Often, our dentist tells us to stay away from coffee, tea and sodas as they break down the protective enamel on our teeth, contributing to tooth decay. However, recent studies have shown that drinking nettle tea may be the exception to the rule.
Nettle tea is rich in calcium and Vitamins A and C, all essential in supporting healthy gums and teeth. It, like all teas, also contains polyphenols, which fight plaque causing bacteria.
And even if nettle tea is a bit too bitter for you, you do not have to miss out on the benefits! The leaves used to brew the tea can be removed from the water and rubbed on sore and irritated gums. The anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties of this super leaf help treat gingivitis and will give you some much needed relief!
