How it works
The active ingredient mucin sticks to the mouth cavity and the teeth providing long- lasting caring wetting and comfort. Simultaneously, mucin protects human surfaces against bacteria and fungus, and counteracts the formation of ulcers.
It is important that a saliva substitute replicate human saliva as closely as possible. The solution remains neutral, since the acidity in the mouth is undesirable, as this can lead to the increased soreness and further increases tooth damage risk.

*Dry mouth also called Xerostomia is a condition of not having enough saliva, or spit, to keep the mouth

Anaemia.

*Artificial Saliva is gluten free, has no reported side effects
