We’re a caffeine-fueled generation, but all that coffee and tea can take a toll on our teeth. There are plenty of over-the-counter products that promise a whiter smile but yield depressing results, and the only alternative are expensive dental procedures most of us don’t have the budget for. Well, here’s a new method to try out. This man took one common household product to whiten his smile, and now his teeth are pearly white!
YouTube channel FitLifeTV tackled the common problem of cheap teeth whitening in a recent video. He proposed using turmeric instead of wasting your money on expensive whitening kits from the store. If you aren’t aware, turmeric is a bright yellow spice that belongs to the ginger family. It is popular in many Asian recipes and was formerly used as a fabric dye.
In the video, the host mixes 2 capsules of turmeric, 1 tbsp of coconut oil and about a teaspoon of peppermint oil to create a whitening paste that you can whip up yourself in under two minutes. But this isn’t your typical DIY teeth whitening remedy that takes weeks for results to be visible. The FitLifeTV host goes on to demonstrate the power of his invention, whitening his teeth on camera! Over the course of the four-minutes-and-twenty-nine-seconds-long footage, the host whips up his concoction and brushes his teeth with the freshly made paste.
So if you’ve been trying to find a way to brighten your smile, head over to your supermarket’s spice section and grab some turmeric!
