Here’s the deal…
You’re most likely using toothpaste that is loaded with toxic ingredients even if you think you’re not (I even made this mistake). Which unfortunately, includes not only store-bought toothpastes but also “natural” toothpastes and toothpowders.
Good news is that there’s a solution.
So I’m not going to leave you hanging.
Note: this is by far my biggest and most important article ever. It’s unbelievable how toxic these products are and how many people are being tricked to use them. Along with how many people I admire promoting these products thinking they’re helping. So please read to the end and share with your loved ones.
What We’re Going To Cover
After spending $1,000’s of dollars and conducting dozens of laboratory tests, I found out a few shocking things. So here’s what we’ll talk about:
- Toxic ingredients in store-bought and Amazon toothpastes
- Why many fluoride-free and natural options are toxic
- What you should use to brush your teeth
So let’s get started…
Toxic Ingredients In Toothpaste
I don’t want to spend too much time on store-bought toothpastes for the simple reason they are garbage. These brands are filled with toxic ingredients that are ONLY included to increase profits, trick you into believing it’s working or to make it last longer.
Don’t believe me?
Grab your toothpaste and see if it has any of these ingredients:
- hydrated silica
- sodium saccharin
- titanium dioxide
- sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate
- macrogol 4000
- microplastics (from the container)
- aluminum (from the container)
- PEG-8, PEG/PPG
- artificial color (ex. blue 1, yellow 10)
- endocrine disruptors (ex. lavender)
Odds are, not only does it have one but it probably has several of them.
We all go out of our way thinking we’re making a good choice for our health but it does not do much if we drop fluoride, only to replace it with other toxic ingredients that have ZERO benefit for our teeth.
So long story short…
Avoid store-bought toothpaste.
Many Fluoride-Free / Natural Options Are TOXIC
I’m going to cut straight to the point.
Many fluoride-free and natural toothpastes and powders are just as bad, if not worse, than store-bought options. Sure you may not have many of the toxic ingredients we talked about above.
But these products are LOADED with…
And I mean large amounts.
Not good considering your mouth can absorb those heavy metals into the bloodstream.
Now the ingredients to blame are clays like bentonite clay, white kaolin clay, and diatomaceous earth which are used in many natural dental products. In fact, if you’re not using toxic store-bought toothpaste, you’re probably using toxic “natural” toothpaste/powders that have clay in it.
California’s Proposition 65 Warnings
This is the warning placed on every single clay product sold in California…
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m the “fluoride guy” so I’m as big of a skeptic of the government as they come…
But even a broken clock is right two times a day.
With that being said, I think at times the Prop 65 warning is a little crazy. But when it comes to clay which is NOT a natural thing to put IN your body, I think the Prop 65 warning makes sense. Especially when you know the type of heavy metals found inside the clay.
And I’m sure you know this by now, but heavy metals are linked with endless amounts of health issues (nervous system disorders, skin lesions, vascular damage, immune system dysfunction, birth defects, and cancer – just to name a few).
So why put them in our bodies?
It’s an unnecessary risk.
Test Results Of Various Types Of Clays
First I tested various types of clays that are popularly used for natural products.
And keep in mind, I tested all types of quality clays. From best known brands, to clays that were labeled “food grade” and even “pharmaceutical grade”. I also tested various top selling products to confirm their numbers too.
So I’ll quickly show you the results…
Note all results are reported in μg/g.
#1) Bentonite Clay
#2) White Kaolin Clay
#3) Diatomaceous Earth
As you can tell all the clays are LOADED with aluminum, numbers that are hard to believe. But not only that, they also commonly contain arsenic and lead which you should not be ever ingesting. Not to mention several other heavy metals like titanium and barium.
Makes no sense, right?
We’re trying to be healthy and these are the products sold to us?!?
What About Natural Dental Products?
It’s the same story, if not worse…
I tested very high quality clays.
But most of these brands are most likely trying to cut corners and increase profits by using lower quality clays. So let me quickly show you 3 popular toothpastes and powders and how bad they are..
As you can see it gets even worse…
But these products have a little bonus…
Which is used as a psychiatric medication, primarily for bipolar disorder and for major depressive disorder. It’s also what the government was thinking of adding to our water. So like I said, someone could go fluoride-free but introduce other sketchy substances.
Does A Toothpaste Ingredient Matter If I’m Not Swallowing It?
Yes, even if you don’t swallow toothpaste, our mouths can also absorb chemicals into the bloodstream. And this isn’t debated, lots of medications are placed underneath the tongue while it absorbs into your body.
And when were talking toxins like… Lead, arsenic, aluminum and lithium.
That’s not a good combo.
What You Should Use To Brush Your Teeth?
At this point you’re probably thinking there are no options left.
You either choose some sort of store bought toothpaste and expose your body to glycerin, carrageenan and microplastics + aluminum from the container. Or you go with a “natural” product that is loaded with aluminum, lead, arsenic and lithium.
So I’m going to give you two options…
A cheap homemade option AND a premium product.
Best Cheap Option To Brush Teeth?
If you don’t go with the premium option. I think you should not complicate this and go with a very simple solution. That is also very cheap.
That would be… baking soda.
A lot of people have baking soda misunderstood. They think it’s abrasive to teeth. But that makes zero sense. If you look at the studies, you’ll actually see baking soda is the LEAST abrasive thing you can brush your teeth with.
But you can easily solve that problem by adding a drop or two of essential oil.
Best Premium Option To Brush Teeth?
Since it’s not like the time I exposed Berkey water filters for leaching aluminum into the water of millions of customers. Where I could easily recommend another product to swap it out.
I took matters into my own hands.
Last thing I want is to tell you guys about a new “best” toothpaste only to find out the company cut corners, sold itself to a big corporation or some other bad news.
So over the last 3 months I’ve been researching, creating and testing different products that solve all these problems we’ve talked about.
And as a result, created Modern Primal.
So with full product control, I’ve created a toothpowder full of ingredients that work AND most importantly, a product that you don’t have to worry about damaging your mind and body.
For example, take a look at how Modern Primal’s regular and lemon toothpowders compare with one of the most popular “natural” toothpowders on the market.
As you can see…
It’s quite amazing and very safe.
The regular version only contains 5 ingredients and the lemon version has 6. While both contain nano-hydroxyapatite which is a non-toxic and effective fluoride alternative.
So check out Modern Primal (link to website), the Regular Toothpowder and the Lemon Toothpowder (link to products). You’ll also find a toxic-free mouthwash and coconut oil pulling product with hydroxyapatite (my favorite product out of the bunch).
The only problem is that it’s a natural product that is not mass-produced. We were sold out for a while, so if you’re interested, try and get it as soon as possible.
Further Test Results
In the goal of transparency I will be slowly releasing more test results in the upcoming months on Truth About Fluoride and Modern Primal. Just bare with me, it’s a one man army here but I will be releasing:
- Detailed test results of other brands
- Detailed test results of Modern Primal products
- Test results of the individual ingredients used to make Modern Primal products (we tested dozens of different suppliers and only choose the highest purity and least toxic ingredient)
I’m also more than happy to send test results to those who are interested.
It will just take some time since I need to black out company names and my personal information.
And start sending out orders!
Not many people are aware how toxic many natural dental products are. Which is a shame since it’s the people who are trying their best to be healthy. So if you have a moment, use the blue buttons below to share this article on Twitter, Facebook, Email or Pinterest.
