Peri-Q-Gel for Healthy Gums (1 month supply / 60 softgels)
Peri-Q-Gel® A POWERFUL Anti-Oxidant formula for Healthy Gums
Peri-Q-Gel®, (also distributed as Perio-Vite Ultra), is a powerful antioxidant formula which contains Q-Gel®, the highly bioavailable form of coenzyme Q10, along with vitamins, in a synergistic formula to help promote healthy gums. Q-Gel® is superior to powder filled formulations and oil suspensions of CoQ10 with regard to bioavailability and physiologic effect as studies have shown that this form of CoQ10 results in higher (about 3-fold higher) blood levels. Peri-Q-Gel® is free of sugars, artificial colors and sugar alcohols.
Two softgels of Peri-Q-Gel® supply:
Coenzyme Q-10 – 30 mg (ubidecarenone) (U.S. Patent No. 6, 056, 971)
Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like powerful antioxidant nutrient naturally found in every cell in our body. It is necessary for the production of cellular energy, which is essential for every single process of life.
Numerous scientific studies have indicated the need for Coenzyme Q10 containing supplements for prevention and successful treatment of disorders associated with the gums or other supporting structures of the teeth. An adequate supply of Coenzyme Q10 ensures efficient energy production and tissue oxygenation for healing and repair of periodontal tissue. Coenzyme Q10 also boosts the immune system to help fight infections. Periodontal disease is the major cause of adult tooth loss and reported to be second only to the common cold as the most prevalent infectious ailment in the United States. It affects 60 percent of young adults and 90 percent of individuals over the age of 65. Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) is the early stage of periodontal disease which often requires surgery and results in eventual loss of teeth.
Research studies have shown that the gingival tissue of a majority of patients with periodontal disease is deficient in Coenzyme Q10. There is very impressive research demonstrating the "extraordinary" healing power of Coenzyme Q10 supplements in regard to periodontal disease. Health experts believe that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation should not only be used as a sole treatment for periodontitis, but also in combination with traditional non-surgical periodontal therapy.
Vitamin A (as palmitate) – 2500 IU
Vitamin A is needed for healing gum tissue. Deficiency of Vitamin A predisposes individuals to periodontal disease as it is associated with abnormal cell structures in the periodontium, inflammatory infiltration and degeneration, periodontal pocket formation, plaque formation and increased susceptibility to infection. Vitamin A is not only necessary for collagen synthesis and wound healing but also promotes the body’s ability to fight infection by enhancing various immune system functions.
Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Palmitate) (Lipid Soluble) – 13 mg
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is vital for maintaining the integrity and immunocompetence of the periodontal membrane and collagen matrix. Bleeding gums and gingivitis are classical symptoms of severe Vitamin C deficiency (Scurvy). Vitamin C has remarkable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory functions and even subclinical or marginal deficiency of this nutrient can delay wound healing. The positive response to Vitamin C supplementation in conditions associated with injury to periodontal tissue has been shown in many experimental studies.
Ascorbyl Palmitate is a lipid (fat) soluble form of Vitamin C, which might more effectively function to block free radicals in the lipid portions of the cell.
Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl acetate USP/NF) – 6 IU
The powerful antioxidant effects of Vitamin E are essential for protection against the damaging effects of free radicals on periodontal tissue. Vitamin E is especially beneficial in decreasing wound-healing time. Supplementation with this nutrient may also be helpful if silver fillings are present, as mercury depletes the tissues of antioxidant enzymes, which provide protection against harmful free radicals.
Folate (folic acid) – 800 mcg
Folic Acid supplements have been shown to reduce gingival inflammation. This B-vitamin has not only been demonstrated to bind plaque-derived toxins but also reduce color changes associated with periodontal tissue, bleeding tendency and plaque scores. Folic Acid supplementation may be particularly useful for pregnant women, birth-control-pill users as well as other conditions associated with exaggerated gingival inflammatory response due to "end organ" Folate deficiency.
Zinc (as zinc oxide) – 5 mg
Zinc is needed to enhance immune function, prevent infection, and promote healing. The extensive beneficial effects of zinc in maintaining healthy periodontal tissue have been clearly established through its numerous functions including antioxidant activity, collagen synthesis, membrane stabilization, wound healing, inhibition of plaque growth and immune system enhancement.
For additional protection of your gums: 1) brush your teeth twice daily using a soft bristle tooth brush and a toothpaste formulated to protect gums (eg: Colgate Total® or Listerine Essential Care™) and use dental floss routinely. 2) Rinse after brushing with a mouthwash formulated to prevent gingivitis (eg: Original Listerine®). 3) Increase intake of fruits and vegetables. 4) Drink 8 glasses of water daily. See your dentist at least twice a year for a check-up. There is no substitute for good dental hygiene, balanced nutrition, and a routine dental exam.
