We look at the reasons why oil pulling works and how it can affect both the health of your mouth and the rest of your body!
Why Coconut Oil Pulling Is So Important
Did you know that tooth decay, known professionally as dental caries, is the most prevalent health problem among Australians and throughout the industrialised world?
Gum disease also affects the majority of adults. Gingivitis is early gum disease, affecting the surface layers of the gum. Signs are bleeding, redness and swelling.
Most people are advised that the best solution is to continue brushing and that’s true but there’s a big problem: bacteria and/or fungus in the mouth resulting from tooth decay and gum disease then invade the rest of the body.
It’s been proven that brushing and flossing can allow these bad germs to penetrate the body en masse, causing havoc.
We’re not talking about a few bacteria either - the average person has 8 BILLION bacteria in her mouth!
So oil pulling especially first thing in the morning “captures” those bacteria which become trapped in the antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal coconut oil and peppermint combination. You then simply spit out the results, into your bathroom waste paper bin for example, then when you brush and floss, your mouth bacteria level is far more balanced by all the good guys who travel in your saliva.
Sorry if that sounds gross but that’s how it works.
Oil pulling loosens plaque too which makes your teeth whiter.
The most delicious and convenient way to oil pull is with Mintycoco’s pure organic formula.
Take the Mintycoco 14 Day Challenge and find out for yourself how good it feels to have a really clean mouth and white teeth.
Our organic virgin cold pressed coconut oil comes from organic farmers in Sri Lanka. Every sachet sold supports girls and boys who otherwise would exist in extreme poverty: we help The Rainbow Centre in Sri Lanka to provide loving care, education, medical and dental health, breaking the cycle of despair. So it’s not just you who is smiling bright!
Love to all you Mintycoconuts,
PS did I mention that Mintycoco's delicious? Taste it for yourself :)
