It’s so easy to wash away that dreaded morning breath with a bright blue liquid that leaves your mouth feeling “fresh.”
But there’s a HIDDEN SIDE EFFECT in conventional mouthwashes—one that leaves you WIDE OPEN to getting SICK!
See, mouthwash works by killing bacteria. It only makes sense to put an antibacterial agent in it.
But manufacturers have gotten it all wrong...
They’re adding triclosan– a chemical that is known to cause SUPERBUGS.
The problem with that is even though you’re not supposed to drink it, mouthwash inevitably makes it through your system via the mucosal membranes in your mouth or even down your esophagus.
And now, new research from Washington University in St. Louis shows triclosan allows more bacteria to survive – which helps it evolve resistances quicker.
Ultimately, this leads to hardier strains of bacteria that can survive MOST antibacterial treatments.
On other words, it may even be at the root cause of your UTI that just won’t go away…
Or that sinus infection you just can’t seem to kick.
So today, I’m going to let you in on a few natural remedies that give you the benefits of mouthwash—without letting your bacteria lift weights and put on superhero capes…
Mouthwashes that actually WORK
The key to having a clean-feeling mouth and non-offensive breath is still an anti-bacterial substance.
But you need a natural solution – something that won’t allow bacteria to evolve into superbugs.
Silver nanoparticles are among the most effective. If you have dentures, put a colloidal silver mouthwash at the top of your list. It’s been found to obliterate the three most common yeasts AND remove slimy biofilm.
However, there aren’t many of these out there. You can find them on Amazon, some natural health stores, and niche sites like Etsy.
Another option is to look for mouthwashes featuring tea tree oil and/or aloe vera. You’ll also find these on Etsy, but they’re far more prevalent on Amazon.
Some even add peppermint essential oil so you get that minty fresh breath you love.
If that’s still too difficult, reach for something you probably already have – coconut oil! Just swish it around your mouth for 30 seconds and spit it into your sink—it’s as easy as that!
