I found this link about how adding calcium lactate to xylitol gum can increase the remineralization process of teeth.. http://content.karger.com/ProdukteDB/produkte.asp?Doi=88905 .. I think it may be helpful information, maybe to apply then to Zellies products.. Best regards. JM
Thank you for this link.
I have been so impressed by the remineralization produced by Zellies alone – that I am not sure if adding more to this product is a good idea or not.
I agree that minerals are necessary for remineralization.
There is obviously a salivary component – and diet will affect the mineral content of saliva.
Salivary pH is also important – and not mentioned in the study you link to.
Maybe for people without saliva – extra minerals may be useful.
I usually recommend a good diet to anyone trying to remineralize their teeth.
I suggest plenty of D and K along with high quality mineral supplements.
Probiotics are useful to ensure the health of oral biofilm and also the health of the digestive tract.
Eating fermentable foods – good dairy etc should be part of any wellness program and especially when you are trying to heal teeth.
Thanks so much for your suggestion – I will keep my eyes open for more on this!
