What is SWISH® & how does it work? SWISH® is the first functional breath freshener to use clinically backed natural ingredients that benefit both oral and digestive microbiome health. SWISH® doesn't alter health-promoting microbes in the mouth or gut. It works with our mouth’s natural chemistry to shift it from acidic to healthy pH neutral. Acid-causing bacteria like Streptococcus Mutans & P. Gingivalis are neutralized so bad things like bad breath, cavities, and gingivitis get shut down fast. Plus, good protective bacteria take their place. Each time you use SWISH®, you're helping to keep your breath fresh and your mouth healthy.
What makes my mouth acidic? The pH level in our mouth changes throughout the day. Different factors like stress, sleep, dry mouth, medications, or health disorders like xerostomia can make our mouth acidic. SWISH® resets your mouth’s pH balance in 10 seconds. What we eat or drink is the biggest contributing factor to an acidic mouth. In fact, bacteria can triple after eating. SWISHing after a meal is the perfect time to reset your oral balance.
But I already use gum & mints. Why switch it up? Simple - they don't work. They only temporarily mask the problem and often contain harsh chemicals and artificial sweeteners. All-natural SWISH® stops bad breath by neutralizing odor-causing bacteria. Plus, results can last an hour or more - even after the flavor fades, it's still working.
How do I use it? SWISH® is so easy to use. Just pour the powder on your tongue, swish around your mouth for 10 seconds or more, and swallow. That’s it! No water or toothbrush needed.
What makes SWISH® effective? We use 3 natural antibacterial ingredients – responsibly sourced 100% non-GMO plant xylitol, sodium bicarbonate and hydrated silica. Each works on their own to help stop cavities and gingivitis. Together, they form an invisible barrier that protects teeth and gums for an hour or more. Plus, SWISH® is infused with 100% natural peppermint, spearmint and eucalyptus oils which have proven antibacterial and antiviral properties.
What is plant xylitol? Plant xylitol is our hero ingredient. It’s a natural sweetener often called ‘birch sugar’. It takes just like sugar but is low calorie and isn’t harmful to teeth. Instead of encouraging acid-causing bacteria like sugar, it helps eliminate them. For maximum oral health benefit, you need about 4g of plant xylitol over a minimum of 3 servings a day. Each 3-stick envelope contains a day’s worth of protection. The American Dental Association encourages consumption as part of its Caries Management by Risk Assessment protocol.
When should I SWISH®? Anytime, really. It’s great for moments you want to feel your best (like before a meeting or a date), but it’s an effective addition to your daily oral care routine. SWISH® makes it easy to have fresh breath and a clean mouth anytime, anywhere.
I'm pregnant. Okay to SWISH®? Definitely! More than 75% of women suffer from pregnancy gingivitis. This is a serious condition that can lead to premature birth, low birth weight, pre-eclampsia, and gestational diabetes. The American Academy of Pediatrics encourages pregnant women to consume plant xylitol daily to minimize potential problems. SWISH® contains 100% non-GMO plant xylitol. It can help protect teeth and gums against cavities and gingivitis. It’s a quick and easy way to keep your breath fresh, too.
What about after baby arrives? Yes! In fact, using SWISH® can help your children have better oral health as they grow up. Bacteria often first appear in baby’s mouth through parental contact, like kissing. This is called ‘vertical transmission’. When primary and adult teeth erupt, the bacteria in their mouth colonize on the new teeth. If the bacteria are mostly acid-causing, the risks for cavities and poor gum health increase. If the bacteria are mostly healthy and protective, the risks go down. Studies have shown that parents with balanced oral bacteria can limit the chance of their children having cavities by 70 - 90%. Plus, these benefits may continue as they grow up. Consuming plant xylitol daily is key to stop vertical transmission. Each serving of SWISH® has over 1g of 100% non-GMO plant xylitol.
Should my kids SWISH®? Research has shown that daily consumption of plant xylitol drastically reduces cavities and gum disease in both young children and teenagers. It’s an easy and effective way to reset their oral pH balance, especially after they consume sugary products like fizzy drinks and candy. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry supports the use of plant xylitol.
I wear braces. Okay to SWISH®? You bet! In fact, SWISH® is a great way to help keep your mouth fresh and clean when you wear braces. For traditional appliances, it helps get rid of the bacteria trapped in the brackets and wires. It also keeps your mouth moist and can help against gum and cheek irritation, especially overnight. If you wear invisible aligners, use SWISH® after eating and before you put your trays back in. Even better, you don’t need to remove the trays when you want to freshen your breath.
What about prebiotics? When SWISH® reaches your lower intestine, the plant xylitol transforms into the prebiotic Galacto-oligosaccharides. It encourages the growth of health-promoting probiotics like Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria to fight off viral and bacterial infections. Research shows an increasing correlation between oral and gut microbiome health and improved immune response against viral and bacterial infections, particularly in the upper respiratory tract.
I eat healthy and workout. Do I need SWISH®? Yes! Even the healthiest ingredients can cause problems. Fruit smoothies, agave nectar, whole grains, even coconut or date sugar have carbs. Your mouth doesn’t distinguish the kind of carb you consumed, it just sees it as an energy source for the bacteria that lead to cavities and gingivitis. SWISH® neutralizes acid-causing bacteria to help keep your mouth healthy. SWISHing after a workout is a really healthy habit. A good sweat can mean a dry mouth. That kicks acid-causing bacteria into overdrive. Using energy gels or recovery drinks just makes the problem worse. A quick SWISH® stops the problem fast.
Is SWISH® safe for pets? Definitely no. SWISH® contains plant xylitol, which is great for humans but can be toxic for animals. Please keep all plant xylitol products out of reach.
