A salicylate-free toothpaste without herbal ingredients is provided by Helmuth Focken Biotechnik e.K. – Chitodent®. The active ingredient is chitosan.
Fibromyalgia patients must use a menthol-free toothpaste. You’ll love this homoeopathic formulation during your guaifenesin treatment. The same applies if you are diagnosed with Samter’s triad.
Our chitosan is a natural ingredient of non-herbal origin.
The chitosan is derived from chitin which is found everywhere in the natural world. Chitin is a structural component of the cell walls of fungi, the exoskeletons of crustaceans, crabs, and insects.
Many extensive global research studies have confirmed the effectiveness of chitosan, which does not have an allergenic effect. Chitosan is a real wonder drug for good teeth and healthy gums.
- Chitosan has an antibacterial effect on pathogens, plaque, caries and periodontal disease.
- Chitosan has a stimulating effect on wound healing.
- Chitosan forms a protective film
Immediately after thorough cleaning, a pellicle forms on the tooth surface. This is an invisible acellular film that protects the tooth from erosion and acid attack. This film is composed primarily of proteins in saliva. Because of their own charges, these bind electrostatically to the calcium and phosphate groups of the apatite in hard tooth tissue.
Since the pellicle is also the starting point for bacterial colonization, to avoid erosion it is important, to both minimize damage to this protective layer by using particularly soft cleaners, and to equip it with antibacterial defences. Antibacterial defence is advantageously achieved by chitosan.
Chitosan supports the film binding on the polished enamel. The chitosan is adsorbed into the hard tooth tissue and the pellicle and develops positive effects.
Chitodent® salicylate-free toothpaste is homoeopathy-compatible. The formulation is without fluorine.
Thanks to the active ingredient chitosan the salicylate-free toothpaste acts without herbal ingredients, as the polycation chitosan interacts with polyanionic gums and certain germs.
Creating a salicylate-free toothpaste without herbal ingredients but with taste is a challenge.
Most refreshing ingredients of conventional toothpastes are based on the oils and aromas of field mint or peppermint, or produced from the essential oils of plants, leaves and flowers. They almost always contain salicylates. Fresh taste is a pleasure for homoeopathy patients, especially those who need a salicylate-free toothpaste, because these are so difficult to find.
The menthol-free toothpaste Chitodent® is L-Menthol free. It tastes fresh because of its specially developed, restored flavouring, based on L-Carvone.
Besides the refreshing flavouring, the astringent effective chitosan also influences the taste sensation. The chitosan makes the Chitodent® menthol-free toothpaste with L-Carvone feel even more refreshing. People on guaifenesin treatment have to give up on many flavours because they have to avoid salicylates. Now they can enjoy an effective toothpaste with a problem-free flavouring.
Chitodent® salicylate-free toothpaste originated from a research contract with EUTEC.
The Chitodent® formulation is available in a 75ml tube in German pharmacies under PPN 2239231 and in Austria under PPN 4064273.
Why the formulation for the restored flavouring in Chitodent® 75 ml is salicylate-free and harmless for both homoeopathy patients and for people who have chosen guaifenesin treatment, according to the published literature by Dr St Amand. http://www.helmuth-focken-biotechnik.de/guaifenesin-zahnpasta-ohne-menthol-zahnpasta-ohne-salicylat/
