What people are saying.
Discovered at Expo West and so glad I did!
My gums have never been cleaner! Love that the brush gets the ENTIRE mouth!
Useless to me. I would never keep my toothbrush in a case, fearing it would grow mold. Even when traveling, I keep my toothbrush wrapped in a small, clean, dry towel. After all the fuss about the Big Brush not being “green” and then redesigned with a replaceable head (which many of us did not care for), we then received a free “ungreen” case which many of us will never use.
While I appreciate the generosity of Radius to add a free gift to the order, I'm not excited about floss coated with Erythritol. Here's why (this from CNN):
A sugar replacement called erythritol – used to add bulk or sweeten stevia, monkfruit and keto reduced-sugar products – has been linked to blood clotting, stroke, heart attack and death, according to a new study.
“The degree of risk was not modest,” said lead study author Dr. Stanley Hazen, director of the Center for Cardiovascular Diagnostics and Prevention at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute.
People with existing risk factors for heart disease, such as diabetes, were twice as likely to experience a heart attack or stroke if they had the highest levels of erythritol in their blood, according to the study, published Monday in the journal Nature Medicine.
“If your blood level of erythritol was in the top 25% compared to the bottom 25%, there was about a two-fold higher risk for heart attack and stroke. It’s on par with the strongest of cardiac risk factors, like diabetes,” Hazen said.
Additional lab and animal research presented in the paper revealed that erythritol appeared to be causing blood platelets to clot more readily. Clots can break off and travel to the heart, triggering a heart attack, or to the brain, triggering a stroke.
“This certainly sounds an alarm,” said Dr. Andrew Freeman, director of cardiovascular prevention and wellness at National Jewish Health, a hospital in Denver, who was not involved in the research.
“There appears to be a clotting risk from using erythritol,” Freeman said. “Obviously, more research is needed, but in an abundance of caution, it might make sense to limit erythritol in your diet for now.”
Like the free gift but I’d also like a menthol free version.
