What’s a miswak?
A miswak is a natural toothbrush picked from the tree ‘Salvadora persica’, which is also known as the ‘Peelu’ tree or ‘Arak’ in Arabic.
How it can give you beautiful teeth
The miswak has a very unique chemical composition (which are all totally natural) that aren’t found in many places. Mentioned below are just ‘some’ of the properties.
Natural properties found within the miswak
The miswak contains numerous antiseptics that kill harmful microorganisms, which cause bad breath, mouth ulcers, gum disease as well as bleeding of the gum.
Silica acts as an abrasive material, which removes stains and other deposits from the surface of the tooth… or in short, whitens your teeth.
Sodium bicarbonate has an abrasive effect when rubbed against the teeth. Heck, even the ‘American Dental Associate’ recommends sodium bicarbonate as a preferred ingredient in toothpastes. This is the best whitening toothpaste alternative out there.
Natural resin form a layer over the enamel when the miswak is used. This then acts as a shield and protects your teeth from microbial action.
The miswak contains natural scented oils that serve as two functions. The first is fresher breath, as the natural scent perfumes your mouth and the second is that it helps stimulate the flow of saliva.
