Why Avocados Are A Smile-Worthy Snack

Via

It is no secret that what you eat—and when!— plays a big part in your oral health end game. While we have been known to focus on oral health food offenders, there are plenty of healthy, smile-saving options out there, too.

Avocados are a staple in many households, as this versatile fruit (yep) can be incorporated in almost any dish imaginable, from dips to green smoothies/juice. No wonder it continues to be a popular produce pick.

But why are we so enthusiastic about avocados? Well, consuming this is a great choice for your oral health! Avocados contain magnesium and Folic Acid. The former may help remineralize teeth, while the latter helps prevent gum disease. And that’s not even the extent of the avocado’s impressive nutritional power. 

Avocados are packed with antioxidant-rich phytonutrients, which are great for protecting your teeth and gums from bacterial infection.
