Why You Should Start Using Coconut Oil as a Toothpaste

Coconut oil has revealed another of its many health benefits – it can kill bacteria associated with tooth decay. Coconut oil could prove to be a viable and safe alternative to commercially used chemical products and all you need to do it to keep it in your mouth so that it would interact with the enzymes found in your saliva.


Coconut Oil May Be Better Than Commercial Toothpastes According to a Study
Researchers from Ireland’s Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT) tested coconut oil’s action against Streptococcus bacteria, which inhabit your mouth. They showed that when the oil was treated with enzymes, in a process similar to digestion, it inhibited the growth of bacteria, including Streptococcus mutans that produces acids which can make your teeth rot.

The research team tested vegetable oil, olive oil and coconut oil, both in their natural state and when treated with enzymes.

Only coconut oil treated with enzymes showed the antimicrobial activity, and already small quantities were abl…

Gout is a complex form of arthritis and is characterized by sudden and severe attacks of pain, redness, tenderness and swelling in the joints, often the joint at the base of the big toe (approximately 50% of cases).

10 Coconut Milk Benefits For Hair, Skin And Health

Coconuts are grown in abundance in southern Asia, Malaysia, and Polynesia. While they’re often confused for being a nut, a coconut is actually a one-seeded drupe, a fruit that consists of an outer skin and a pulpy, succulent middle layer, with a hard, woody inner shell that encloses a single seed. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as Kalpavriksha, which means the “‘tree which gives all that is necessary for living,” as nearly all parts of it can be used, the water, milk, flesh, sugar, and oil. Even the husks and leaves are used as materials in furnishings and decoration.


Creamed coconut and coconut milk are made in a surprisingly similar way to their dairy counterparts. The flesh is grated and soaked in hot water, and the coconut cream rises to the top and can be skimmed off. The liquid that remains is then squeezed through a cheesecloth to extract a white liquid that is the coconut milk. When you crack open a fresh coconut, the milky-white substance that seeps out is natural coc…
