Ortek Therapuetics Launches Prebiotic Chews

These soft chews are designed to deliver nutrients to support tooth enamel and healthy bones.

Ortek Therapuetics, inc. will be expanding its BasicBites® product line with the addition of BasicBites SynergyPlus™ soft chew. This product combines Ortek’s microbiome oral care technology with nutrients to help support tooth enamel and maintain healthy bones and immune and cardiovascular systems, according to a press release from the company.

The company’s patent pending formula is said to include arginine bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, which work together to create a healthy, balanced oral pH environment that protects teeth from harm caused by dry mouth and sugary foods and drinks. Arginine is an amino acid that is said to promote the beneficial pH-raising bacteria discovered in plaque, resulting in a buffering effect on tooth surfaces that helps neutralie harmful plaque. The calcium carbonate encourages healthy tooth enamel and bones, per the company’s statement.

BasicBites SynergyPlus soft chews are also formulated with K2VITAL®, which the company describes as a K2 MK-7 formula designed to transport calcium into bones and teeth; and Vitamin D3, which helps the body absorb calcium into the bloodstream and maintains strong teeth and bones.

These soft chews will be available in chocolate and caramel flavors. The company is developing additional BasicBites line extensions that it plans to announce in the future.
