Natural Cures for Cracked Corners of the Mouth

Suffering with cracked corners of your mouth?

lemonade-225x2521. Check your water intake

Are you drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day?

In general, consume 3 quarts of water daily.

2. B vitamin deficiency

“The vitamin B deficiencies affect the oral structures. A common oral effect of the vitamin B (complex) deficiency is a burning sensation in the mouth, especially on the tongue. The other oral symptoms include cracked and red lips, inflammation of the lining of the oral cavity and the tongue, oral ulcers, cracks at the corners of the mouth (angular cheilitis), and a sore throat. Vitamin B-2 ( riboflavin) is primarily needed for the breakdown of fat, ketone bodies, carbohydrate and proteins. However, a riboflavin (vitamin B2) deficiency causes ariboflavinosis, which manifests as cracked lips, inflammation of the tongue and dryness or burning of the oral cavity.” [source]

B-Vitamins play essential roles in many functions of the body

Active forms of vitamins are those that can be directly utilized by the body immediately. Active B-Complex features a potent blend containing the active forms of the B vitamins. Free from top 8 allergens.

Suggested Use:
Adults take 1 or 2 capsules daily, or as recommended by a healthcare professional.

Consume quality animal protein daily along with a wide variety of vegetables, greens, seeds and nuts.

Add extra B12. B12 food sources include liver, fish, and red meat. Activated B12-Guard by Perque has a good B12 supplement that I recommend everyone takes along with Active B Complex.

3. Add 1 Tbs Carlson cod liver oil  daily or ProOmega 2000

4. Eat quality animal protein

Consume animal protein daily helps your body get enough B12, iron and zinc.

Two to three times a day, consume animal protein like wild caught salmon, free range chicken and eggs, and pasture-raised meat.

4. Topical Oils

Topically you can apply raw unprocessed coconut oil and alternatively, Vitamin E oil (try Unique E Mixed Tocopherols) applied to the corners of the mouth can help soothe.

5. Digestive Weakness

When the digestion system is not healthy, nutrients aren’t absorbed properly. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet is the first step in healing the gut. Pick up a copy of my book, The Reclaim Diet. This book will guide you through implementing a healing, read-food way of eating.
