CLEAN, HEALTHY TEETH WITH NATURAL TOOTHPASTE

Since we were kids, we’ve been taught the importance of regularly brushing for clean, healthy teeth.  This is also important to prevent cavities and gum disease.  However, we have been led to believe that clean, healthy teeth is only possible with dentist-approved,  commercial toothpastes.  The thing is that many of these toothpastes contain a cocktail of synthetic ingredients that can be harmful to our health.

Clean, healthy teeth are possible with natural toothpastes.

Chemicals in Toothpastes

Toothpastes are full of unpronounceable chemicals.  Go on, go and read the ingredient list!  When we clean our teeth, even the most diligent amongst us can’t prevent small amounts of toothpaste being swallowed; and, once swallowed, the chemicals found in these toothpastes can enter into our bloodstream.

Some of the harsher chemicals commonly found in commercial toothpastes include preservatives such as parabens, Sodium Benzoate, Propylene Glycol, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), often used in harsh industrial cleaners and paint strippers for their effectiveness in stripping oils.  Commercial toothpastes can also contain harsh abrasives such as calcium phosphate or calcium carbonate, as well as artificial colours and sweeteners.  And, the jury is still out on the benefits or otherwise of fluoride on our health.

Imagine swallowing this cocktail of chemicals every day?  Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that you and your kids’ daily ritual of brushing your teeth won’t undermine yours and their health?

The case for Natural toothpaste

If you are ready to switch the commercial toothpaste for an all-natural one that is preservative-free, then Argital Toothpaste may be the choice for you and your family.

Instead of harsh and toxic ingredients, Argital’s toothpastes include ingredients such as fine green clay, which is a natural, non-abrasive cleaning agent that helps keep teeth white and clean.   Our toothpastes include no artificial colours, and are naturally sweetened and flavoured with pure essential oils of peppermint, cinnamon, anise and lemon.  Most importantly, they are effective in keeping your teeth healthy and clean.

Remember that natural toothpastes do take some getting used to.  They aren’t artificially sweetened or bleached, so be prepared for the earthier tastes and colours.  However, this is a minor adjustment and well worth the benefits of ditching the chemicals.
