Raisins for an Extra Boost of Oral Hygiene
When a mid day teeth-brushing seems slightly over zealous, instead of reaching for a pack of “Dentine Ice”, munch on organic raisins for an extra boost of oral hygiene. At the American Society for Microbiology’s annual meeting, researchers explained the remedial effects of raisins on the teeth and gums. They discovered bacteria compounds in raisins that inhibit cavity-causing S. mutans from sticking to the teeth, as well as P. gingivalis, contributing to inflammation of the gums and periodontal disease. Chewing on a handful of raisins naturally strengthens both your teeth and gums, keeping you confident about your smile.....and the extra perk, you’ll get to munch on an all natural mid-day snack. Proactive upkeep of the mouth proves to prevent premature aging, cutting future costs and visits to the dentist. Daily consumption should not be used as a primary means to oral protection, but rather as an additional preventative measure to your regular brushing, flossing and dental screenings. Keep a bag of delicious raisins readily available to ensure a clean mouth and a satiated stomach….with raisins within reach you’ll be feeling great, looking good and tasting sweet!
