Nutraceuticals For Periodontal Disease

Among medical professionals and patients alike, there is an increasing awareness of the important role proper nutrition plays in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease (vitamins for gum disease). Vitamins, supplements, and a regime of healthy eating are often recommended. Unfortunately, few people actually eat right every single day, and many supplements are weak, or not easily absorbed by the body.

What are nutraceuticals?

The Pharmaden line of products is different from the vitamins and supplements commonly available at your local drugstore. They are nutraceuticals, meaning that they are scientifically formulated with the same level of research and testing you would expect from any pharmaceutical product.

Treating periodontal (gum) disease

Artificial prescription and non-prescription medications often have a detrimental effect on overall health. Antibiotics are effective for reduction of infection, but they can suppress the body’s own immune system. Decreased immunity makes any kind of treatment more difficult, as well as making one more susceptible to many diseases and health problems. PerioTherapy, by Pharmaden, is not an antibiotic. It is a specially formulated blend of nutritive ingredients, which allow the body to fight infection and disease from within.

According to a study conducted by the Loma Linda University Dental School in California, PerioTherapy by Pharmaden helps reduce gingivitis, pocket depth, and bleeding. In this study, an average of 1.37mm pocket depth reduction was achieved after 60 days of PerioTherapy, with no additional intervention. Throughout the study, no adverse side effects were reported by the participants.

Prevention and maintenance

The perfect follow up to PerioTherapy treatment is Pharmaden’s PerioCare. It is designed to provide nutritional support for gum health, and whole-body health. Because nutrition is the foundation for overall health, people with nutritional deficiencies may be up to 300 percent more likely to develop periodontal disease. PerioCare may be recommended for preventing gum disease, or maintaining the results of periodontal treatment.

Pharmaden L.L.C. nutraceuticals are the safe, natural way to promote and support periodontal health, with proven results.
