Take a few drops, swish around in your mouth, you will begin to salivicate....wildly and begin to experience a "buzzing" sensation as your nerve endings become excited, your circulation increases and the power of the herb diffuses throught your mouth and gums. Your saliva contains antibacterial compounds that help protect your teeth and gums and combined with the strong bacteria fighting action of spilanthes this tincture is popular for helping to fight tooth decay.
The alkamide "spilanthol" is most commonly used to treat toothache, throat and gum infections and will also temporarily act as a anathesia to deaden tooth pain while its bacteria fighting action fights tooth decay.
Traditionally spilanthes has many uses that have been screened and authenticated by reasearchers in vivo and in vitro. Research has demonstrated its antibacterial properties and in vitro tests have demonstrated its strong effect against;
Growth of Candida albicans.
