Did you know that coconut is very powerful plant which can kill bacteria responsible for teeth damaging?
Irish scientists have tested coconut oil samples on steptococcus mutans. This is bacteria that glues to our teeth and causes dental erosion. Coconut oil became the best tool for killing bacteria.
Scientists consider that coconut oil should be the main ingredient in tooth pastes and mouth rinsing liquids. This way, our teeth will be more protected than before.
Dental caries (tooth decay) does not get the attention it should get. It occurs in 60 to 90 percent in children and it can occur in grownups as well. A guide research claim that if coconut oil, modified with chemical additives, is put into dental hygiene products it can be the most powerful tool against bacteria and other harmful substances that attack our teeth.
Coconut oil also kills the fungus Candida albicans which causes vaginal discharge, pain, stinging and burning sensation when urinating.

I use a LOT of coconut oil in my house. I prefer buying three or four containers of Carrington Farms Organic, Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 54 Ounce at a time because I use it every day! As soon as I wake up, I add a tablespoon to my cup of hot chocolate. By doing so, it helps me to lose weight as it is a medium chain saturated fat and will speed up your metabolism while helping you to lose weight.

In addition to all of these wonderful ways that coconut oil is beneficial you can also use it for:
- Oil Pulling: Coconut oil is the perfect oil for oil pulling! Swishing coconut oil in your mouth for at least 5-10 minutes will help to pull out toxins in your mouth and through your gums.
- Teeth Whitener: Whitening your teeth couldn’t be any easier than using either coconut oil or activated charcoal. Simply swish coconut oil around in your mouth, just like you do for oil pulling. You can do both at the same time. I’ll brush my teeth, then brush again with activated charcoal, clean out my mouth with colloidal silver (swish around for about 2 minutes, then spit it out) then do oil pulling, and will re-brush my teeth afterwards, when the coconut oil has loosened up any remaining stain(s).

- Suntan Oil: If you have a good base tan, you can use coconut oil in place of baby oil. Not only is it great for tanning, but it’s great for your skin as well. I have an old Neutrogena bottle that I put my coconut oil in but I only fill it up about 1/3 of the way because it’s usually solidified when I get to the beach and will not take as long to warm up into a liquid.
