Revitin Prebiotic Natural Toothpaste
Dr. Gerry Curatola is one of the founders of this fantastic natural toothpaste. He is a well-known dentist from New York who also works as Associate Professor at New York University—knowing that a famous dentist who is known as a great contributor in cosmetic dentistry is working on toothpaste is enough. Revitin toothpaste is not affordable like many other tubes of toothpaste you can find on the market, but with price comes the quality. Let’s take a look at ingredients and see what is inside this luxurious toothpaste.
Revitin Prebiotic Ingredients
MSM aka Methylsulfonylmethane
MSM is found in green plants, animals, and humans. We know that most probably MSM in this toothpaste is not derived from humans (i hope), so it is either plants or animals. And since this toothpaste is vegan-friendly, then we know that MSM is derived from plants.
Methylsulfonylmethane is used as an Anti-inflammatory ingredient for gum health. MSM is used as a medicine component in treating hemorrhoids and osteoarthritis. It is used on skin or taken orally. Anyway, we know that there is nothing terrible about this ingredient. The name can be alarming, but the dosage in the toothpaste is minimal, and we know people were consuming a much larger dosage over an extended period.
CoQ10 aka Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 sounds as bad as Methylsulfonylmethane, but then again, it is not. CoQ10 is naturally found in our bodies, just as it is Methylsulfonylmethane. CoQ10 is antioxidant, which also has anti-inflammatory properties.
Hydrated Dental Silica
Silica, as you already probably know if you read reviews on this website, is used as abrasive. We need some kind of abrasive substance that will clean our teeth and give us a shiny white smile.
Oils are useful in many ways, fighting bacteria and excellent flavor. Revitin Prebiotic toothpaste contains three oils: organic lemon oil, tangerine oil, and cranberry seed oil.
Remineralization is one strong point of this toothpaste, but my stand on remineralization is still the same. I still believe that a healthy person who eats healthy food, lots of whole, unprocessed food, free from animal products do not need remineralization. But we need to be honest and agree that there are only a small amount of people who fall into this category. So we need some kind of remineralization. In Revitin toothpaste, we see dicalcium phosphate and calcium carbonate as the main ingredients for remineralization. Dicalcium phosphate is widely used by a dentist who uses it to restore teeth health. Dicalcium phosphate is a great way to replace fluoride in tooth decay prevention. It is also used in toothpaste to gently polish teeth and add a beautiful white smile to your face.
Calcium carbonate has similar properties. When a human body lacks calcium, then doctors prescribe calcium carbonate pills.
Vitamins, C, D3, E, and K2, are also an essential part of the Revitin toothpaste formula. Vitamins are used as antioxidants, which also support remineralization.
Organic Quillaja Saponaria Extract
This component is used orally to treat bronchitis and cough. If used in medicine, then I don’t see why it would not be safe in toothpaste.
All these ingredients used as medicine in a considerable dosage may be dangerous, but in toothpaste, a minimal amount is used. And you need to ingest them to get over the safe level, which with regular teeth cleaning is impossible. Still, I wouldn’t recommend kids to use it, especially small children who don’t know how to brush yet. They should use water and learn how to brush correctly without swallowing.
I didn’t find any dangerous or questionable ingredient in this toothpaste, and this is perfect toothpaste if you can afford it. The price is high, but as I already said, with price comes quality. If you can afford Revitin toothpaste, you will not regret it.
