Santa Clara, Calif. — Nuvora Inc. announced today the availability of a new soft lozenge to help provide relief for those who suffer from dry mouth.
Salese is a sugar-free and alcohol-free lozenge with Nuvora's patented SuRe (sustained release) delivery system, which enables the lozenge to relieve dry mouth for one hour or longer, the company stated. The SuRe technology allows the lozenge to dissolve slower and release active ingredients at a more sustained rate than such traditional dry mouth products as toothpastes, mouthwash and chewing gum, which may last only minutes, the company said. The technology is designed to also neutralize acid pH levels, killing 99.9% of bacteria and helping to eliminate germs that may cause bad breath.
Dry mouth is caused by a lack of saliva production, which can occur as a side effect of numerous prescription and over-the-counter medications for pain, allergies, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and diabetes, as well as a symptom of Sjoren’s Syndrome and Lupus, the company stated. Dry mouth is also common in cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy around the head and neck. Drinking plenty of water, chewing sugar-free gum or sucking on sugar-free hard candy are helpful ways to stimulate saliva production, but may be short lived, the company stated.
“For someone who suffers from dry mouth on a daily basis, a few minutes of relief just isn’t enough,” explains Bolko Stolberg, EVP of Nuvora Inc., creator of Salese. “With this unique patented technology, we can now offer longer lasting relief to not only provide comfort to dry mouth sufferers but to improve the overall health of the mouth and gums — helping to combat tooth decay, inflammations and other serious oral infections from developing.”
Salese's key ingredients include Xanthan gum — which locks in moisture — essential oils and Xylitol that help to destroy bacteria and prevent tooth decay, sodium bicarbonate to help neutralize pH levels to protect tooth enamel and zinc to prevent bad breath.
Salese is available for $5.99 in peppermint and wintergreen flavors at DrugStore.com, Walgreens.com and ShopRite.
