Listerine Total Care – $6.99 / bottle | $41.94 / 6 pack
Like your teeth firmly in your head? Great. Don’t ignore them as part of your daily fitness routine. Brushing isn’t enough. You need to floss and build up your enamel if you want to avoid your gums receding faster than Paul Giamatti’s hairline.
Listerine total care does more than just freshen your breath. It helps build up the enamel on your teeth, fighting off cavities and in some cases even reversing decay. It’s good for your gums, and believe it or not, what’s good for your gums is good for your heart.
Your gums are a direct line to your blood stream. That’s why people who dip and chew tobacco put their pinch right in their bottom lip. The nicotine gets into their system that much faster. And more and more research is coming out that shows if you ignore the health of your gums, ugly bacteria will work their way to your heart. Your heart has to work harder to fend them off, and over time that’ll wear your ticker down.
Is the taste a little intense? Yep. But it’s better than another cavity filling or a heart attack when you’re 60.
