Asparagus is a scrumptious summer vegetable that provides amazing benefits for your gut and teeth and gums.
Because it’s an excellent source of inulin – a prebiotic fiber that helps you digest probiotics. We talk a lot about the importance of probiotics in quite a few of our articles. Our article, “3 Reasons To Eat Fermented Foods”, explains a few of the wonderful benefits probiotics have to offer, as well as which foods you can find them in.
Probiotics are live bacteria that keep your gut in good health. We truly believe that keeping your gut healthy creates a foundation for a healthy body and mind, and also extends to dental health!
As Steven Lin, author of The Dental Diet, points out:
“The inulin found in asparagus feed your probiotic digestive flora. Add asparagus to your diet as a big boost of fiber. A healthy gut microbiome is key to healthy teeth.”
Our article, “How Your Gut Health and Oral Health are Related“, explains more about this gut-mouth connection.
On top of feeding our digestive flora, these cool, crunchy sticks are also brimming with folate, phosphorous, potassium, and vitamins A, C, E, and K. From just half a cup of cooked asparagus, you will receive 57% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin K: an essential nutrient involved in blood clotting and bone health.
Asparagus is also known for its whopping micronutrient content, including iron, zinc, and riboflavin.
The tooth powder that balances out your oral microbiome
Your oral microbiome is the first line of defense. When you create a healthy environment in your mouth, it sets the stage for everything to come.
We can’t stress enough the importance of using a product that is as close to nature’s source as possible, which contains none of the toxins or chemicals that strip your mouth of healthy bacteria.
This is why we created an all-natural tooth and gum powder jam-packed with 100% natural ingredients that neutralizes the pH balance in your mouth and helps to create a nutrient-rich environment that ensures a healthy balance of oral microbiome. This healthy, thriving habitat of the mouth helps you to chew and digest food more efficiently, as well as allowing the probiotic strains (healthy bacteria) to perform protective functions in the mouth.
When your mouth and oral microbiome are healthy and thriving, the rest of your body will thrive too!
