Did you ever wonder why we have this stuff called spit in our mouth? Good question! It’s officially called saliva and it is a clear liquid that’s made in your mouth 24 hours a day, every day.

It’s made up mostly of water, with a few other chemicals thrown in. It’s produced by the salivary glands. The salivary glands secrete about 2 to 4 pints of spit into your mouth every day! That’s quite a bit of spit!

And you see, there’s a reason for all this spit or saliva! Saliva serves several purposes. It wets food and makes it easier to swallow. And a dry tongue can’t tell how things taste — it needs saliva to keep it wet!

Saliva also helps kick-start the digestive process. It helps break down the food while it’s still in your mouth. And special chemicals called enzymes found in saliva help the digestive process!

Why is saliva important?

Saliva Trivia!

But that’s not all saliva does! Saliva helps clean the inside of your mouth by washing away bacteria and acid that build-up in your mouth after you eat. The enzymes in saliva also help to fight off infections in the mouth. Who knew saliva was so interesting!

But saliva alone is not enough to maintain a healthy mouth. You need to brush and floss your teeth, and specifically, brush your tongue to maintain a healthy mouth.  While saliva is effective at rinsing the smooth surfaces of the teeth and gums, it needs help when it comes to the rough texture of the tongue.

The TUNG Brush and Gel system is perfectly designed to help you keep your mouth healthy! Cleaning your tongue and getting rid of the bacteria that your saliva does not rinse away is what the TUNG brush does best!

The TUNG Brush is made to get deep into those crevices and get rid of that gas-producing bacteria that causes bad breath and can lead to gum disease!
