USANA Whitening Toothpaste
When it comes to toothpaste we’ve generally been relying on fluoride to fight decay, potentially harmful whitening agents to give us a bright smile, and chemical flavors to keep our mouth fresh. But the truth is, physical brushing action tends to be a lot more important than your choice of toothpaste in breaking up dental plaque and preventing cavities.
Having said that, many parents are concerned about the presence of fluoride in the toothpastes their children use for it’s potential to be a neurotoxin. Researchers have been looking for alternatives that could replace fluoride, and it just may be that we’ve found it.
USANA Whitening Toothpaste is a blend of carefully chosen ingredients designed to give you better oral health and mental peace, fluoride-free. Ingredients include baking soda, sea salt, aloe vera, coconut oil, and beneficial probiotics.
Baking Soda for a Whiter Smile
One of the most important ingredients in USANA Whitening Toothpaste is baking soda, which is a blend of calcium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, and silica. Baking soda acts as a mild abrasive with its grains, helping to remove stains and debris without damaging the tooth enamel. Baking soda is a well-known, tried-and-tested tooth whitening agent. Sodium bicarbonate is an essential ingredient in whitening toothpastes.
Sea Salt for Better Dental Health
USANA Whitening Toothpaste also contains sea salt, another polishing agent that helps with whitening and giving you a bright smile. Salt also has the effect of stimulating saliva and bringing healthy moisture to your gums for a glowing smile.
A study has found sea salt also has other roles to play in dental health. Poor oral hygiene can cause infection and inflammation, which leads to swollen gums. Swollen gums can be painful and be accompanied by sores, redness, and bleeding. Sea salt helps to prevent edema by drawing out through osmosis, the fluids that cause your gums to swell.
Aloe Vera as Soothing Armor
USANA Whitening Toothpaste also contains aloe vera. Aloe Vera leaves a slippery surface on teeth that prevents plaque and debris from getting stuck in between teeth. Because of its anti-inflammatory effects, aloe vera is used in many dental treatments as a safe alternative to harmful chemicals often used in toothpastes. Aloe vera tooth gel is also gaining ground as a gentle anti-decay dental product.
Coconut Oil for Extra Protection
Lauric acid from coconut oil is known to kill bad oral bacteria. The method of swishing coconut oil in the mouth has been traditionally used to treat gingivitis. Of the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil, nearly 45 to 50% is lauric acid. Within a week of using coconut oil, plaque and symptoms of gingivitis tend to drop significantly. The next best thing to coconut oil is to use a toothpaste that contains coconut oil – simple right!
Probiotics for Anti-Decay Support
A groundbreaking ingredient in USANA Whitening Toothpaste is ADP-1, a strain of lactobacillus paracasei bacteria. A strain of this microbe is present in mother’s milk and present in the guts of infants as helpful probiotics. Another strain that builds up in the cracks and pits of teeth causes dental cavities. So, it’s helpful for preventing tooth decay as well as improving gut health.
However, probiotics are gaining more recognition for what appears to be an ability to fight bacteria. While a lot more research is needed on oral probiotics, they may work in the same way as probiotics for the gut.
Probiotics or good bacteria take up space in the mouth, on the surfaces of teeth, providing competition for bad bacteria. They also compete for resources, and therefore help to keep a check on the growth of bad bacteria. In this way, probiotic lactobacillus paracasei may help to inhibit the growth of streptococcus mutans, the caries-causing bacteria. A study has found that there’s more probiotic bacteria in the mouth after at least 2 weeks of using a probiotic-loaded dental product – if we ever needed an excuse to switch brands, USANA could be a better option for your family.
Is Fluoride Harmful? We Think So; So No More Fluoride!
One of the biggest concerns in toothpaste for parents is the presence of fluoride. Many people are exposed to fluorinated water in addition to fluorides in toothpaste. While safe in small quantities, when you’re exposed to too much fluoride, it can have adverse effects.
Children are particularly affected by excess exposure, experiencing white spots and discoloration of teeth, and perhaps even impaired development. Sometimes, children can ingest fluoride while they’re brushing their teeth by swallowing toothpaste inadvertently. Read the fine print on your family toothpaste and see if there are warnings against swallowing it.
The chemical is usually added to toothpaste because of its ability to prevent tooth decay. It’s also added in water supplies to support dental health. But a lot of parents may be worried about too much fluoride exposure. May we introduce you to USANA Whitening Toothpaste, which is in fact, fluoride-free.
Fluoride is replaced in the toothpaste with other compounds that fight tooth decay, provide fresh breath as well as a strain of lactobacillus bacteria that has oral probiotic benefits.
USANA Whitening Toothpaste for a Brighter Smile
Your regular toothpaste may be able to protect you broadly with anti-bacterial action. But along with removing bad bacteria, most toothpastes also remove the good. This is why it’s important to replenish the good microbes in your oral environment.
The probiotic component of USANA Whitening Toothpaste will help you achieve a more balanced oral flora. But after brushing your teeth at the end of the day, you can also swish your mouth with USANA Oral Probiotic lozenges to fill your mouth with good bacteria that can work through the night to keep your dental health protected and give you a bright and confident smile as you go about your day the next day.

A fluoride-free, probiotic-rich toothpaste such as USANA Whitening Toothpaste can put you at ease about your family’s dental health. Of course, good brushing practices are also important. This means brushing twice a day and flossing…only the teeth you would like to keep, as my dentist used to say!
Many of us load our brushes with a lot more toothpaste than we need. A pea-size amount of toothpaste is usually enough for an individual’s needs.
