Halitosis, or bad breath, can be caused by a number of factors. It may indicate a local exposure to malodorous foods, an infection or a deeper more systemic concern. The odour itself relates to volatile compounds that have a high sulfur content and are produced by gram negative bacteria on the tongue, or between and around teeth. Halitosis can be transient (such as from sulfuric foods, tobacco products, or dry mouth) or it can persist. Persistent halitosis can indicate a systemic or local infection, post nasal drip, GERD, kidney disease, or even liver failure, though systemic diseases only account for 10% of these cases.
Cleaning the tongue, by brushing or with mouthwashes, can remove some of the offensive compounds (food remnants, dead cells etc.) that the bacteria feed on, clear away bacteria themselves, or mask the odour for a period of time. But treatment of the underlying cause is ultimately best practice. One of the most effective treatments is to ensure that the oral microbiota is healthy. Fresh Biotics is a source of probiotics that helps to promote a health oral microbiome and supports gastrointestinal health.

AOR Vitamin D3 50 ml ChildRegular price $39.45 Sale price $31.56 Save $7.89
Vitamin D is best known for its role in aiding with the absorption of calcium from the digestive system and promoting bone formation, but it has many other actions including balancing immune function and supporting mood. Vitamin D is synthesized by the skin following exposure to ultraviolet rays from sunlight, but many people do not spend enough time outdoors and become deficient in this essential vitamin. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to numerous health conditions including osteoporosis, rickets, autoimmune conditions, diabetes, cancer, SAD (seasonal affective disorder), chronic pain and frequent infections.
There is an obvious need to supplement with extra vitamin D especially in the elderly and children, during the winter, and for people with chronic diseases. Vitamin D3 is the most effective form of supplemental vitamin D (compared to D2, a less absorbable form).
Medium-chain triglycerides and olive oil.
Take six drops (0.2 mL) daily with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
AOR Vegan Omega 3 120 VSgsRegular price $55.45 Sale price $44.36 Save $11.09
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, which plays many important roles in heart health. It is not synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained from dietary sources. To maximize EPA and DHA in the body, both fats should be consumed in their “converted” forms, such as in fish or microalgae oil, as the body is inefficient at converting other plant-based omega-3 fats into the longer chain EPA and DHA.
EPA is the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid associated with downregulating the cytokines, which contribute to chronic inflammation, heart disease, neurological diseases and joint pain. Algae is an especially potent form of omega-3, as other vegan sources such as chia or flax risk exposure to lignans and other anti-nutrients which can interfere with mineral absorption.
