Tweetable Quotes

“We definitely have lots and lots of research and data that is very conclusive that the bacteria in our intestines and our gut is really important for our health in so many different ways.” (02:46) (Dr. Brian)

“What we find is that, on the flip side, if somebody has really bad oral hygiene - they don’t go to the dentist regularly, they don’t brush or floss regularly - that the bad bacteria really start overtaking the good bacteria in the mouth. Studies have shown that people in that scenario with a lot of plaque on their teeth have increased risk of heart attack.” (04:01) (Dr. Brian)

“It’s possible, potentially, that a good probiotic can affect the bacteria in the mouth that reduce the plaque build-up in the mouth and on the teeth.” (07:32) (Dr. Brian)
