fruits-and-vegetables

Like many Americans, January and February are a time to renew healthful habits and begin new ones. Juicing is a great way to get in your fruits and vegetables in a convenient and sometimes tastier way. Juices made fresh in your kitchen do still have a high, albeit natural, sugar content and can be high in acidity depending on the ingredients. These qualities can still cause cavities and tooth decay if you aren’t careful. Below are a few helpful hints to enjoy your fresh squeezed juice without harming your teeth.

1. Use a straw. 

This is a great tip for any beverage that could stain your teeth (coffee, dark juices). Using a straw limits contact with your tooth’s enamel.

2. Use ripe fruits. 

These contain less acid than unripe fruits.

3. Increase vegetable content. 

Vegetables are lower in sugar than fruits, and are often the missing component in our diets.

4. Add in some coconut oil. 

Coconut oil is delicious and great for your oral and overall health. It contains antibacterial qualities and good fats.

5. Cranberries! 

Cranberries are surprisingly great for your oral health. They contain qualities that prevent bacteria from sticking to your teeth.

 

Happy juicing!
