Vitamin D really helps my mouth a lot

  1. I have been brushing my teeth with a tooth powder to which I add Vitamin D powder
    • powder consists of charcoal to whiten teeth and bentonite clay
  2. I use the same vitamin D augmented powder on brush while cleaning between the teeth
  3. I use a vitamin D mouthwash weekly (dissolve Vitamin D in water)

Just raising my vitamin D levels to 100 ng did not help my teeth/gums (6 years)
Finally, I found that in-mouth (topical) vitamin D helped – my gums and teeth are now the best of my entire life
   I happen to have Vitamin B12 power - I will try adding it to my Vitamin D tooth powder

BACKGROUND: Elderly people are at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency.

AIMS: We studied the ability of vitamin B12-enriched toothpaste vs. placebo to increase vitamin B12 status in elderly subjects.

METHODS: We conducted a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled intervention in 103 elderly subjects. Serum concentrations of vitamin B12, holotranscobalamin (holoTC), methylmalonic acid (MMA), and plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) were measured at baseline and after 3 months.

92 subjects met the inclusion criteria, completed the 3 months study, and were included in the data analysis. After the intervention, concentrations of vitamin B12 were higher [mean (SD) = 368 (123) vs. 295 (123) pmol/L; p = 0.005] and holoTC tended to be higher [112 (48) vs. 91 (68) pmol/L; p = 0.088] in the vitamin B12 group compared with the placebo group. The changes of serum vitamin B12 [54 (74) vs. 3 (60) pmol/L, p < 0.001], holoTC [21 (34) vs. 2 (32) pmol/L, p = 0.007], and tHcy [- 0.9 (2.3) vs. 0.3 (1.9) µmol/L, p = 0.010] were significantly different between the intervention groups. Mean percentage increase of serum vitamin B12 (+ 23% corresponds to + 54 pmol/L) in the vitamin B12 toothpaste group suggests that the intervention had provided an additional daily intake of approximately + 7 µg oral B12. Common diseases and drugs did not predict the change of blood markers in the vitamin group. No side effects were observed.

CONCLUSIONS: The toothpaste enriched with 100 µg cyanocobalamin/g has increased vitamin B12 status and can thus be used for preventing vitamin B12 depletion in elderly people. The trial was registered at ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02679833.
