Would you brush your teeth with coconut oil? I do, and this is why.
Coconut oil, from the research I have done, is far more effective at fighting, preventing tooth decay than deadly fluoride. Coconut oil possesses powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. In fact, just one spoonful of coconut oil can prevent cavities and tooth decay more effectively than any store bought toothpaste.
Did you know that over 90 percent of the toothpaste sold in the United States contains fluoride. Using fluoride toothpaste has been linked to many health problems especially in children because fluoride is a toxic industrial waste. Even small amounts of fluoride can be very poisonous and cause acute fluoride toxicity.
That’s why the FDA mandates a poison warning on all fluoride toothpaste sold in America.
Coconut Oil is More Effective that Toxic Fluoride
The research from the Athlone Institute of Technology, found that coconut oil successfully inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria Streptococcus mutans — an acid-producing bacterium that is a major cause of tooth decay. Coconut oil attacks harmful bacteria in your mouth The fatty acids in coconut oil destroy Lactobacillus and Streptococcus bacteria that cause cavities.
Additionally, coconut oil prevents gingivitis and does not cause irritations in the mouth.
