The food we consume is directly responsible for our oral health. Many people suffer from teeth and tooth decay issues in the case of poor diet.
An experienced dentist, Dr. Weston Price, says that the real reason that cause tooth decay is in our bodies. Believe or not, beans, seeds and nuts can cause issues, because they contain phytic acid.
Phytic acid is phosphorus form that is high in phosphorus and whose molecule is similar to snowflake. How we have talked about previously, this form is found in plants, commonly in grains and seeds, but it is not immediately bio-available in one-stomached animals and people. Also inhibits the immediate availability of phosphorus and attaches to other essential minerals, like calcium, magnesium iron and zinc, and destroys their use. It turns them into a phytate, when is in combination with these elements.
It can be said that also it obstructs the enzymes, such as pepsin, which is essential for dissolution of proteins in the stomach and amylase, which is needed for the dissolution of starch and its conversion to sugar. Trypsin, which is needed for the digestion of proteins also is blocked by Phytates, in the small intestine.
However, many scientists have investigated the reactions of people who eat a food rich in phytates and found that it has a significant anti-nutritional effect.
As a result, many people decide to use homemade natural toothpaste but they leave stains on sinks and that is their only drawback. Also some people try some healing remedies such as healing clays, combined with coconut oil, form a texture which is difficult to be used or cleaned.
Some people suggest the use of special tooth powder that it consists of spices and herbs, which are much cheaper and provides magnificent effects.
Today, we are recommending natural tooth powder, which as basic ingredient contains Bentonite clay, which is loaded with minerals and highly alkaline. This tooth powder is extremely efficient because attaches to toxins and heavy metals and eliminates them. Also it is high in silica, calcium, and magnesium and it is completely safe for use.
It’s very interesting that the molecular and electrical parts of this clay change, form a small electrical charge when it gets hydrates. Namely, it can absorb in its outer wall and pulls them in the center, all pollutants in the body, heavy metals, impurities and toxins.
However, this clay in combination with water, it swells and absorbs all harmful compounds. Also it can be used by children because it is soft and safe.
Many useful ingredients, which positively affect teeth, are present in to this tooth powder. For example:
-Calcium powder contains calcium and magnesium that helps in whiting of our teeth.
-Baking soda is loaded with minerals, also is highly alkaline and has ability to removes stains.
-Cinnamon has amazing taste, also has strong antibacterial properties, and prevents bacteria growth.
-Mint has a delicious taste and it has ability to calms the gums
