Coconut oil pulling is considered as one of the best oral care measures for healthy teeth and gums! Coconut oil pulling is known for its innumerable benefits, and has been practiced for decades in India. As of late it has become highly popular in the US and around the world.
Predominantly used in Ayurvedic medicine, oil pulling is a great oral detoxification procedure which is done by swishing a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes (preferably on an empty stomach for best results). It's as simple as tearing open a packet of PerlaCoco coconut oil, and swishing it in your mouth for a few minutes, and you get all of the benefits of coconut oil.
Coconut oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity. As the oil hits your teeth and gums, bacteria is picked up as though they are being drawn to a powerful magnet. Bacteria hiding under crevices in the gums and in pores within the teeth are pulled out of their hiding places and held firmly in the solution as it is being moved around your mouth. The oil bonds to the bacteria in your mouth and is much more effective as it's completely organic and doesn't strip away the enamel on your teeth.
