Only a few things can compare with a nice set of pearly white teeth in your mouth.Today, we want to give you a whitening tool that is natural, safe, efficient and guaranteed to make your teeth whiter than it found them!
This is the problem with commercial whiteners
People spend more than a billion dollars a year on over-the-counter tooth whitening products. But are they getting what they are dearly paying for?
Most people simply don’t realize that most whiteners come with complications such as:
1. teeth becoming translucent
3. gum irritation
4. gum receding
5. oral infections/disease
6. teeth becoming brittle
7. teeth going yellow again FASTER than before
Although most of the teeth whiteners work short term, the result often does not last, so people overuse them. But overuse can lead to serious issues that are NOT worth the satisfaction at all!
You really don’t need these chemical teeth whitening products
Mother Nature, as with most of our ailments, has some tricks up her sleeve to help us get that vibrant smile we long for. Believe or not, the answer to whiter teeth is in your own pantry. If you have been hanging around the health and wellness world for long, then surely you’ve heard of this extremely popular spice. It’s actually one of our superfoods good for use every single day!
It is a natural vibrant, golden spice that is often used to make mustard appear yellow.
Although turmeric’s powerful hue actually stains fabrics and surfaces, when it comes to your teeth – turmeric has an opposite effect.
In fact, it is a ‘Terminator Teeth Whitener.’ It may sound strange at first, yet it is true.

More benefits of using turmeric on your teeth
The remarkable thing about using natural remedies made from superfoods [such as the turmeric] is that they almost ALWAYS contain multiple benefits.
Numerous studies have been done to show the benefits of turmeric in dentistry, and for oral hygiene as well.
Oral infections and toothaches
Turmeric is well-known for its anti-viral and antibacterial properties that can help keep the bacteria at bay and it may soothe or cure oral infections.
Gum irritation and gum reddening
When you apply natural products like this one, you can expect less irritation and a healthier mouth than when you use chemical-based products. Because of turmeric’s antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral powers, it can soothe inflammation and irritation in the mouth.
Some people are unaware of their allergy to chemicals in commercial toothpastes and other oral hygiene products. Using more natural-based substances, like turmeric, can benefit oral health significantly by lessening the irritation.
Decalcify your pineal gland
The pineal gland has been called one of the most important parts of your nervous system. It is right in the center of your brain and is responsible for regulating various hormones and is also known as the center for ‘spiritual awakening.’ But, many chemical substances in our modern day living have been shown to damage this important gland.
Note well: Turmeric’s neuroprotective benefits and anti-inflammatory properties can improve and preserve the health of the pineal gland when used regularly.
Protect your brain from fluoride damage
Turmeric not only helps whiten your teeth, but it may also help combat the negative effects of fluoride in your tap water. Unfortunately, fluoride is present EVERYWHERE! You can find it in:
• drinking water
• non-stick pans
• …and more
Multiple studies have indicated that fluoride is TOXIC for the human brain and body. But, curcumin -the active substance in turmeric – contains remarkable brain-saving properties!
A corpus of over 200 peer-reviewed, published studies have shown that curcumin is a neuroprotective agent. With all the chemical and toxin exposure we are facing daily, the turmeric could very well become one of the most important herbs of our time!
5 More things you probably don’t know about turmeric
Turmeric is very, very old!
Even though turmeric only began trending in the U.S. about 30 years ago, it has been used in food and medicine around the world for millennia! Historians believe it was first used in India and then was brought to Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. Researchers have found turmeric on the teeth of old skeletons found near the Indus River and also on various cooking supplies thought to origin from the same time period! It looks like we are not the only ones using turmeric for whiter teeth!
Did you know that turmeric was referred to as GOLD in biblical times?
That’s right! Many historians believe that the GOLD the wise men brought to baby Jesus was actually turmeric! In many ancient scripts people said ‘gold’ when they were actually talking about turmeric.
Turmeric has POSITIVE side effects!
We agree that many anti-inflammatory pharmaceuticals (that is drugs) are effective, but they also take a big toll on our overall health. For sure you have experienced the negative side effects of drugs at one point of your life and they are not fun at all! Especially, when they are intended to make you feel BETTER.
On the other hand, the turmeric is packed full of ‘collateral’ beneficial effects for almost every organ of our body. If taken in EXTREMELY high doses, it may cause diarrhea and slight nausea. In normal everyday use, it is safe and free of side effects. However, you should consult your trusted naturopath for guidance.
Turmeric is so EASY to include in your diet
You don’t have to work hard to get this tasty spice into your daily diet. You can take it in capsule form, use the powder in smoothies, juice the root itself, add it to all sorts of dishes, use it to brush your teeth, etc.
