If you are a chocolate lover, the following news will amaze you! Researchers at Tulane University have found a powerful extract in the cocoa powder, which may be more successful for preventing cavities than fluoride. 

In fact, the news is beneficial for anyone, due to the fact that fluoride has been declared as a risky substance in the last couple of years.

When compared to one another, research showed that by using cocoa powder to the enamel surface of their teeth, people had “100 % dental occlusion”, and their teeth began to revitalize and recover.  

In an official statement these researchers elaborated: 

“The comparison to toothpastes containing fluoride – one as much as 5,000 ppm [parts per million] – validates what our research has shown all along: 

that Rennou [the cocoa extract] … is more effective and safer than fluoride, which can be toxic if ingested.”

So here is a recipe on how to make chocolate toothpaste at home:


-2 tablespoons baking soda

-4 tablespoons coconut oil

-6 drops clove essential oil (optional)

-2 teaspoons organic cocoa powder


Mix all ingredients and blend them until the mixture thickens. 

By using a scoop, place the paste onto the brush. 

Place the paste in an air tight container since baking soda can absorb smells. 

By putting the paste into a toothpaste tube you can also make it squeezable.
