Ricerfarma Gengigel Gel Review


Manufacturer’s Claim

This review focuses on the relevant details about the product to determine if it really can relieve tenderness in the mouth as the manufacturer claims. The manufacturer says that it is clinically proven to relieve pain and protect the injury while it is healing. It also claims to improve gum growth and reduce the recession of gums.

Formula

The only active ingredient in this product is hyaluronan/ hyaluronic acid. Each 100 grams of the product contains 200 mg of the active ingredient.

Hyaluronic acid is one of the major components of the extracellular matrix – a group of molecules that sit in between the cells in various tissues in the body. This physiological role is very important because it contributes to the healing of damaged tissue. Not only does it provide the molecular skeleton for repairing the damage, but it also has some cell signaling functions too. It helps stem cells to move across the injury to where the damage is so that they can replace the injured cells. It also helps to reduce inflammation by acting as an antioxidant and it works as a stimulant to cause cells in the wounded area to grow.

We believe this is a really great ingredient to have included but this product is missing other ingredients to perform other functions like pain relief.

Instructions

Gengigel must be applied directly to the affected area. The manufacturer does not specify how many times a day the product may be used but from similar products we have reviewed, we found that the optimal frequency is three to four times per day.

Cost

0.68 fl oz can be bought online for $11.99. Certain third-party websites offer package deals where a customer can buy a pack of two for $19.99 or a pack of three for $22.65. These prices do not include shipping or taxes.

Possible Side Effects

The product does contain Xylitol as its sweetener so anyone who is allergic should not use this product. It is also possible for some people to be more sensitive to it and experience side effects like diarrhea. There is very limited evidence that high doses of it for long periods of time can cause tumors.

Guarantee

We could not find any evidence of the guarantee or returns policy provided by the manufacturer and different third-party retailers have their own policies. The lack of the satisfaction guarantee from the manufacturer does suggest that they are not extremely confident in their product.

Ricerfarma Gengigel Gel Review – The Bottom Line

The price of this product is really quite affordable and the active ingredient is very well researched. The major problem with this product is that it is lacking information in the instructions and side effects description and that it doesn’t offer a satisfaction guarantee. Whether the manufacturer is intentionally trying to mislead the customer or they simply did not completely think their information through, the result is that the product is just not as good as some of the others on the market.
