Metallic Taste in Mouth

Suddenly, I began to have a metallic taste in my mouth.  Of course, I immediately became anxious. I began to remember what happened to me back in 1996.

In the fall of 1996 I had a sudden metallic taste in my mouth. Everything had a metallic taste. The sweeter the food the more metallic and bitter the taste. Eventually, the only thing I could eat was chicken noodle soup.

The doctor examined me and ran several blood tests but could not determine the cause of the metallic taste. I suffered with this for three months, and suddenly, right after Christmas, my taste buds returned to normal and I could eat again! I never knew what caused the sudden metallic taste in  my mouth.

Therefore, when this metallic taste reared its ugly head again, I decided to do some of my own research. Unfortunately, back in 1996 I could not reserach it because I did not have a computer and did not know about the vast knowledge of the world wide web.

What causes a metallic taste in your mouth?

  • Poor oral hygiene – Teeth and gum problems such as gingivitis, periodontitis and tooth infection from not brushing and flossing on a regular basis.
  • Prescription drugs – Antibiotics such as tetracycline, the gout medicine allopurinol, lithium and some cardiac medications can cause this metallic taste because your body absorbs the medicine and it comes out in the saliva.
  • Over-the-counter medicinals– Multivitamins that contain copper, zinc or chromium and cold remedies such as zinc lozenges can cause a metallic taste. Other over-the-counter products that can cause a metallic taste are prenatal vitamins,  iron and calcium supplements.
  • Infections – Upper respiratory infections, colds and sinusitis can give you a metallic taste in your mouth.
  • Cancer treatment – Patients being treated for cancer with chemotherapy or radiation may experience a metallic taste.
  • Pregnancy – During the early stages of pregnancy some women experience a  metallic taste in their mouth.
  • Dementia – People with dementia often have taste abnormalities because their taste buds are connected by nerves to the brain.
  • Chemical exposures – Exposure to mercury or lead and inhaling high levels of these substances often can produce a metallic taste.

After reviewing these eight culprits  for  “what causes a metallic taste in your mouth”, I decided that oral hygiene was the most propable cause for the metallic taste. So I decided to find the best natural toothpaste to cure the metallic taste in my mouth.

Best Natural Toothpaste

During my research,  I saw an advertisement for a natural toothpaste called Superblue.  It is a non fluoride toothpaste that contains Nano Silver, Teatree Oil, Peppermint and Iodine.  I remembered how my husband told me about the great healing benefits that were in collidial silver and tea tree oil so I decided to order the non fluoride natural tootpaste.

The natural toothpaste was rather expensive, but I figured if it could remove the metallic taste in my mouth,  it was well worth it!  Anything was better than the anxiety I went  through because of the metallic taste  in my mouth in 1996.

I received the Superblue natural toothpaste in the mail just before Christmas. I  brushed my teeth with it two times, and walla! The metalic taste in my mouth disappeared! The metallic taste has not come back! I was able to enjoy all the great foods of Christmas!

Something else I want to mention. My gums tend to bleed when I floss, but since I have started using Superblue non fluoride natural toothpaste,  my gums have stopped bleeding.

Since Superblue is a natural toothpaste that is fluoride free and contains the healing properties of nano sliver and tea tree oil and the great taste of peppermint, I now use it every day!

This is the best natural toothpaste I have ever tried! I highly recommend Superblue non fluoride natural toothpaste to anyone who has problems with their gums or with a metallic taste in their mouth.  I’m telling you this really is the best natural toothpaste! It  really works!

You can find Superblue non fluoride natural toothpaste in my supplement store.
