4 Superfoods + Practices for Better Oral Health

#1 Tongue Scraping

In the Charaka Samhita, an early Ayurvedic text, it says that by cleaning the tongue, “(this) removes foul smell, tastelessness … and by taking out dirt coated on the tongue, teeth and mouth brings relish immediately.”

Scraping the tongue daily removes any build-up on the tongue, which, if left untreated, can lead to bad breath and may house a significant number of bacteria.

#2 Activated Charcoal Toothpaste

We particulary enjoy My Magic Mud’s Activated Charcoal Toothpaste because it is formulated with essential oils, coconut oil, bentonite clay, and combined with the oral defense power of xylitol. These ingredients are combined to re-mineralize and clean the plaque off of your teeth, without any of the harsh abrasives used in mainstream toothpaste.

#3 Chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is an effective remedy to combat bad breath. Poor digestive health can be a major cause of bad breath. Chlorophyll performs a dual action by eliminating the stink from mouth and throat and also stimulates digestive health by cleansing the colon and the bloodstream.

#4 Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an age-old remedy rooted in Ayurvedic medicine that uses natural substances to clean and detoxify teeth and gums. It has the added effect of whitening teeth naturally and evidence even shows that it may be beneficial for gum health and that certain oils may help fight harmful bacteria in the mouth
