LifeSource Vitamins

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums (gingivae), usually caused by bacteria. Periodontitis is a deeper and more serious inflammation of both the gingivae and tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth. Both common conditions are often progressive and can eventually result in loss of the underlying bone that supports the teeth. After age 30, periodontal disease is responsible for more tooth loss than are dental cavities. Severe periodontitis sometimes requires surgery to repair damaged gum tissue. In advanced stages of gingivitis, the gums recede, exposing the nerve roots, and the teeth may become loose. This may be an indication of periodontitis.


Prescription for Natural Cures by James F. Balch and Mark Stengler

Super Prescription #1 Folic Acid - LifeSource Products

A 0.1% solution of folic acid used as a mouth rinse (5 ml taken twice a day for 30-60 days) has been known to reduce gum inflammation and bleeding. The folic acid solution is rinsed in the mouth for one to five minutes and then spit out. Folic acid was also found to be effective when taken in capsule or tablet form (4 mg per day).
