Testimony: Losing 10 kg in 3 Months

Ms F started taking Shuang Hor products due to her health condition. Due to irregular and late meals, she would suffer from gastric, bloated stomach and no energy most of the time. She also wanted to lose weight.

So she took 2 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein + 1 sachet Jia Hor Fiber about 30 mins before each meal - breakfast, lunch and dinner. She also took 4 sachets Lactoberry + 2 sachets Yung Kien Pollen a day. She diligently followed the routine for 3 months. She also cut down her carbo intake. She took rice during lunch only and smaller portions at night e.g. eggs and potatoes. She reduced her intake of deep fried food, processed food e.g. mee hoon and fast food. For exercise, she went hiking every 2 weeks and also played badminton and went to the gym twice a week.

She noticed that over these 3 months, she did not have gastric attacks anymore and did not have hunger pangs which made her crave for junk food. When she had hunger cravings, she would just take a sachet of Yung Kien Pollen instead. Her energy was better which gave her better stamina when hiking. She experienced frequent urination during the first month. With the higher output of liquid, her body shape became slimmer. She lost 10 kg in total over the 3 months.

----------------------------------------

Testimony: Losing 500 g in 3 Days

Ms YY takes 2 capsules Jia Hor Lingzhi + 1 sachet Yung Kien Pollen + 1 Jia Hor Soya Protein + 1 Jia Hor Fiber + 1 Vitaking at 8 pm for dinner. She also drank a lot of water but not too much as she doesn't want to wake up at night to go toilet.
She had her first meal at 11 am the next day comprising 1 litre of water and a wholemeal bread peanut butter toast + 2 hardboil eggs. She didn't feel hungry until 2-3 pm, wherein she ate chicken rice. That night, she took the same formula at 7pm.
The next morning, she "break-fast" at 10 am with a slice of toast + 2 hardboil eggs. Again, she didn't feel hungry until 2-3 pm and she ate rice then. On the 3rd night, she told the formula at 6pm.
She "break-fast" at 9 am the next day
She only took for 3 days as she didn't want to lose weight. But she noticed that after 3 days, she lose 500 g. She also noticed that she went to toilet twice in the morning and the quantity of stools was more. She didn't feel hungry and didn't crave for food. She felt so "clean" and her stomach was flatter. Her mind was clearer and she felt energetic.

-------------------------------------

Testimony: Losing 1.5 kg in 5 Days

Ms C wanted to reduce her weight due to health reasons. After attending several meetings, she heard that Jia Hor Soya Protein and Jia Hor Fiber are good for weight management. She decided to try 1 set. She uses it to replace 2 meals - her breakfast and dinner.
Each time, she would drink 2 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein + 2 sachets Jia Hor Fiber + 1 Lactoberry. After 5 days, she reduced 1.5 kg. She found that it is not so easy to regain back her weight, unlike her previous experiences with other weight loss products. Last time, she found that her weight would bounce back to even heavier after she stopped a weight loss regime. Hence she found this is a good product that she would happily share with her friends.

-----------------------------------------

Testimony: Losing 10 kg in 2 Months

Ms BT has been overweight since young. She weighed more than 40 kg when she was in Standard 4 and 68-70 kg when she was 25 years old. She was also troubled by hardened stools and piles and sometimes when she passed motion, it got very painful and it was a very traumatic experience for her.

After attending several meetings organised by Shuang Hor, she was convinced that the products are good and can help with her weight problem.

Since 2013, she started to take 2 sachets Jia Hor Soya Protein + 1 sachet Yung Kien Pollen + 1 sachet Jia Hor Fiber each time, 3 times a day.
After 2 weeks, she reduced her consumption to twice a day.
After 4 weeks, she reduced further to once a day in the morning.

In the first week, she felt full. She didn't need to take much solid food. She was happy that she no longer has hardened stools problem.

In the third week, she started to eat normal meals. But she sensed a change in her eating habits. She prefer to choose vegetables instead of rice, meat and spicy food. Besides that, she was very thirsty and drank a lot of water.

After 2 months, she lost 10 kg. Her neck can finally be seen. Her thigh, belly and arm got thinner. Her clothes size reduced from XL to M size. She looks good in sleeveless tops.
Now she still takes the formula to maintain her weight and she doesn't have piles problem anymore.

-------------------------------

Testimony: Slipped Disc and Over-Weight

Mr C, 48, said that on 9 May 2015, when he woke up, he couldn't move his body at all. He could only move his hands and legs. An ambulance sent him to the hospital. He was diagnosed with slipped disc and his body was overly exhausted.

After 2 weeks in the hospital and 2 months therapy, the doctor still encouraged him to do operation on his spine. He weighed 90 kg then. He couldn't sit or stand for long and couldn't sleep well, as he needed to sleep on his chest. He refused to undergo the operation as he knows the risk is very high.

Luckily he knows of Shuang Hor products for quite some time and has also attended many meetings, so he decided to use the products to overcome his problem.

He consumed 6 capsules Lingzhi + 15 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 2 Jia Hor Soya Protein + 1 Jia Hor Fiber + 1 Lactoberry + 1 Vitaking each time, twice a day. He took for 1 month.

Initially, when he tried to swim, he could only last for 5 minutes before he got tired. But over the month, he was able to push through to swim non-stop for 25 minutes. His energy was higher and the pain lessened.

He started to lose weight and got a good pattern of sleeping where he could sleep longer without being woken up by the pain.

After 1 month, he took 6 capsules Lingzhi + 15 capsules Yung Kien Pollen + 6 Jia Hor Soya Protein a day and 1 Vitaking every alternate day.

After 1 year, his weight went down from 90 kg to 74 kg. But he felt that he was too skinny as he is tall. So he consciously decided to increase back his weight. He did it slowly as he knows that his lower back is still an issue. He took more food, eating 6 meals a day. His weight is now 80 kg.

Last time, he wore XL size shirts with 34 inch waist pants. Now he wears L size and his waist has reduced. He ate a lot during his holidays recently, but still managed to maintain his weight. Even though it was a very long flight, his back was not in pain. He attributed it to the Shuang Hor products which he continues to take.

Bits & Bites #219 - Five Insights on Success

Sunday, 8 September 2019

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com if you're looking for a Partner to do Shuang Hor Business.

La Risata
This week, I have something short & sweet for you.. 5 Tips to achieve long-term success.

(1) Be absolutely sure of What you want in life and Why you want it. Without a distinctly defined direction, you would never be able to find the right path and you would end up nowhere. When you clearly know your Why, you will be able to surmount the challenges lying ahead.

(2) After you have identified the direction of your chosen course, do not Waver. Take whatever challenges that come as an enriching learning experience instead. The mindset of turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones is the way forward in achieving success.

(3) Learn to Appreciate life and be Grateful. Instead of treating a setback as an adversity, take it as a challenge that strengthens your tenacity. As the saying goes; No pain, No gain. By taking on the challenge, it will serve as a driving force that spurs you on, making you stronger and transforming you into a more competent leader.

(4) Absolutely Believe in yourself and your endeavour. Never ever cast any doubt about your own capability. Hold fast to the aspiration in your heart, as whatever you aspire and persevere, it can be achieved.

(5) Personal Growth is a key factor, as the more you change and learn, the more you will gain and earn. Success is not something that appears out of nowhere. Instead, it naturally finds us following the transformation in us. So it is important to engage in lifelong learning, to constantly enrich our mind and body and to forge a positive mental attitude. What you get now is not that important, it is what you eventually become that really matters.

Lastly, conduct yourself with passion in whatever you do. Even if we are not yet the best, our earnestness and goodwill will offset and cover for the shortcomings.

Bits & Bites #218 - Health: The Whole Healing Process

Sunday, 1 September 2019

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com to buy Shuang Hor products for your health.
Enfin
When your throat feels itchy or dry or painful, this shows that your immune system is compromised. If you don't address it quickly, you will surely fall sick 2-3 days later if your immune system is weak.

-------------------------------------

Lingzhi provides protection against diseases at the pre-illness stage, meaning at the stage when you are not healthy but the doctor is not able to identify a specific disease yet.

Lingzhi is a very practical way to take care of your health because it takes less than 2 minutes a day. Unlike the time you must spend going to market to choose and buy organic vegetables, as well storage, preparation and cleaning up time if you use only food to maintain your health.

Lingzhi is effective when you take the right dose over sufficient duration. Dosage is dependant on your body weight - the bigger size and heavier you are, the more you should take in order to solve the same issue. There are more and more medical results showing that Lingzhi has been scientifically tested to show that if you take at the correct amount, you will get the sufficient amount of ganoderic acid and active ingredients that can help your situation.

Lingzhi puts you through a detox or healing reaction - it is the gateway to improve your health. It is not a comfortable experience but it is a positive sign that your body is responding to Lingzhi.

----------------------------------

If you experience healing crisis, it means your body's condition is improving.
Don't just take Lingzhi. It's better to take with Yung Kien Pollen. Otherwise, your healing crisis may be more uncomfortable, making you feel worse.

Detox is a long process - first, the body has to find a way to dig out the toxins from all the nooks and corners of your body tissues and organs, this toxins then goes into the bloodstream where it needs to be eliminated from the body, then your body needs to regulate and balance itself back. At the same time, it needs to nourish itself. This completes the whole healing crisis process.

A lot of energy is needed as there are many little processes to do. Your body needs a lot of different types of nutrients along the way. But we don't know when and how much and what types of nutrients the body needs. That's where Pollen comes in. When you take Yung Kien Pollen, you provide a buffet of over 200 types of natural micro-nutrients for your body to pick and choose what it needs.
That's why when we take Pollen together with Lingzhi, the healing crisis is smoother. Because the body can take whatever nutrients it needs to complete the process.

----------------------------------

Yung Kien Pollen is "cheap".
There are 2 ways to look at this word.
(1) price
(2) damage to the body
Some food are cheap to eat (e.g. fries) but cause a lot of damage to the body.
But nobody overdoses on Yung Kien Pollen. Any excess are naturally eliminated. That's why it is cheap for the body to maintain, it doesn't take away the energy the body needs, which would make you feel lethargic.
In other words, if you want to have good value, take Lingzhi together with Pollen.

--------------------------------------

Our body changes everyday. Sometimes, we are more stressed or are in a bad mood, we need to up our dosage of Lingzhi to give us the extra boost. If you over-work or don't sleep well that particular night, take more Lingzhi. If you feel refreshed or after a good workout, take less. This is how you use Lingzhi. You are the best person to know how much Lingzhi and Pollen to take. Monitor yourself. If you take at the right dose, you delay and reduce the risk of suffering any major disease. Not because you are particularly healthy, but because Lingzhi and Pollen help to mitigate.
That's the ultimate role of healthfood products - to help us maintain our health for a longer time.

4 Criteria on How to Select Quality Health Products

Sunday, 25 August 2019


Nowadays many people know about the importance of health products. We include supplements as part of their daily habit. Unfortunately, we do not know how to choose good quality supplements and end up burdening our liver and kidney from long-term consumption of the wrong stuff.

In this article, I will share with you 4 criteria on how to identify the characteristics of Quality supplements. These are the yardsticks you must always have in mind when you shop for health products. Having this knowledge will help you differentiate quality products from run-of-the-mill ones in the market.

The selection criteria for good health products are as follows:

1. Natural v. Synthetic

The food that enters our mouth will be digested, absorbed and utilised by the body, and then the wastes are eliminated. If the food is natural, whatever unwanted residues can be fully and easily eliminated. On the other hand, if the food, drugs or supplements is synthetic in nature, which means they have chemicals and colouring, our body does not have the ability to eliminate it. It becomes toxins inside the body. An easy way to identify is by looking at a person's complexion - a dull complexion can mean there's a lot of toxins in the body.

There are 2 categories of food:

(a) Food that "caters to the Tongue" (meaning it's eaten mainly for the delicious taste) is usually unhealthy for the body in the long-term.

According to TCM theory, the flavour of the food we crave for is influenced by the health of the 5 key body organs. The more unhealthy is the organ, the more we crave food of that particular flavour:
Heart = Bitter
Lungs = Spicy
Spleen = Sweet
Liver = Sour
Kidney = Salty

(b) Food that nourishes the body cells

People may be obese but their cells can still be hungry, because the cells don't get the nutrients they need. For instance, diabetic patients. The food they eat cannot be converted and thus cannot reach the body cells, resulting in the feeling of lethargy.

Carbo is converted to glucose, which enters RBC (with the help of insulin), and the RBC circulates and transports the nutrients to the cells of all the body organs for their use.
Unutilised glucose are stored in the liver in the form of glycogen. In times of depletion of energy, glycogen will be released and converted back to glucose to supply the body with energy. Excess glycogen (which are unutilised in the long-term or if the liver is unable to convert back) are turned into fats and fatty acid. Thus these people become fatter and fatter.

The GI (Glycemic Index) is a relative ranking of carbohydrate in food according to how quickly these food cause an increase in blood glucose level. Good quality fiber can delay / slow down conversion of carbo to glucose (not merely prevent constipation). That's how it can help people control blood sugar level. Fiber also help reduce weight as it controls the absorption of excess glucose into the body system.

2. Safety

Many products may be effective, but they are not safe.
By Safety, it means the food can be taken for Long-term and in Large Quantity. It does not burden the body.

There are 4 categories of food when we analyse their safety level:

(a) Inferior
These are drugs which can be taken only if one is sick. If one is healthy, they should never be taken. They are used for symptomatic treatment e.g. if you don't have cancer, you cannot go for chemo; if you don't have headache, you won't take aspirin. Therefore, it is very specific and taken to address specific diseases.

(b) Medium
This includes supplements, which one takes for certain purpose to complement the missing nutrients and maintain one's health. But they are not functional food and cannot be used to treat diseases.
E.g. if you have cancer or lupus, the vitamins and minerals do not have the ability to cure you. If you want to fly, you have to take the plane; because even the fastest car does not have the ability to fly. A car cannot replace a plane.

E.g. high dose of vitamin C may have anti-cancer ability. But it may not be safe or one cannot physically eat so many oranges a day. Many oranges are needed to produce each tablet of vitamin C. Hence if the product is cheap, it cannot be 100% natural. In fact, most of these vitamins are synthetically manufactured, hence taking at high dose would harm the kidney and liver in the long-term.

(c) Superior
(i) It has an overall normalising effect and can be taken to regulate the body as a whole.
(ii) Non-specific - not for a particular problem / body organ. It can be taken even if you don't have any health problem. It can be taken by children and the elderly.
(iii) Functional - can boost up the immune system, enhance the endocrine system etc.

In this world, there are about 7-8 types of Chinese herbs in this category including ho sau wu, ginseng, tong chong sia chau and phu ling. But they are not safe to be taken in large quantity e.g. overdose of ginseng may cause blood pressure to shoot up.

(d) Supreme
Supreme herbs have all the characteristics of the superior herbs but can be taken in large quantity over long-term. Lingzhi is the only herb that falls into this category.

Shuang Hor Lingzhi is extremely safe, so much so that you can take up to 8 bottles of Yung Kien Ganoderma a day. In fact, practically all the Shuang Hor products sold in Malaysia can be safely consumed at high dosage.


3. Easily Absorbed

If whatever you eat cannot be easily absorbed, your body cannot utilise it. It doesn't benefit your body. A simple test to see how good is your body's absorption ability is by looking at the condition of your stools. If the absorption ability is bad, your stools would look loose and watery, not in banana shape. They would also be sticky. There may be indigested food amongst the stools.

For instance, one of the reasons some people are very skinny is that the small intestines are not able to absorb the food they eat. According to TCM theory, people with weak small intestines will find the area at the side of their palms painful when massaged. As the small intestines is also linked to the heart and shoulder meridian points, such people will usually have shoulder ache and weaker heart too.

All Shuang Hor products are easily absorbed by the body, including Jia Hor Soya Protein.

4. Effective

(a) Direct effect e.g. people with high blood pressure or diabetes can see direct effect on their readings when they take Shuang Hor Lingzhi.

(b) Multi-function e.g. you may decide to take Lingzhi to address your cholesterol problem, but you will find that your blood pressure and blood sugar are also regulated eventually.

Conclusion

These are the 4 criteria of good health products.

Do they make sense to you?
If Yes, then you must seriously analyse if what you are taking now fulfil these 4 criteria. Only consume them if you can satisfy yourself that they do. If they don't, you have to be careful, as these are things you put into your mouth everyday for long-term.

In other words, if you believe in health products, and you want your family to take them for long-term, please take a look at these criteria to equip yourself with the knowledge to choose good quality ones.

I have done my research and find that Shuang Hor products satisfy all the 4 criteria. That's why I have peace of mind to take them over the last 10 years.

Bits & Bites #217 - Health: Qi Gong, Calcitriol, Painkiller, Cholesterol and Gout

Sunday, 18 August 2019

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com to buy Shuang Hor products for your health.


Babe
Qi gong exercise is good because it improves blood circulation and makes the body warmer. However, qi gong practitioners can fall sick if the toxins are stuck inside when the body is unable to push it out. Cholesterol or thrombi are inside the blood vessels and cannot be easily expelled if the body is weak. The skin pores may not be open so it is not easy to sweat it out. The toxins will continue to circulate inside the body. As such, it is advisable for qi gong practitioners to take Lingzhi at the same time because Lingzhi is the catalyst that helps our body purge out the toxins.

-------------------------------------

Vitamin D is needed to help our body absorb calcium. This is how it works:
Sunlight is needed to synthesise vitamin D. However, it is in non-active form. Our liver and kidney turns it into an active form. This active form of vitamin D is called Calcitriol, which is the form that can help with the absorption of calcium.
Increasing calcium level in the body is important to prevent osteoporosis and keeps the bones from becoming brittle. If it cannot be absorbed, then the calcium turns into stones, causing harm to the kidney.

-------------------------------------

When you are sick or in pain, you take antibiotics or painkiller drugs. You then feel better or you don't feel anymore pain. So you start to believe in these drugs. How many of you bother to find out what are the names of the drugs, how they work and what are the side effects? When you don't feel any pain, it doesn't mean the inflammation is not there anymore. Most of us only ask the doctor how many times to take in a day and whether to consume before or after meals. We are ignorant of the long-term harm to our liver and kidney that medicines will cause.

------------------------------------

When your HDL cholesterol level is high, it is not necessarily a bad sign.
It means your blood vessels are clean, and
- It is easier for the blood to carry oxygen and nutrients to all the body organs.
- When the organs are healthy, they can fully absorb all the nutrients.
- The kidneys don't have to work so hard to filter out the waste materials.
- Your blood pressure is lower.
- You will have a longer life.

-------------------------------------

What do you do if you have Gout?
Firstly, stop your consumption of all the culprits like alcohol, peanuts, beans, tomato, brinjal and long beans.
Take Lingzhi together with Luchun Tea as the tea can help bring out the uric acid which is causing the joint pain. Complement with Vitaking as it works very well to calm down the inflammation. Mixing with warm water not only tastes good but is effective.

Multi-vitamins and Diabetes

Sunday, 11 August 2019

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com if you are looking for something to help with your diabetic condition.

Goh Tong Jaya
Today I want to share with you a snippet of an article I read. It says that currently the percentage of diabetic patients in Malaysia is the highest across Asia and one of the highest in the entire world. Are you part of that frightening statistic?

We have so much good food here and yet we still lack the vitamins and minerals to protect ourselves against this chronic disease. 

Let's look at what are the key nutrients which are deficient in diabetic patients

1) Vitamin B1 - helps produce energy and metabolise carbohydrates (which are converted into glucose).

2) Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) - helps carbohydrate metabolism.

3) Vitamin B6 - protects against development of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

4) Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) - a key component of carbohydrate metabolism.

5) Vitamin C - deficiency leads to sorbitol (sugar alcohol commonly used as sugar substitute) accumulation in red blood cells and certain types of end-organ damage.

6) Vitamin E and selenium - essential antioxidants that prevent free radical damage and are also involved in glucose balance.

7) Zinc - deficiency may lead to significantly higher glucose levels and lower insulin levels.

8) Manganese - cofactor for certain key enzymes involved in the metabolism of sugar.

9) Alpha lipoid acid - an antioxidant involved in turning glucose into energy and improves glucose uptake by muscle. It also neutralises free radicals, promotes removal of glucose from the blood and helps prevent diabetic complications.

10) Vanadium - increase insulin sensitivity.

11) Chromium - boosts insulin sensitivity by increasing the amount and activity of insulin receptors on cells for greater efficiency of glucose uptake. It helps control weight gain and fat accumulation and decrease the risk of heart disease and stroke.

12) Biotin - stabilise blood sugar level and enhance insulin sensitivity.

13) Biotin-independent enzymes acetyl Co A carboxylase and pyruvate carboxylase - also vital for people with blood sugar disorders.

(Source: Of multivitamins and managing blood glucose, Fit for Life, 11 Nov 2018)

So many! It is a rather tall order to expect a diabetic to get all these nutrients from his meals every day. So supplementation is the way to go. However, do you know of a natural supplement that contains all these nutrients without having to line up a dozen bottles everyday?


Take a look at my solution - Yung Kien Pollen. It contains 200 types of nutrients and covers substantially all that are deficient in a diabetic person from the list above.

Ok. You may say you are already taking pollen. But do you know that not all pollen products are the same?

Do you know that the manufacturing process is very important to ensure the nutrients remain intact while destroying only the bacteria? 

How do you know your pollen product is free from artificial additives and preservatives?

You don't want to take pollen that smells fishy or tastes sandy right?

Yung Kien Pollen ticks all the boxes. It looks good, smells fragrant, tastes delicious and is packed full of benefits. It can be safely consumed by everyone.

You can have peace of mind to take it everyday to improve your blood sugar control.

Guest Blog: 10 Foods to Naturally Improve Oral Health

Sunday, 4 August 2019



We all know that eating a balanced diet is the key to good health, but what you eat can also contribute to your oral health, and the best way to naturally improve the health of your teeth and gums is by adding a few of these foods to your diet.

1. Dairy

Poor tooth mineralisation leads to tooth decay; however, adequate consumption of dairy products boosts your oral health with calcium. This important mineral helps to strengthen and remineralise teeth to protect their structure.

Different types of dairy products also have other benefits for your oral health. Cheese provides calcium and protein, and studies have shown that it also raises the pH level inside your mouth, which helps to prevent tooth decay.

Yogurt contains high levels of calcium and protein but also contains probiotics, which can reduce the level of harmful bacteria in your mouth. However, consume yogurt without additives or sugar to gain the most benefits.

2. Apples

Apples have a high concentration of water, which stimulates the production of saliva helping to wash away any harmful bacteria remaining on your teeth after meals. Apples are also high in fiber, which promotes gum health by stimulating blood flow, while the mild acidic content acts as an astringent to make your smile brighter. To gain the biggest benefits, it is best to consume the apples unpeeled as the skin contains the majority of the nutrients and fiber.

3. Leafy Greens

Leafy green vegetables are nutrient dense with antioxidants and vitamins, including moderate levels of calcium. Green vegetables contain high levels of folic acid essential for cell renewal to protect your gums. They are also effective at moderating the pH level of your mouth to reduce acid wear.

4. Coconut

Coconut, in particular, studies on coconut oil have shown it to be an effective way of killing bacteria and cleaning your teeth by a process known as “oil pulling”. Coconut oil contains a medium chain fatty acid called lauric acid. When this fatty acid is broken down by the body, it removes harmful pathogens and bacteria, including those responsible for bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay. Talk to your local dental clinic about how you can include oil pulling in your daily oral care regime.

5. Nuts

Nuts are high in both calcium and phosphorus, which are essential for remineralising teeth after acid wear. They are also high in magnesium, which helps to regulate the hormones that control bone health. Raw, unsalted nuts offer the high concentrations of health-boosting minerals, but low-sugar and low-sodium nut butter can also be an effective way to incorporate nuts into your diet.

6. Avocado

Avocados are not only good for your overall health; they also have specific benefits for your teeth and gums. With both a high calcium and folic acid content, avocados can help to reduce inflammation in the body and preventing bleeding gum and gingivitis. Recently, a study from Ohio State University has shown that phytochemicals present in avocados are effective at reducing pre-cancerous oral cells.

7. Garlic

Garlic may be smelly, but it contains allicin which has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that help it to reestablish a balance of good and bad bacteria in the mouth. This helps to reduce the risk of gum disease and eliminate bad breath. To reap the benefits of garlic you don’t need to eat it raw; you can take garlic capsules to minimise the garlic smell or add it to your cooking.

8. Sauerkraut

This fermented cabbage dish has more than just a great tangy taste. The probiotics in sauerkraut are highly effective at maintaining balance in your mouth’s microbiome, which protects against bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.

9. Oranges

Though oranges do have a moderate acid content, the nutrients and benefits of eating oranges for your oral health far outweigh the potential side effects. Oranges are one of the best sources of vitamin C, an essential vitamin used by the body for repairing tissues, bones and teeth. To avoid softening tooth enamel when eating acidic fruits, try eating cheese or dairy afterwards to raise the pH level of your mouth.

10. Fish

Eating fish as part of your regular diet is a great way to keep your whole body healthy. However, it can also have a significant positive impact on your oral health. Eating fish which contain omega-3 fatty acids has been linked with lower instances of gum disease due to its anti-inflammatory effects. Some fish high in omega-3 fatty acids include sardines, salmon, and anchovies.

Final Thoughts

Keep your smile bright and healthy by including some of these important foods in your diet. For further information about how to improve your oral health, make an appointment with your dentist.
