Coconut Oil Hailed As 'Miracle' Dental Breakthrough, Deadly Bacteria Killer

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Anthony Gucciardi
September 3, 2012

Looking for an alternative to toothpastes loaded with sulfates and other toxic ingredients such as fluoride? Mainstream science has now fully recognized the ‘miracle’ powers of coconut oil to not only combat tooth decay and drastically improve overall mouth health, but also to specifically crush a yeast known as candida albicans that can lead to deadly infections. This ‘news’ likely comes as nothing more than further confirmation for many, as natural health practicioners have been recommending coconut oil for years.

The research comes from the Athlone Institute of Technology, where Ireland-based scientists examined the effects of natural and digested coconut oil on common strains of bacteria within the mouth. What they found was that not only did the coconut oil effectively inhibit a majority of the bacteria strains single-handedly, but it was also particularly harmful to candida albicans. This is important when considering the fact that an excessive amount of the yeast known as candida albicans can be brought upon by a poor diet consisting of processed foods and sugar.

Candida infection, also known as candida overgrowth or the ‘candy disease’, can be associated with symptoms like chronic tiredness, recurring yeast infections, and digestive issues. It can also lead to a mouth infection known as thrush — a condition typically ‘treated’ using anti-fungal medications preceeded by an x-ray of your esophagus. Now, researchers are highlighting how coconut oil intake can be an alternative solution with far less side effects and concerns.

In their report, the scientists state that coconut oil could be ‘an effective alternative to chemical additives’ in most dental hygiene products. This refers to the many sulfate chemicals linked to numerous conditions, added fluoride, and many others.

It is important to ensure that you purchase the right kind of high quality coconut oil when purchasing it online or from your local supermarket. An important consideration is that the scientists conducting the study may have actually used an inferior low quality coconut oil, meaning that the results may have actually been even more positive if they were to use a 100% organic, extra virgin source. As a general rule of thumb, just as with vitamins and other supplements, avoid purchasing a generic brand of non-organic coconut oil from your local chain market.

Instead, look for a USDA certified organic or 100% organic label that is unrefined and cold-pressed. Personally, I would recommend Nutiva’s coconut oil on Vitacost for a high quality source that isn’t going to be highly expensive (I have no ties to either company). As a side note, coconut oil is also great to store as a preparedness food as it has a very long shelf life and is packed full of nutrients.This article first appeared at Natural Society

      Here is another alternative to the Tooth POISON-PASTE :mrgreen: you all buy from your “friendly – you can trust them -they would not poison you” major retailer-of-choice :evil: :twisted: !

      Pascalite Clay is all you need! :idea:
      Add water, make a “mud” dip your tooth brush in and brush your gums.
      Red Mann uses a “Sonic toothbrush” to “work the clay into the gum-line”.

      Take cotton balls, soak thoroughly in the clay mud, then “pack it” on the gum area infected. GO TO BED.
      Amazing BACTERIA-KILLING power!

      SUFFER NO MORE! :cool:

        I bet you’ve had a lot of takers on this bs scam lol. Nice website you got there. Very basic. Loaded with false testimony, no facts, no evidence, poor spelling, poor grammar, and bath salts for sale. I particularly enjoyed seeing the “organic sea salt” LOL.

          IGNORE THIS TROLL- “QUACK” DENTIST :evil: :twisted: :!: !

          It is “upset” that it cannot put mercury fillings in your mouth anymore, or give you “floride” treatments!
          It is upset that insurance will not pay for post-insert procedures, etc!

          It’s business sucks.

          :idea: Pascalite web site sells NO BATH SALTS!

          A PURE LIE BY THE “QUACK” DENTIST :evil: :twisted: !

          The web site is just information.
          You have to call to order the “miracle” clay!

          bye bye, dr. TROLL :evil: :twisted: dentist – the quack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Sorry. I didn’t realize you’re an adolescent. Your website does in fact sell “bath salts.” Not only did I witness this fact with my own eyes but anyone visiting the site will see it’s one of a pathetic two pages of products.

          Anyway, your comment is childish and nearly unintelligible. Maybe they should teach you better English in China.

      What is “mainstream science”? Are you referring to actual science and not this unscientific woo? Scientists suggest nothing of the sort. They would never fall off on some nonsense miracle product like you scam artists are always pushing. First it’s apple cider vinegar, then curry powder, now coconut. Ridiculous. You have absolutely NO reputable sources to cite. This is make-believe bull.

    • Wake up!

      It’s not a fairytale but you might be!

      Pay attention freaks, coconut anti viral anti bacteria. Wake up fools!

      Apple cider is also awesome, try living your life by not taking orders!

      Because you don’t know anything, if you did you would experiment by yourself. And not let the experts of killing try their poison.

    • Wake up!

      On you!!!!
