Having trouble keeping your gums healthy, teeth white and breath fresh? Then you should find out more about coconut oil pulling for oral health. The infographic below by Authority Diet explains how to do coconut oil pulling step-by-step and its benefits.
Oil pulling has been practiced for centuries. Apart from coconut oil, olive and sesame oil can also be used. However, they are not as effective as using coconut oil. Due to coconut oil’s antibacterial properties, studies have shown its effectiveness in combating bad bacteria that can cause plaque and tooth decay.
Coconut oil pulling does take more time than normal mouthwash, but it is natural and you can avoid the artificial ingredients from commercially bought formulations.
