Rectifying digestion (aka prevention of build up of toxins in the body, called ama)
Cleansing the teeth and gums by way of tooth brushing is the first step in our oral hygiene and one that I hope for most of us, are already practicing! We all know teeth-cleaning helps to eliminate bacteria causing foul smell (halitosis), but did you know that a two-thousand-year-old Ayurvedic Tooth Powder could provide your teeth even MORE benefits without ANY side-effects? See, that isn’t so weird after all.
In ancient times and very commonly TODAY in India & sri Lanka and other parts of the world, people still use young twigs (often called Chew Sticks) of particular trees such as Neem or Licorice to clean ones teeth. Before we had shiny white preservative and sugar-filled toothpaste, in all kinds of flavours (Bubblegum) - we used the natural flavour, antibacterial and antifungal, mouth-freshening qualities of specific herbs, seeds and barks to clean our teeth. It would have been very common once-upon-a-time to use a crushed and powdered combination of herbs to pack the gums and mouth for daily oral hygiene. That’s exactly what this Ayurvedic tooth powder, Dashan Sanskar Choorana is.
