In the times in which we live, oral problems are very common among the population worldwide. Therefore, besides maintaining proper oral hygiene in order to prevent bad breath and yellow teeth, it is essential to keep your mouth as clean as possible, in order to prevent the occurrence of pests, decay or calculation.
However, there are cases where the toothpaste and mouthwash is not enough. When this happens, you can always turn; to natural medicines. Namely, according to a study in 2012 by Athlone Institute of Technology, coconut oil has the power to suppress harmful bacteria. The study also showed that coconut oil is very useful in removing Streptococcus, Candida, which is known to cause oral health problems.
Dr. Damien Brady, who led the researchers, said the inclusion of coconut oil modified by the enzyme is a good alternative to chemical additives. Although the study has not yet reached the extreme level, it would be better, coconut oil to include resources that people use regularly, instead of mouthwash.
The practice of using coconut oil for oral health is called “shoot with coconut oil” This means that you put a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth and hold it there for 10 to 20 minutes with the to “throw” bacteria that are present in the oral cavity. According to the researchers, this process is initiated by the ancient Ayurveda. However, the following explanation is newer than:
In the “skin” of the mouth – live bacterial cells of the fat composition, and as such, they are attracted to the fat in the oil. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which is excellent in the destruction of harmful bacteria.
Test method “pull” with coconut oil, it being possible initially hit the correct amount of oil in the mouth, but try, until you adjust the amount in the mouth, which can have a real effect.
What you should do, because time is running out, it is spitting the oil in the trash, not the sink. Also, rinse your mouth well after the procedure to prevent any residual bacteria that can not swallow. It is important to note that this method does not replace brushing with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
