More on the study

Recently, a study of the Athlone Institute said this oil is the best for dental care. It is antibacterial and stops mouth bacteria with digestion enzymes. Also, it stops tooth decay against the Streptococcus and S mutants. These bacteria are from sugars inside the mouth when it gets too acidic and this makes tooth decay.

The main lead Dr. Damien Brady said the coconut oil works even in small amounts. Also it kills fungi and microbes and is healthier than a toothpaste and its items like sodium lauryl sulfate, fluoride, triclosan and sweeteners like aspartame. So, make your own paste and enjoy it.
