Vingt introduces all-natural toothpaste and mouthwash infused with turmeric to promote whole body health.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Americans are in love with turmeric. And the proof is in the numbers. It’s been the top-selling herbal supplement in natural retail stores for four consecutive years with sales of almost $48 billion in 2016. Used for millennia in many cultures to prevent and treat many diseases and conditions, turmeric has now become widely known in the U.S. as being one of nature’s most potent anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, thanks to its active component, curcumin.
What may not be well known among consumers, however, is curcumin’s limited bioavailability. This means the proportion of curcumin that is able to enter the body’s bloodstream and have an active effect is limited. That is why many curcumin supplements are not considered very effective. For many turmeric lovers, that’s a tough pill to swallow.
The dentists who developed the newly launched line of Vingt oral care products realized that a toothbrush could be the key to unlocking curcumin’s real power. “Tissues in the mouth allow for maximum absorption of the unique formulations of curcumin that are in Vingt toothpaste and mouthwash”, said Dr. Michael Gulizio, Founder and CEO, Vingt. Vingt products feature the most concentrated form of curcumin available, a patent-pending formulation that, unlike other turmeric extracts that are bright yellow, is instead bright white (as well as flavourless) which makes it ideal for oral health applications.
“Consumers are demanding more from their oral health care products,” said Dr. Gulizio. “They want value-added, functional products and our mission has been to help meet these needs. Vingt products were developed not only to promote clean, healthy teeth and gums, but to benefit your whole body too.” In addition to curcumin, Vingt toothpaste and mouthwash include some of nature’s other healers: aloe vera provides soothing relief for gum irritation, xylitol (from birch trees) to increase moisture content of the mouth (and prevent dry mouth), and goji berries and grapeseed oil extract help prevent plaque and tartar buildup. Vingt products are also infused with a proprietary blend of 7 highly-potent essential oils to provide antioxidant benefits and long-lasting minty freshness.
Vingt also recognizes that consumers are increasingly opting for personal care products that are free from synthetic and harmful ingredients. Vingt products do not contain fluoride, sulfates, parabens, or artificial colors and sweeteners. Vingt toothpaste and mouthwash can be purchased online at vingtoralcare.com. They will also soon be available at select drugstores, health food stores and mass retailers nationwide.
Vingt is the world’s first oral care product line to contain a bioactive phytonutrient. Developed by dentists, Vingt oral products are infused with curcumin to help improve both oral and systemic health. The Vingt product line currently includes toothpaste and mouthwash, and plans for breath mints and new flavor profiles are coming soon. Vingt’s fluoride-free products are formulated with premium natural ingredients including aloe vera, goji berries, grapeseed oil, xylitol and calcium phosphate.
