Periodontitis Remedies

When Covid-19 started going around I began taking an extra 500 mg of vitamin C and 50 mg of zinc picolinate per day to keep my immune system strong. After a month of this I ran out of the zinc picolinate and stopped taking it.

A couple of days later, I realized that my gums were more tender and bleeding a bit more than they had for weeks. This made me think that maybe the zinc picolinate had been helping my gums heal. I looked it up online to find that there are some studies suggesting a correlation between low zinc levels and bleeding gums.

I now take 100 mg of zinc picolinate in the morning and 100 mg in the evening and my mouth is loving it.
