Antioxidants

Combination antioxidants have been shown to act in concert and have a strong synergistic effect compared to single antioxidants.
Phloretin
Phloretin is a polyphenolic compound in the sub-group flavonoids and is mainly derived from apples. It is a potent antioxidant and has been shown to inhibit several types of destructive enzymes. Phloretin is known to adsorb to lipid surfaces, such as cell membranes.
Ferulic Acid
This effective, polyphenolic antioxidant is a substance found in the seeds and leaves of most plants, especially in the brans of grasses such as wheat, rice and oats. Its chemical structure strongly resembles that of curcumin, also a potent polyphenol. Polyphenols are so named because they have multiple phenolic constituents.

Other Ingredients

Menthol Peppermint Oil
Menthol is a purified compound from peppermint oil. Menthol is responsible for imparting a cooling, soothing effect; a property present in whole peppermint oil, but multiplied in pure menthol. In addition to this flavoring ability, for which it is mostly used, peppermint oil has excellent antibacterial and antifungal properties. In a study published in Mycopathologica in 2008, the inhibitory effect of 30 plant oils including peppermint was evaluated against biofilm forming Candida albicans strain (CA I) isolated from clinical samples. Peppermint oil showed 74.16% biofilm reduction.
Thyme
Thymol is a natural phenol compound derivative found in oil of thyme, and extracted from Thymus vulgaris and various other kinds of plants. Thymol also provides the distinctive, strong flavor and is part of a naturally occurring class of compounds known as biocides, with strong antimicrobial attributes. Numerous studies have demonstrated the antimicrobial effects of thymol, ranging from inducing antibiotic susceptibility in drug- resistant pathogens to powerful antioxidant properties. Thymol has also demonstrated antifungal activity and anti-inflammatory effects including inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis.
Sage Oil
Sage, Salvia officinalis, has a long history of medicinal uses. It has been used to stop bleeding wounds, treat ulcers and swelling and – internally – to treat sore throats and coughs, as well as dental abscesses, infected gums and mouth ulcers. Recent in vitro studies clearly showed that sage oil can interrupt inflammatory response paths, most likely from its content of rosmarinic acid. Sage oil has also revealed an antioxidant capability and it is a constituent of many dental hygiene products.
Clove Flower Oil
Sourced from the leaves, flower buds or fruit of a tree native to South America, clove is a natural substance known for its antibacterial capabilities and its aenesthetic powers. In a high concentation, it was found to be as effective as a 20% benzocaine gel in preventing pain from needle sticks, however did cause burning and small aphtous ulcers. In a low concentration, it is effective to alleviate symptoms of irritation in the oral cavity and provide antibacterial support.
Xylitol
Found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, is a sugar alcohol sweetener used as a naturally occurring sugar substitute. Xylitol is specific in its inhibition of the mutans streptococci group, bacteria that are significant contributors to tooth decay.

Directions

Apply a pea-sized amount each to your upper and lower gums using your fingertips, cotton swab or soft toothbrush. Allow the gel to dissolve and expectorate (spit out) excess. Do not swallow. Should any irritation occur in the mouth upon application discontinue use and contact a dental professional. AO ProVantage is designed to be applied twice daily. Suggested applications are morning and evening after brushing teeth. After applying AO ProVantage do not eat or drink for 30 minutes to allow gel maximum time on soft oral tissue.
