What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from coconut meat and is one of the world’s richest sources of saturated fat.
However, coconut fat is unique because it is made almost entirely of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs).MCTs are metabolized differently than the long-chain fatty acids found in most other foods and have many potential health benefits.
Lauric acid is a medium-chain fatty acid that makes up almost 50% of coconut oil. In fact, this oil is the richest source of lauric acid known to man. Your body breaks lauric acid down into a compound called monolaurin. Both lauric acid and monolaurin can kill harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses in the body.
According to research, lauric acid is more effective at killing these pathogens than any other saturated fatty acid.
What’s more, studies suggest that many of the health benefits associated with coconut oil are directly caused by lauric acid.
Lauric Acid Can Kill Harmful Mouth Bacteria
One study tested 30 different fatty acids and compared their ability to fight bacteria. Of all the fatty acids, lauric acid was the most effective (3Trusted Source).
Lauric acid attacks harmful bacteria in the mouth that can cause bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease (4Trusted Source).
It is particularly effective at killing an oral bacteria called Streptococcus mutans, which is a leading cause of tooth decay.
It Can Reduce Plaque and Fight Gum Disease
Gum disease, also known as gingivitis, involves inflammation of the gums.
It Can Prevent Tooth Decay and Loss.
Coconut oil attacks Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillus, which are the two groups of bacteria primarily responsible for tooth decay.
Several studies suggest that coconut oil can reduce these bacteria, which is the active ingredient used in many mouth rinses.
How to use coconut oil to whiten teeth?
The most popular ways to use coconut oil for your teeth are using it in a process called “oil pulling,” or making toothpaste and coconut oil teeth whitening strips.
Advantages of Onuge Coconut Oil Teeth Whitening strips
High-density gel teeth strips using matrix heap pressure and secondary coating technology have a density three times that of ordinary gel tooth strips and the whitening effect is equivalent to three times the ordinary tooth strips.
With high strength and high density, Onuge Coconut Oil Teeth Whitening strips have better adhesion than ordinary hydrogel tooth strips, and the adhesion to teeth is tighter.
Our products have a stronger resistance to water solubility and it is difficult for saliva to dissolve and destroy them, the whitening effect maintains a longer time and the effect is more significant.
