Revitin is a probiotic toothpaste, which supports a healthy oral microbiome- meaning all the organisms in your mouth are happy with each other and not causing any disease such as bleeding gums, erosion of the enamel, cavities, infections, gum recession, etc. Not only will a healthy oral microbiome support a healthy mouth, but because you are swallowing all day, it supports a healthy gut as well. So, if you have unhealthy organisms in your mouth you are repopulating the stomach, and therefore the rest of your body, with disease-causing pathogens. A healthy mouth always starts with your diet- so it’s important to eat primarily meat, with some vegetables, and avoid sugars and high carbs.
Revitin tastes like an orange tic-tac, so it isn’t the greatest for minty fresh breath- for this, we recommend the occasional use of a natural minty toothpaste. But why should you limit the use of minty toothpaste? Anything containing mint, neem, clove, spearmint, xylitol, and even fluoride will be anti-microbial, causing a disruption in your oral microbiome. Using an antimicrobial toothpaste is like taking an antibiotic every day; it isn’t healthy.
Although Dr. Schmdit recommends using Revitin as your primary toothpaste, we do suggest easing into it especially if you have poorer health. It is recommended to start working on your overall health and diet first, then begin to introduce a probiotic toothpaste. Double-check with your practitioner if this is right for you!
