Have you ever wanted to whiten your teeth naturally buy you don’t know where to start? Well, Delicious and dessert-like, bananas are a fruit preferred by a vast majority of humans.
They are usually one of the first foods we are given because they digest easily and offer such optimal nutrition, but did you know that they are also excellent as a compound to use to whiten the teeth?
That’s right, the high amounts of potassium, magnesium, and manganese in the ripe banana can be applied to the teeth to remove stains and whiten them.
Below are the steps we suggest if you want to use this folksy, homemade, and proven method:
Get a banana that is just ripe (it may still have trace amounts of green at each end, but not too much).
Using a banana at this level of ripeness ensures that the peel contains optimal levels of potassium (which is the substance that really brightens the teeth).
Open the banana like a monkey does by peeling it from the bottom end and upward. Not only does this prevent all of those strange banana “threads” from appearing, but it also lets you have more control over the peel.
Take a small piece of the inside of the peel (you can use kitchen shears to cut off a manageable square) and begin gently rubbing this along your teeth.
Keep the application going for two minutes and be sure you are covering each of the teeth as much as possible with the material inside of the peel.
As you rub and pass the time, the minerals will be absorbed into the teeth and begin to promote the whitening.
Brush with your preferred toothpaste, rinse, and smile with your brighter and whiter teeth!
In addition to the minerals already listed, you will also discover that banana peel contains high amounts of calcium and vitamin D too.
These are going to strengthen the teeth and help them to really absorb the minerals better.
Remember to whiten your teeth with a banana peel. Also, eating a banana before getting to bead help you to wake up with a good breath.
