Toothbrushes: Pathogen Timebomb
Toothbrushes are an indispensable part of every household. These devices are not only used by all members of a family but are also used often, usually as often as one eats regular meals. Unknown to many, toothbrushes are a breeding ground for millions of disease causing microorganisms that can be transferred to a person’s mouth during brushing.
A contaminated toothbrush can cause tooth decay and sicknesses like upper respiratory tract infection, influenza, cavities, gum disease and bad breath. Because they provide a warm moist environment, most toothbrushes are a perfect place for bacteria to grow in while they are not in use.
Smart Toothbrushes by Ecofam
Ecofam offers a breakthrough solution that eliminates the risk of getting your family sick with bacteria laden toothbrushes.Ecofam Toothbrushes naturally eliminate up to 99% of bacteria on your toothbrush bristles while you are not brushing. That means that your toothbrush can self-clean after every use. Brushing with a clean toothbrush can help prevent gum disease and keep you and your family healthy.
Ecofam uses the same technology used in hospitals. Silver is widely used in the medical field as it is incorporated into wound dressings to treat external infections and is also used as an antiseptic and disinfectant in medical appliances. Using this same technology, Ecofam toothbrushes can kill many species of bacteria with its silver infused bristles. When bacteria come in contact with the silver in the bristles, it interacts with the outer membrane of the microbe which leads to its degradation and eventual death. Silver use continues to play an important role in the medical field especially with the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Ecofam toothbrushes use a patented technology which keeps the silver in the toothbrush bristles even after prolonged use. This means that there is no risk of ingesting silver that can cause any adverse effects. Silver is safe to use as recent studies (Lansdown) “show that the risk expected due to clinical exposure to silver is “minimal”, as only chronic ingestion or inhalation of silver preparations leads to an accumulation of silver in the human body.”
Ecofam toothbrushes use silver particles in its bristles that have nano sized ions. These have natural antibacterial and antifungal properties that can keep your toothbrushes clean and free from bacteria.
Ecofam Toothbrushes are earth friendly. Aside from the biodegradable handle, the silver nano particles in the bristles will stay there till they degrade. Silver nano also cannot maintain their nano scale attributes when in the environment. They usually immediately agglomerate with natural salts, minerals and other substances and lose their nano-scale properties making them safe.
To Floss or not to Floss
Flossing is a recommended practice by dentists as a part of every person’s mouth cleaning routine. Flossing does not only ensure thorough cleaning of the areas in between teeth and prevent plaque build up but is proven to prevent gum disease, halitosis and dental caries. Studies have actually tied flossing with reduced incidence of heart disease and correlated it with greater longevity with the prevention of gum problems.
In today’s fast paced environment, however, many skip this very important practice and are content with just brushing their teeth.
Floss While you Brush with Ecofam
Ecofam aims to solve this problem by allowing you to floss while brushing your teeth. With Ecofam’s Micro Flossing Bristles, one can reach areas in between teeth and below the gum line that no other toothbrush reaches. One can feel the difference after brushing with Ecofam toothbrushes as their mouth are cleaner and their gums healthier.
Though no replacement to actual flossing, Ecofam toothbrushes provide you with a more thorough cleaning of your teeth without the extra effort.
Get Ecofam Toothbrushes for your family and feel the difference. Ecofam Toothbrushes are not only effective, but are also 100% biodegradable and cleans themselves after every brushing to prevent you from having disease causing bacteria in your mouth when you brush.
The Toothbrush Waste Problem
Toothbrushes contribute a considerable amount of waste to the environment. Since they are used repeatedly, they usually wear down fast. Dentists recommend that we replace our toothbrushes every three months and with people using toothbrushes on a daily basis, tons of toothbrushes (around 50 million pounds) get sent to landfills on a yearly basis.
Most toothbrushes are made of plastic and the use of this material amplifies the waste problem posed by this very essential device. Since plastic takes a very long time to degrade, used toothbrushes are a waste product that does not go back to the environment after disposal.
Back in Nature
Ecofam aims to help the environment by reducing the waste that comes from toothbrushes. With our 100% biodegradable material, all of our toothbrushes will go back to the earth if it disposed as in a landfill. Ecofam toothbrushes are made with plant starch, plant glue and plant oils. These material occurs naturally in the environment and degrades naturally after a short time.
Buy Ecofam Toothbrushes now! They are not only earth friendly, but are antibacterial and effective. The Micro Flossing bristles in the brushes can reach areas between the teeth and below the gum line ordinary toothbrushes cannot reach.
Ecofam, a healthier earth and a healthier you.
Nanotechnology is the science that produces and utilizes particles that measure in the nano (1nm = I billionth of a meter). One of the most popular nano particles is nano silver which has had an impact in the healthcare industry for its antibacterial properties.
Silver has been used for its antibacterial and antifungal properties for centuries in treating medical ailments. With the advent of nanotechnology, silver particles in the nano size (usually 25nm) have been a preferred solution for its effectiveness in killing bacteria and fungi. Because of its size, nano silver has an extremely large surface area which increases its contact with the organism it kills. This amplifies its bactericidal and antifungal properties.
When a bacterium or fungi comes in contact with the silver, it suppresses its respiration, the basal metabolism of its electron transfer system and the transport of substrates in the microbial cell membrane. “Nano Silver will combine with the cell walls of pathogenic bacteria, will then directly get inside the bacteria and quickly combine with sulphydryl (-SH) of oxygenic metabolic enzyme to deactivate them, to block inhalation and metabolism and suffocate the bacteria.” This inhibits its growth and ability to multiply, stopping infection, odor, itchiness and sores.
Silver is used currently in water purification systems, pool sanitation and by the NASA in purifying water in space shuttles. At the moment, there are over 50 silver based medicines in the market in topical, oral and injectable forms.
Nano silver is currently a technology used in hospitals for dressing burns or wounds and for disinfecting medical products and devices. It has now achieved popular use as a coating for the surface of electronics, carbon blocks, textiles, metals, woods, ceramics, glass, paper, plastic resin and many others. The uniform distribution of nano sized particles in the surface of these products creates a surface area that is infinitely greater than than of silver foil. This enables strong antibacterial effects even with the smallest amount of silver.
Nano silver is also known to not expire, and is unaffected by light, heat and radiations for its healing properties.
