Melissa Bistricer, MS, RDN : [00:00:40] Welcome back to another podcast here at InViteⓇ Health. Some people seem to have wanted to know about oral health and how canker sores occur and if there’s anything they can do for them. A canker sore can happen for multiple different reasons. Let me tell you about why they can happen and then supplements that may be able to help with oral hygiene and canker sores.† [00:01:00]

[00:01:00] My name is Melissa Bistricer and I’m a registered dietitian. I am so excited to bring to you the nutritional aspect of nutrients here at InViteⓇ Health. Nutrition, food for thought: to eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art. InViteⓇ Health promotes an intuitive approach in providing vitamins into your daily life to increase your quality of life. In conjunction with nutrients it is also important to learn and include other lifestyle modifications like nutrition, exercise, and sleep. These practices with the use of vitamins will promote optimal benefits in your daily life.† [00:01:37]

[00:01:37] Canker sores, canker sores are a type of mouth sores, sometimes called ulcers. They are a small, shallow lesion that are developed on soft tissue of the mouth based on the gums. They are not contagious and are generally irritating and very painful. Canker sores can be caused by stress, acidic foods and minor injuries to the inside of the mouth. Most canker sores are round or oval with white or yellow in the center and a red rim around that. It is the inside of the mouth that is generally under the tongue, inside the cheek or lips at the base of the gums. There are actually several types of canker sores, such as a minor, major and herpetiform canker sores. The cause of a canker sore is unknown and unclear. Some research has suggested that triggers for canker sores can be minor injuries like dental work, sports mishaps or accidental cheek biting. It can also be caused by toothpaste and mouthwash containing sodium sulfate, food sensitivities and a diet lacking in vitamin B12, zinc, folate and iron. There are also triggers such as allergic responses to certain bacteria in the mouth, H. Pylori and emotional stress. There can also be cases where canker sores are more common to occur specifically in disease conditions. These disease conditions can be celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, or an immune system attached to the cells, and lastly, HIV and AIDS. † [00:03:07]

[00:03:09] Risk factors can be for periodontal diseases such as smoking, older age, especially over the age of 65 and female gender. So how can we limit and get rid of canker sores? The first way that I would recommend is, that I’ve seen really work is to get rid of the canker sores quickly is using salt water or baking soda in lukewarm water, just swish that in your mouth and spit it out the water. Do that every night till you start to see the canker sore going away and you’re starting to feel better. Prevention is a very big component. You want to try to limit the occurrence by watching what you eat. Trying to avoid foods that may irritate the mouth like nuts, chips, pretzels, spicy foods, or acidic foods. You want to focus on eating healthy foods to prevent the deficiencies. You want to try and eat as much fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your diet. We should also try to practice good oral hygiene. This means brushing our teeth after meals and flossing once a day. To keep the mouth clean of foods that might trigger the sore. We need to also reduce stress. Canker sores are related to stress, so learning how to reduce stress by using techniques like meditation or a natural supplement like L-Theanine or 5-HTP.† [00:04:22]

[00:04:24] Diet and lifestyle are two things to take into consideration to limit and reduce canker sores on a regular basis, it is best to consume a diet lower in sugar, processed starches and soda. You want to increase your vegetables, fruit and whole grain intake, and especially calcium from dairy products to lower the risk of periodontal disease. A probiotic supplement or probiotic foods may help your gums and prevent bleeding. Specifically, acidophilus, which does not only have to be in a supplement pill form, it actually is naturally found in yogurt. The connection to a probiotic and the canker sore is to help stimulate the immune system to help the sore heal. CoQ10 has also been studied in a randomized controlled trial for patients with periodontal disease that underwent a root canaling. And they seem to have a significant reduction in gum inflammation while taking CoQ10 than the placebo group. Fish oil has also been seen to help periodontal disease, to help lower inflammation from omega three fatty acids. The fish oil has been also associated with heart health, type two diabetes, and autoimmune disease. Lycopene has also been clinically trailed to help with periodontal issues as well. The individual who took lycopene orally has been has seen a more, has seen a better effect than those in the placebo group. Lysine has been shown to help shorten the duration of a canker sore. † [00:05:53]

[00:05:54] Lysine is an amino acid, you can get it as a supplement form. Lysine considerably shortens the duration of the canker sore if you feel a canker sore coming on within the one week period, start taking a thousand milligrams of lysine every single day and you will definitely see the benefits of reducing the duration of the canker sore. So, what vitamins are lacking if you get a canker sore? In recent studies, it has been shown that canker sores have been caused by triggers or a lack of vitamins or nutrients that can be from folic acid, zinc, or iron. Deficiencies of calcium were also noted. However, calcium deficiency wasn’t clearly linked to aggravate the situation. Healthy eating again can certainly aid in the fight against canker sores. † [00:06:42]

[00:06:43] So, getting exposure can definitely look like this. To help reduce the painful canker sores in your mouth. You want to try and avoid foods with acid or anything that is spicy to not irritate the sore further. You want to use salt water baking soda with lukewarm water for about a week to help shrink the canker sore. You want to practice good oral hygiene with brushing your teeth and flossing one time a day. You want to consume a lot of fruits and vegetables and whole grains to eliminate the sugary foods in your diet, such as soda and processed foods. You want to make sure you’re hitting the categories of fruits, vegetables and whole grains to prevent any deficiencies from folate, zinc, iron, and B12. Which may have caused the canker sore to come.† [00:07:27]

[00:07:28] In terms of supplements, you can use lysine to prevent and help heal the canker sore. There may be some benefits in taking a comprehensive multivitamin to eliminate the chance of deficiencies. As well as that may be impacting on your oral health. You can also try and take probiotics or eat probiotic food. So you can check out our lysine and multivitamins that are sold at invitehealth.com.

Are You Looking For Weight Loss Tips & Tricks? – InViteⓇ Health Podcast Episode 548

Allie Might, INHC: [00:00:41] Welcome to the InViteⓇ Health Podcast, where today we will discuss the age old question. Is there a magic pill for weight loss? This is Allie Might, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and functional medicine coach ready to help you shed those extra pounds. There are so many options out there when it comes to weight loss supplements. My go to’s include a protein powder, a probiotic, green tea, and then the one I’m asked about a lot as it’s the new trendy weight loss supplement apple cider vinegar. Why do I like a protein powder for weight loss? It’s because I incorporate it as a meal replacement. Like many kids, I grew up eating those yummy, sweet breakfasts. As an adult, it’s just not possible to start our day that way anymore without risking packing on the pounds. So what do we do? Try a bananas foster French toast shake. Blend water, vanilla protein powder, a half a banana, a tablespoon of organic pure maple syrup, a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract and a half a teaspoon of cinnamon. All the flavor and satisfaction, but just a fraction of the fat, calories and sugar. My replacement shakes are always my go to to start my day. † [00:02:03]

HOW TO FINALLY ACHIEVE SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS – INVITE HEALTH PODCAST, EPISODE 164 >> Listen Now! 

[00:02:05] Most people don’t think of a probiotic as an aid for weight loss. We typically associate this with our gut and our immune system. But how does it help with weight loss? Well, there’s a specific strain of probiotic called bifidobacterium breve – B3 that has been shown to help reduce body fat in studies. Adding something like our Probiotic HxⓇ Weight to your daily supplement regimen can help you start shedding some extra pounds. I’m someone who can not have a conversation about weight loss without talking about green tea. We know that there are many benefits associated with green tea as it’s a powerful antioxidant. But research has taught us about some of the components found in green tea. These are catechins and EGCG. They are helpful in the weight loss process because they can help our body to burn fat and increase our metabolism. So does the green tea that one would use matter? Well, of course it does. All the boxes of green tea, whether it’s tea bags or the loose tea, are yummy and comforting. They aren’t concentrated enough to be able to reap all of the benefits. Look for concentrated green tea in either capsule or liquid form. Personally, I like the concentrated liquid because I can add it to my water, which not only gives my water a nice flavor, but it also helps me get in extra water throughout the day.† [00:03:36]

[00:03:38] There always seems to be the trendy weight loss product that saturates the media outlets. Right now we’ve been hearing all about apple cider vinegar or ACD. We’re familiar with ACD as it’s common in dressings and marinades. However, is it here to stay for weight loss? Well, I believe it is, especially when it’s used in the right capacity. Studies have shown it can be helpful in losing some extra pounds. It is also helpful in increasing temperature in our body as well as burning more fat and to help build lean muscle mass.† [00:04:14]
