5 Ways To Detox Your Gums
A simple swish and swirl of your favorite oil is the answer to fresher breath, whiter teeth, and a toxin-free body. The practice of oil pulling literally pulls toxins from the oral cavity, which is then spit out and cleared from the body. A research study indicated that oil pulling reduced plaque-induced gingivitis, and the bacterium Streptococcus mutans, which is known to cause cavities. So grab a jar of coconut oil from the kitchen counter, and get pulling!
Last, but definitely not least, we can’t forget probiotics. Balancing the good bacteria in our gut with fermented foods and kombucha also affects the mouth! Taking oral probiotics can be extremely beneficial, especially if cavities are a frequent occurrence. The more good bacteria you have, the more of a defense you have against the bad bacteria, reducing the incidence of inflammation and infection.
