And bad health begins there, too! Almost everything we put in our bodies, for better or worse, has an effect. And it all starts in your mouth!

We all work hard to maintain our overall health – we go to the gym, eat well, listen to our doctors and take steps to manage our stress (or try!).  But have you ever thought that a little extra effort to maintain your oral health could affect your overall health? Probably not; but the connection between oral health and overall health is surprisingly strong.


Bacteria: Where it all begins. Bacteria in our mouths can cause infections, which can lead to inflammation and cause our gum tissue to break down. Over time, this can become a chronic problem and lead to gum diseases like gingivitis or periodontal disease.

Then it gets really sticky. Poor oral health has been linked to diabetes and heart disease, strokes, among other serious problems (check out the Mayo Clinic’s list). Why? Because when your gums break down, are infected or inflamed, your body responds (in come the white blood cells). This can trigger arterial inflammation or blockages (heart attack) or arterial plaque, which research has tied to strokes.

On the whole. Take a holistic approach to your health by starting where it all begins – your mouth. Primal Life Organics Dirty Mouth Boost Primal Gum Serum can help replenish the natural oils in your mouth – not just for your teeth, but for the health of your gums and mucous membranes, too.  The 11 essential oils that make up Dirty Mouth Boost help reduce the culprits (bacteria) in the mouth that lead to chronic inflammation, fungal and viral infections (cold sores), gingivitis and denture stomatitis (inflammation of the mouth).

Anti-what? Antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antiviral, antiseptic and anti-infection are just a few of the plusses of the oils found in Dirty Mouth Boost. Organic tea tree oil mixes with a stimulating blend of lemon, peppermint, clove, lavender and cinnamon with the anti-inflammatory properties of eucalyptus ad myrrh. Organic cypress serves as an astringent, antiseptic and a homeostatic to stop bleeding gums.

Seriously, what more can you ask for? Primal Life Organics offers Paleo, organic, and natural solutions for your overall health, all made from ingredients you can trust. If you haven’t heard from Kimberly, read her Dirty Mouth testimony here.
