Many people have teeth problems but they tend to use natural based toothpaste and healthier diet. Oral health and tooth decay can be shown from inside, that is with the food choice. Dr. Weston says:
“One of the problems that contribute to our unhealthy diet is the Phytic acid which can be found in seeds, nuts, beans and grains. Phosphorus is stored by the phytic acid in a number of plant issues especially a portion of eatable grains and different seeds.
The mineral phosphorus is tightly bound in a molecule with a snowflake shape. It is not available at once in human or animal abdominal. This mineral has the ability to bind immediately with another mineral like magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron and make them not available. This compound is named phytic.
For a good digestion we need enzymes but the phytic acid grabs important minerals and prevents the breakdown of the starch into sugar. Another mineral inhibited by phytates is Trypsin which digests protein.
The diet high in phytate grains has an anti-nutritional effect on our overall digestion, and as a result there is the appearance of several health diseases as well as tooth decay.”
