What’s the Scoop on Coconut Oil Toothpaste?
Over the last few years, coconut oil has become increasingly popular for its endless health and wellness benefits.
It seems that this amazing fruit/nut/seed that produces coconut oil is good for everything from moisturizing your skin and hair, to aiding digestion, to washing your clothes, to remineralizing your teeth!
Although this may seem like new news to many of us today, the concept of using coconut oil to clean your teeth and support healthy gums has been around for centuries – especially in warmer climates where coconuts grow naturally and plentifully. The cleaning properties of coconut oil are time-tested and true.
Of the many uses and benefits of this miracle food, healthy teeth is definitely one of them.
Should I really brush my teeth with coconut oil toothpaste?
Coconut oil is a proven detoxifier that leaves your teeth and gums healthy due to its antibacterial qualities.
Coconut toothpaste that’s made with coconut oil and other all-natural ingredients helps to clean your teeth and gums and discourages the build-up of the acid-producing bacteria causing tooth decay in both children and adults. If your mouth maintains an acidic environment, it eventually demineralizes the structure of your teeth and causes decay.
Brushing with coconut toothpaste has the power to help support a healthy oral environment.
How can coconut toothpaste be as effective as regular toothpaste?
Coconut oil mixed with other natural ingredients like xylitol, pure water, and natural coconut and mint flavors, is highly effective in the form of toothpaste.
While regular toothpastes are effective, scientific research shows that brushing with coconut oil toothpaste will clean and brighten your teeth as well as support healthy gums.
Brushing with coconut oil toothpaste has the benefits of oil pulling in the convenience of a toothpaste.
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic tradition and it involves swishing coconut oil around in your mouth for 10-15 minutes at a time. It has seen a recent resurgence in popularity due to the known properties of coconut oil supporting health.
However, many people find the process of oil pulling to be inconvenient or too time consuming.
With Dr. Ginger’s natural Coconut Toothpaste, you can have all the benefits of coconut oil and oil pulling in the convenience of a deliciously flavored coconut-mint toothpaste.
