Celebrate World Oral Health Day by improving your overall oral health. Start by drinking Cistus incanus tea.
What Is World Oral Health Day?
On March 20 every year, the FDI World Dental Federation asks the world to unite to help reduce the burden of oral diseases, which affect individuals, health systems, and economies everywhere. Their purpose: to empower people with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to secure good oral health.
Oral diseases are a major health concern for many countries and negatively impact people throughout their lives. Oral diseases lead to pain and discomfort, social isolation, and loss of self-confidence, and they’re often linked to other serious health issues. The good news: most oral health conditions are largely preventable and can be treated in their early stages.
This year’s theme: Be Proud of Your Mouth. Value and take care of it. This year, the organization is focusing on the importance of oral health for overall health because good oral health can help you live a longer, healthier life.
Ways to Improve Your Oral Health
How can you improve your oral health? For starters, brush. Floss. Drink more water. See your dentist for regular cleanings and checkups.
Here’s one idea you may be less familiar with: Drink Cistus incanus tea.
According to the Public Library of Science Journal, Cistus incanus could serve as an alternative natural antibacterial and anti-biofilm component against oral infections. Cistus incanus tea works well for oral cavity hygiene. We like to use it as a mouth rinse in place of fluoride mouthwash. Its biofilm-busting activities significantly reduce oral bacteria and leave your mouth feeling clean.
Biofilm is a slimy layer of bacteria that can form on surfaces, and it may contribute to the development and persistence of chronic disease because it allows bacteria to evade antibiotics. Here’s what Cistus incanus does — it breaks down biofilm in the mouth, helping to destroy it and restore a healthy microbial balance in the human body. Drinking Cistus incanus tea, or even swishing with it as a mouth rinse, has been shown to provide oral health benefits and decrease adherence of pathogenic bacteria in the mouth.
As a bonus, drinking all-natural Cistus incanus tea brings many health benefits. It offers significant and scientifically proven immune support and scientifically proven relief of cold and flu symptoms. It also may help to repel mosquitoes and ticks, and it can be used externally to cleanse the skin and ameliorate eczema, acne, and psoriasis. (Make sure you’re getting high-quality Mediterranean Cistus, however. Read our FAQ.) That’s some good tea!
