Nourish3D and Colgate Unveil a 3D Printed Food Supplement for Better Oral Hygiene

Published on March 24, 2022 by Madeleine P.

While 3D printing is regularly in the news in the health sector, it is currently rare to see the technology associated with dietary supplements and oral care. That’s why Nourish3D, a British company specializing in 3D printed dietary supplements, has partnered with Colgate, the world-famous toothpaste company. Together, the two companies want to combine their expertise and 3D print dietary supplements with the same agents found in Colgate products. Called Nutristacks, this product combines food benefits and oral health.

Through this partnership, and the production of Nutristacks, Nourish3D hopes to help users to “Achieve on-the-go, better oral health whilst nourishing your mind & body. All in one tasty, refreshing & convenient chew.” The two companies behind the project specify however that Nutristacks is not intended to replace daily tooth brushing, but to bring a real added value to oral hygiene, helping users to target specific problem areas similar to using mouthwash. In fact the companies suggest that the vitamins be used in addition to a robust oral hygiene routine which includes visiting a dentist at least twice a year, limiting sugary and acidic foods, flossing after brushing and of course brushing twice a day.
