Oil Pulling Makes Coconut Oil the New Listerine!

Oil Pulling Holds Antibacterial Benefits, Coconut Oil May be the New Listerine

Oil pulling, a new mouth detoxification trend that has its roots dating back to over 2000 years, may actually hold antibacterial benefits for the mouth, experts believe.

Oil pulling basically involves the use of coconut oil or any other food oil to be swished around in the mouth for 20 minutes a day in an attempt to deal with many forms of oral health problems- a practise recommended by the ancient Indian Ayurvedic practitioners. Earlier, this practise was believed to help dental caries and provide relief from tooth pain, but the experts today strongly believe that this practise could actually brighten up your smile and curb hangovers.

Oil Pulling Holds Antibacterial Properties

This practise reportedly gained its much deserved importance after celebrity health nut Gwyneth Paltrow’s interview, where she confessed trying this practise to improve her skin health and whitening her teeth.

“It’s improving blood circulation,” Rakesh Modi, a resident of India who practises Ayurvedic medicine himself, explains. “You’re getting oxygen in your blood into the local area, which is required for the healing process.”

To find out if this practise actually works, a Leslie Liang, an assistant professor of dentistry at the University of Toronto, conducted a short study and asked 12 patients to try out this oil pulling technique. “Not only did they find their mouths felt a lot moister, they also noticed that whatever teeth they had left — because they might have been decayed — they looked brighter,” Liang explained. “There seemed to be a glossiness to them which they wouldn’t have had with a dry mouth.”

Looks like the ancient Ayurvedic practises do have a certain amount of credibility to their offerings after all!
