Forget 4-leaf clovers. Here are 4 shamrockin’ selections guaranteed to bring you lots o’ luck in the health department:
There’s a reason most dental products are mint-flavored. Besides their fresh taste, mint leaves clean your tongue and teeth by blocking harmful bacteria growth. If you’re not partial to leaf chewing, refresh your dental gear with a minty paste and pack of floss.
2. Green Exercise
The top o’ the morning doesn’t seem so dark anymore. Spring is only a few days away! Get outside for a jog and enjoy the budding greenery. Your body, mouth, and mood will thank you.
3. Green Tea
This steamy beverage is a smile superstar. Green tea contains bacteria-fighting polyphenols. These substances help prevent tooth-attacking acids. Extra luck to those who brew their tea with fluoridated water.
4. Leafy Greens
Believe it or not, leafy vegetables are luckier than leafy clovers. These veggies promote good digestion and a healthy mouth. For example, green goodies like spinach and kale require a lot of chewing. Chewing increases saliva flow, which is wonderful (natural) way to remove plaque.
