Date:3/16/2009

Exclusive Probiotic Works Naturally to Restore Oral Health

CHICAGO, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunstar Americas, Inc., manufacturer of GUM(R) and Butler(R) brand products, has introduced GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM), one of the first probiotic supplements specifically created for oral health. GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) is available online through www.drugstore.com or at the GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) e-store (www.periobalance.com) and at Bartell Drugs retail locations in the Seattle area. GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) is expected to be available nationwide in 2010.

GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) is a daily dental probiotic supplement that comes in a mint flavored lozenge and is made with Prodentis(TM). Prodentis(TM), the patented key ingredient in GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM), is a unique blend of probiotics specifically formulated to provide oral health benefits by balancing the oral environment. It is clinically shown to reduce moderate-to-severe plaque and promote healthy teeth and gums in just 28 days*.

Probiotics are beneficial or "good" bacteria, which can help strengthen the natural defense system against oral health problems.

"Stress, illness, poor diet, or inadequate oral hygiene can disrupt oral balance, allowing bad bacteria to thrive leading to oral health problems like plaque buildup, unhealthy teeth and gums, and bad breath," said Nikki Lockett, Sunstar Americas, Inc. Marketing Manager. "When taken daily, Gum(R) PerioBalance(TM) helps keep the oral environment balanced, providing a natural defense against oral health problems."

Prodentis(TM) was specifically designed for oral health and helps to balance the oral environment, providing long-lasting, sustained protection when ingested and used regularly.

"GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) is a cutting edge product for re-establishing the normal balance of oral flora naturally," Professor John G. Thomas, MS, PhD, HCLD, international educator and global microbiologist said. "I am excited by the research on GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) which indicates its potential to help maintain a strong defense against unhealthy teeth and gums, plaque, and bad breath."

The recommended dosage is one lozenge per day, but, as always, consumers should continue to brush and floss for good oral hygiene.

GUM(R) PerioBalance(TM) comes in a 28-day pack and is lactose free. It can be taken with other medications, foods, or dietary supplements.
