Oral hygiene should be a top priority for everyone: not just so that those around us can enjoy our clean fresh breath, but also because optimal dental health prevents a plethora of other complicated health issues, including mouth ulcers, cardiovascular disease, and oral cancers. It is scientifically proven that oral health and gum disease have a strong link to heart disease. This is due to certain bacteria's which reside in the mouth.
According to Japanese custom, those who drink plenty of matcha green tea experience fewer cavities in their teeth and a lower incidence of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). Science now supports this claim.
School children in China who drink green tea daily enjoy much better dental health – and as matcha tea is much higher in goodness than simple green tea, it makes sense that the benefits of matcha will be exponentially higher.
How can drinking matcha green tea keep your mouth in pristine condition?
A cup of hot matcha tea, or a glass of iced matcha, is a perfect and delicious after-meal treat which is akin to brushing your teeth. It cleanses and refreshes the entire mouth, and packs a real punch in guaranteeing your overall health and wellbeing.
