PlaqueAway® is a food supplement with significant oral health benefits. The Ascophyllum nodosum powder in PlaqueAway® is certified organic in Norway. It has been found that a compound present in Ascophyllum nodosum reduces dental plaque and tartar on teeth. This compound appears to not only reduce the formation of plaque and tartar, but to make the tartar stick less well to the teeth and to be less hard. The benefits are: A whitening of teeth due to a reduction in discoloured tartar. A reduction in the amount of work that the dentist needs to do to mechanically remove tartar which, in turn, reduces discomfort to patients and damage to gums that may occur during the removal of tartar, as well as dental costs. More importantly, a reduction in tartar reduces the incidence of cavities, gingivitis and periodontitis. Better oral health also reduces bad breath. Cannot be used when pregnant or if you have thyroid issues.
