Mint is one of the most beloved flavors in the world, and also happens to be one of the best natural remedies for gum diseases. Mint leaves and mint oil both contain germicidal properties that can clear out bacterial and fungal infections quickly, making them perfect for boosting oral health. Gum diseases are primarily a result of bacteria getting into the cracks of your teeth and below the gum line, so chewing on mint leaves can deliver the powerful antiseptic compounds directly to the site of common infections, preventing or treating gum diseases in an effective and breath-freshening way!
