World’s Best Toxic Free Natural Home Made Toothpaste

Updated on November 13, 2014

3 Times a Day!

You brush your teeth with toothpaste every day, as recommended by doctors, three times after each main meal. At least you brush your white pearls once or twice a day.

So should not you worry what you are brushing with?

After all, clean white teeth are significant for your inner body health and to wear a super confident smile.

Why oral hygiene matters?

Oral hygiene affects your overall heath. A severe oral condition could cause your death even before you understand how deadly it can be. New research identifies that the health of your mouth mirrors the condition of your body as a whole.

What you can do?

Do regular dental visits and ensure your teeth, gum and mouth condition is good. A dentist can also detect poor nutrition and hygiene, abnormal growth and development and improper jaw alignment.

At home you can practice good oral practices by brush for two to three minutes, at least twice a day, eat healthy diet good for teeth and gum development (mostly vitamin A and C).

Avoid cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, which may contribute to gum disease and oral cancer.

What is the best toothpaste to use?

Again to think about what toothpaste you are brushing with every day matters a lot.

Just hop into a super market and you will see a big rack full of tooth paste with eye catching elegant packing and nice names.

Did you have a minute to check what the ingredients are?

I had! Because I am a mother!

There is a horrible list of things printed in the most unreadable font size under ingredients of any tooth paste. The list contains lot of chemicals, additives, detergents (shock!) and sweeteners. Such that it’s no wonder that accidentally ingesting high quantities of toothpaste is toxic.

After knowing all this, will you still swallow these artificial tooth pastes and use it for your everyday brushing?

Is there any natural tooth paste I can Use?

Scientists tested coconut oil against Streptococcus mutans – a sugar-loving bacterium that clings to teeth and produces acid causing them to rot.

Lead researcher Dr Damien Brady, of the Athlone Institute of Technology in Ireland, said: ‘Dental caries is a commonly overlooked health problem affecting 60 to 90 per cent of children and the majority of adults in industrialized countries. Source: Daily mail – UK

Several other key points published from their study:

  • Coconut oil could be a more attractive natural alternative to chemical additives in dental products.
  • Coconut oil worked against S. mutans at low concentrations.
  • With increasing antibiotic resistance, we need to focus on new ways to fight microbial infection.
  • Coconut oil also attacked Candida albicans, the yeast that causes oral thrush.

      I have never tried a natural toothpaste so it would be interesting to try one. It is indeed very simple to make and the best part is it is free from all those dangerous chemicals.

      Thanks.

      Read the shocking dangers of Fluoride on human body. Flouride is just one chemical used in toothpaste and a thing that is framed as a needed element for good teeth.

      @Daniel B: Thanks for your compliments and also your suggestion on Xylit. I will read on it. I was trying to make awareness about this natural toothpaste among my friends and people are still fond of using those chemical toothpaste. I think their commercial advertisments are more powerful.

      Hi, what a wonderful article.

      I have been using natural toothpaste for about a year now. I switched mainly because of fluoride, that is in most "common toothpastes".

      I then learned about the benefits of Xylit and changed my habits, because I didn't want to harm my body with unhealthy additives any longer :-)
