These supplements may help support saliva production
- Sea Buckthorn Oil: Helps support the mucous membranes. Take as a powder in water, juice or smoothie, look for Omega 7 SBA24 Sea Buckthorn Oil capsules formulation.
- Calcium: Absorption is improved if taken with vitamin D and magnesium and may help to avoid jawbone erosion.
- Black Cohosh: May help to balance oestrogen levels and relieve symptoms. Not for prolonged use.
- Dong Quai: May help with balancing hormone levels. It has an anti-coagulant effect, so it is essential that you don’t use it leading up to any surgical or dental procedures and tell your dentist you’ve been taking it.
As always check with your doctor if you are taking prescribed drugs or have any existing, or hormone-sensitive condition.
