Fight Tooth Decay with Beet Juice


According to the NIH (National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research), 92% of adults between the ages of 20 to 60 have tooth decay.

Tooth decay occurs when bacteria in your mouth creates lactic acids that eat away at the tooth. The root cause is sugar, since bacteria uses sugar as the substance with which to adhere to the tooth. These bacteria can eventually turn into plaque - a sticky, colourless film of bacteria proliferating on our teeth. Tooth decay can be minimized by a healthy diet that involves cutting down on sugary foods. Did you know there ís something you can add to your healthy eating habits that can actually help prevent tooth decay?
