Proponents of oil pulling claim that the benefits include whiter teeth, better breath, help allergies and even help insomnia.

The basic concept behind oil pulling works like this: by swishing oil in the mouth for 20 minutes the oil will pull toxins from your body. Bacteria will stick to the oil over time and once it is spit out, the bacteria will be removed from the body completely.

Currently, better oral health from oil pulling does have some clinical evidence to back it up. Dr. Edward F. Group III has conducted several studies on oil pulling and the results are telling. In one study that used sunflower oil there was a very noticeable reduction in gingivitis among those who tried it. In a separate 2008 study  it was noted that there was a  “remarkable reduction in the total count” of mouth bacteria and cavities.

Though there is increasing data to back up the benefits of oil pulling, there is still much debate to be had. Some have argued the the potential ingestion of the oil could be perceived as a negative for ones health and may overwrite the potential positives of oil pulling.

As for the other argued benefits of the method, there is still no hard evidence to back it up. Dr. Sanda Moldovan had this to say on the topic.

“Basically, brushing for two minutes twice a day and Waterpiking is much, much better than oil pulling. It can get in places the oil can’t. But if they want to use as substitute for mouth rinse, that’s totally fine.”
