There is nothing more attractive than a nice and warm smile! Every individual is beautiful and should smile a lot as the smile has the power to bring so much joy! But if you are not satisfied with the color of your teeth then read the text and find out how to whiten your teeth naturally.
The Problem With Commercial Whiteners
It is shown that Americans spend over 1 billion dollars a year on commercial tooth whitening products but the question is: Do they really help?
Most people are not aware that tooth whiteners have some side effects as:
- oral infections/disease
- teeth becoming translucent
- teeth becoming brittle
- gum irritation
- gum receding
- teeth going yellow again FASTER than before
This is true and although teeth whiteners are effective the results don’t last and if you exaggerate, they can seriously damage your teeth.
THE GOOD NEWS IS… YOU CAN STOP USING TEETH WHITENING PRODUCTS!
The Mother Nature is hiding the right solution which can help you in getting the glowing smile you have always wanted.
The answer is hidden in your store room. And you have probably heard about this amazing spice.
Turmeric is natural, golden spice which is added in mustard to appear yellow.
Although it is quite strange that this yellow spice will make your teeth white you must try it. Actually turmeric’s strong color can leave stains on fabric and surface, but when it comes to your teeth it will make them white as a snow.
Strange but true!

Other Benefits of Using Turmeric On Your Teeth
Natural remedies always have numerous beneficial properties. There are many studies on how turmeric is beneficial for oral hygiene and dental health.
Toothaches and Oral infections
Turmeric has antibacterial and anti-viral properties which can soothe/defeat oral infections.
Gum Irritation and Gum Reddening
If you choose to use natural products like turmeric, you can protect your mouth from irritations which is not the case if you use chemical-based products. Turmeric can protect you from inflammations and irritation in the mouth due to its antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
Some people are not even aware that they are allergic to chemicals found in commercial toothpaste and other dental products. By using natural substances like turmeric they can prevent reddening and irritation.
Decalcify Your Pineal Gland
This gland is one of the most important parts of human’s nervous system. It is located in the central part of the brain and it is responsible for regulating various hormones. It is also known as the center for “spiritual awakening”.
Many chemicals and substances that we use every day are proven to damage the pineal gland.
As the turmeric contains neuroprotective and anti- inflammatory properties, it can really help in improving and preserving the pineal gland’s health but only if you use it regularly.
Protect Your Brain from Fluoride Damage
Beside the fact that turmeric helps in teeth whitening, it is also proven to act against the negative effects of fluoride.
Fluoride, unfortunately, is found EVERYWHERE.
- drinking water
- non-stick pans
- …and more
Many studies have shown that fluoride is toxic and especially dangerous for the human brain and body.
Turmeric contains amazing substance –curcumin which has brain-saving properties!
More than 200 published studies have shown that curcumin acts as a neuroprotective agent.
To conclude, we are exposed to numerous toxins and chemicals every day and turmeric is a great solution in the fight against them.
