Better consumer products with innovative solutions

Protect against caries

Worldwide, according to WHO, 60–90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults have dental caries. Streptococcus mutans, an oral streptococcus carried by virtually everyone, has been implicated as the principal etiological agent in human dental caries. Various researches have shown that egg yolk immunoglobulins (IgY) are highly effective in controlling S. mutans level in the mouth cavity and preventing dental caries.

Protect against gum disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is highly prevalent and can affect up to 90% of the world population. Among periodontopathic bacteria, Porphyromonas gingivalis has been considered the most important pathogen. The enzyme it produces, gingipain, plays a major role in the pathogenesis of periodontitis. With EW Nutrition’s oral care solution, you can combat periodontitis through easy-to-use consumer products.

Protect against dry mouth

Dry mouth is commonly caused by the side effects of certain medications or infections, or by an unhealthy lifestyle (smoking etc). Dry mouth increases a person’s risk of having oral candidiasis. Oral passive immunization with IgY  has been shown to be effective in reducing salivary Candida in infected animal model and in human volunteers. Oral moisturising gels containing IgY can be used to control the growth of C. albicans in oral cavities.
