Turmeric is one of the most popular herbal remedies for gum diseases, as this spice possesses antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. This can be very useful for treating the pain, inflammation and bleeding associated with gum diseases, while the antiseptic and antioxidant compounds in turmeric can actively prevent bacterial and fungal infections in the mouth and gums. Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, is primarily responsible for these incredible effects, so if you feel like your oral health has been suffering, toss some turmeric on your next meal!
