Protect Your Mouth Microbiome With These Natural Solutions

Protect Your Mouth Microbiome With These Natural Solutions

Your oral microbiome is just as important as your gut microbiome. Your oral microbiome is linked to your digestion, immunity, nutrient absorption, cardiovascular health, and so much more. 
This means, when we use products that disrupt our oral microbiome, we also disrupt our countless other systems of the body. Mouthwash happens to be one of these products. 
It may leave your mouth with a minty fresh scent, but it’s also killing the bacteria that are trying to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
You know that cool mint Listerine that looks cool and minty? It contains dye green number three, which has been linked to bladder cancer. And then the original Scope contained yellow number five made from a derivative of coal tar. And blue number one has been connected to cancer in many of the animal tests that have been done.
This is why in today’s episode, we are going to explore solutions for the Fatal Convenience™: Mouthwash.
What I discuss:
00:14: What are the dangers of mouthwash?
05:16: What can you use instead of mouthwash to protect your microbiome?

    The “Do your own” mouth wash recipes are not in the show notes. Where can I find them?
