Whats inside your toothpaste?

Salt?? Neem?? Charcoal?? Whatever you ad says….

“Good teeth, birth to death” by  Dr. Judd explains that when we brush our teeth with conventional tooth paste that the glycerin in the toothpaste (all have it, even organic ones) coats are teeth. This is what the glycerin is there to do, protect the teeth from stains. However, if you have this coat of ‘gunk’ (if you will), on your teeth then your enamel will not regrow. So then your teeth are just getting beat up, then covered with a thin barrier wall. Sure this barrier wall is great, but it is not natural and has adverse side effects. If you have a layer of glycerin on your teeth they can not repair themselves, thus you get sensitive teeth or cavities or rot. And the fluoride in your toothpaste it not helping. Before fluoride was used for the teeth it was used as rat poison. yeah.

What would be the alternatives?

Sea Salt 

dissolve the salt in water first and then dip your brush in the saltwater before brushing.

Baking Soda

This has got to be one of the most popular natural toothpaste alternatives.

Dry Brushing

According to some, there’s no need to use anything at all: dry brushing does the job.

Brush with Pure Water

If dry brushing doesn’t quite cut it for you, try brushing with pure water.

This also works surprisingly well for clearing debris from the teeth, but you still don’t get that minty mouth feel.

Coconut Oil

Another great natural toothpaste alternative.Why?

Its antifungal and antibacterial properties come in handy for mouth cleaning.
