When we set out to create Mintycoco we wanted to include the most benefits in any oil pulling formula that the world had ever seen.
Oil pulling is a mission for us. We've set out to make it mainstream and delicious while still purely natural. And we’ve done it!
Of course we chose pure virgin coconut oil extracted using our unique Vitalock coconut oil extraction method. We've spent a long time finding exactly the right organic, raw, cold-pressed, alkaline, extra virgin, coconut oil from handpicked coconuts. The best we found is direct from the fields of organic farmers in Sri Lanka
Next we looked at how to flavour it and see if we could we add something special.
It had to be totally delicious and in the right formulation so you get maximum benefit.
There's so much evidence about coconut oil and about peppermint as being hugely beneficial to your health.
Peppermint is one of the world's oldest medicinal herbs whose essential oil is highly valued by herbalists and natural healers.
Peppermint has antispasmodic and pain-killing properties plus proven antimicrobial effects.
Peppermint was used in ancient Greece and Egypt as a medicine and in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic healing systems to treat colds, cramps, dyspepsia, nausea, sore throats and toothaches.
Peppermint is still used today to treat digestive complaints, headaches, menstrual cramps and coughs and topically to relieve pain.
Peppermint has antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects.
So your Mintycoco doesn’t just taste great - together with the coconut oil it’s doing you serious good too.
White teeth and healthy gums are a sure sign of good health - making you look and feel younger.
No wonder health experts and celebrities endorse oil pulling as the #1 daily health habit.

With every sachet sold you "Mintycoconuts" support The Rainbow Centre in Sri Lanka:
We help children escape from extreme poverty, providing a safe bed to sleep in, nourishing food and education to break free from a cycle of suffering.
Many of the girls live in flooded slum areas, sometimes accessed only by broken plank bridges, without electricity and dependant on distant well water. Living in such desparate poverty with parents who received only minimal education and struggle to support their families, the Rainbow Centre is their only escape to create a better life.
We donate money from every sachet of Mintycoco sold, keeping your smile healthy and making less fortunate kids smile in the process.
Go on, take your mouth on holiday every morning

If you have few or no natural teeth at the age of 70, you could be aging at an accelerated rate. "It is important to take poor dental health seriously in that these people may be at greater risk of general physical and/or cognitive decline," Dr. Poul Holm-Pedersen of the Copenhagen Gerontological Oral Health Research Center told Reuters Health.
The researchers assessed the number of teeth remaining intact among 573 nondisabled 70-year-old men and women living in Copenhagen in 1984.
When the study began, fewer than 20 percent had 20 or more teeth, and more than 40 percent had no teeth. The onset of disability was determined among study participants through follow-up assessments conducted five-, 10-, 15- and 20-years later, while the subjects' mortality was assessed over the subsequent 21 years.
Compared with elders maintaining 20 or more natural teeth, those with no or few teeth at age 70 were significantly more likely to report mobility problems such as difficulty walking or climbing stairs within the next five or 10 years, said a Reuters Health report. Having no teeth at age 70 was also linked with greater mortality over the study period.
The associations remained strong even when investigators accounted for other factors potentially associated with disability and death — such as health-related problems and education. The finding that tooth loss appears related to the onset of disability and mortality in old age raises important clinical issues for disease prevention and geriatric care, the researchers say.
