  • Triclosan is used to act against bacteria but it has also been found to disrupt the normal functioning of hormones in the body, which can cause a range of serious health issues. In experiments with rats and mice, the use of this chemical resulted in bone disfigurement as early as in the womb.

    Why is this toothpaste good for your teeth & gums?

     

    Coconut oil

    • It has scientifically proven abilities to destroy bacteria that cause teeth cavities.

    • Types of Streptococcus bacteria regularly live inside your mouth. They are most often the culprits for tooth decay, especially the acid-creating Streptococcus mutans. The good news is that coconut oil effectively prevents these bacteria to grow.
    • Furthermore, regular rubbing of coconut oil into the gums for 10 minutes per day in the duration of 21 days has been shown to decrease the growth of Streptococcus mutans, as well as the accumulation of mucus and bacteria on the teeth.  Not only that: coconut oil keeps the balance of lipids that normally exist on the surface of your tongue, unlike the lipid-disrupting foaming agents.
