Why Dry Mouth?
Over 40,000,000 people suffer from Dry Mouth. This ranges from minor problems (hypo salivation) caused by overusing the voice or nervous tension, to severe salivary gland dysfunction (xerostomia), caused by medications taken for: Asthma and Diabetes, psychiatric problems, chemotherapy and the side effects of certain diseases and physical disabilities: Sjogren's Syndrome, Lupus, Dialysis, radiation treatment, and aging.
Thayers Sugar-Free Dry Mouth Lozenges and Sprays were introduced in 1995 to fill a need that had been grievously overlooked. Dentists were noticing aggressive tooth decay in patients suffering from continuous dry mouth. The choices of products to relieve dry mouth by replacing saliva, or stimulating saliva production were hard to find and, in some cases, had a horrible taste. The need was to create products that would do all of the above: balance the pH in the mouth to normal levels of saliva to allow the patient to fight tooth decay and; to provide relief with instant moisture. All this had to be done without any drug interaction.
Thayers created two sprays that provided dry mouth relief with instant moisture (all natural, sugar-free, no known drug interaction, balanced the pH to normal levels, ease in swallowing food and speaking): with Thayers Dry Mouth Citrus Spray and Thayers Dry Mouth Peppermint Spray. Its Dry Mouth Lozenges stimulate saliva production with a strong natural lemonade flavor and Slippery Elm bark to soothe the raspiness and sore throat caused by this problem. All Thayers products are vegetarian and never tested on animals.
What is Slippery Elm?
In the middle of the 1800's, choir singers in Cambridge, Massachusetts learned an important fact from the Native Peoples in their area. The tribes had been grinding up the inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree and mixing it with buffalo meat to calm the stomach and the bowel. They would suck on strips of the inner bark to heal sore throats and any sores in the mouth. The choir singers started the regimen of sucking on the bark before and after singing and found that their throats did not become sore, irritated and they did not lose their voices or become hoarse.
To this day, the strips of bark and Thayers Slippery Elm Lozenges are used at Pow Wows throughout the United States by Native Peoples' singers.
Word of this natural remedy spread throughout the church choirs in New England. Over time, the word got out to opera, rock, country and contemporary singers, as well as vocal coaches, judges, lawyers, teachers, sales people and others that use their voices every day.
The Slippery Elm Tree (ulmus fulva) grows plentifully in the eastern regions of the United States and Canada. The inner bark of the tree is used for medicinal purposes.
On May 15th, 2005 the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) approved Thayers™ Slippery Elm Lozenges, an all natural product, as an over-the-counter drug, thereby sanctioning Thayers Slippery Elm Lozenges as a product that heals, soothes and protects the membranes of the mouth and throat.
