For over a millennia, coconut oil has been a dietary and beauty staple. A powerful destroyer of all kinds of microbes(from viruses to bacteria to protozoa, many of which can be harmful), coconut oil provides your body with high-quality fat that is critical for optimal health.
The ‘miracle’ powers of coconut oil have finally been recognized. Not only does coconut oil combat tooth decay and drastically improve overall mouth health, but also it specifically crushes a yeast known as candida albicans that can lead to deadly infections.This ‘news’ likely comes as nothing more than further confirmation for many, as natural health practitioners have been recommending coconut oil for years.
Naturally containing antibacterial/antimicrobial properties due to its high lauric acid content, coconut oil can be an incredible toothpaste. Mix it with baking soda and replace your regular toothpaste. The baking soda will gently cleanse while the coconut oil’s antibacterial action may help keep harmful bacteria in check.
