After the age of three, most dogs and cats manifest some form of dental disease. This can be prevented by regular professional non anesthetic pet teeth cleaning and at home care. Some options for pet parents to use with their pets include brushing the teeth, applying pet dental gels or sprays, dental chews, dental treats, and Magic Dental Powder.

The Magic Dental Powder is an easy method of preventing plague build up. It’s a supplement you can add to your pet’s food.

What’s Inside Magic Dental Powder?

Ascophyllum Nodosum

Commonly known as Brown Seaweed, Ascophyllum Nodosum has been shown to significantly improve dental health. There have been a number of different studies conducted on Ascophyllum Nodosum, and the results are intriguing. Supplementing the diet with this ingredient has shown:

  • Up to a 30% reduction in plaque and 35% reduction in tartar. (In humans, a more than 50% reduction of tartar has been observed)

  • Up to a 50% reduction in gingival bleeding.

  • Significant increases to overall oral health, across numerous factors.

In short, this ingredient is highly promising, and there is a good amount of research that has shown positive effects. If you would like more information, here are four relatively diverse studies wherein this information was derived (more can be found online, but we won’t bore you with an entire novel over a single ingredient!):

Green Seaweed

Ocean flora (plants harvested from the ocean) contain a wonderful diversity of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. While we aim to boost the immune system specifically, the wide array of vitamins and minerals available in seaweed contribute to better overall health body function.

It is also important to remember these multi-vitamin and multi-mineral ingredients help us move away from nutritional deficiencies, which can impede an animal’s ability to maintain good dental hygiene – even with a dental product onboard.

Main takeaways:

- High in vitamins and minerals.

- Contributes to better overall health and body function.

- Moves us away from nutritional deficiencies.

Reishi (mushroom)

Welcome to the wonderful world of mushrooms! Reishi is a wonderful ingredient that maintains a wide variety of health benefits. While we won’t explore all of the benefits of reishi (there are many), we have decided to include reishi because of it’s immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties.

At this point, you know why boosting the immune system may lead to better dental health, however a large piece of the puzzle is the recovery from bacterial (pathogenic) damage. When bacteria invade the gumline, it causes inflammation – the condition is commonly known as gingivitis. Anti-inflammatory agents help speed the healing of swollen tissue by reducing excess inflammation.

Main takeaways:

- A strong anti-inflammatory agent, which helps the recovery of swollen tissue.

- A powerful immune booster

Digestive Enzymes

  • Protease (protein digestion)

  • Amylase (carbohydrate digestion)

  • Lipase (fat digestion)

  • Cellulase (cellulose digestion)

It is important to understand that our dental product contains digestive enzymes (so much so, that it’s directly in the title of the product). Digestive enzymes help us break down nutrients so that they can absorb into the body easier, and prevents food from entering the small intestine undigested.

The immune system spends majority of its effort in the digestive tract, ensuring that the bacteria in our gut remains in check. Undigested food can contribute to a higher level of unwanted bacteria in the digestive tract which puts more strain on our immune system. In other words, a healthier digestive tract leads to a healthier immune system.

Digestive enzymes can help with many common problems:

  • Excessive and/or bad smelling gas

  • Excessive and/or bad smelling belching

  • Loose or inconsistent stool

  • Overly hard stool or constipation

  • Ingredient sensitivities

Main takeaways:

- Helps pets digest nutrients so that it can be absorbed into the body easier.

- Promotes a healthier digestive tract, and therefore a stronger immune system.

- Can solve many unwanted digestive issues. Can solve many unwanted digestive issues.

- Don’t forget that this applies to their pet food, too: it helps breakdown the food and increase absorption!

Chicory Root

With the understanding that a digestive health and immune health run hand-in-hand, chicory root feeds the favorable bacteria in our small intestine and helps promote a healthier microbiome. When the digestive tract is in a better state of balance, nutrients are more easily broken down and absorbed, pets experience less gas and digestive upset, and the immune system spends less effort culling bad bacteria from entering the body.

For those interested in going the extra mile, chicory root is chalked full of inulin, a source of fructooligosaccharides or FOS for short. FOS compounds are considered prebiotics (which is Latin for “before life”), and the favorable bacteria in our gut are called probiotics (which is Latin for “for life”). Prebiotics are nutrients that allow the probiotics to flourish within our digestive system – in other words, prebiotics are the food for probiotics.

Main takeaways:

- A source of inulin, which helps the favorable bacteria flourish in our digestive tract.

- A balanced digestive tract promotes a healthier immune system.

Mixed Tocopherols (“Vitamin E”)

Fun fact: at one time in history, Vitamin E was thought to be just a single compound. It was later found that Vitamin E actually came in eight different varieties, similar to Vitamin B. Since then, “mixed tocopherols” has been used in manufacturing to indicate that a mixture of Vitamin E compounds has been included in the formula – though, I would have preferred if they were named like B vitamins: E1, E2, E3, E4…etc.

Mixed Tocopherols are a great source of antioxidants, and have incredible antimicrobial properties. When added to a dry product they inhibit the growth of dangerous bacteria and fungi. This ingredient ensures that the nutrients in our product aren’t spoiled by the time they reach your pet’s bowl.

Note: Because of their pathogen-fighting properties, mixed tocopherols are known as “natural preservatives” and are fundamentally different than “artificial preservatives”. Without spending a tedious amount of time on this subject, just know that we prefer natural preservatives as they are safe (when used properly) and ethical (when used wisely).

Main takeaways:

- Rich in antioxidants

- A powerful antimicrobial which helps maintain “freshness”, and lessens the possibility of spoilage.

- A natural preservative.
