Miswak - The Toothbrush Tree

Oral health is vital for every human being on the planet including my self so the search for great oral health has always been present and continuous for me. You would wonder if nature has provided for us with food and water then is there anything out there for oral health right?

Let me introduce you to Miswak a traditional chewing stick made from the roots, twigs, and stem of Salvadora persica. This twig pencil-sized stick wonder has been used by many civilisations of the world to aid in oral health. It is still being used in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central and Southeast Asia and I hope one day the entire world can reap its benefits.

Several scientific studies have demonstrated that the Salvadora persica possesses antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-cariogenic, and anti-plaque properties due to its composition of

  • Alkaloids—Salvadorine, Trimethylamine— (antibacterial effect)

  • Essential oils—For mild taste and fragrance, stimulate the production of saliva and help relieve flatulence.

  • Silica—natural abrasive that removes stains

  • Resins—Form a protective layer over the enamel to prevent the formation of caries.

  • Calcium, Chlorides, Fluoride that helps in remineralising the tooth structure.

  • Tannins—Functions as a natural astringent, stimulate saliva production

  • Saponins, Flavonoids, and Sterols in small amounts.

The combination of active ingredients listed above with the mechanical movements like a toothbrush makes it a powerhouse for dental care.

So if you are looking to

  • Fight tooth decay and Cavities

  • Reduce Plaque.

  • Eliminate bad bacteria.

  • Protect and strengthen the gums.

  • See what nature has provided for us.

  • Use a toothbrush that doesn't need toothpaste or water

  • To add a tool to your dental hygiene system.

Then I believe purchasing a Miswak stick from us would be ideal for you.
