We have all learned about the importance of maintaining adequate levels of minerals (especially calcium), fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) and nutrients in our diet to keep our bones and teeth healthy. But have you heard that digesting the right levels of these essential micro-nutrients can help to repair tooth decay? Well, according to some studies, dental researchers no longer solely attribute tooth cavities and decay to damage caused by sugary treats - a lack of nutrients in your diet play a part too. And although it was once thought that this damage was permanent, dental pioneers like Dr Weston Price (the Weston A. Price Foundation) claim that increasing minerals, vitamins and nutrients can also repair the damage we have caused. The video clip below suggests incorporating coconut oil, organic dairy and meats, organic vegetables and organ and gland meats will give you a boost.
Interesting thought right? It is certainly worth considering improving our diets for a whole range of health benefits including looking after our teeth.
