Today is all about Dental Health!

MB 09-25-2019

We always say food is medicine and thus, the food we eat is also important for our dental health! Metabolic Balance not only rebalances and restores poor metabolism back to the right path. It does this for teeth too by supporting a balanced and healthy oral flora. It is the bacteria in our mouth and on our teeth that influences the development of cavities and poor dental health. Our nutrition plans do not contain any (hidden) sugars. It is the sugar in our diets that increase lactic acid in the mouth, causing minerals to be taken from the dental enamel and weakening it, and leading to bacteria creating more cavities. By allotting you the best and healthy foods for you, Metabolic Balance helps you have a healthy mouth and a happy smile. Keep your dental health with Metabolic Balance!
