Coconut oil is better than any toothpaste

Coconut oil is better than any toothpaste

A fruit that is primarily grown in tropical regions around the world, coconuts have many health benefits. It’s “water” or milk is used around the world in cooking. It also contains electrolytes such as potassium that are essential to remaining hydrated and fueling muscles. Perhaps surprisingly, it’s been found that the fats in the milk, when consumed as part of a low fat diet, increase the metabolism and causing weight loss.

There are also many other health benefits found in consuming both the flesh and drinking the milk of coconuts. One of these is that it allows better insulin intake, thus decreasing the risk of diabetes. Another benefit is that it promotes kidney health and supports thyroid health.

Coconut oil has been a dietary and beauty staple for millennia, according to Complete Health and Happiness, and now its antibacterial, antiviral properties are being advocated as a mouth cleaner.

Does this mean that you can use coconut oil instead of the toothpaste you now use? With their being a whole range, from these vegan friendly toothpastes, to teeth whitening and fluoride based toothpastes, it comes as no surprise if the use of coconut oil is not considered to be a replacement. I doubt dentists like the Fort Wayne Dentist would recommend this, but it seems like nutritionists are saying exactly that. This is only natural as they have a product to sell and promote, and in supporting this new claim they’d likely lose profits.

Why is this? It’s because coconut oil kills microbes such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa that have a high lauric acid content. Its also a great source of healthy fats that have health benefits.

What that means is that its healthy for your mouth, according to nutritionists, in addition to providing resistance against tooth decay.

And science has discovered that coconut oil can fight candida albicans (a yeast that can cause infections).

So how do you make toothpaste with coconut oil? You simply mix it with baking soda, which is another alternative tooth paste, just without the health benefits of coconut oil. The baking soda cleans teeth and the coconut oil fights harmful bacteria, if it catches on dentists similar to Gary L. Cash, DDS might start recommending it.
