To kick-start your health journey for 2022, we’ve partnered up with RiseWell to offer you free pure, natural oral health kits.
What’s included in the package? We have included the RiseWell toothpaste bamboo toothbrush, as well as scrubby floss inside our branded pouches. The toothbrush and toothpaste are made from hydroxyapatite, a natural substance that has been shown to protect and strengthen your teeth, without fluoride.
What is Hydroxyapatite? Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a mineral that occurs naturally and makes up 97% of the enamel on your teeth 70 percent of dentin, and 60 percent of our bones and is scientifically proven to protect and strengthen our teeth with fluoride.
To increase the strength of enamel and resist acid, toothpaste has employed active ingredients such as fluoride in place of in order to build and strengthen tooth enamel. Fun fact Microcrystalline HA was developed by NASA in the year 1970 to serve as a remineralizing ingredient for those returning to space who had minerals lost in their teeth and bones as a result of zero gravity.
What is the function of hydroxyapatite? as the primary ingredient in tooth enamel, Hydroxyapatite has the ability to chemically attach to teeth and function as a protective shield. It also serves as a filler since it can repair small depressions and holes on the surface of enamel and naturally whitens. Hydroxyapatite works by filling the micropores of demineralized tooth surfaces. Once it has penetrated the enamel’s pores, it acts as a template during the process of remineralization by constantly drawing large quantities in calcium and phosphate ions out of the remineralization solution into the enamel, thereby increasing the integrity of the crystal and promoting growth.
