Now! All the natural and effective ingredients used in our Zinc-Plus formula with the added cavity fighting and antioxidant power of Xylitol and Co Q 10. Some of the benefits of using Xylitol, (a natural ingredient derived from birch trees.) along with proper oral hygiene habits are: *Helps to reduce the development of cavities. (Dental caries) *Resists fermentation by oral bacteria *Inhibits plaque formation *Increases salivary flow to aid in the repair of damaged tooth enamel (re-mineralization) *Helps restore a proper alkaline/acid balance in the mouth. This alkaline environment is inhospitable to all the destructive bacteria. CoQ10 sustains the energy needed to defend and protect the gums and helps to strengthen the tissues that hold the teeth, and is essential in the healing and protection of cell tissue.
