Copper has been used as a medical sterilizer since 2200 BC, and in 2008, the US Environmental Protection Agency declared copper the only metal with antimicrobial properties. It zaps microbes on contact, making it an ideal material for oral care tools. This trace element essential for cell metabolism capably clears away pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and yeasts on contact.
The tongue is key to the microbiome one of the most overlooked organs in the body. The simple process of tongue scraping is an ancient Ayurvedic oral care remedy that clears the mouth of bacteria and build-up that contribute to imbalanced oral ecology. It also enhances taste bud performance and sensitivity. Once freed to function optimally, each taste bud can receive strong flavor signals from food, and this may add zest to life!
