So what exactly is oil pulling?
Oil pulling is an ancient Indian practice that involves swishing oil around in the mouth for about 20 minutes on the premise that this will pull toxins out of the body.
What are the benefits?
Oil pulling has excellent benefits for oral health. It can help strengthen the teeth, gums, and jaw, whiten teeth, prevent bad breath, prevent dryness of the mouth, lips, and throat, prevent mouth diseases like cavities and gingivitis and treat soreness of the jaw. It’s also been thought that oil pulling has many benefits that extend way beyond oral health. Examples include reduced headaches, hangover relief, kidney function support, general pain relief, reduced insomnia, and general detoxification of the body.
It’s very simple to do. I try to oil pull a few times a week. All you need is refined coconut oil and a tablespoon. Fill your tablespoon up with oil and swish it around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. Follow with brushing your teeth. It’s crazy what one oil pull will do for your teeth! Try it out today!
