Spry toothpaste (Xlear Inc.) announced a new, more effective formula based on new research. A new study, published in the Journal of Dentistry, concludes the combination of fluoride and nanosized trimetaphosphate (TMP) more effectively hardens teeth against damage and decay than fluoride alone.
Studies show poor dental hygiene is linked to increase risks of cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and even infectious disease illnesses. Stronger teeth, and enhanced gum health, are critical to overall wellness.
“One of the best and easiest ways to stay healthy is to use a more effective toothpaste for maintaining your teeth and oral health. An oral care regime that includes TMP to further strengthen the enamel and xylitol to reduce the acid creating bacteria is what really works according to peer-reviewed, published research,” says Mark Cannon, DDS, MS, a Professor at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, in Chicago.
The Study concludes: The TMP toothpaste “promoted a greater protective effect against enamel demineralization and significantly affected the composition of biofilm formed in situ compared to [1100 ppm fluoride] toothpaste.” As reflected in the chart at illustration A, the TMP/Fluoride compound makes teeth harder at a much greater enamel depth than other toothpastes, including fluoride toothpaste. The Study also found that TMP: “raise[s] fluoride and led to higher calcium in [tooth] enamel”; reduced the cariogenicity and increased calcium and phosphate in the biofilm (the bacterial colonies of the mouth); and, “provide[d] toothpastes with less contribution to fluoride intake in children.”
For decades, Americans have relied on fluoride—in our water, in toothpaste—to help prevent tooth decay, harden teeth, improve dental health, and enhance overall wellness. We use fluoride to the point where 40% of our teenagers have fluorosis: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/us-says-too-much-fluoride-in-water/.
In addition, the CDC has warned health providers to limit the use of fluoride due to the shocking data that more than 38% of children consume too much fluoride toothpaste: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/68/wr/mm6804a3.htm. “Analysis of 2013–2016 data found that >38% of children aged 3–6 years used more toothpaste than that recommended by CDC and other professional organizations.”
In addition to fluoride, Spry includes xylitol, erythritol, and nano trimetaphosphate (nTMP). Xylitol is a five-carbon sugar, a natural carbohydrate that occurs freely in plants (for example, in fruits, such as blueberries, strawberries and plums) and is produced in the human body from Vitamin C and by other natural pathways.
The Journal of Dentistry study shows that the new ingredients in Spry toothpaste are significantly more effective than typical fluoride toothpastes,” says Nathan Jones, CEO of Xlear, the maker of new, more effective Spry. “Brush your way to better health with Spry,” Jones concluded.
Spry is available at leading retailers across the nation, including Wegmans, The Vitamin Shoppe, Sprouts Farmers Markets, Natural Grocers, and most all Natural market retailers. It can also be purchased online, including on Amazon.
