Clearwater, Florida (February 21, 2005) – Organix South, Inc. introduces TheraNeem Herbal Toothpaste, a unique and powerful oral care formula containing active botanicals such as supercritical extracts of Neem Bark and Leaf, Grapeseed, Clove, Fennel and other plants for maximum support of healthy gums and teeth. Formulated with great care to address problem areas in the mouth, the mint flavored product also leaves the breath fresh and teeth gleaming white. According to Autumn Blum, a cosmetic chemist who also serves the company as President, “This toothpaste contains a LOT of Neem bark because I wanted it to be really effective. So many products fall short of really keeping the mouth healthy.You will see by its brown color that it means BUSINESS!” Avoiding the common “unnatural” ingredients of traditional toothpaste, the company does not use lauryl sulfate, saccharin, parabens, artificial colors, artificial flavors or fluoride and guarantees that there are no animal by-products or testing. TheraNeem Herbal Toothpaste is step one of a three phase Oral Care System developed by Organix South that includes TheraNeem Mouthwash and internal supplementation with TheraNeem Leaf Supercritical Extract to provide consumers with best results. The four ounce tube is safe for children, diabetics and pets!
Commonly known in India as the “Toothbrush Tree”, Neem has traditionally been used in India and sourthern Asia as the preferred method for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. The bark and the sap within the twig are known not only for their cleaning ability but also for protecting the mouth. Such is its prominence in Indian society, that many researchers believe that these Neem twigs have helped rural Indians avoid cavities, despite limited access to modern dental care. Scientific research supports that Neem bark extract can reduce the ability of some streptococci to colonize tooth surfaces (Wolinsky, et al, 1996 and Patel and Venkatakrishna, 1988). In addition, the regular use of Neem toothpaste and mouthwash were shown to prevent or even reverse gingivitis (Elvin-Lewis, 1980).
