PULL THE PLUG ON UV SANIZITERS:
STERIPOD Offers Modern Alternative To Old-School UV Sanitizers
Will a UV sanitizer provide greater health and wellness, for ourselves and for our families? In the past few decades, our understanding of hygiene and disease-prevention has changed the way we view every aspect of our lives and the quest for a cleaner bathroom is part of this changed view. STERIPOD makes a clean mouth and a healthier lifestyle easy. It's small, sleek, modern, with no moving parts and nothing to re-charge. Just clip it on and keep it clean. No batteries or cords unlike UV sanitizers.
At the epicenter of the modern cleanliness revolution: the toothbrush. Why? Because the toothbrush goes directly into your mouth, twice a day or more, and usually carries with it a heavy cargo of bathroom bacteria. These bacteria not only attack tooth-enamel and gum-tissue, but may also introduce colds, flu, tummy-trouble and other health issues.
One way to defend your toothbrush is with a UV sanitizer. Utilizing battery-power or a standard plug, personal UV sanitizers are effective in reducing bacterial activity on toothbrushes, dental retainers, whatever is placed inside the UV sanitizer.
But they're bulky, and require a power-source‚ certainly not convenient when you're on the move and want to brush frequently. When your batteries are exhausted, or you can't find an outlet, your UV sanitizer is a dud. STERIPOD offers a more modern, portable alternative.
STERIPOD WAS MADE FOR THE ACTIVE LIFESTYLE!
STERIPOD is a lightweight plastic bubble that clips on to both manual and electric toothbrushes, offering two kinds of protection.
- First, it's literally a physical barrier against bacteria and whatever else is in the air or environment around your toothbrush.
- Second, a non-toxic botanical tablet inside the protective STERIPOD "helmet" creates an antibacterial vapor-shield. The active ingredient in the STERIPOD is Thymol, an extract derived from Thyme, a member of the mint family. Thymol is often used in mouthwash and oral rinse products, for its refreshing and bug-killing qualities. A UV sanitizer cannot do this!
Dentists agree that frequent brushing "after every meal, and even more frequently if you eat lots of starchy, sugary carbs" along with daily flossing, water-jet, rubber tip stimulators and other dental tools are the key to maintaining gum and tooth health.
This means that you need to own and use more than one toothbrush. Most of us spend most of our day away from home. So, it makes sense to have multiple toothbrushes: one in the glove compartment of the car, one in handbag or briefcase, one at the office, one in the gym bag, one in the health club locker, etc. Portability and easy access are essential to frequent brushing. But chances are that you don't have the space or electrical access to protect each of these toothbrushes with an old-school UV sanitizer. STERIPOD clips instantly over the toothbrush head, and packs easily. No cords, no batteries, no plugs, no UV sanitizer just a pristine brush every time.
IS A UV SANITIZER THE ANSWER?
If you're not sanitizing your toothbrush with a STERIPOD, you're exposing yourself to untold billions of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts, molds and more via your mouth, every time you brush. A UV sanitizer is not guaranteed and unlike UV sanitizers the STERIPOD is affordable. In addition to the bacteria which swirl up from your bathroom bowl each time you flush (think E.coli, the digestive bacteria which causes food-poisoning), the bacterial action on your exposed toothbrush bristles also may include bugs from other toothbrushes which share your bathroom.
If a loved one has a rhinovirus (respiratory cold, flu), and stores a wet toothbrush next to yours, the rhinovirus and other trouble-makers can easily migrate to your bristles. Wonder where you got that cold? Wonder no more. And, of course, if anyone sneezes or coughs in your bathroom, even if they never touch your toothbrush, those airborne bugs are added to the mix. Achoo! Protecting your brush with STERIPOD is the first line of defense.
EVERYDAY HEALTH: D.I.Y.
Preventing and treating tooth decay and gum disease are still a challenge. This is because our mouths provide ideal breeding-conditions for bacteria: dark, warm, sticky, wet, and generally furnished with sugars and other bits of food-debris which in turn provide support for bacterial colonies.
Through the ages, people have attempted to fight dental problems, regardless of their source, with herbs, UV sanitizers, spices and primitive cleaning tools. Green hazel-twigs, sharpened to a point and wrapped in wool, were an early tooth-cleaning implement in Europe, while 15th century China produced the first known toothbrush consisting of a clump of stiff boar-quills bound in a bamboo handle.
According to Bankes, Herbal 1525, a historic medical document, mint mouthwash, made with finely chopped, dried mint steeped in red wine, was a popular treatment for toothaches. Cloves, nutmeg, sandalwood, cardamom, anise, fennel, caraway, sage, salt, marjoram, mint and other herbs and spices used to cure and preserve meats "and embalm human corpses!" also were chewed and rubbed on the gums and tongue in an attempt to rid the mouth of infection.
We now know that tooth-loss is not inevitable with age. Decay and infection are not evidence of divine wrath, or any other mysterious forces. Teeth do not spontaneously rot or fall out they succumb to the attack of bacteria. So clip on STERIPOD for the cleanest brush in human history and throw out your old UV sanitizer.
