Vita-Myr: A Natural Gum Disease Treatment and Bad Breath Banisher

Have you ever had to sleep on the couch because your bed mate had a permanent case of dry mouth dragon breath? Or perhaps you were the one suffering from a bad case of halitosis. Chances are pretty high as we hit the dry winter season that you can sympathize. And truth be told when I get a bit of a cold and have to breathe through my mouth the whole night I even puff out a cloud that curls my own toes.

Vita-Myr Zinc Plus Xtra for sale

Often times bad breath is a result of periodontal disease (or gum disease to those of us not versed in dentist speak), gingivitis or just plain morning dry mouth. Without getting into a rather disgusting explanation, in all the above cases bacteria is the culprit.

So what is one to do to cure bad breath naturally and more importantly find a natural remedy for periodontal disease which causes bad breath?

I may have discovered a product that is the salvation for those of us suffering from periodontal disease, gingivitis, bleeding gums, canker sores, plain old bad breath or surprisingly even cavities themselves. I stumbled upon Vita-Myr recently and based on the testimonials I was excited to give it a try. Vita-Myr makes a line of Zinc-Plus all natural herbal toothpastes and mouthwash that sound nothing short of amazing.

The story behind the creation of Vita-Myr Herbal products is very inspiring. Robert Takhtalian at the age of only 44 had periodontal disease so bad that his teeth were loose (the Tooth Fairy was on her way kind of loose) and the only thing his dentist could do was remove the teeth. As you can imagine that didn't go over well with Robert or his wife Yvonne so they spent a year researching and developing natural remedies for periodontal disease. That research resulted in a vitamin, mineral and Herb combination that could be used in a mouthwash. After that year he had no sores in his mouth, no bleeding, no bad breath and his teeth had tightened up in his gums to the point that he could eat anything including chewing gum and even apples. That kind of natural cure is amazing in this age of fad products, but his story isn't the only inspiring tale being shared. Read more amazing results here.

We've been trying the Vita-Myr mouthwash, original formula toothpaste and the new Zinc-Plus Xtra with CoQ10 and Xylitol (which includes a whole bevy of additional curative benefits) for a couple weeks now, and while we won't know if it aids in curing periodontal disease until our next check ups it certainly helps in a few areas so far - including that nasty dry mouth morning breath.

First off Vita-Myr leaves your teeth feeling squeaky clean with a pleasant fresh breath. One of the main ingredients is clove oil so if you like clove you'll love these products. If you aren't a fan of clove try the mouthwash first it has a milder clove flavor - or you can give the all natural Vita-Myr orange flavored kids toothpaste a shot - that will be the next one we try since our kids think the clove is too "spicy". The clove is also anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory which helps in curing periodontal disease. Another key gum disease fighting ingredient is Myrrh (yes as in Frankincense and Myrrh). Gum inflammation and bleeding is also reduced by folic acid - which helps fight plaque as well.

The fourth key ingredient in the mouthwash and toothpastes is zinc. Zinc also has anti-bacterial properties, inhibits plaque growth, reduces wound healing time and eliminates VSC's (volatile sulfur compounds) which is a key factor in causing bad breath. One of the benefits of the Vita-Myr products I have noticed is a boost to my immune system which can also be attributed to zinc and the overall bad bacteria fighting properties of all the natural ingredients. A week after starting on the products I had the beginning signs of a cold - being surrounded on all sides by sick co-workers and family it is hard to avoid, but avoid it I did. A result of using Vita-Myr? Quite possibly so, as far as curing periodontal disease naturally we'll have to see. I'll do a follow up post in a few months when I have another visit to the 'ol dentist. Until then ... I intend to keep using my Vita-Myr.

Update: I've been using Vita-Myr toothpase and mouthwash for a couple years now and I do have to say it works great for me - I always get glowing comments on my gum health every time I visit the dentist. I don't know if Vita-Myr will work for everyone but I have seen good results.

    I hope this article will be reached by those people with teeth problems. Thank you for sharing these natural innovations.

  2. OralMax Gum Disease Treatment can help you with bleeding gums, inflammation, sensitivity and dental mobility. Can help stop bone loss and reduce the dental mobility from grade 2 to grade 0 (Miller’s Classification).
    All this thanks to the tannin acids (astringent) naturally obtained from different quercus species evaluated and recognized as an effective substance against bleeding gums, inflammation and dental mobility in diabetic and non-diabetic patients.

    Is there any treatment I can use for my pets. They seem to have developed bad breath recently and I have no idea what to use.

  4. That’s a good question, I haven’t looked into natural doggie breath improving toothpastes. Since Vita-Myr uses all natural ingredients perhaps you could use it for pets as well – I’d recommend not using your toothbrush though. 🙂 To be safe you could look up the ingredients and see if any would not be safe for dogs.

  5. Tribulus Terrestris

    Fabulous post written by you author..Eating sugar,onion,doing smoking etc are the main causes behind the bad breath…I really like the post here on Vita-Myr for bad breath..

  6. Where can I buy this? I’ve been looking everywhere in OH but I can’t find any.

    • Thanks for stopping by Jenny. They sell it on Amazon or directly on their site – the price varies on Amazon sometimes you can get it for less other times it is cheaper directly from Vita-Myr. Good luck! 🙂

  7. This is definitely a good product. I will recommend this to my clients and to my friends , thanks for posting this .

  8. Bad breath is a serious problem and I think this product is great because it is created by one who experienced the problem. It is a great testimony and I will surely be recommending this if ever i chance on one who has this problem.

  9. Thanks for sharing your personal experience online Chris. I’m about to place an order for mouthwash and toothpaste. Just wondering, if you have any update on your periodontal status since your original post? I hope these products are helping.

    • Hi Sheri, thanks for stopping by. I’ve had great luck with Vita-myr – the periodontal disease I had starting has halted and reversed itself – I have “very healthy gums” according to the dentist. 🙂

  10. Sounds good! Maybe its just enough to repair those problem areas with the gums. I’ll have to try this. Thanks

  11. Hi Chris,

    You had a great post. I totally like the Vita-Myr products. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Good post, Chris. I’d also like to point out that Vita-Myr does not had SLS (Sodium laurel sulfate) which can dry out the lining of the mouth and be an irritant. If you have problems with frequent canker sores, switching to an SLS-free toothpaste can really help.

  13. I bought this toothpaste. It makes your mouth feels so CLEAN, and the clean feeling lasts throughout the day, too. Other main brand toothpastes give you an overpowering mint taste in your mouth, and then you don’t want to eat anything after so you can keep the mint taste. With this toothpaste, it doesn’t matter. As far as the whitening goes… well I’m not sure it does, but I have noticed a tiny, subtle change, and I didn’t buy this toothpaste for the whitening properties anyways, that was just an added perk. I think I will keep using this toothpaste! I love the fresh taste that is not too minty. 🙂

  14. An experience with someone who has really bad mouth odor is just unforgettable. But on the part of the person, it might be humiliating and can be considered a great problem once neglected.

    Hmmm…maybe it’s time to switch from aquafresh.
