Better Than Toothpaste, Use Coconut Oil to Kill the Bacteria Responsible for Tooth Decay!
Coconut oil modified with enzymes in products for dental hygiene would be an attractive alternative to chemical additives, particularly because it operates at relatively low concentrations.
Irish scientists have tested the effect of coconut oil on Streptococcus mutans – the bacteria that stick to the teeth and produces acid that causes tooth decay.
When the oil is mixed with digestive enzymes, it is becoming a powerful tool for killing bacteria.
Manufacturers could use coconut in toothpaste and in mouthwash; then the teeth will be much safer than before.
Lead researcher Dr. Brady, from the Institute of Technology in Ireland, said that dental caries is a health problem and you should pay more attention to it.
It affects 60 to 90 percent of children and adults in most developed countries.
Coconut oil can kill the fungus Candida albicans which is coursing painful intercourse and stinging during urination.
