The key ingredients of the Sigone toothpaste is micronized pure Zeolite from volcanic ash and Hydroxyapatite. Zeolite can greatly remove plaque and also absorb plaque-inducing calcium in the saliva through ionic exchange. It also cuts bacterial growth and acid production, 2 major causes of dental plaque and oral infections. On top of that, it can also combat bad breath.
Our tooth enamel is almost all hydroxyapatite, a natural ingredient of our bone and teeth. It repairs our tooth enamel, giving it their rigidity and prevents demineralisation (teeth erosion). Dentists use this mineral to repair serious cavities and eliminate tooth sensitivity in humans.
Used in the medical fields, these 2 specialised ingredients are rare in mass-market toothpastes for human due to costs, but they are currently the most advanced oral care ingredients used by professional dentists.
Zeolite as a Health Supplement
Zeolite is a mineral extracted from volcanic rocks, and it takes millions of years for it to form. It is believed to be formed over 300 million years ago, and is also one of the oldest minerals in the world.
Zeolite is clinically proven to draw out chemicals, toxins, heavy metals, pollutants and impurities like urea and ammonia from the body. It even fights harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi in the mouth and gut with its powerful antimicrobial properties.
Toxins and pollutants enter our skin and bodies all the time, through food, water, air and household items. Over time, they can accumulate in the body and wreak havoc on our health by impairing brain and gut function, causing oxidative damage to our bodies. This can suppress our immune system, making our bodies vulnerable to pathogens and prone to health problems. It is important to cleanse and detox regularly and Zeolite offers a safe and natural way to do just that.
The Zeolite toothpaste is good for both cats & dogs. However, it contains sorbitol in trace quantities. In very rare cases, smaller dogs and cats with weak tummies may be sensitive to sorbitol and may experience vomiting and diarrhoea, especially when taken in large amounts. Sorbitol is a sugar substitute that occurs naturally in some fruits. It is an ingredient commonly found in mainstream commercial pet foods, treats and pet toothpastes.
