How Seaweed Helps to Stop Tooth Decay
Posted on 9/17/2016 by Sundberg Office
Seaweed is a very underrated food. It does not get nearly as much attention as it should, because it is incredibly good for nearly everyone on the planet, and it can provide a wide range of benefits.
For those who are seeking ways of being able to stop tooth decay, you should be adding seaweed into your daily diet. It can be added to what you eat and drink, or you can even brush with seaweed powder to get the benefits going through your body.
Why Seaweed is Good for Your Teeth
Seaweed is full of microbes that are really good at cleaning the things around it. Think of what seaweed does to the hull of a boat. As boats pass through seaweed, they come out cleaner.
If you eat seaweed, your teeth also get cleaner, but it is not specifically due to the microbes that come into your mouth by eating the seaweed, it happens because those microbes, as they are cleaning off your teeth, produce specific enzymes that allow your teeth to get clean, heal, and stay strong longer. The more seaweed you eat, the more likely you are to keep your teeth your whole life with fewer cavities than those who do not add it into their diets.
One thing to make sure you know. When seaweed is heated, the parts of the seaweed you need to help stop tooth decay in its tracks dies. You need to make sure that any seaweed product you eat is either raw or comes from a cold-press process in order to get the most benefit out of what you are doing.
