Cranberry May Prevent Tooth Decay

Over 95% of adults experience tooth decay- in fact, it is the most common oral infection. Besides toothaches and bad breath, tooth decay may also lead to gingivitis and other diseases. Each year Americans spend almost $40 billion to treat tooth decay and its health consequences.

Researchers from UCLA recently presented evidence of how cranberry can stop the formation of dental plaques and tooth decay. Cranberry works by preventing adhesion of the bacteria Streptococcus mutans to your teeth.

The new UCLA studies support similar findings on cranberry and oral health by scientists at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York.

The anti-adhesion effects of cranberry fruit are becoming legendary. It is now known that cranberry helps reduce urinary infections by preventing E.coli bacteria from sticking to your bladder. Similarly, cranberry's anti-adhesion properties have been shown to suppress bacteria that are a major cause of peptic ulcers.

Previous research identified the scrubbing agents in cranberry as antioxidants called proanthocyanidins. With respect to preventing tooth decay, the UCLA scientists found that another type of antioxidants called flavanols provide the anti-adhesion benefits. Apparently, there is more to the cranberry fruit than previously known with even more health discoveries likely.

NatureCity's AloeCran® Juice Concentrate is a great way to help fight bacteria in the mouth. Both Aloe vera and Cranberry have been shown to significantly improve oral health. For information, please contact customer service toll free at 1-800-593-2563.
