You read right, coconut is replacing pastes more and more.
Primarily this is replacement for a regular toothpaste and the oil can even heal cavities.
Many infections like oral cavities make heart disease, breathing problems, stroke, dementia. You need good dental care and avoid more problems of this kind.
A study of the Athlone institute studies various oils and their effects and claim the coconut is the best for bacteria and mouth issues.
Tooth decay is made from the streptococcus and also s.mutans that need sugar as food. They reduce the mouth pH and make acidity and demineralization.
As to the Dr. Damien Brady lead expert of Athlone Technology institute said that including enzyme changed coconut oil for dental care is amazing and can replace regular pastes. By increase in antibiotic resistance we have to pay attention to microbes and infections.
Commercial pastes have chemicals like lauryl sulfate, triclosan and fluoride, sweeteners like aspartame, all bad for health.
The lauryl sulfate affects every single of the taste buds and makes bitter taste, triclosan affects endocrine health so opt for nature.
