Organic Chocolate in your Dental Diet and Dental Products is REALLY GOOD for your teeth and whole body health!
A dentist recommending chocolate? Yes, that’s right, you read correctly. Recent studies emerging from Japan, England, and the U.S. support the fact that raw chocolate is effective at fighting cavities, plaque, and tooth decay in the mouth.
Dark chocolate (not sugary milk chocolate) is NOT a cavity-causing treat. It may actually help prevent cavities!
And here’s where the gauntlet gets thrown down. Compounds in chocolate may be more effective at fighting decay than fluoride. Researchers are predicted that one day, the compound found in chocolate called Theobromine will be used in mouthwashes and toothpaste.
THAT DAY IS HERE NOW! We made first Oral Care products in the world. Our non-toothpaste Serums contain organic raw Cocoa Butter (with Theobromine).
Tooth decay occurs when bacteria in the mouth ferment sugar into acids, which eat away at the tooth’s surface and cause cavities. Compounds in the cocoa bean have an anti-bacterial effect and also fight against plaque.
This research has even revealed that the cocoa extract is more effective than fluoride in fighting cavities. To many, this is shocking news, but for me that’s not saying much. I’m not a fan of ingesting fluoride, and I think it has long been over-hyped (more on that in future posts).
Theobromine, a white crystalline powder whose chemical makeup is similar to caffeine, helps harden tooth enamel, making users less susceptible to tooth decay.
Now, before you reach for that Mars bar, listen to this:
For the best therapeutic effect (yes, I’m still talking about chocolate), it’s best to chew on cacao nibs, which are very bitter but extremely healthy.
The second best choice, is dark chocolate without sugar – organic if possible. Raw chocolate is even a better choice, as it it less processed, and more of the antioxidants are left intact.
Do all of this for your teeth, but enjoy the other benefits of mood elevation and better blood flow as well!
With the recent findings, it’s now more true than ever, that chocolate is a superfood. Chocolate has over 300 chemical compounds in it, making it one of the most complex foods we know of, and I predict that many new compounds in chocolate beneficial to us will surface over time and cement its nutritional five star rating.
