Fluoride is an extremely controversial ingredient that has been causing all sorts of trouble in the realm of mouth health for ages. Though it helps to strengthen and protect tooth enamel, especially in children, it can also be very toxic if too much is swallowed.
Fluoride is a toxic industrial waste product that is a poison to your body even in trace amounts, yet it is added to the majority of US water supplies using the rationale that it helps prevent dental cavities.
The archaic practice continues even though it is now widely recognized that fluoride’s only justifiable benefit comes from topical contact with teeth – and even that is debatable.
Chocolate Toothpaste Works Better Than Fluoride
A recent study presented at the American Dental Association (ADA) 2013 Annual Session pitted fluoride toothpaste against a new toothpaste that contains the naturally-occurring cacao extract theobromine.
The results showed that patients who brushed their teeth with the cacao-extract toothpaste twice a day for one week had “100 percent dental occlusion” with their tooth dentin becoming re-mineralized or repaired.
The comparison to toothpastes containing fluoride – one as much as 5,000 ppm [parts per million] – validates what our research has shown all along: that Rennou [the cocoa extract] … is more effective and safer than fluoride, which can be toxic if ingested.
Homemade Chocolate Toothpaste Recipe
-2 tablespoons baking soda
-4 tablespoons coconut oil
-6 drops clove essential oil
-2 teaspoons organic cacoa powder
Combine all ingredients and mix until you have the consistency you want. Scoop the paste onto brush. Store the paste in a container with a lid as baking soda can absorb smells. You can also make it squeezable by putting it into a empty toothpaste tube.
