Always believed that sweets is one of the causes of dental caries. Sugar is a nutrient medium for bacteria living in the mouth and on the surface of the gums. However, the company Organobalance GmbH presented the candy without sugar. In addition, it is composed of dead bacteria, which reduce the number of pathogenic flora in the oral cavity.
Food, especially sweet, is a breeding ground for bacteria, says Medical News Today. The bacteria multiply, infect the tooth enamel and cause cavities. The main causative agent of this disease is the Mutans streptococci. Part of candy are killed Lactobacillus paracasei, which reduce the level of pathogenic bacteria by binding and reduce their activity. The complex formed is washed off with tooth and saliva is excreted through the digestive tract.
Already carried out the first tests on volunteers, which proved enough of one to two milligrams of the drug in the candy, to significantly reduce the number of Lactobacillus paracasei in the oral cavity. During the study, volunteers were divided into those in a day and a half eaten 5 candy with 1 mg of active substance, those who ate the same number with 2 mg of the substance in one sweet and the control group. The best indicators of the health of the oral cavity was observed in the first group after the first candy.
