Raw Produce Keep Mouths Healthy
Fruit and Vegetables piled high
It is common knowledge that a healthy diet leads to a healthy body. Foods with high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial compounds bolster our bodies' functions. In regard to good oral health, raw produce is one of the best types of food.

Benefits of Eating Raw Produce

Firm produce, such as carrots and apples, prompt the generation of saliva, preventing dry mouth and the complications it triggers. Leafy greens are high in calcium, which fortifies enamel, and the nutrients in leafy greens combat harmful bacteria responsible for gum disease. Many fruits and vegetables have high concentrations of vitamin C, which also prevents the spread of harmful microorganisms. Fruits with malic acid can act as natural teeth-whiteners. The textures of some produce, including celery and apples, cause them to dislodge trapped food particles.
