Chocolate is a panaceum!

Do you know any tested ways to get plenty of energy and cheer yourselves up? We recommend good chocolate!


 

It is commonly known that sweets cause tooth decay. But, it does not apply to dark chocolate! Its asset is that it contains natural cocoa ingredients, i.e. theobromine, which strengthens the enamel, and tannin, which prevents bacteria from sticking to tooth surface.

 

Additionally, the more dark cocoa, the more antioxidants fighting free radicals in the organism. Antioxidants in chocolate belonging to two groups, namely: polyphenols and flavonoids, are particularly important for the mouth cavity. The former neutralise microbes contributing to halitosis, and also prevent gum infections, whilst the latter stop the formation of acids dangerous to teeth.

Bitter chocolate is the healthiest option as it contains least sugar and most cocoa. Moreover, thanks to adding nut or fruit, it will supply the organism with more vegetable fats and antoxidants, both of which are good for our health.

 

Chocolate contains microelements important for our health such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc and copper, and also vitamins: B6, B2, A, E, B3, B12. Phenethylamine contained in cholocate stimulutes the production of endorfins, colloquially referred to as 'hormones of happiness', which cheers us up and mitigates the negative effect of stress.

 

So… enjoy your chocolate!

 

And remember that the best protection against tooth decay is the proper hygiene of the mouth cavity and regular checkups at a stomatologist.


Toothbrushes constitute a big issue. Which one is the best, and why? Opinions differ. Nonetheless, we cannot fail to notice that the market novelty - sonic toothbrushes, wins the hearts of thousands of Poles. What is so special about them and why do they constitute an increasingly popular alternative to both traditional and electronic toothbrushes? Let's find out.

It moves at the speed of light. Well, almost ;)

A sonic toothbrush generates much faster movements - approx. 30 to 40,000 sweeping movements compared to 7-8,000 oscillation movements of a typical electric toothbrush. Therefore, thanks to using a sonic toothbrush cleaning your teeth as well as interdental spaces becomes much more accurate. This is mainly due to the differences in the device’s mode of action.

It reaches places that even light fails to reach...
A good sonic toothbrush has a bristle offset of 6mm, which gives a greater possibility of cleaning interdental and periodontal spaces at the gum line. We all know that oral care includes not only brushing but also taking care of the gums, tongue and the insides of cheeks. Thus, we look for toothbrushes which include rubber tips for cleaning the tongue.

All, both big and small, can use a sonic toothbrush too!
Anyone can use a sonic toothbrush. Even children over one year of age. Toothbrushes for children perform 16,000 sonic movements, which is safe for their teeth. In general, there are no contraindications for a good toothbrush has a special program that allows sensitive gums to get used to these vibrations. A toothbrush working in this mode will gradually increase the frequency of vibrations from the very first use.

And for those who love fashion, I have great news - a sonic toothbrush can have an extremely designer look!
