If you battle dry mouth, you don’t need me to tell you that mainstream medicine isn’t very interested in helping you with the problem.
Unless it has the potential to make a few billion bucks, drug companies can’t be bothered. And when docs can’t dash off a prescription and send you on your way, they often lose focus fast.
So your maddening dry mouth gets dismissed as a “minor lifestyle issue.” But the one in five seniors battling dry mouth will tell you there’s NOTHING minor about it.
It can mess with your sleep… sap your enjoyment of food… leave your throat sore… make your breath stink… and even cause difficulties with speaking and being understood when you talk.
And perhaps worst of all, it can turn swallowing pills into a moment you absolutely DREAD.
So today, let’s finally give dry mouth the attention it deserves.
Because there IS a solution out there. One backed by new research. And while it won’t make anyone a few billion bucks, it certainly could restore YOUR quality of life and help you enjoy your meals again.
Barking up the right tree for dry mouth
When you have dry mouth, swallowing food can sometimes feel like trying to gulp down a mouthful of tree bark. So maybe it’s a little funny that the solution to dry mouth is exactly that…. BARK.
Now I’m not suggesting you head outside and start gnawing on the nearest tree trunk, of course. Not only would that be really silly, but chances are also VERY slim it would be the RIGHT kind of bark anyway.
It’s a potent extract from a very unique kind of pine tree we’re talking about here. A compound that has ALREADY been shown to improve health in dozens of important ways.
The new study shows how this same potent extract could help wipe out this quality-of-life issue. It was tested in a head-to-head study against a placebo in two groups of folks suffering from dry mouth.
Half of the volunteers who got the real extract had diabetes, and half didn’t. And the extract blew the placebo out of the water, winning big-time in both groups.
REDUCES dryness and INCREASES saliva
The patients with dry mouth given a placebo, on the other hand, had ZERO improvements in saliva production. Plus, they had only a very tiny three to six percent improvement in dry mouth symptoms.
But the real-deal pine-bark extract delivered major improvements in both cases. It led to increased saliva production by…
- 82 percent in those without diabetes
- 70 percent in those with diabetes
Plus, it reduced mouth dryness by…
- 66 percent in the folks without diabetes
- 63 percent in those with diabetes
But the benefits didn’t end there. The pine bark compound also rolled back mouth sores from dry mouth by two-thirds in study participants who were diabetes-free, and by more than half in patients with the disease.
And, remarkably, it managed to do all this in just TWO WEEKS.
Impressive? Absolutely. But that’s not all this unique bark is known for. Past research revealed the same potent extract could help improve circulation, preserve memory, retain muscle, ease joint pain, and keep your heart healthy. And guys, it’s even been shown to help with prostate issues.
Like I said earlier, this isn’t any old bark. It’s a unique extract from the bark of the French maritime pine tree. It’s often sold as Pycnogenol. And you can find it in stores where supplements are sold, as well as online.
Don’t let dry mouth sap YOUR life of joy. Bark up the RIGHT tree and give Pycnogenol a try.
