Moringa and Teeth Health
What can Moringa do for my Teeth
Our dried Moringa powder is rich in the nutrients your body needs for healthy teeth, it contains 40.06mg of Calcium, 7.36mg of Magnesium, and 26.48mg of Potassium per 2g serving of Moringa. For Calcium alone that's 17 times the Calcium of Milk (dry gram for gram comparison). These nutrients are essential for healthy teeth and along side Manganese, Boron and Vitamin D, play a vital role in preventing poor teeth and gums health.
Many chronic diseases are a result of poor nutritional health, all of us should protect our teeth today, with a health diet, regular visits to the dentist and of course brushing and flossing. Once tooth decay sets in, it is irreversible, not only destroying your smile but leading to other complications which will adversely affect your life.
