I choose to use 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil daily, as I use it in everything already and had it on hand - plus I believe the health benefits of coconut oil outweighed the other oils in this case. Also, I get my coconut oil from Trader Joes.
Overall I haven't seen drastic changes except that my teeth feel REALLY clean
ALL the time.
Which in itself is worth it to me. You know that feeling after you come from the dentist and your mouth feels slick and super fresh? Oil pulling does that for me. My gum health seems to have improved slightly, though they were generally pretty healthy to begin with.
My second favorite perk is my teeth have become whiter, which is always a big plus!
Have you tried oil pulling? I would love to know what it did for you. And also, if you haven't what's your biggest question or why are you holding back?
