Chlorine Dioxide Mouthwash
The Only Genuine Chlorine Dioxide Mouthwash: ProFresh
Research studies have proven that bad breath is caused by bacteria that live on the back of the tongue called anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria feed on protein leftovers in your mouth producing the volatile sulfur compounds that are responsible for bad breath. These compounds are easily destroyed by chlorine dioxide (Cl02) which has long been used to safely disinfect and deodorize water supplies worldwide. Chlorine dioxide attacks the volatile sulfur gases in your mouth, neutralizing them and the smell they produce. Chlorine dioxide mouthwash is extremely effective in eliminating bad breath. ProFresh's U.S. patent prohibits any other mouth rinse from including chlorine dioxide at levels known to stop bad breath. Therefore, it is the only genuine chlorine dioxide mouthwash.
Don't Be Fooled By Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide Mouthwash
Stabilized chlorine dioxide mouthwash was introduced in the 1970's and claimed the benefits of chlorine dioxide without any supporting research. These stabilized chlorine dioxide mouth rinses contain a chemical called sodium chlorite which is a salt used in the manufacture of chlorine dioxide. Because it is a chemical precursor of chlorine dioxide, sodium chlorite is also called "stabilized chlorine dioxide" despite the fact that it contains no chlorine dioxide at all. Today we still have stabilized chlorine dioxide mouth rinses such as Oxyfresh® and Dr. Katz's Therabreath® which are marketed with claims as though they contain chlorine dioxide although they do not.
Recent studies confirm that the effect of stabilized chlorine dioxide mouthwash on bad breath is insignificant compared to ProFresh Chlorine Dioxide Oral Rinse!
