Healthy Gums & Teeth


Healthy teeth and gums are important for our general health. Although there is a general perception that only calcium is important for healthy teeth, the fact is that the function of the teeth and gums depends on healthy collagen. Collagen forms an internal framework of the teeth on which calcium and other minerals are deposited. The structure of healthy gums depends on soft connective tissue made of collagen and other components. The health of the gums is important in protecting the base of each tooth thereby preventing formation of pockets where food may lodge creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Healthy gums contribute to healthy teeth.

It is a well known fact that bleeding gums are one of the primary symptoms of scurvy (severe deficiency of vitamins C). This points out the importance of optimum vitamin C intake for maintaining healthy gums and dental health. In addition to vitamin C other micronutrients play critical roles in healthy collagen formation in the body.

The combination of nutrients present in the Dr. Rath ProLysinC Formula supports healthy gums and formation of the biological foundation of healthy teeth.*

  • Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, L-lysine, and L-proline.

    Vitamin C: Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals. Unlike animals, humans do not produce vitamin C, so proper supplementation is vital for the health of connective tissue.

    L-lysine: An essential amino acid, is a building block of collagen. L-lysine helps maintain healthy connective tissue. L-lysine is not produced in the body and supplementation is necessary to help protect support of the body's connective tissue.

    L-proline: Another amino acid, is a building block of collagen that also strengthens the body's connective tissue. This nutrient is produced by the body in limited quantities, so additional supplementation is important to ensure the optimal production of collagen.
