Coconut oil can be so much better for your oral health than shop-bought kinds of toothpaste.
While many kinds of toothpaste claim to protect your mouth from bacteria, researchers have discovered that coconut oil is actually probably better at doing the job.
Coconut oil was found in tests to be totally effective at killing Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria that is responsible for tooth erosion leading to oral problems like tooth decay, bad breath, and mouth infections.
Natural coconut oil has powerful anti-bacterial properties and kills the bacteria Candida albicans.
Not only does it keep your mouth healthy and taste delicious, coconut oil, when used on the teeth, is a powerful natural tooth whitening agent, that works without any of the bleach that is often found in home whitening kits.
When used together with baking soda, coconut oil is transformed into an effective toothpaste that will rival any of the shops bought products.
How to Use Coconut Oil as Toothpaste:
To use coconut oil as a toothpaste, it can either be mixed together to form a paste or can be used individually by first coating your toothbrush in coconut oil and then dip into baking soda.
The baking soda is also helpful for mouth health and helps keep the teeth white.
Infections in the mouth can be particularly dangerous, and once teeth are infected with a particularly bad infection, they often need to be extracted with no way to save them.
Brushing and flossing are essential to keep your entire mouth healthy and free of bacteria and infections.
Candida infections can inhibit symptoms such as chronic fatigue, stomach, and digestive problems.
Coconut oil will help revamp your health and beauty routine.
As well as being an effective toothpaste, it can be used as a moisturizer, on normal and particularly dry skin is a great natural deodorant, can be used to naturally remove make-up and to soften and condition dry hair.
