out that the people at TheraBreath were working on a line of oral care probiotics designed to specifically target the germs responsible for many oral care problems like bad breath, cavities, biofilm, plaque formation, gum disease, even ear aches and sore throats I jumped at the chance to get to try them when they became available. I have to admit to being a little nervous about trying the TheraBreath probiotics once they got here, but I'm a huge fan of the brand and I know that probiotics work so after a couple days of watching the box sit on my desk I decided to give it a whirl.
The kit was pretty easy to use and includes everything you need. Each day you just mix a stick pack of probiotics with water and gargle. You're instructed to brush first with the included TheraBreath toothpaste, being sure to also brush your tongue and inside your cheeks to prepare your mouth for the treatment. I was also very interested to learn that the contents are gluten-free, contain no animal derived compounds, and are certified kosher.
The day I started taking the probiotics I woke up with a bit of a sore throat and thought that I was coming down with a cold the kids had been passing around. I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that the strains of probiotics in the TheraBreath treatment also help defend against cold and flu-like symptoms, and I believe they helped keep me from getting the full-blown cold the others had.
I previously had the chance to try the TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Lozenges that help to fight bad breath by keeing the mouth moist and oxygenated. Although the words “mouth wetting lozenges” on the box seemed a little strange to me at first, I immediately became a convert after trying them! I've given up the regular mints that I used to always carry around and I’ve got my husband and my dad hooked on them now too! The lozenges are made from all natural ingredients and have a pleasant minty orange flavor, but the best part for me is that they have NO after taste. Whenever I’d have a “regular” mint it always affected the taste of everything I’d eat or drink right after having one, but that was not the case with the TheraBreath lozenges. I could even have a soda or sweets (like chocolate) after and their taste was never affected.
I'm thrilled to announce that one lucky reader is going to win a box of 100 TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Lozenges.
