The Natural Dentist Health Gums Mouth Rinse Review and Giveaway

If your gums bleed when you floss or brush your teeth, and you experience the "pink in the sink" syndrome, you may want to give The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Rinse a try.

The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse is all natural. It does not contain alcohol or artificial ingredients. It contains Aloe Vera as its active ingredient. It also contains other natural medicinal components such as Echinacea, goldenseal, calendula, and grapefruit seed extract that can help calm gum inflammation.

I dread going to the dentist, I really dislike the poking around in my mouth,while a bright light is shining down in my face. I love products that will limit my time that I am trapped in the dentist chair. I really liked this mouth rinse. It didn't burn and wasn't harsh like the other ones with alcohol as an ingredient. I didn't feel the need to rinse my mouth out with water after using it, like the ones that burn your mouth. I was very excited to try one that was all natural. It did soothe my gums, and left a nice refreshing feeling in my mouth after brushing.

The Natural Dentist has several other products that I want to get my kids to try. Check out their website for a list of all the products they carry.

SpermCheck Fertility Giveaway

Planning to get pregnant soon and want to prepare? Trying to get pregnant and having issues? Introducing SpermCheck® Fertility, the fast, accurate, affordable, at-home sperm count test for men, now available online from

Each year 11 million couples will try to have a baby, but about 7 million of those couples will have fertility issues and the most commonly accepted myth is that the woman is mostly to blame. The fact is that about 50% of all infertility problems are directly attributed to the male, and most of them are mainly due to low sperm count. Still many men are reluctant to get their sperm tested because up until now they had to go to their healthcare provider and perform the test in the doctor’s office or lab. Such laboratory sperm tests can be costly, as well as embarrassing.

Now with a new at-home test kit called SpermCheck® Fertility, men can test their sperm count in the privacy of their home. SpermCheck Fertility is the only FDA approved, 98% accurate home test for men – it’s as accurate as a lab test but more affordable and convenient. In just 10 minutes, the easy-to-read results indicate a normal or below normal sperm count.  The SpermCheck® Fertility test costs substantially less than a visit to the doctor without the embarrassment and indignities of providing a semen sample to a doctor or nurse.

Experts agree that a sperm count test should be the very first and essential step in fertility testing for couples – it’s non-invasive and can help eliminate or identify a potential stumbling block to conception.

Whether you are planning a pregnancy in the near future or have been trying to conceive, this inexpensive home test can help couples to save time, money and frustration.
