Using the power of “EcoSafe” ionic coral minerals that actually “remineralize” tooth enamel, [amazon_link id=”B004TR5GBI” target=”_blank” ]Coral Kids’ Toothpaste[/amazon_link] is an all-natural, fluoride-free toothpaste with great promise.
The key to healthy teeth is to maintain proper oral alkalinity and mineralization. Coral Kids’ is formulated with EcoSafe™ ionic coral minerals and is perhaps the most effective toothpaste for cavity protection, whitening teeth, freshening breath and shifting the pH of the mouth. And because of the unique whole food mineral complex from coral minerals along with xylitol, Coral Kids’ actually helps to remineralize tooth enamel. Coral Kids’ (which contains ionic calcium and 73 trace minerals) contains NO FLUORIDE, NO SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE. No toxins means kids can ac accidentally swallow this toothpaste with NO HARMFUL effects. This is the World’s Cleanest Kids Toothpaste!
This toothpaste is recommended for children ages two-years-old and above.
The Eco Safe and Friend of the the Sea labels means this product is sustainable and does not harm the ocean.
I had my 13-year-old daughter try this product. She said it was not very strong in flavor, which was a bonus. Her biggest complain of kids’ toothpastes we are sent are that they are overly flavored to try and make them appealing.
[amazon_link id=”B004TR5GBI” target=”_blank” ]Coral Kids’ Toothpaste[/amazon_link] doesn’t have the mint flavor I crave in a toothpaste to make my breath feel fresher, even though it does contain some spearmint. When both of my children were young, they could not tolerate adult toothpaste due to the strong mint flavors. They complained it burned their mouths.
I love the ingredient list on this product! I think including herbs like goldenseal and echinacea are good for gum health. This toothpaste is sweetened with stevia. It also contains xylitol (don’t use on your dog’s teeth!), which is supposed to be better than fluoride at maintaining and strengthening tooth enamel. In fact, it has been called the “decay-preventive sweetener” by the California Dental Association.
How does xylitol prevent cavities?
Xylitol inhibits the growth of the bacteria that cause cavities. It does this because these bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) cannot utilize xylitol to grow. Over time with xylitol use, the quality of the bacteria in the mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria survive on tooth surfaces. Less plaque forms and the level of acids attacking the tooth surface is lowered.
Studies show that Streptococcus mutans is passed from parents to their newborn children, thus beginning the growth of these decay- producing bacteria in the child. Regular use of xylitol by mothers has been demonstrated to significantly reduce this bacterial transmission, resulting in fewer cavities for the child.
The combined benefits of the herbs, xylitol, and coral minerals, this kids’ toothpaste seems very beneficial!
