Refreshing Oral Health Benefits of Mint

Refreshing Oral Health Benefits of Mint

Improving oral health is one of the well known benefits of mint. The leaves are packed with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to help rid the mouth of harmful bacteria and prevent dental ailments.

Mint, also known as mentha, is actually a group of 15-20 plant species including spearmint and peppermint. You know that tingly fresh feeling we associate with mint? It’s an effect of menthol, a compound found within the plant, which triggers cold-sensitive reporters in soft tissues that produce a cooling sensation. 

This powerful herb used to be rubbed directly onto teeth and gums to heal common oral health problems. Today, for the same reasons, mint is one of the most common ingredients found in dental hygiene products. 

How Mint Improves Oral Health

  • Instantly freshens breath
  • Inhibits the growth of bacteria in the mouth
  • Helps prevent tooth decay
  • Anti-inflammatory properties keep gums healthy
  • Naturally whitens teeth

You can find organic Mentha spicata (spearmint) flavor extract and organic menthol in our Whitening Mineral Toothpaste and Cleansing Mouth Rinse. Sourced from high-quality suppliers at Fair Trade prices, our plant-based ingredients are mixed into gentle formulas that will leave your mouth feeling naturally clean and fresh.
