Good reasons to drink Green tea.
Quote:
Green Tea Can Kill Bacteria, Which Improves Dental Health and Lowers Your Risk of Infection
The catechins in green tea also have other biological effects.

Some studies show that they can kill bacteria and inhibit viruses like the influenza virus, potentially lowering your risk of infections (30Trusted Source, 31, 32Trusted Source, 33Trusted Source).

Streptococcus mutans is the primary harmful bacteria in the mouth. It causes plaque formation and is a leading contributor to cavities and tooth decay.

Studies show that the catechins in green tea can inhibit the growth of Streptococcus mutans. Green tea consumption is associated with improved dental health and a lower risk of caries (34Trusted Source, 35Trusted Source, 36Trusted Source, 37Trusted Source).

Multiple studies also show that green tea can reduce bad breath (38Trusted Source, 39)


This is quoted from Healthline. Not the best source but a start.

Fascinating. I have become a green tea fan lately, because Dr. Fung says it's a good thing.

Dental went well today. Very little cleaning this time. Even got $50 off on the procedure. It was the best yet, well maybe since I was 20.

Green tea. There's a compound in this much-studied tea that “suppresses the appetite and boosts the metabolism a bit,” says Fung. Some research suggests that the drink can help ward off cancer, too.

Beneficial Effects of Green Tea


AND it is a source of L-theanine, a stress reducing nutrient. I combo that with GABA for something like tranquilizers: only much better than Xanax!

Quote:
L-theanine, on the other hand, promotes relaxation and stress reduction without sedating. ... L-theanine has positive effects on both the mental and physical symptoms of stress, including lowering heart rate and blood pressure.

What You Need to Know About L-theanine


This is why my fasting routine is salt, green tea, and coconut oil I love the St Dalfour brand which has flavors like mint, raspberry, and orange. It doesn't have the "stewed cigar" taste green tea used to have. I get it from iHerb.com

lol, stewed cigar !! Now I will think of THAT when sipping a plain cup of green tea. lol

Been thinking about last visit to dentist. Same hygenist, new doctor.

New doc suggested that I brush too hard, and reminded me to use a soft brush. Really bugged me 'cause my gums have improved sooooooo much with my own efforts. sheeeesh.

I rarely floss as Im concerned it gouges the flesh at the gum line. If meat or veg fiber ie asparagus gets caught, then,ya, a little flossing is required.

Been thinking of taking a picture of my teeth, at least the fronts, to have a record of the gums.....

Don't know when I'll get to the dentist for a cleaning. That's unless they figure out a way to do it six feet apart

Im hoping the goverment figures out and acknowledges the impact of diet..... and STOPS pushing the hugh carb diet as 80-90% of Americans have a compromised metabolism.

Toward the end of the article is a graph. Lists the effects on the teeth due to change in diet to keto.

I can safely say that a worrying gum problem I had has been managed since starting low carb. My gums were becoming "floppy" I guess in a certain spot..... the spot where you chew the most. Food would go straight under the gums... horrible to clean, bloody and quite painful. I noticed some improvement in the first week, and then went a few days on soft foods (mostly poached eggs) to take a break from hard chewing, and the problem has cleared up. This is miraculous, because I have been fighting gum problems in that spot for years.
