If you’re using commercial toothpaste—you may want to think twice. Today, I will explain the benefits of healthy saliva and how toothpaste affects your health.

Here are the benefits of healthy spit:
• It contains electrolytes
• It contains friendly bacteria
• It contains an enzyme that helps you break down starches
• It contains a protein that helps coat vitamin B12 to support absorption
• It contains sodium bicarbonate to help neutralize acids and maintain the correct pH
• It contains white blood cells and anti-pathogenic factors
• It makes hydrogen peroxide to combat tartar or plaque

It’s crucial not to disturb the chemistry of your saliva. If it’s altered too much, it can lead to:
• Inflammation (gingivitis or periodontitis)
• Cavities
• Overgrowth of yeast or candida on the tongue
• Bad breath (chronic halitosis)
• Biofilms on the tonsils

Saliva helps clean your mouth, freshen your breath, and even prevent certain diseases. The problem is that commercial toothpaste contains multiple factors that disrupt the chemistry of your saliva and can potentially harm your health.

However, you can make DIY toothpaste that’s simple, inexpensive, and effective to help avoid problems that are associated with commercial toothpaste. This natural toothpaste has no side effects and will support healthy saliva.
