5 Reasons To Start Oil Pulling - How Many Do You Know?

Today I was just talking with a radio presenter in Sydney who was so excited because her friend realised her ulcers disappeared the day after she began oilpulling with Mintycoco.
When I was busy raising five little children and working double shifts running our theme parks in the UK, I was plagued with ulcers. If only I had known about oil pulling back then - we'd have created Mintycoco years ago!
According to WebMD, who explored the ancient oral health technique to see if it's all it's cracked up to be, oil pulling is a growing trend, but it's not new.

"This oral therapy is a type of Ayurvedic medicine [a traditional Indian system] that dates back 3,000 years," says Dentist Jessica T. Emery, DMD, owner of Sugar Fix Dental Loft in Chicago. "It involves swishing approximately 1 tablespoon of oil -- typically coconut, sesame, or sunflower oil -- in your mouth for about 20 minutes and then spitting it out."

Unlike some alleged remedies, oil pulling is not a practice based on pseudo-science.
Numerous studies show that oil pulling helps against gingivitis, plaque, and microorganisms that cause bad breath.
How?
"Most microorganisms inhabiting the mouth consist of a single cell," Emery says. "Cells are covered with a lipid, or fatty, membrane, which is the cell's skin. When these cells come into contact with oil, a fat, they naturally adhere to each other."

Here are WebMD's Oil-Pulling Tips:

"Use coconut oil. While you can get the same bacteria-fighting benefits with sesame or sunflower oil, coconut oil has the added benefit of lauric acid, which is well-known for its anti-microbial agents, Emery says, making it more effective. Also, a recent study found that coconut oil may help prevent tooth decay.

Get Started - with just 5 minutes a day. Twenty minutes of swishing is a long time, and while the longer you pull, the more bacteria you'll remove, 5 or 10 minutes will still offer some benefit. Also, if your jaw starts aching a few minutes in, slow down. "Don't work too hard," Emery says. "A gentle swishing, pushing, and sucking the oil through the teeth is all that's required."

Don't swallow. "If you find it hard not to, you likely have too much oil in your mouth," Emery says. "Spit it out and try again with a smaller amount." Also, don't spit it down the sink or the shower, as the oil could clog your pipes. Just spit out the used oil into the nearest bin or even into the loo.

Don't skip brushing and flossing. "Oil pulling should never replace routine dental visits and traditional home oral care," Emery says. "It doesn't reverse the effects of tooth decay, but it's a great supplemental therapy."

What people are saying about us...



"I certainly have noticed a change in my teeth, as an owner of teeth that are some natural and some veneer, my natural teeth always seem to discolour from the unattainable porcelain. This making them stand out and not look as natural. But since using this, my teeth are now back in sync with my veneer without the use or strong abrasive toothpastes."
Stewart, Amazon Customer

"I love this product, it has improved the whiteness of my teeth and really makes my mouth feel healthier. I could see a difference in a matter of days and would definitely recommend it to any one."
Talitha, Mintycoco Customer

"I bought this for my daughter to try as she suffers from teeth which overlap in places making it very difficult to clean them fully in between. She has used this product for just over a week now and the difference to the look of her teeth and her breath is fantastic."
Sherry, Amazon Customer
