Irish scientists have tested coconut oil samples on streptococcus mutans. This is bacteria that glues to our teeth and causes dental erosion. For this reason coconut oil should be the main ingredient in toothpastes! Which is why it is one of our main ingredients in our toothpaste.
A research team from the Athlone Institute of Technology tested the antibacterial action of coconut oil in its natural state and coconut oil that had been treated with enzymes, in a process similar to digestion. The oils were tested against strains of Streptococcus bacteria. They found that enzyme-modified coconut oil strongly inhibited the growth of most strains of Streptococcus bacteria including Streptococcus mutans – a major cause of caries.

The group, who presented their work at the Society for General Microbiology's autumn conference at the University of Warwick, were prompted to investigate the effect of enzyme-modified foods on bacteria after many previous studies showed that partially digested foodstuffs are active against microorganisms.

Dr Damien Brady, the lead researcher, remarked: 'Incorporating enzyme-modified coconut oil into dental hygiene products would be an attractive altern-ative to chemical additives, particularly as it works at relatively low concentrations.' Coconut oil also kills the fungus Candida albicans very effectively (research) which is thought to play a major role in the manifestation of cancer. Common candida overgrowth symptoms include bad breath (halitosis), chronic fatigue, bloating, irritability, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, severe seasonal allergies, sensitivity to alcohol and products that come into contact with the skin such as deodorant and perfume.

Coconut oil for osteoporosis

Oxidative stress and free radicals have been implicated in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis. Therefore, antioxidant compounds have the potential to be used in the prevention and treatment of the disease. In this study, we investigated the effects of virgin coconut oil (VCO) on bone microarchitecture in a postmenopausal osteoporosis rat model. VCO is a different form of coconut oil as it is rich with antioxidants. Three-month-old female rats were randomly grouped into baseline, sham-operated, ovariectomized control (Ovx), and ovariectomized rats fed with 8% VCO in their diet for six weeks (Ovx+VCO). Bone histomorphometry of the right femora was carried out at the end of the study. Rats supplemented with VCO had a significantly greater bone volume and trabecular number while trabecular separation was lower than the Ovx group. In conclusion, VCO was effective in maintaining bone structure and preventing bone loss in estrogen-deficient rat model.

Instagram Repost πŸ‘‰ @jelainegodwin So, I've only used my new toothpaste a few times so far, but I really like it. I'm left with a clean feeling that doesn't leave an artificially sweet aftertaste. Thanks to @ugly_by_nature for making a toothpaste that is #vegan #nonGMO #crueltyfree #glutenfree and #freeoffluoride. The fact there are also #noartificialcolors #noparabens #nopreservatives is amazing too! I'm still getting used to #nofoamingagents, but I like the change. I took a 'before' picture so I can see the difference over time. All the reviews say there's a major difference in just a couple weeks. #yayforhealthyteeth

Repost πŸ‘‰@veganaprilfool - NOT SPONSORED!
A rare (actually think it's my first) non food post! But never the less it's really important because animal exploitation is everywhere even in your toothpaste! Not to mention all he nasty chemicals in there too! That's why I want to say a humongous thank you to @ugly_by_nature for making a vegan non toxic toothpaste that really works! The color is so freaky but my oh my what an amazing toothpaste. My teeth has never felt cleaner nor have they ever looked whiter. It's so great that there are people like the ones behind uglybynature who can make amazing products out of simple ingredients at test it on them selfs instead of animals who has no choice! So once again, THANK YOU 🌱
