Danger to your health hid in toothpaste
When buying a toothpaste in a supermarket, I often choose mint or with oak bark extract, someone prefers bleaching or antibacterial paste, someone uses only expensive, and someone cheap. We all look at the packaging, but very few people study the composition. About useful and harmful the elements contained in your toothpaste, I will tell in more detail.
Calcium carbonate. If the toothpaste removes plaque on the teeth, it means it contains a rough abrasive called “calcium carbonate”, in fact, ordinary chalk. And the cheaper the paste, the larger the chalk, it is he who scratches the tooth enamel, erases the neck of the tooth and relieves teeth from plaque.
Fluorine. According to promotional dentists, this chemical the element literally “patches holes in the teeth” and promotes the healing of tooth enamel, but no one talks about its side effects.My dentist claims that fluorine is able to stain fillings and teeth in yellow-brown color, and also cause impaired bone mineralization.
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a substance that promotes abundant foaming of toothpaste and at the same time (even in small doses) creates favorable conditions for the development of cataracts and other at least serious diseases. Lauril is also dangerous because it has the ability penetrate our organs and accumulate in them. Sodium lauryl sulfate is active used in cosmetics, so I treat this substance with a large danger.
Antibiotics: chlorhexin, metronidazole, biclotymol, bisabolol ... My dentist recommended not buying toothpastes containing the above supplements. After all, they can cause dysbiosis mucous, intestines, often contribute to the development of thrush in children. Antibacterial Triclosan is very harmful for pregnant women because it can cause acid starvation of the fetus. I prefer to get rid of bacteria using soda solution.
Food flavors. I remember in kindergarten, we tried to taste each other's toothpastes.Strawberry and orange were the most delicious. Only now I understand that stuffing my products with different flavors, manufacturers poison children with chemicals, harmful for good health.
