Natural Ways To Whiten Your Teeth

If you want to have a good life, you need to smile more! The more you smile, the more people around you smile. It's addictive. As Buddy in the movie Elf said "Smilings my favorite!".

Oral health is a big indicator of overall health. If you don't have a healthy mouth, it is very likely you will have or could have more problems down the line. But, most people want a good looking smile and end up sacrificing their overall health and not just the health of their mouth in the process. Many of the teeth whitening systems or toothpastes available are unhealthy and full of chemicals that shouldn't be in our bodies.

There are many natural alternatives you can try, that are actually health helpers too. First, I'll tell you about one that you probably already have the ingredients at home, and then I'll tell you about a store-bought option, like one you could buy at Blue Jug - Alkaline Water & Health Market.

Simple! Turmeric powder & coconut oil! Seriously, it's that simple and it works. First you get coconut oil on the bristles of your toothbrush and then dip it in turmeric powder or sprinkle the powder on top. Brush like you would normally do, although try not to get it on your lips or face unless you just want to have a fashionable jaundice look, ha!

Now for a Blue Jug Market or another store-bought option. You can look for products such as My Magic Mud that use Activated Charcoal, Bentonite Clay and Coconut Oil. Natural options that do not have Fluoride, Foaming Agents, or other toxic ingredients are best. Just a warning if you try the My Magic Mud's ugly, but it works! I recommend brushing your teeth while in the shower, because you will get black charcoal everywhere! Oh, and just another FYI - you can really give your kids or spouse a scare when brushing! :)

If you are really bored, here's a video (on Facebook & Periscope) I did on the same subject. Enjoy!  Watch here.
