Swirling virgin coconut oil around your mouth or brushing your teeth with activated charcoal?
Which do you prefer?
These are the two hottest and most preferred methods to make your teeth look pearly white, but they may be difficult to choose from. So today we are going to take a closer look at oil pulling and activated charcoal and help you decide which method is better for teeth whitening.
What's Up with Oil Pulling?
The ancient oral remedy, originating from India, can be done using any oil, but according to many experts, coconut oil is by far the best. This technique involves swirling our special coconut oil pulling formula in your mouth for about 5 to 20 minutes and then spitting it out. Swishing and swirling oil causes harmful bacteria and toxins to get adhered to the oil in your mouth. After spitting it out, you are left with a bacteria free mouth with pleasant breath and whitened teeth.
However, oil pulling does not only help in oral health but also in overall health. It is proven to reduce headaches and help deal with skin conditions such as acne. It is also believed to aid in better digestion and reduce glucose levels.

What's the hype of activated charcoal all about?
Activated charcoal is formed by heating and oxidizing common charcoal. This activated charcoal, when brushed in teeth, will stick to common stains, such as: coffee, tea or wine. After these stains stick to the charcoal and are brushed away, your teeth will be left completely white!
Other than the oral benefits it provides, activated charcoal is believed to settle upset stomach, remove toxins and lower cholesterol.
