The Dr Tungs Tongue Cleaner is made from stainless steel and it’s perfectly curved edge helps to remove bacteria and plaque on the tongue’s surface. Interestingly, 50% of bacteria found in our mouths is found on the surface of our tongues. This U-shaped tongue cleaner is designed to gently scrape off unwanted bacteria and soft plaque from the tongue, with research showing that it is over twice as effective in removing bio-burden from the tongue as a toothbrush.
Tongue Cleaning is one of the best remedies for bad breath, and also helps to improve overall taste perception (as that coating on the tongue can dull our taste receptors). Research shows that tongue cleaning can also help to reduce plaque buildup on the teeth.
The gentle pressure from the stainless steel cleaner has an extra wholistic benefit of stimulating the immune system, tastebuds and other senses. It is perfect for use as part of an Ayurvedic health approach.
Each tongue cleaner comes with a free bamboo travel pouch.
