Greens You Want to Eat for Improved Oral Health


Posted on 8/30/2018 by Alyce
Greens You Want to Eat for Improved Oral HealthPopeye ate spinach in order to strengthen his muscles, but he never once considered the benefits for his teeth.

In real life, many dentists recommend the consumption of leafy green vegetables to boost oral health. Read on to learn more about the best greens for your oral health and why they are so important.

What Are the Best Green Vegetables for Oral Health?


Green vegetables are packed full of the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain – and improve – your smile.

There are several great options:

•  Spinach
•  Asparagus
•  Chard
•  Cabbage
•  Lettuce
•  Kale

Green vegetables like celery are also Superfoods when it comes to your teeth.

Why Are Leafy Greens So Good for Your Oral Health?


Leafy greens are a good addition to your diet, as they offer oral health and total health benefits. There are a variety of benefits associated with these vegetables:

•  Calcium. Leafy greens are high in calcium, which is needed to maintain strong enamel.
•  Folic acid. This B vitamin has many benefits, including the treatment of gum disease during pregnancy.
•  Low in calories. By swapping leafy greens with high-calorie items in your diet, you could reduce your sugar content, which benefits your teeth.

Adding some greens to your next meal can dramatically benefit your oral health.

How Can You Eat More Leafy Greens?


If you aren't a fan of salads, you can still add leafy greens to your diet. Try out some new recipes and add vegetables into:

•  Soup
•  Raw wraps
•  Juice or smoothies
•  Hummus
•  Dips
•  Pesto
