What Is (SMMRT)®

SELECTIVE MICROBIAL METABOLISM REGULATION TECHNOLOGY 

Not ALL bacteria are bad! SMMRT was developed in 2008 and uses nutrients that stop harmful bacteria from consuming sugars and carbohydrates and switch them to eating proteins and amino acids (similar to a Keto diet). This unique approach focuses on using nutrient pressure to influence who lives in the oral microbiome, shifting microbes from bad behaviors to beneficial behaviors (and by-products) that ultimately create a balanced oral environment that decreases inflammation, acid production, and smelly by-products, which results in an improved quality of life for your pet.

SMMRT®  is clinically-validated to selectively favor the growth of beneficial microbes in the mouth (including under the gumline) so they out-compete the bad in any given environment.

TEEF for Life fights the bacterial imbalance in your pet's mouth. Our patented formula decreases inflammation and bad breath and improves your pet's quality of life.
