Our mouth is home to enumerable bacteria and germs such as; Porphyromonas gingivalis, Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, and Tannerella forsythia. YUCK!
We all know it is essential to take proper care of our teeth and gums if we want a healthy mouth. And scientists are always at work studying new and better ways to improve our oral hygiene. For example, a 2021 study demonstrated that “Seabuckthorn pulp extract shows good inhibitory effect on the major periodontal pathogens and hence is promising in the field of periodontics.” another study tested the “Benefits of sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) pulp oil-based mouthwash on oral health.”
If you want to make your sea buckthorn pulp oil, buying organic dried sea buckthorn berries online is possible. Or you can take the direct route and use the purest-grade sea buckthorn oil you can find.
A use case study on the benefits of sea buckthorn oil mouthwash.
The medicinal properties of sea buckthorn are science-backed. When it comes to taking care of your gums, this tiny orange berry helps to improve the health of gastric mucous membranes due to the presence of omega-7 fatty acids. Believe it or not, omega-7 helps strengthen saliva production, maintaining oral health. When our saliva production is plentiful, we can experience better digestion and stronger teeth. An abundance of Omega fatty acids 3, 6, 7 & 9 are all found in Seaberries’ pulp and seed oils.
Also, tooth enamel gets washed away due to the acids released from our foods. This oral condition further leads to irritation in the gums and can aggravate conditions like “Halitosis” & “Dry Mouth.” When your mouth produces saliva, this flushes out all the acidic residue in the mouth, keeping the gums healthy and problem free.
The study mentioned above tested sea buckthorn pulp oil’s antimicrobial and anti-biofilm capacities in mouthwash form. Its effectiveness was evaluated against Streptococcus gordonii, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Actinomyces viscosus and Candida albicans, according to the European Norms and the Biofilm Ring Test®, respectively—these activities when compared with those of chlorhexidine and herbal mouthwashes.
The outcome? Sea buckthorn mouthwash showed anti-biofilm activities against select single and multiple oral bacterial species.
This sample mouthwash is a suitable alternative as a preventive agent for periodontal inflammation and a replacement for synthetic mouthwashes, which have side effects on teeth, gums and mucous membranes.
