Oil pulling works by cleaning (detoxifying) the oral cavity in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It literally sucks the dirt (toxins) out of your mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment that contributes to the proper flow of dental liquid that is needed to prevent cavities and disease.
This unbelievably effective procedure has been used for centuries as a traditional India remedy to:
Make sure to oil pull first thing in the morning right after you get out of bed before you brush your teeth or drink anything.
Gently swish 1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your mouth and between your teeth for 10-20 minutes making sure that you don’t swallow any of the oil. (Do this gently so you don’t wear out your jaw and cheeks!)
Spit out the oil in the trash (not the sink so it doesn’t clog up the plumbing…ask me how I know) and immediately rinse your mouth out with warm water (use salt water for added antimicrobial properties).
Finally, brush your teeth as normal.
Voila, easy as that!
What is coconut oil?
Coconut oil is natural substance obtained from fresh coconuts. It’s versatile and can be used as a butter substitute, baking ingredient or as a high-heat cooking oil. It’s also popular for skin/body/hair purposes.
How does coconut oil support health?
Approximately 60 percent of coconut oil is comprised of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), but, unlike other triglycerides (which mainly contain long chain fatty acids), MCTs may be beneficial to human health.*
Why Use Organic Coconut Oil?
It has only been recently that organic coconut oil was recognized as a healthy kind of oil. Part of the reason for that relates back to some testing performed in the 1960s, where the product tested was hydrogenated coconut oil. Of course, we know now that anything hydrogenated is extremely bad for you. With current tests supporting the use of coconut oil, here are some uses for organic coconut oil:
Healthy saturated fat – As strange as it may sound, saturated fat has been villanized. There are actually two different kinds of saturated fat, which haven’t been differentiated between up until now. There are the harmful omega-6 fats, which can lead to heart disease and other problems, and there are the omega-3 fatty acids, which are good acids for your body. Coconut oil contains mostly omega-3 acids.
Lauric acid – This fatty acid makes up about 50 percent of coconut oil. It’s the same fatty acid that is found in human breast milk.
Antiviral and antifungal – These properties stem from the lauric acid found in coconut oil. The lauric acid actually boosts the immune system, protecting the body from all kinds of diseases.
Provides energy – People who use coconut oil on a regular basis find their energy levels increase significantly.
What Are the Health Benefits of Coconut Oil?
Although coconut oil may seem like a relatively new concept, it has been a commonly-produced product for years in places like the Philippines and other Pacific islands. Since it has recently become a more popular product in the West, people have seen some changes in their health. Organic coconut oil health benefits include:
Promoting heart health – Organic virgin coconut oil is actually far healthier for you in terms of cholesterol than vegetable oil is. Coconut oil consumption keeps your cholesterol in healthy ranges, instead of causing your cholesterol to skyrocket. Healthy levels of cholesterol are necessary for your heart to avoid disease.
Improving skin and hair – If you have a skin condition, or you just need more moisture, coconut oil can help as a mineral oil. Some companies recommend using refined coconut oil for skin, but you’ll see more benefits with virgin coconut oil. Eczema victims can look to organic coconut oil benefits for soft skin. It also improves the strength of your hair, absorbing into the hair to prevent protein loss and damage.
Losing weight – Studies have shown that women who use a tablespoon of organic coconut oil every day were able to lose weight with an increase in exercise and a better daily caloric intake. The primary weight loss occurred around the abdomen, where women have the most difficult time losing weight.
Preventing diseases – Coconut oil is antibacterial and antiviral. That means that the body is better prepared to fight against diseases and even prevent disease from growing.
