Mouth Ulcers – Causes & Tips

Mouth ulcers are small lesions or sores that appear in the mouth. They can be inside your lips or cheeks, and on your gums or tongue. They can range from being uncomfortable, to very painful especially when aggravated – for example when chewing or talking.

Mouth ulcers are often caused by the simplest thing; such as accidentally biting your cheek or burning your mouth on hot food. Aside from accidents and mouth injuries, ulcers can also be caused by;

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Dentures or braces
  • Hormonal changes
  • Food sensitivities or a reaction to certain medications
  • Certain conditions, like diabetes or tuberculosis

Unlike topical applications that are often difficult to apply and frequently ineffective, our formula targets mouth ulcers in a mess-free, simple capsule solution. Our capsules contain a combination of vitamins B, C and E, along with zinc and folic acid to aid wound healing, support immunity and maintain tissue integrity during inflammation. To relieve mouth ulcers we suggest taking 2 of of our capsules, one a day for 2 days.

Wondering what else you can do to help relieve mouth ulcers? We suggest in the short term, keeping hydrated, eating cooling foods (e.g. cucumber, watermelon or maybe suck on ice cubes). Avoid acidic or salty foods and drink which may aggravate any mouth ulcers. Weak saltwater rinses can also help.

For the long term, remember mouth ulcers frequently appear when run down or in times of extra stress, so be kind to yourself and think of this as a sign to slow down, maybe take things a little easier, enjoy an extra yoga class or maybe to get some extra sleep. If mouth ulcers persist or continue to reoccur, this may be a sign of some other underlying issues and a visit to your health professional is strongly recommended.
