We always get a little jealous when we see all those people in the magazines and their super white teeth. Yes, photoshop has something to do with it, but also there are legit ways you can whiten your teeth. The expensive option would be going to the dentist, or use one of those whitening kits that you can find in the pharmacies and groceries. People who have used some of those products say that there were some effects, but also there are some painful side effects that are caused by the chemicals in those products.
But, you do not have to waste your money and experience pain with the option that we will present you here. It is an easy mixture of coconut oil and baking soda that is cheap and safe for use.
We choose the coconut oil as one of the ingredients due to its efficiency and its healing agents that can help you prevent cancer, improve your digestion, improve Alzheimer’s disease, also improve the levels of the sugar in the blood, it regulates the hormones and it also helps with burning fat. You can find hundreds of studies that have proved that coconut oil can help with preventing and fighting bacteria such as the one that is responsible for tooth decay. The coconut oil can stop all that bacteria from growing and destroying your teeth.
The toothpaste that we use every day has triclosan, which can be responsible for preterm babies, undescended testicles in boys, low birth weight babies, early puberty in girls as well as prostate, testicular, breast and ovarian cancer. This triclosan can also cause some bone malformation that is linked to hormonal effects. The toothpaste also contains fluoride that can be very toxic and even poisonous. The fluoride from the toothpaste has been a reason for thousands of people ending up in the emergency room due to poisoning.
It is wrong to think that the baking soda has an abrasive effect and compared to all the other things we use on our teeth, this one is the least abrasive of them all. The baking soda can fight the bacteria that are responsible for cavity and it can boost the good bacteria that fight the bad one. It can also help with removing the stains from the teeth and it can whiten them.
Simply, wash your teeth with some coconut oil for about 2 minutes if you want to whiten them up. Or, you can mix these two ingredients to create super powerful but natural paste that can whiten your teeth.
You will have to mix together 8 ts of baking soda with 8 ts of coconut oil (extra virgin and cold pressed). Then, put some of this mixture on your toothbrush and gently brush your teeth. Finally, just rinse with some water. This mixture can be used instead of toothpaste and you can also add some peppermint oil for some freshness.
