Ayurvedic toothpicks with neem
Auromère, a premium line of Ayurvedic bodycare products, has created specialized toothpicks for healthy gums. Called Neem Picks, they are made from birchwood dipped in neem bark extract and potent essential oils such as cinnamon, peppermint, spearmint and fennel. The new picks stimulate the gums, and remove food particles and plaque from between teeth while freshening the breath. The California-based company offers a trio of dental-hygiene products that do not contain fluoride, gluten, artificial sweeteners, dyes, bleaches, animal ingredients or preservatives. Products are effective for special-care situations and everyday maintenance including sensitive teeth and gums.

Toddler beverages with Wellmune WGP
New beverages launched by Mead Johnson Nutrition in Thailand and Mexico contain Wellmune WGP, a patented beta glucan ingredient by Biothera. The natural ingredient is a complex carbohydrate formed from glucose molecules that activates key innate immune cells that are the body’s first line of defense. The product is called Enfagrow PREMIUM 3 with Beta Glucan in Mexico and Enfakid A+ with Beta Glucan in Mexico and Thailand.

Respiratory support with turmeric, neem
Organix-South, a leading manufacturer of organic neem-based products, has introduced two dietary supplements in its organic TheraVeda line: Aller Support and Respiratory Support. Both formulas contain time-tested herbs such as turmeric, neem and holy basil, known for supporting sinus and respiratory health. Both formulas contain a blend of turmeric and neem. These two herbs, naturally rich in quercetin, are ideal adjuncts to any herbal regimen for seasonal conditions, as quercetin is often recommended to support healthy breathing, balanced histamine levels and to enhance the body’s ability to respond to inflammation.
