Oil Pulling Craze: All-Purpose Remedy?

Story at-a-glance -

  • Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic Indian tradition that’s been around for thousands of years
  • To perform it, you simply swish an oil in your mouth, “pulling” it between your teeth for about 20 minutes, then spit it out (don’t swallow)
  • While sesame oil is used traditionally, coconut oil is preferable for its antibacterial properties and pleasant taste
  • Oil pulling has been shown to significantly reduce plaque, cavity-causing bacteria, and bad breath while improving gum health
  • The best time to do oil pulling is in the morning before eating breakfast, but it can be done at any time. For best results, do oil pulling daily (or even twice a day)
