Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/01/2016 -- Dental cavities otherwise known as tooth decay are typically caused by bacteria. They create acid that destroys the enamel of the tooth as well as the layer under it.
Turmeric is considered to be a natural alternative to help aid in the prevention of cavities. Turmeric has been a popular natural alternative for a variety of medical conditions over thousands of years. The potential therapeutic effects of this ancient spice are believed to come from its curcumin.
"Curcumin is a phytochemical that is believed to contain anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to some experts, there is a variety of bacteria that dwell in the human mouth. Once the bacteria build up on the teeth it can cause a sticky material called plaque. Plaque is a combination of bits of food, saliva, and natural substances. Plaque usually develops between the teeth, grooves in the back teeth, around dental fillings, and near the gum line. Bacteria often turn carbohydrates and sugar from food into acids. These acids then dissolve minerals and cause erosion of the enamel. Bacteria continue to grow and produce acid when decay is not removed. A main symptom of this is tooth sensitivity.
There are ways to prevent cavities by reducing the amount of bacteria and plaque in the mouth. This can be done by brushing and flossing on a daily basis. There are also antibacterial mouth rinses believed to help reduce the amount of bacteria that cause cavities.
According to latest research, cavities may also be caused by a deficiency in minerals as well as fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin D, and vitamin E. There are foods to avoid and ones that should be incorporated into one's diet.
Turmeric is often a recommended spice that is believed to fight cavities. This spice contains potentially antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are believed to help reduce cavity pain and may promote gum health. Turmeric is also believed to prevent the growth of bacteria in the mouth. Turmeric powder can be placed in the mouth for a few minutes then be rinsed off with lukewarm water.
Turmeric is a more popular natural alternative nowadays. As a matter of fact, there are many curcumin supplements available in the market that are commonly used worldwide.
Some of the more notable curcumin supplements contain a black pepper extract called piperine, which is believed to be a bioavailability-enhancing ingredient. It is believed to increase the absorption of curcumin's potentially beneficial properties inside the body. (amazon.com/tumeric-curcumin-with-piperine/dp/B00JA4TLTI)
