Which product is considered to be a natural teeth whitener? Why should follow the cheese dessert? Is Ruining teeth sweet raisins? Find out the answers to these questions and keep their teeth healthy.

To begin with we give general guidelines to help less often look to the dentist for treatment.

Naturally, the cornerstone - balanced diet containing foods rich in calcium (for example, cheese, herbs or almonds), in conjunction with products rich in phosphorous (e.g., meat, fish or eggs). This combination will keep tooth enamel strong and healthy. Calcium is useful for human bones, including the jaw.

Unsubscribe from all, it should be sweet, flour, or "sticky": candy, cookies, cakes, chips, bread. These products can be kept for a long time on the teeth, providing fertile ground for the growth of bacteria. Do not forget that many sprays, lozenges and cough drops or sore throat contain sugar - the coveted "Energy" for caries. Strenuous exercise can also have a negative impact. Consider these moments and regularly throughout the day rinse your teeth, it is desirable to fluoridated water.

Short rumination without sugar after a meal also is good for your teeth: deft movements removed particles of food left between the teeth, as well as increased salivation, which reduces microbial plaque.


One of the publications of the journal General Dentistry reports that adolescents 12-15 years of age who ate cheddar cheese had a lower level of acidity in the mouth than those who ate yogurt without sugar or drinking milk. And that's how it was.

After eating guys rinse your mouth with water, then they measured the levels of pH, repeat the procedure with 10, 20 and 30 minutes. Those who ate and drank yoghurt milk was not observed value changes pH. And the guys who ate cheese, on the contrary, it was observed rapid decline. Scientists came to the conclusion that the cheese neutralizes hyperacidity background by slowing the growth of bacteria. The very chewing, accompanied by profuse salivation, contributed to the elimination of the bacteria from the mouth.

In addition to this cheese contains calcium - a key ingredient of the mineral hydroxyapatite reinforcing teeth and casein - protein complex involved in the stabilization of enamel.
It is because of useful properties for teeth cheese is recommended to serve as a dessert or after it.


Researchers from the University of Illinois found that the polyphenols present in green and black tea inhibit the growth of bacteria that are associated with the formation of tooth decay and gum disease.

Scientists have documented that people rinse mouth with black tea for one minute 10 times a day, there was a smaller number of harmful micro-organisms than humans, rinse your mouth with plain water.
Other studies have brought out the recommended standard for tea lovers - 3-4 cups a day.

You should not ignore the fact that tea helps fight bad breath. According to the scientific community, all the same polyphenols neutralize sulfur compounds, exuding a bad smell.

In fairness mention that tea contains tannins - phenolic compounds with ink properties. And the darker the drink, the more tannins in it. Therefore overreliance tea can degrade lighter shade of your teeth. In connection with this is to prefer green tea because of its smaller dyeing properties, but at the same time good protective function.


For the sweet taste of raisins often ranked among the products harmful teeth. However, due to its sweetness safer (compared to sugar) fructose, and in addition more and Mother Nature decreed that phytochemicals contained in raisins, kill cariogenic bacteria. According to other sources, dried grapes are useful for the gums, as they contain compounds resisting pathogens.

Therefore, a moderate amount of raisins can be an excellent basis for desserts and drinks, giving them the necessary sweetness without adding table sugar, and accordingly, and unnecessary risks for the teeth. The main thing - know when to stop! Indeed, obesity, diabetes and several other diseases raisins is not recommended for use.
And another fact to note: the darker the grapes (raisins), the more nutrients it contains.

Crunchy vegetables and fruits

Chewing a carrot, apple or cucumber helps clean the tooth surface mechanically. Vegetables are high in fiber require careful chewing, during which a large amount of saliva, washing teeth naturally. Besides crispy "bed" massages the gums, improving their condition.
However, it is not necessary to conclude that pickled vegetables, such as cucumbers, are also useful.

Vinegar - the foundation of any marinade - the real enemy of your teeth. According to a study of British scientists, the daily eating pickles increases the wear of the teeth. But indulge on holidays can still be rare occurrences sour-salty will not have a harmful influence.


Widespread red berry of interest to us thanks to the unique set contained therein acids: citric, malic, quinic, salicylic, phosphoric, and many others. How Come?
Blow (h) tion combination acids can destroy agents, coloring tooth enamel, to make your smile more attractive.

Creating a natural tooth whitener will not be difficult. Enough to stretch strawberries, mix it with baking soda, put on a soft brush, spread the teeth and leave the "pasta" for five minutes. Followed by a rinse your mouth and if necessary, clean the spaces between his teeth caught in their bones. Done!

Products That Work Best Pairs

Products That Work Best Pairs

Note to vegetarians and all who wish to give up animal products: not always the presence of large amounts of nutrients in plant foods means that you will get them to the same extent as that of meat or other "animal" products. Sometimes, in order to become superedoy, they need help mate

We are accustomed to a certain combination of products that are classic for us. For example, boiled new potatoes with garlic and fresh dill or borscht with sour cream. They come in pairs because it is simply delicious, and also because we are used to it. They make the perfect flavor combination. But there are some products that do not just complement each other in taste and become superpoleznymi exclusively in the presence of his partner.

Some of these options will be familiar to you, but some might be surprised, but any of the combinations could usefully complement your diet.

Black beans + bell pepper

Black beans are a good source of iron. This iron from plant sources is called non-heme and absorbed by the body is not as good as iron that you would get from eating meat. Only about 2 to 20% of "vegetable" fall iron from the digestive tract into the blood compared to 15-35% "animal" iron. Dr. Cynthia Sass said that thanks to the assistance of vitamin C, which is rich with red bell pepper, the amount of digestible "vegetable" iron increased six-fold!

This combination I use in addition to tomatoes, garlic, corn and green when preparing something like chili.

Wholegrain + garlic + onion

As in the case of beans, iron and zinc, contained in the whole grain have a low bioavailability, i.e. they are metabolised (undergo chemical transformation) is faster than the body can reach them. The fact that the whole grain, in addition to the usual nutrients us (same zinc and iron), containing minerals with which they are associated, and this adversely affects their absorption by the body.

Studies have shown that foods high in sulfur, such as onions and garlic, whole grain helps to give more nutrients. For example, research conducted in 2010 and published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, showed that the addition of onions or garlic in dishes containing whole grains (raw or cooked), increases the availability of iron and zinc to the human body.

Perhaps that is why dumplings with garlic bread or of dark flour with salt, onion or garlic vprikusku so delicious! Especially with the soup. ;)

Tomatoes + olive oil

The couple seemed purposely devised for Italian food! In the olive oil contains vegetable fat, good for the heart. It increases the level of "good" cholesterol and lowers levels of "bad", which is the cause of clogged arteries. And in combination with tomatoes this ability increases even more!

In the Free Radical Biology and Medicine was conducted 2,000 investigations in which people ate tomato dishes paired with olive and sunflower oil. Researchers have discovered that olive oil increases the antioxidant activity of lycopene in tomatoes while sunflower oil gave no such effect.

For this couple has a huge number of delicious recipes! Even just tomatoes, baked in olive oil with garlic and milled in tomato soup are almost culinary masterpiece.

Salmon + kale

In order to get the most out of calcium, it should be used together with vitamin D. Vitamin D This helps better absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract into the blood and normalizes blood calcium level. One of the options - eat foods rich in calcium, and vitamins and sunbathing. The other - to use products that contain both calcium and vitamin D. Salmon paired with greens or collard greens - just in case!

Broccoli + tomatoes

This couple shows excellent anti-cancer properties. In 2007, a study was conducted in which patients have developed cancer in rats different diets, which included either tomatoes or broccoli, or both at a time. After completion of the experiment was checked, which showed some of the diets was most effective. Diet, which contained a 10% and 10% of tomatoes broccoli, caused tumor shrinkage by 52%. Diet, which included only tomatoes, showing a decline of 34%, and only with broccoli diet - by 42%.

By the way, braised broccoli in olive oil with tomatoes - it's delicious! As adding broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes in a pesto.

Green tea + black pepper

A strange combination, but it works! In green tea contains powerful antioxidant, which is also known as EGCG. Better yet, he reveals its anti-cancer properties in tandem with piperine, a chemical substance found in black pepper.

Where can I use this combination? It turns out that green tea brewed with the addition of black pepper, garlic and ginger marinade is great!

Turmeric + black pepper

Piperine in black pepper works well paired not only with green tea. It is also nice to get along with turmeric as it combines powerful anitoksidant curcumin, which is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibacterial agent with piperine. Curcumin itself too quickly absorbed by the body and does not have time to share their magical abilities to the full, and piperine enhances its bioavailability in 1000 again.

Brussels sprouts + olive oil

In this mini-cabbage contains large amounts of vitamin K, which regulates blood clotting in the body, and is also useful for bones. Vitamin K is a fat soluble, which means it is better absorbed in a pair with a meal that contains fat. And here comes to the aid of olive oil, which helps to assimilate vitamin K. The easiest option - baked or braised brussels sprouts with olive oil.

Collard greens + almonds

Another leaf vegetable with a high content of vitamin K - collard greens. Also vitamin K comprises vitamin E is an antioxidant, which enhances our immunity and protection against heart disease and cancer. This vitamin like vitamin K is lipid-soluble and should be paired. This can become a perfect pair almonds, which is the source of monounsaturated fats. From this couple get a very tasty salad!

Connect dark chocolate and apple has a powerful potential that will improve the condition of your cardiovascular system. In the skin of red apple contains flavonoids quercetin, which has anti-inflammatory properties, and dark chocolate, thanks it contains cocoa is rich in catechins, antioxidants that help prevent arteriosclerosis. A couple of them cope well with the destruction of blood clots.

Slices of apples in black chocolate - delicious and healthy dessert!

Garlic + salmon

Garlic as an additive to salmon not only makes the fish more flavorful, but also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. In 1997, the experiment was conducted, during which tested the effects of this culinary couple on the condition of men with high cholesterol levels in the blood. In groups who consumed 900 mg of garlic and 12 g of fish oil, as there was a reduction of total cholesterol (12.2%) and "bad" cholesterol (9%). So, if you do not like to swallow fish oil capsules and you plan to get the most out of this advantageous combination in the preparation of oily sea fish, add a little garlic.

Herbs and spices are used for thousands of years, not only as a seasoning for food, but also as a medicine. Today such folk recipes rarely resorted, and more used as a seasoning or taken orally in the form of tablets, capsules or tinctures. Turmeric - one of those spices!


Turmeric has been used as a drug, as a food additive, and also in industrial applications as a natural colorant for textile and food industries. Of the many species, only three are used in cooking: turmeric, turmeric Curcuma zedoaria and flavorful. Also, these types of turmeric may be referred to under the name "Indian saffron" (not to be confused with real saffron). In Europe she came through the Arab merchants in the Middle Ages and was called Indian saffron.
Useful properties for runners

In turmeric contains curcumin, which is a very powerful antioxidant. Its main role - reducing inflammation.

If you actively run, you probably know what inflammation, and faced with this unpleasant physical phenomenon after challenging workouts almost every time. Usually, the inflammation is caused by the release of free radicals. Causes - diet, lifestyle, digestive problems and cardiovascular system, diabetes and chronic diseases. Intensive sports are also responsible for the production of free radicals. Free radicals adversely affect the biological membrane, and this slows down metabolism and reduces efficiency.

To resolve this problem, there are special drugs that are potent antioxidants, but they can be taken only if you painted welcome your doctor or trainer. This is usually done when really heavy loads. If you run three times a week for 5-10 km, drinking these drugs do not have to, in this case, you can resort to the healing properties of turmeric. If you are already taking any medication, then before you decide on the acceptance of tablets with turmeric, it is necessary to consult a doctor: in high doses, this spice is not so innocent!

Studies have shown that people with osteoarthritis of the knee, taking six weeks turmeric extract were able to minimize the pain sensation to such an extent that previously achieved reception of 800 mg of ibuprofen daily. This is due to all the same curcumin, which reduced the number of inflammatory compounds in the cells of the cartilage. These pills are sold over the counter, but if you are not sure that you have no contraindications, it is better to consult a doctor.

Another option - the tablet extract of turmeric with black pepper. Curcumin itself rather poorly absorbed by the body, and comes to the aid piperine contained in black pepper, which makes it more active substance.

Should not use turmeric for medicinal purposes to those who have stones in the gallbladder or bile duct clogged. Also, it is worth remembering that curcumin is a kind of amplifier and it should not be taken with certain medications, as it enhances their effect. For example, the effects of turmeric has already been installed on diabetes drugs that lower blood sugar. The combined use can lead to dizziness, fainting and even coma.
