In December, 2001, we announced the amazing results that customers were reporting by combining the effects of AO III Herbal Toothpaste with H3O as an after-care mouthwash. We, ourselves, had used it, noting that it had such a thorough cleaning effect that you when finished using the two together, it felt like you'd just come back from the dentist.
The use of natural compounds that comprise a "mild" escharotic to make a dentifrice was not new. One of my mentors, Dr. Russell Jordan, a co-founder of Vipont Pharmaceutical, knew years earlier that zinc chloride / bloodroot combinations were far more effective in preventing gum disease than toothpaste formulas on the market -- then or now. (U.S. Patents providing formulae for the effective treatment of gingivitis using this combination include No. 4,160,821 (1978) and No. 4,335,110 (1980) More details are provided in Chapter 1 of Meditopia).
With this knowledge in hand, we introduced our own dentifrice in the first edition of the Ashwin (Oct. 2001), followed with the announcement of the AO III / H3O combination. (Our formula contains 1% pure bloodroot -- not the alkaloid extract, sanguinarine, which was found to cause oral lesions -- a claim we found to be dubious, but observed in our formulary work, nonetheless. It is our incidental observation that whole herbs normally work better than concentrated, isolated ingredients derived therefrom . . . which is, in part, a cornerstone of modern pharmacology.)
Over the years, we've watched as it has become nearly impossible to obtain "clean" formulas. In fact, since the purchase of Vipont Pharmaceutical by Colgate years ago, the formula has been revised more than once -- but still, not without the addition of the flouride.
Since our introduction of Lugol's in 2000, we have warned about effects of 'halogen displacement' -- but even more evidence has come out about the harmful effects of flouride consumption. Flouride has a host of toxicological effects and according to the Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products is "more poisonous than lead and just slightly less poisonous than arsenic." (It's inclusion into nearly all commercially available dentifrice products can be explained by reading the lead article in September, 2009 Ashwin -- more to the point here, see YouTube Video, The Dangers of Fluoride & Water Fluoridation (11:00).)
In a truly "free market," you have a right to choose the best product -- free of all corporate propaganda. The choice of Alpha Omega III Herbal Toothpaste is the simple choice to clean your teeth with a formula using a long history of effective oral care and treatment against, and prevention of, gingivitis.
Use as Mild Escharotic (diagnostic) : Our Toothpaste can also be used (if approved in your area) as a "detector" for oral cancers of the mouth. Any cancers in the mouth will "react" to the presence of the dentifrice, manifesting as a light, but deep, stinging sensation. If the mouth is free of any malignancy (which is the case for the vast majority of the population) you will not feel this. In fact, except for its extraordinary cleaning action, the experience will not be different from using any other dentifrice.
Ingredients: Calcium carbonate, sorbitol, Cansema® Nuwais (zinc chloride USP, chapparal [Larrea maxicata and/or Larrea divericata], glycerine, nuwais, bloodroot (sanguinaria canadensis)], and stevia (extract of Stevia rebaudiana L.).
Instructions: The new, updated version of Alpha Omega III Herbal Toothpaste comes in a plastic jar -- as shown above. (It has been reformulated to be more effective and better tasting.) To use, simply dip the bristle-end of your toothpaste into the jar, sufficient to lightly coat -- and then brush as you normally would with any other toothpaste. Immediately, you will notice that our toothpaste is more astringent compared to other teeth cleaning aids now on the market. In addition to brushing the teeth, we recommend that you brush the top and base of the tongue, gums, and inside of the cheeks.
The result is an experience of "cleaner teeth" and fresh breath. By simply passing your tongue over your teeth, you will notice that your teeth "feel" extraordinarily clean -- much like the way your teeth feel after having visited the dentist.
For those who find brushing with AO III Herbal Toothpaste "too medicinal," we recommend that you brush with our product twice a week . . . and use ordinarily Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) as your regular "after meal" teeth-cleaning aid during the rest of the week.

Pharmacology has long sought to solve one problem that almost universally comes with age --- the degeneration of young, healthy gums. The use of zinc chloride, chaparral, and bloodroot in a specially blended base is the secret of this powerful dentifrice. (For those of you are interested in the history of this incredible product, see the article in our October, 2001 Ashwin --- and to learn about the synergistic effect of this product with H3O, see our December, 2001 article.)
Since the formula is astringent, Alpha Omega 3 will "feel" different when used than will other toothpaste products. Your mouth will feel "dried out" while you are brushing, but when you finish brushing, most of our customers report that your entire mouth and teeth feel very clean --- as you've just gotten out of the dentist's chair. Even hard to dissolve "calculus" is reported by many users to be easily removed with this product, in conjunction with the oral use of diluted H3O.
We cannot formally make any claims with respect to the impact that Alpha Omega 3 Dentifrice will have on you personally if you have gingivitis or periodontal disease.
But you can.

" ... just a quick note to thank you for a wonderful product! It works like no other toothpaste on earth. My feeling is that more people would use it if you could make it taste as good as some of Colgate's products. Not that it tastes that bad - just not as pleasant. On the flip side I've never used anything that removes tartar and leaves your mouth with a clean feeling like your product does. I have noticed that you've discontinued some products over time. My hope is that down the road this one doesn't become one of them ..."

"I wanted to let you know what happened in our family after the toothpaste and mouthwash arrived. We have a nine year old granddaughter who has never been one to want to brush her teeth and so it has routinely been a matter of contention, cajoling, and close monitoring to get that to happen for her. The toothpaste arrived after my husband and I had left on a trip away from home, and my daughter was staying at our house while we were gone, so I told her to open and use it to see what it was like.
My granddaughter, who we have nicknamed Kiwi, tried it that first night, and later was found in the kitchen eating a banana. When my daughter expressed to her the fact that she had already brushed her teeth and now would have to do it again (expecting resistance), Kiwi responded, "That's all right mom, I just wanted an excuse to have to brush my teeth again." My daughter said she was totally shocked by this unexpected response and almost fell over.
Then last night after we had arrived back home, my daughter and Kiwi went back to their own house for the night. This morning my daughter informed me that Kiwi was upset that her mom had not brought the toothpaste home with them!!!!! Oh my, what a change this is, to have Kiwi asking to brush her teeth!!!! So I sent a jar over there this morning along with the container of diluted mouthwash my daughter had already made up, and we will plan another order soon.
I suppose you are used to hearing this kind of story, but it has been a truly amazing experience for us. Needless to say we are so grateful for having found your dental care products and for the change in attitude this has effected for Kiwi. I am grateful for how patiently and thoroughly you answered all my questions, and I am very pleased to be using these products myself as well. How wonderful to have such clean teeth!
Thank you, thank you!!! :-)
