We all want whiter teeth (even if we don’t want to admit it), right?
Between my morning coffee & my love for red wine . . . My pearly whites could use all the help they can get!
But I lead an organic (atleast 90%) lifestyle & am scared of using harsh chemicals on my teeth all of the time! So, what did I find? . . .
Wait, what? You whiten your teeth with this messy, black powder?
My thoughts exactly & the answer is – yes!
We switched out our commercial toothpaste for a much better alternative months ago & haven’t looked back. . . But, I still want to be able to whiten my teeth! Thank goodness for Be Naturally Prepared.
I stumbled across activated charcoal when browsing their amazing site! Heather, the owner, shared the story of how she discovered this whitening gem–
-Heather of Be Naturally Prepared
Activated charcoal is a odorless, non-toxic, tasteless, fine black powder. It is most commonly made from bamboo or coconut shells and works by binding to chemicals and toxins within our bodies and removing them.
Once Heather began researching its use, she came across several blog posts sharing that activated charcoal whitened their teeth. She was blown away and over the moon excited to try. When she tried it & achieved fantastic results, she knew she had to carry in on her site.
Brush, brush, brush like normal
Rinse really well
Of course, I had to mention my love for radius toothbrushes because I’m obsessed! I have always had problems with my gums bleeding. . . I have healthy checkups at the dentist, use the softest bristles + don’t brush hard but I’ve always been sensitive about it. One day I decided to try this different brand (fancy toothbrushes in my mind) & BOOM! No bleeding. So soft. My teeth feel amazing! I’ve been a convert ever since. Just thought I would share that.
Also, I was an easy convert because their brand provides products that are as safe and toxin-free as possible, using materials that don’t include any BPA, suspect or harmful chemicals or unnecessary additives. Radius products are also free from latex, phthalate, glutens, and non-FDA-approved colors and dyes. (I care about companies that care about my health!)
If you are looking for a simple way to whiten and brighten your teeth or searching for the most important item to add to your health care kit, Activated Charcoal is it!
