Oral problems are very common in most people. Maintaining oral hygiene is very important, not just to prevent bad breath and yellow teeth, but also to prevent the formation of wounds and cavities.
There are instances when toothpaste is not enough. In that case, you should turn to nature.
According to a study conducted by the “Athlone Institute of Technology”, coconut oil has the ability to destroy harmful bacteria.
The study showed that this oil is useful in eliminating streptococci, Candida albicans, bacteria that cause oral problems.
Dr. Damien Brady, who led the research, said that the use of coconut oil a good alternative for the use of chemicals.
People often use it as a mouthwash. It’s very useful and has no side effects. Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and keep it in your mouth for about 10 – 20 minutes. That’s it. The coconut oil will destroy all bacteria located in the mouth.
Coconut oil contains lauric acid that’s important for the destruction of bacteria. You may not be able to immediately adjust the required amount of oil, enough for a good result. If you need to spit out the oil, spit it in the trash, not the sink.
Also, rinse your mouth thoroughly, so you do not swallow the oil with bacteria. It is important to note that this method is not a substitute for the usual teeth brushing.
