Optimal CalMag

 

• Vitamin D and calcium are involved in bone and teeth formation, growth and repair.
• Phosphorous is utilized for growth and repair of body cells and tissues.
• Magnesium is involved in a wide range of functions in human physiology.
• The primary function of phosphorus is in the formation of bones and teeth.
• Deficiencies of Vitamin D or calcium may lead to resorption of bone around the teeth and destruction of the periodontal ligaments that anchor the teeth to the jawbone. (1)
• Clinical trials have demonstrated that magnesium deficiency is associated with periodontal disease, and patients taking magnesium supplements showed improved periodontal health, including reduced probing depth, less attachment loss and less tooth loss. (2)

Optimal D3 2000

• Vitamin D3 deficiency is implicated in a variety of diseases, including periodontitis.
• Vitamin D3 is essential for calcium absorption and helps maintain the proper balance of calcium and phosphorus in bones.
• Vitamin D3 plays a role in calcium and bone metabolism. Vitamin D3 has been shown to function in cancer prevention, immunity and cardiovascular regulation, and plays a role in maintaining oral health through its effects on bone and mineral metabolism and innate immunity. (1)
• Deficiencies of Vitamin D3 may lead to the resorption of bone around the teeth and destruction of the periodontal ligaments that anchor the teeth to the jawbone. (2)

Recommendations:
One tablet daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

One tablet supplies:
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol)………………………..1,000 or 2000 or 5000 IU

• Omega-3 fatty acids modulate cellular function in numerous processes, including brain and visual development, inflammatory reactions, thrombosis and carcinogenesis. (1)
• Omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to have therapeutic anti-inflammatory and protective actions in inflammatory diseases, including periodontitis. (1)
• Results of a double blind study comparing docosahexanoic acid (DHA) plus eicosopentanoic acid (EPA) vs placebo in patients with chronic periodontitis found significant reductions in probing depths and significant attachment gains after 3 and 6 months in the DHA and EPA group. (2)
• Another clinical trial demonstrated that patients treated with omega-3 fatty acids had significantly less periodontal disease progression over five years then the reference group. (3)

• Patients with periodontal disease commonly have a deficiency in CoQ-10 in gingival tissue. (1)
• In a double blind clinical trial, patients treated with CoQ-10 had a significant reduction in the symptoms of periodontal disease after three weeks of treatment. (2)

SUGGESTED USE: 1 or more soft gel capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.

Pro Flora Balance

Pro Flora Balance

• Probiotics are broadly categorized in two genus, Lactobaccilus and Bifidobacterium, and are associated with periodontal health status. These probiotics are able to affect gingivitis and plaque composition positively. (1)
• A significant decrease in gingival bleeding and a reduction in gingivitis were observed after a two week intake of probiotic species. (2)
• In a double blind study, probiotics decreased the plaque index and pocket probing depth significantly in patients who were smokers; and also reduced the prevalence of periodontal pathogens. (3)
• Another study found normalization of micro flora and reduction of signs of gingivitis and periodontitis. (4)
