The gentle power of chitotEK™
By integrating the restorative benefits of Chitosan with the pH balancing properties of Arginine, we’ve developed ChitoTek—an innovation inspired by nature and scientifically proven. Our products each deliver the benefits of ChitoTek in various ways. MOISYN is designed to effectively address the symptoms of dry mouth while keeping your tissue, teeth, and gums clean, pain-free, and functioning while SYNEDENT and SYNEDENT FLX focus on oral hygiene and cavity prevention.
NATURALLY DERIVED INGREDIENTS MEET PROVEN SCIENCE
*Chitosan used in our products is derived from the shells of shrimp. Most shellfish allergies are caused by a muscle protein tropomyosin. The highly purified chitosan derivatives in Prisyna products are from the shrimp shell and not muscle tissue. Those who suffer from a shellfish allergy should consult a qualified medical professional about use of Prisyna products and potential allergen testing.
