This new research focuses on reducing blood pressure by increasing Nitric Oxide production.
It represents the icing on our benefits of tongue cleaning cake:
"Frequency of Tongue Cleaning Impacts the Human Tongue Microbiome Composition and Enterosalivary Circulation of Nitrate
The oral microbiome has the potential to provide an important symbiotic function in human blood pressure physiology by contributing to the generation of Nitric Oxide (NO), an essential cardiovascular signalling molecule.
Oral microbial communities are proposed to supplement host NO production by reducing dietary nitrate to nitrite via bacterial nitrate reductases. Unreduced dietary nitrate is delivered to the oral cavity in saliva, a physiological process termed the enterosalivary circulation of nitrate.
Tongue cleaning frequency was a predictor of changes in systolic blood pressure and tongue microbiome composition.
These data suggest that management of the tongue microbiome by regular cleaning together with adequate dietary intake of nitrate provide an opportunity for the improvement of resting systolic blood pressure.
Thus, regular tongue hygiene both selects for a favourable microbiome and “revs up” the activity of the community.
(In Conclusion) From our analysis, regular tongue cleaning results in a tongue microbiome that has a greater ability to reduce nitrite to NO, and conversely, failure to clean the tongue daily results in a microbiome composition that is less favourable to NO production."
"There is a clear association between oral health and cardiovascular disease that is related to the production of nitric oxide. The oral microbiome is responsible for 50% of our daily nitric oxide production. Tongue scraping to remove the 'bad' bacteria, food particles and debris allow for the 'good' bacteria to flourish and generate Nitric Oxide. I personally use the AMANO tongue scraper daily and highly recommend it."

"Taste perception can often decline in later life, but this doesn’t always have to be the case. In this blog from AMANO Tongue Cleansers, they look at why taste can lessen in later life and what can be done to try and reverse this decline."
"The AMANO tongue cleanser encourages people to give their tongues some TLC and is now the best-selling tongue cleaner in Harrods."

"The tongue scraper ... useful"
" I am extremely passionate about tongue cleansing and have personally tried virtually every brand on the US market. Until recently I hadn't known about AMANO Tongue Cleansers, but since receiving one it has truly changed my life! Previously I was using Dr Tung's tongue scrapers, which I thought were good. AMANO blows them out of the water, however!
AMANO Tongue Cleansers are so much better made, of far superior materials, are ergonomically shaped, easier to use, better looking, and are much more effective. Instead of the 10 scrapes I had to use before, the AMANO gets my tongue clean in just two swipes. On top of that, I can reach way back to the base (far back) of my tongue without gagging, so I cover about twice as much area with 20% of the effort. AMANO has found a perfect marriage between form and function."
"It's great! Good quality product. It has my seal of approval."
"My patients really love this product. So simple to use - no manual dexterity or clever technique required. And the results are extraordinary - sweeter breath and better tasting food and drink. No wonder they love it."
"It simply does exactly what it should! In just a few scrapes my tongue was sparkly clean and my mouth fresh. I found it comfortable and easy to clean and store in its box. I rate the AMANO Tongue Cleanser 10 out of 10."
"My tongue felt very clean and I was surprised how much debris I was able to remove, with my AMANO Tongue Cleanser. Crucially the AMANO did not make me gag. Since the tongue cleaning experience is pleasant, I am more likely to maintain the routine - and that makes the AMANO very different to other brushes and scrapers I have tried."
"I really like the feel of the AMANO Tongue Cleanser. There's no doubt about how thoroughly it is cleaning the tongue. I love the design with the 'funky' handles and feel this will be a great selling point ... (the) website with the Star Wars scroll is brilliant."
He response was;
"≠ interesting question"
(Using the AMANO) "Was a very interesting experience and certainly a useful tool ! Thanks again."
"The packaging is convenient and easy to carry around. The handles are great to hold and what a lovely pattern. I love the leaflet inside. The lifespan of this product is fantastic. You have just given me the best gift a hygienist could have. Thank you."
"Tongue Scrapers offer an option for halitosis"
We agree Oral B, the dental evidence is compelling + don't forget all the other benefits of a clean tongue
