Coconut Oil Is Better Than Any Toothpaste According To New Study
Coconut oil in oral care is relatively new thing. Coconut oil was firstly used as an alternative for toothpaste, but now it is used for recovering cavities.
The toothpastes we usually use are filled with harmful chemicals that may cause some health issues.
Infections in the mouth may cause many health problems such cardiovascular diseases, stroke, dementia or respiratory issues. That is why you will need to go your dentist frequently in order to avoid health issues. Few new studies can offer us a few good reasons why we need to start using coconut oil for oral care. Coconut oil is completely natural anti-bacterial product that can inhibit the bacterial growth in the mouth.
You will need to avoid sugary foods, because streptococcus consume the sugar and drop the pH worth in your mouth to acidic levels. This conditions demineralize your teeth and causes tooth decay.
The lead scientist at the Athlone Institute of Innovation, Dr. Damine Brady claims that:
”Integrating enzyme-modified coconut oil into oral hygiene items would be an appealing alternative to chemical additives, especially as it works at fairly low concentrations. Likewise, with increasing antibiotic resistance, it is very important that we turn our focus on new ways to combat microbial infection.”
So, our advice is to stay away from harmful chemicals and prepare natural toothpaste. Here’s how to prepare natural toothpaste that is very beneficial
- Half cup of coconut oil
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of baking soda
- 15 to 30 drops of peppermint, burglars or lemon oil
The preparation is very simple. Just mix all of the ingredients and your toothpaste is ready.
You can also try oil pulling. Swish coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes daily and spit it after.
