What does coconut oil do for gingivitis?

Hi Nikki,

Coconut oil kills germs that cause gum diseases like gingivitis. But that’s not all. Medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) generously found in coconut oil also destroy microbes that cause bad breath and tooth decay, keeping your mouth clean and healthy.

If you decide to stop using conventional/commercial toothpastes (you really should) that usually contain harmful ingredients like cancer-causing ones, brush your teeth daily using a mixture of baking soda and coconut oil.

Also, take note that gingivitis is a sign of nutritional deficiency. Make sure you’re taking the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA) of magnesium, vitamin C and all the B vitamins. Don’t forget to rub infected area with coconut oil. Very helpful!

Hope this helps,
