Anything,: Lack of the g6pd enzyme in ur body does not mean u can not use any toothpaste, unless u show reactions to the ingrediens which require that glucose-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme for metabolization, & that only if u have the habit of eating your toothpaste routinely. ! :-) kidding aside, the research has shown that brushing efficacy has no relationship to type, or even use of any toorhpaste!
