Nature’s Toothbrush

Posted .

Were you aware that celery can be good for your oral health? It’s true! Celery is one of the most helpful things you can consume for your oral health, and it’s even been called nature’s toothbrush. Find out a bit more about this oral superfood by going over this post, and feel free to ask us about good diet choices for oral health during your next exam in our Charlotte, North Carolina, office.

Celery is defined as nature’s toothbrush since the natural strings that grow in it make it great for removing plaque, leftover food particles and the bacteria that so often associate with them. What’s more, celery strengthens the welfare of your teeth and gums through the vitamins it contains. It contains vitamin A, which helps mucous membranes, and vitamin C, which can keep your teeth from loosening.

You can consume celery alone, but it’s also delicious with dips like guacamole and hummus. Celery is great in salads, whether leafy green salads or salads such as pasta salad or chicken salad. Finally, no celery recipe suggestion would be right without suggesting ants on a log! (Just go easy on the ants.)
