Normally, when your oral bacteria feel as though you are about to brush or do anything to harm them, they naturally start secreting a type of film that coats your teeth.
While brushing stops the bacteria that are starting to make the film, it doesn't do anything for the bacteria that are already done. That's where seaweed comes in.
How Seaweed Helps Prevent Tooth DecayThe film created by those bacteria is difficult to penetrate. However, seaweed creates a special enzyme that has one purpose, and that is to break down that type of film.
When you consume seaweed, you can have that film broken down, and you can keep your teeth much healthier on your own. Nothing is hidden beneath the film that could be harming your teeth, because that film is not there and you can brush everything away.
Seaweed is also great for you to eat, and helps provide your body with a lot of the nutrients it needs, but struggles to get out of most common foods. If you start making seaweed a regular part of your diet, you are going to have a lot more protein, iodine, Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and iron than you would normally be eating. Plus, seaweed helps provide you with anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties, which all help your mouth.
