Many of us struggle to get those perly whites. It doesn’t always have to be that way. Did you know that by just eating on a regular basis fruits and certain leafy greens you can obtain even better results than over-the-counter whitening products? Yes, you most certainly can. Here’s what you should eat:
Super healthy an utterly delicious. Raw fruits such as pears promote saliva production, which helps to cleanse the mouth after a meal.
Fibrous and hard vegetables such as carrots stimulate the gums, and strong gums are essential to maintaining healthy teeth.
Eating an apple can help clean your child’s teeth until they learn how to brush properly, but be aware that apple juice is not a substitute for fresh apples and may cause tooth decay.
Leafy greens such as kale and spinach contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, beta carotene, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium, which all support oral health. I have many vegan/vegetarian friends and without them even knowing that leafy greens whiten your teeth, they noticed a significant difference after just 1 week! After I told them why their teeth got whiter they were so happy and excited as many of them weren’t blessed with beautiful Colgate teeth.
Fibrous fruits such as raspberries have a detergent effect and encourage saliva production in the mouth, which combats the acids and enzymes that attack teeth. Eat it during breakfast with your favorite yogurt or simply eat it alone, either way you’l get the best results when eaten on a regular basis.
Brussels sprouts are rich in vitamin C and also contain phosphorus, a mineral that aids in the formation of bones and teeth. Honestly I’m not a fan of brussels sprouts but they really do make a difference with the color of your teeth. I try to include as much as possible these bad boys and I can’t stop smilling!
