Mouthwash And Its Effects On Exercise

This is news. A recent research has proved that an antibacterial mouthwash can effect in reducing the effects of cardiovascular benefits in exercise. Now, exercise helps in managing the blood pressure of the body. But, mouthwash effects the bacteria present in the mouth in such a way that it interferes the blood pressure managing complex mechanism of the body in a negative way.

Many of us aren’t really aware about the role of mouth bacteria in our over-all health. There have been studies that have proved that there has been a connection between bacteria and risk of esophageal cancer or gum disease. Studies have even showed that mouth bacterium can be responsible for effecting respiratory health and colorectal tumors as well. Now, this recent research is about their role in getting cardiovascular benefits from exercise. The study is carried out by Raul Bescos, the lead author and lecturer at the University of Plymouth, United Kingdom.

Mouthwash And Its Effects On Exercise

As per the Raul Bescos, scientists know that when you exercise the blood vessels open up due to the increase in production levels of Nitric oxide resulting into vasodilation or diameter increase in blood vessels. Further, it also increases the blood flow circulation of active muscles.

As per Bescos the Nitric oxide breaks down into Nitrate and further initiates the circular molecular reaction that in turn results in managing the lowering effects of exercise on blood pressure. The research done in the past 10 years shows that the salivary glands absorb the nitrate and the saliva excretes it. There are certain bacteria in mouth have the ability to convert this important molecule – nitrate into nitrite thus leading to increased production of nitric oxide inside the body.

The study carried out by Bescos’s team included 23 healthy adults who exercised in two acute bouts. The participants ran on a treadmill for 30 minutes. The researching team monitored the blood pressure for 2 hours.

The participants also rinsed their mouth using a mint flavored anti-bacterial mouth wash after 1 sec, 30s minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes of the run. Even the saliva samples were collected from the participants before and after two hours of exercising.

The study found that there was an average reduction of 5.2 mg of mercury in systolic blood pressure after exercising for 1 hour. Contrasting to the same when the participants rinsed their mouth with antibacterial mouthwash.

The result show that the use of mouth wash lead to reduction in the blood pressure by 60% after exercise within the first hour and furthermore after 2 hours cancelled it entirely.

There were participations from every department– School for special needs, speech, Visual Stimulation, psychotherapy and so on. I saw their bright faces filled with passion along with their loved ones.

Rehab day viewers

Function started with prayer chanted by students followed by play games which allow them to practice learned skills. It was amazing to see these kids playing lemon & spoon, find and pick the toys from sand, mix and match vegetables and other athletic activities. Well, I believe these activities will bring enjoyment and improve learning abilities in them.  The teachers and parents were the organizers and also participated in various other events.
