Plant extracts from Cistus incanus L. and Scutellaria lateriflora L.: their combination has antimicrobial and antibiofilm properties, preventing periodontal diseases

A new study published in the scientific journal Foods shows that the combination of Cistus incanus L. and Scutellaria lateriflora L. (PLANoràl®) has promising and useful effects for the treatment of gingivitis and for the eubiosis of the oral cavity.

These plant extracts contain a very complex mix of polyphenols, stable after simulated in vitro oral digestion, and, when combined into a patented blend, show specific antimicrobial activity against Porphyromonas gingivalis, a major pathogen responsible for severe and chronic periodontitis.  The synergic combination inhibits bacterial growth and reduces its invasiveness.

Moreover, PLANoràl® reduces the biofilm formation (subgingival plaque) by about 80%.
