Tooth Powder With Xylitol – Do It Yourself

Tooth Powder With Xylitol – Do It Yourself

Most commercial toothpaste brands contain Fluoride, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Titanium Dioxide and other dangerous or controversial ingredients.

Fluoride for example is linked to brain damage, lower IQ in children, thyroid suppression, dementia and other health issues.  Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is linked to endocrine disruption and even cancer and Titanium Dioxide is linked to autoimmune disorders, asthma, and Crohn’s disease.

Here is the breakdown of the suggested ingredients that you can use in making your own tooth powder.

Xylitol (low glycemic, sugar like sweetener) is shown to prevent caries.  Xylitol inhibits and eventually destroys “caries bacteria”. Not all xylitol products are equal, so you will need to buy a high-quality xylitol obtained from a birch tree from Finland and pay close attention that it doesn’t contain GMO ingredients. The brands like Xylobrit  or Zylosweet (EU) and Smart Sweet (US) are good-quality choices.

CLAY is a gentle cleanser with detoxifing properties and rich in minerals which support tooth remineralization.

SODIUM BICARBONATE (baking soda) is a mild abrasive tooth polish that helps remove stains and whitens the theets.

SEA SALT

Unrefined sea salt is antibacterial and helps with tooth re-mineralization.

GROUND CLOVE, CINNAMON, MINT

Besides giving the toothpaste a great flavor, clove powder, ground cinnamon, and ground mint have specific health properties that support tooth and gum health.

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL

Activated charcoal has been used in ancient times and even today it is used as the poison remedy in many emergency rooms. Charcoal works by attracting (absorbing) toxins and provides a quick relief from poisoning. Fortunately the charcoal doesn’t attract the substances that we need like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc and others. Another great thing about it is that charcoal happens to attract tannins (the compounds found in coffee, tea, blueberries, wine etc.) responsible for staining our teeth.

The only downside is that it colors temporarily your tooth (and tooth powder) in dark black/brown, but goes off as soon as you rinse it.
