Floss, Brush, and Drink Some Bigelow Green Tea!
Wednesday, 10 August 2011 by Heather
At Bigelow Tea we welcome any tips on how to sustain better health, and when it comes to a beautiful smile … we’re all ears! Since we love to smile (the bigger, the better!) we were thrilled to learn of a study that indicates that the catechins found in green tea may have anti-inflammatory properties, which help to maintain healthy gums!
A beautiful smile goes a long way. But if your gums need a little TLC, smiling can be problematic. Gum disease is a common issue, whether it’s a case of mild gingivitis or more worrisome periodontitis. It’s a well-known fact that we should brush and floss regularly—when we wake up, after meals, and before we go to sleep—because oral health has a direct impact on overall physical health. It’s like a domino effect to the heart, blood circulation and, even, the brain. So keep brushing, flossing … and drinking that green tea!
“A smile is nature’s best antidote for discouragement.
It brings rest to the weary,
sunshine to those who are frowning,
and hope to those who are hopeless and defeated.
A smile is so valuable
that it can’t be bought, begged, borrowed, or taken away against your will.
You have to be willing to give a smile away
before it can do anyone else any good.”
