Toronto, Canada – Introducing qīī (pronounced “chee”), the world’s first drink that tackles oral care. The mouth is a complex environment. As you eat and drink throughout the day, your mouth bounces between acidic and alkaline, allowing plaque and cavity-causing bacteria to grow. Left untreated, bad breath, cavities, and even periodontal disease may form. But now, there’s qīī, a natural tea drink that improves your oral health, anytime, anywhere.
“So much of what we drink contributes to poor oral health. Instead of addressing that at the end of the day by brushing, we have created a drink that restores the mouth in-between brushing, so that damage never begins,” said qīī founder Ted Jin.
Made in the USA, qīī comes from the team at DoseBiome, a Toronto start-up focused on oral microbiome research that is on a mission to create new and innovative products designed to give people healthier smiles.
“Innovation in oral care has been stagnant for decades. We’re looking to shake up the industry by introducing anew way to care for your mouth –in a delicious drink format delivered right to your door,” said Jin. “We often take our oral health for granted. Finding easy, accessible ways to improve our habits is what motivates us at DoseBiome.”
Brushing, rinsing, flossing, and regular dentist visits keep oral biofilm (plaque) formation in check. However, despite even the best efforts, this isn’t always enough to prevent oral disease. qīī tackles the food sources of bad bacteria and keeps mouths healthy between morning and night.
Powered by the science of nature, qīī is formulated with XyVita™, a xylitol-containing formulation that works by reducing acidity and risk of tooth decay while freshening your breath. It is designed to reduce disease-causing bacteria in the mouth, such as S. mutans and P. gingivalis, by up to 80%. These bacteria can lead to bad breath, cavities, and periodontal disease. They feed and thrive on things like sugar found in drinks, forming biofilm (plaque) and acids as their waste products.
The pH scale runs from 1 (most acidic) to 14 (most alkaline). The pH level of qīī sits nicely in the middle with a neutral pH level of 7, which balances out acidity. Acidity is a major cause of enamel erosion, so without it, mouths are healthier. qīī is available in two delicious flavors, Lemongrass Ginger Green Tea and Classic Oolong Tea which are brewed with certified organic loose leaf teas, and sweetened with XyVita sourced from non-GMO sources. Replace your afternoon beverage choice. Drink qīī for a healthier mouth that has the confidence to get closer, taste stronger, laugh harder, and speak louder. To learn more visit drinkqii.com
