Finding a great-tasting natural toothpaste with nourishing ingredients to fortify your smile isn’t as easy as it sounds, but it’s well worth the effort. Whether you’ve fully embraced the plant-based lifestyle or you’re curious about whether a vegan toothpaste can really deliver what your smile needs, we’re confident that ORL is what you’re looking for. Below, we’ll go over five of the top reasons to switch today.
1. You Know What You’re Consuming
All too often, companies hide animal-based items on their ingredient lists. For example, glycerin is in many traditional and natural toothpastes. Not only is it a skin, eye and respiratory irritant, according to PubChem, but it can be derived from animal or plant sources. Bugs are also used as colorants, listed as carmine, cochineal extract, natural red 4, and other similar names. Unfortunately, animal-based ingredients are slipped into toothpaste as vitamins, minerals, and flavorings too.
With ORL, our ingredient lists are straightforward, though you also have our assurance that our toothpastes and mouthwashes are 100% plant based.
2. Vegan Diets are Associated with Reduced Risk of Disease
Research from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) indicates vegetarian and vegan diets are associated with lower risk of:
- Atonic constipation
- Certain cancers
- Coronary artery disease
- Type II diabetes
3. Vegatarian Products Integrate with Your Mindful Lifestyle
Whether you’re choosing a plant-based lifestyle for religious or philosophical beliefs or any other reason, your decision will have a ripple effect. Experts say it’s much better for the environment, as it cuts down on land use, reduces greenhouse emissions, and cuts back on water pollution. It’s also associated with compassionate living, as no animals suffer due to their production.
4. ORL’s Toothpastes and Mouthwashes Address the Most Common Oral Health Concerns of Vegetarians
On the one hand, you’ll hear that vegans have reduced risk for conditions like periodontal disease. Because a plant-based diet can reduce inflammation, there’s evidence to suggest that’s true. However, AJCN research indicates that vegetarians often have more acidic saliva, which allows bacteria to thrive and encourages tooth demineralization, and sometimes don’t get enough calcium, which can leave teeth weak and susceptible to decay.
ORL products are mindfully designed with a perfectly neutral 7.0 pH for optimal oral health and contain essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium and vitamin D and natural hydroxyapatite to whiten and to fortify teeth against decay.
