The earliest lifeforms on the earth were microscopic organisms/microbes that were formed about 3.7 billion years ago. The ubiquitous microbes- good, bad and neutral, are found in our body as well. There are trillions of microorganisms, which exceed human cells by 10 to 1 and covering around 1-3% of the total human mass.
These microbes, knowingly or unknowingly, play a key role in our life. Still, even today, we are trying to comprehend how many of these microbes are beneficial for us. The study about gut microbes, which were discovered in the 1800s, is always prominent. In the late 19th century, the study about gut microbes and their advantages reached its pinnacle.
Like gut microbiota, oral microbiota also plays a vital role in human life. In 1683, a scientist named Anton van Leeuwenhoek first discovered microorganisms with a microscope. One of the first samples Leeuwenhoek examined was his own dental plaque or biofilm.
Since then, microorganisms began to pique the interest of researchers. But the studies on the beneficial microbiota were only in nascent stage. Albeit human beings used to consider the microbes only as enemies, they have started to learn the brighter side of them due to the development of science and technology.
Now let’s take a look into the less explored oral microbiome. The community of microorganisms present in the human oral cavity is referred to as the oral microbiome/ oral microflora /oral microbiota. The oral microbiome has more than 700 species of microbes. The oral microbiota of an individual is a complex community with about 200 - 300 microbial species. According to a study, about 30% of the oral microbial species are still uncultured.
Although microbes are found in the oral cavity since an individual’s birth, a significant bacterial population in the oral cavity is recognized only after teeth eruption. Even though a number of them have pathogenic behavior and cause diseases, many of the microbes provide a protective function for the host. It is found that in infants, the initial formation of Streptococcus Sanguinis delays the colonization of Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria responsible for dental caries.
When the equilibrium of the microbiome is maintained, some species like Veillonella parvula are deemed to be protective of tooth enamel. But lifestyle habits like smoking, consumption of carbohydrates and sugar, high-stress levels etc. can disrupt the equilibrium of the microbiome. These further cause formation of plaque and other oral diseases. So, cleaning teeth and maintaining oral hygiene becomes even more essential. Therefore, it’s very important to choose toothpaste and all other oral care products that do not affect the natural balance of the oral microbiome.
Edinora, a premium Ayurvedic toothpaste based on the latest oral microbiology findings, helps protect mouth cells, taste buds and beneficial oral microbes. Edinora has been formulated after extensive research of about 23 years. An ayurvedic toothpaste with high quality natural ingredients, Edinora eliminates the pathogenic microbes and ensures a safe environment for the beneficial microbes, thereby protects the natural equilibrium of the oral cavity.
As recent studies also reveal the origin of systemic diseases associated with oral microbes, Edinora firmly believes that oral microbial equilibrium is pivotal for the overall health of an individual.
Edinora has the recognition of AYUSH, the higher authority responsible for propagation of indigenous and alternative medicine systems in India. This premium product has successfully undergone tests like in vitro cytotoxicity, in vitro wound healing, acute oral toxicity, subacute oral toxicity, chemical analysis, and heavy metal presence etc.
Edinora is a sublime ayurvedic product that has drummed up ample support from scientific community. It helps protect the beneficial microbes and thereby help improve the natural body immunity. So, it’s time to embrace this latest oral care product for keeping your teeth as well as body in fine fettle.
