Today we are going to be talking about garlic and ginger and how both of them can help stop your gum disease progression.
Eating Garlic and How It Helps Your Teeth
Garlic has strong anti-fungal antiviral, and antibacterial compounds. They are wonderful at helping fight off gum disease. Also, garlic has an excellent source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, phosphorus, and calcium, which all of them are so amazing with your teeth.
Since garlic has the antibacterial properties, it will reduce the bacteria on your teeth that can lead to your gums getting infected and creating infected pockets.
Scientists have found that garlic in liquid form can treat those infected pockets and can also treat the really bad bacteria build up. Garlic also can prevent scurvy. Scurvy is caused by not having good oral hygiene and really bad vitamin C deficiency, and since garlic has really high levels of vitamin C and its antiseptic compounds, it treated scurvy.
In addition to helping your teeth, eating garlic on a weekly basis can also help prevent high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease. Garlic has blood thinning compounds that have been proven to decrease the risks of cardiovascular problems. So, over all, garlic is good for you.
