He Mixes This Paste With A Common Household Product That Will Reverse Gum Disease And Whiten Teeth

Good oral health is necessary for overall bodily health. The mouth is essentially the gateway to the rest of our body and it’s tied in with many other conditions, risks, and diseases. For example, gum disease and heart disease are related and according to statistics cited by WebMD “up to 91% of patients with heart disease have periodontitis, compared to 66% of people with no heart disease.”

This mouth-body connection makes regular brushing and flossing of teeth an important part of the preventative care routine you do at home to stay as healthy as possible. Even so, there are alternative things beyond the basics that you can do, and making your own all-natural whitening toothpaste is one of them.

The recipe that follows from FitLifeTV is a great way to help improve both your smile and oral health, and thus your overall health. The accompanying video shows how to make the simple, all natural, homemade toothpaste that’s both effective at cleaning and whitening teeth.

It contains ingredients that are safe and gentle on enamel, and therefore it will not damage your teeth. Many DIY toothpastes use lemon and even salt, which are highly acidic and strip teeth of their protective enamel, in the end these types do more harm than good.

For this toothpaste all you need is coconut oil, turmeric, and food grade peppermint oil flavoring, plus a container to put it all in. You want to use a good extra-virgin type of coconut oil and powdered turmeric, in the video turmeric capsules were used but any powdered variety will do. Start off by mixing together 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with two capsules of turmeric and a few drops of peppermint oil.

Go easy at first because you can always add in more peppermint later to adjust the flavor to your desired taste. Mix it all together very well and then pick up a little bit with your toothbrush and start brushing! After at least two minutes you can spit and rinse, but the longer you brush the whiter, cleaner your teeth will turn out.

With regular use this toothpaste will whiten teeth and give you a healthy, clean mouth. Both turmeric and coconut oil have proven antimicrobial effects and anti-inflammatory properties. In recent times they have increasingly been added to people’s health and beauty routines and it’s easy to see why as there are many reported benefits connected to them.

Turmeric helps to whiten teeth naturally, safely, effectively, and cheaply, but more importantly, it helps with a number of other oral issues like tooth sensitivity. It won’t irritate swollen gums further like many commercial grade toothpastes tend to do. Instead, turmeric reduces overall irritation and sensitivity and helps with tooth aches, gum reddening, oral infections, and more. It also helps to strengthen teeth and prevent them from becoming brittle.

While the health benefits of turmeric have always been celebrated in India, they’re just beginning to become widely known in America. The simple spice can be found in just about any grocery store or market and you may even have a bottle or jar on hand in your kitchen cabinet.

The colorful, orange-yellow spice comes in powder form and most of the world’s supply is grown in India where the Turmeric plant’s roots are gathered, boiled, dried in super hot ovens, and ground down into a fine powder that’s very strong and easily stains whatever it comes into contact with.

That’s why it’s often used as a dye agent, even though it’s most widespread and common use is as a spice for flavoring foods. Now its natural health and beauty benefits are being revealed and this one is among the best!

This whitening toothpaste is all-natural and won’t cost you more than a few dollars to make. For some of us out there this beauty tip could change our appearance, and lives, for the better. So rifle through your spice rack and grab the turmeric, mix it up and smear some on your toothbrush, and be amazed at how such an unlikely solution actually works!
