10 Easy Ways To Have White Teeth

The modern society that we live in is obsessed with appearance and so people have become more concerned about how other people see them. And when it comes to teeth…some people have yellow teeth stained from smoking or taking too much coffee and other beverages, which is not justice to their natural white teeth. Your well being and health status is reflected by your smile and teeth have a key role in a good, healthy and hearty smile. Hence it is very important to have a set of clean white teeth. So here are a few natural tips to keep your teeth shining white making your smile a million dollar one.


1. Brushing The Teeth:

The most common and natural way to teeth maintenance is brushing your teeth regularly especially after eating or drinking. We all know this yet 90% of us cast a blind eye to this helpful fact. Brushing your teeth after eating takes away food particles and other bad acidic remnants that are not good for the teeth.


2. Eat  More Strawberries:

Now to me, this sounds like a really good tip since strawberries are pretty sweet and here is the thing… they also help give your teeth a cleaner, polished look.

Strawberries contain an enzyme called malic acid that works the magic on your teeth. Mix the strawberries with baking powder and apply on your teeth. Give it a few months and note the big difference.

3. Charcoal:

Yes… Charcoal works wonders and in countries like India it is still broadly used to clean teeth. The activated carbon in charcoal is known to absorb impurities from water. It is also known as a cleansing agent if one has cracks on the tooth surface.


4. Lemon Juice:

Mix a teaspoon of lemon juice with a pinch of salt or a little baking soda. Rub this mixture on your teeth. You can also eat lemons by themselves if you can tolerate it. Too much lemon juice on the teeth can cause sensitivity because of its acidic properties so remember to moderate the use.


5. Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple Cider Vinegar is the next solution on my list, it’s a very effective way to clean your teeth and most people comment that after Apple Cider has worked its magic one looks like he or she had their teeth professionally cleaned. However, it is acidic and may weaken the enamel so avoid too much use of it.

6. A Carrot A Day:

A Carrot a day will take you a long way. Yes, some of you may argue that carrots are best known for eye development but carrots also keep away discolored teeth. The fibrous nature of the carrot will help to clean the tooth surface and prevent plaque accumulation. A very good advantage of carrots is that unlike citrus fruits or vinegar it does not have any acidic properties and therefore you can eat as much as you want and note the difference after a considerable amount of time.


7. Fibrous Foods:

Adding more fibrous foods to your diet is very important. Do away with all the sugary foods and beverages like coffee and avoiding smoking too.  The fibers in the diet act as natural brushes which clean the surface of the tooth with abrasive surfaces and prevent any accumulation of food or plaque.


8. Dark Chocolate:


In addition to this, we have dark chocolate. Yes! Chocolate lovers am sure are very keen on this. Well as much as we have repeatedly been told to stay away from sweet things, dark chocolate is actually beneficial. So this is how it works; keeping your tooth enamel strong can help prevent staining and might also encourage whitening as well.

Dark chocolate contains a compound that helps strengthen your tooth enamel so that high-staining foods are not as effective at discoloration. This substance, called theobromine, hardens the surface of your teeth, which helps keep them whiter.


9. Dairy Products:

Eating dairy products like yogurt, milk and cheese. They are known to prevent tooth decay which usually leads to discoloration of the teeth. Furthermore, hard cheese like cheddar is known to whiten the teeth and remove food particles.


10. Sugarless Gum:

Sugarless gum is also known to make the teeth whiter especially that made with Xylitol.  Research indicates that it reduces the amount of bacteria in the mouth. It also helps to buffer the teeth against the effect of acid. Most sugarless gums and sugarless candies increase the flow of saliva, which helps to protect your teeth against bacteria.

6 Easy Ways to burn Your Belly Fat Fast

One of the most common questions I get is how to lose belly fat. Belly fat is actually the most dangerous type of fat – besides aesthetics, large waist lines are indicators of –disease-disease-disease.

It takes more than just crunches! We start to gain weight in our midsection when our cortisol levels spike. Stress is one of the primary culprits for high levels of cortisol secretion. When this happens cortisol breaks downs lean muscle (the type of tissue that burns calories most efficiently) and also holds on to fat storage in the abdominal region. That stress can even get WORSE with bad dieting; studies show that the stress caused by dieting can increase cortisol levels, making no change in belly fat even with calorie restriction. So how do you shape up? Incorporate these 6 things below and you will be on your way to a flatter belly in no time flat!




1. Sleep

If you want to work late at night, think again. When your biorhythms are off, you end up eating more. When you’re tired you produce more ghrelin, which triggers cravings for sugar and other fat-building foods. Losing sleep can also alter your hormone production, affecting your cortisol levels that cause insulin sensitivity, prime reasons for belly fat! Getting about 7 hours of sleep a night is one of the best things you can do for your body shaping goals.

2. Short bursts of exercises
1000 crunches a night may get you strong abdominal muscles, but with a full layer of fat on top, you will not get the results you really want. Instead of all those crunches, do exercises that engage multiple muscle groups and work your cardiovascular system. Try planking, where you hold yourself in a push-up position, resting your forearms on the ground. Try 3 or 4 sets of holding for 30 seconds each. Getting up and moving throughout the day by going for walks will also help.

3. Sugar is your Enemy
Fighting belly fat is 80% healthy diet. Reduce calories by filling yourself up with protein, vegetables, whole grains, and replacing bad habit snacks with good ones. For example, if you have a sugar craving, replace your calorie laden latte with a Muscle Milk lite, one of my favorites, because it has zero sugar and a ton of protein that will satiate while also torching my sugar craving! Another great trick is a sprinkle of cinnamon in your morning coffee or oatmeal- the spice has been shown to help stabilize blood sugar. It also slows the rate at which food exits the stomach, which helps you feel fuller longer.

4. Vitamin C
When you’re under extreme stress, you secret more cortisol hormone. Vitamin C helps balance the cortisol spikes that happen to you under this stress. Besides being a good way to counteract a cold, Vitamin C is also essential for making carnitine, a compound used by the body to turn fat into fuel, making this vitamin your fat burning friend.

If you’re going through an emotional crisis, stress from work, or a bad eating splurge, increase your vitamin C – it’ll help counteract the negative side effects. Try bell peppers, kale or kiwi fruits. These have even more Vitamin C than the famous Orange!

5. Eat Fat
you heard me! It takes fat to burn fat. Like I said above, it’s sugar that gets you fat, not fat. Good fats include foods rich in Omega 3′s, like salmon, avocados & walnuts. These foods are full of nutrients that help keep you satiated throughout the day.

6. Slowing down your breath
This is a very simple method that you can use even when you’re in the midst of doing something else. Whenever you notice you’re feeling tense and uptight check and see how you’re breathing. Most people under stress either alternate holding their breath with short breaths, or take rapid shallow breaths. After you become aware of your own breathing, consciously relax your belly and slow down the breathing. This works best if you focus on slowing down the exhalation rather than your inhalation. With each exhalation you can say to yourself “slow down”. That is all there is to it- Simple but surprisingly effective
