Cleaning your mouth and cleaning your arteries could be as simple as a once-a-day oral rinse according to Biomedical Development Corporation. The study was designed to see if there were improvements in oral health, which there were, but the study also produced lower LDL cholesterol levels. The trial studies are being conducted by the Center for Oral Health Research at the University of Kentucky.
The active ingredient is a proprietary formula based on iodine. About 40 percent of the world’s population is thought to be at risk of iodine deficiency. Recent clinical studies shows what appears to be a closer link between oral health and cardiovascular health. Although scientists cannot yet fully explain how the two are connected, there is ample statistical evidence to suggest that gum disease and heart disease are closely related.
Phyllis Siegel, CEO of BDC, said that while results of its ongoing clinical trials are pending, a specific formulation of the product called iCLEAN®, designed for general mouth cleaning, will soon be available.

 Biomedical Development Corporation (BDC) on April 23, 2013, will present data to the American Academy of Oral Medicine showing that its oral rinse was safe and effective at fighting gingivitis in a recent clinical trial. But the most surprising finding of the study was that users of the oral rinse showed lower LDL cholesterol levels than the placebo group.
