During the colder winter months who doesn’t love snuggling up with a warm cup of green tea? The popular beverage has been a staple in Asian culture for thousands of years, but despite its long history the benefits of green tea are still being discovered. A recent study published in the Journal of Periodontology, found that regular intake of green tea can help promote healthy teeth and gums. But, you don’t have to be a tea drinker to gain the oral health benefits of this soothing beverage.

Green tea is made from leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, which are plucked and immediately cooked to preserve nutrients and prevent oxidation. As a result, green teas have a much higher concentration of antioxidants than other types of tea. The organic green tea extract found in our toothpaste formulas is responsibly sourced from a U.S. certified organic Camellia sinensis whole seller. The high-quality of this ingredient ensures that your mouth receives the full benefits of green tea.

Oral Health Benefits of Green Tea  

  • Helps prevent cavities. The powerful antioxidants in green tea have been shown to naturally and effectively prevent cavities and slow tooth decay by countering the damaging effects of free radicals.
  • Eliminates bad breath. Polyphenols (antioxidant compounds) in green tea are known to be very effective in reducing stinky mouth odors because of their disinfectant and deodorizing abilities.
  • Fights off infections and viruses. The previously mentioned Polyphenols also possess antiviral properties that can protect the oral cavity from infection and viruses such as influenza. 

Reduces gum inflammation. Another type of antioxidant in green tea called catechin promotes periodontal health by interfering with the body's inflammatory response to harmful bacteria.

Does Dr. Brite Toothpaste Contain Caffeine?

Yes, all organic green tea extract has a very small amount of caffeine. This should not affect you or your children even when used 2-3 times per day. Though our products are made with all-natural ingredients, we still suggest you and your children do not swallow the formula. For any other questions or concerns please email us at, we look forward to hearing from you!
