Power to the mouth!
Cavities are painful, expensive and dangerous to your overall health. There are simple things we all can do at home to prevent them. They include getting enough vitamin D in our diets, brushing with fluoride toothpaste, cutting out sugary foods, oil pulling, and chewing on licorice root.
Let’s be honest, we don’t always floss and brush our teeth as often and as diligently as we should. Plus, all those acidic foods and drinks we gulp down every day are not doing anything for our oral health. That’s where qii comes in.
qii is the world’s first drink proven to reduce plaque build-up. In laboratory tests, qii reduced the amount of harmful acid-producing bacteria in plaque by up to 52%. It also prevented the growth of other disease-causing oral microbes, including the ones responsible for causing tooth decay, gingivitis and bad breath.
This 4 pack of qii Lychee Tea is a delicious and refreshing boost to your busy life. It has all the flavor and sweetness you find in conventional drinks but with 40% less calories, zero grams of sugar, and oral health benefits that your dentist will love you for. By combining the proven antibacterial properties of tea with the benefits of XyVita, our proprietary xylitol-based sweetener, qii delivers a one-two punch to keep harmful oral bacteria in check and reduce plaque—all in a single, easy-to-drink can.
qii is made in the USA and created by the team at Dosebiome, a start-up company focused on oral microbiome research based in Toronto, Canada.
qii is currently available in five flavors: White Peach, Pomegranate, Lychee, Lemongrass Ginger and Oolong.
