Building Strong Teeth Through Diet
After years of research, mainly that tooth structure and health is largely determined by diet, especially three main factors: People who eat grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes have higher rates of tooth decay, mineral deficiencies and osteoporosis. This can be a problem because this is a very common Diet . Seeds and nuts are ok in small amounts because they do contain minerals.
Macro and Trace
The two kinds of minerals are: macrominerals and trace minerals. Macro means “large” in Greek (and your body needs larger amounts of macrominerals than trace minerals). The macromineral group is made up of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur.
Calcium is a top winner
- The presence of enough minerals in the diet.
- The presence of enough fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) in the diet.
- How bio-available these nutrients are and how well the body is absorbing them. They found that this is largely influenced by the presence of Phytic Acid in the diet.
