NOW brand supplements have it and can be found at Amazon or iHerb or .... Most major on-line supplement vendors has it.

"NOW® Calcium Carbonate is a basic calcium supplement that contains one of the highest concentrations of elemental calcium (about 40%), making it an optimal formulation for supporting healthy bones and teeth. NOW® has been selling powdered supplements since 1968 because of their distinct advantages. The powdered form is 100% pure, and free of fillers and preservatives, much lower in cost, easy to digest and can be taken in desired potencies."

Also Life Extension brand carries it.

I checked Swanson Vitamins, one of the companies I've used for many years, and they have the Now brand available there https://www.swansonvitamins.com/NWF80...tail?n=3758+16

H2O2 is unstable. Given time, it will turn into H2O.

A more simple toothpaste, and one that I use, is 3 tablespoons of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. That's it. Just scrape a little onto your toothbrush and brush away. The coconut oil is antibacterial, so it is good for your gums and will last a long time in your container. you can also add a few drops of essential oil for taste. I don't bother.

They are probably using calcium carbonate for the grit factor.

as a supplement it is trash and I wouldn't put it in my body.
Just brush with straight baking soda..no need for all the fussy stuff.

If baking soda is too rough for your gums you need to get to work
on some kind of oral protocol.

i only plan on using the calcium carbonate to make toothpaste...

I'm not sure if it was the baking soda or h2o2. But when i used the stuff I made...my gums turn a little reddish and it definitely is harsher than normal toothpaste

plus the baking soda is just disgusting...and it does not mix well....
I'm gonna try the calcium carbonate and see how that goes....

tom's first ingredient is calcium carbonate....one of the last ingredients is baking soda....

I like Now Foods, XyliWhite. Less than $4 at iHerb.

Functional Ingredients: Xylitol (25%), Sodium Bicarbonate (9%) (whitening), Papain (whitening)
Ingredients: Water, Xylitol, Hydrated Silica, Sorbitol, Sodium Bicarbonate, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Natural Mint Flavor, Carrageenan (Chondrus crispus), Tea Tree Leaf Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), Papain and Potassium Sorbate.


I mostly try to find anything that contains no sodium laurel sulfate (SLS). Recently I've been making my own as I've said before. Baking soda and coconut oil. I understand that the baking soda in this format is to harsh for you.

isn't sorbitol an artifical sweetener? and bad?
isn't Carrageenan also not good?
and natural mint flaor just means they are no longer using pure peppermint oil....otherwise, of course, they'd list it as peppermint oil...
and Potassium Sorbate is a preservative....

I'm going to try and make my own again.
this time, I'll be using calcium carbonate and glycerin and peppermint oil....and perhaps a tiny bit of h2o2.

Limitme, here is a video that mountain rose herbs put out...they posted it on facebook yesterday. Im sure buying all this stuff might be a bit expensive, but if you buy it specifically just for making toothpowder, then you will probably be set for life, you will never have to buy the stuff again....a little bit goes along way with the powder..... Im wondering why they used sage though.
