petai and white teeth :3

Assalamu'alaikum readers :D 

Alhamdulillah i just finish my dinner :) my aunt cook sayur petai @ stink broad bean. bau lerrrr >.< however, i can't deny the taste is good. kwang3 :p maybe pasal my aunt letak belacan. kekeke.

i ate sikit saja. still cannot tahan the smell. habis makan terus berus my less-white teeth. muahaha :p

alright, in this entry i am gonna blog about 1) petai health benefits and 2) how to get that white gleaming teeth back :D

okie dokie let's check out what are the goodness we can find in petai:
  • its protein content is four times than apple.
  • its phosphorous content is three times than apple.
  • its carbohydrates content is twice than apple.
  • its vitamin A content is five times than apple.
  • its iron content is five times than apple.
  • its high iron level stimulates the production of hemoglobin in your blood.
  • its high fiber content helps to restore bowel action.
  • its high potassium content yet low in salt helps to lower high blood pressure.
  • its tryptophan content helps to make you relax and you will feel happier.
  • its botanical antacid content helps to heal heartburn pain.

alright, next i wanna share with you guys how to whithen your teeth :) 
  • Try at-home whitening strips.(Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips) For the best results, dentists recommend using them at least six hours after brushing and drying your teeth with a tissue before applying the strips.
  • Dip a washcloth in hydrogen-peroxide. Then, rub your teeth with it. The peroxide lightens stains; the nubbiness of the cloth further helps scrub them away.
  • Switch to a whitening toothpaste. They're not strong enough to dramatically whiten discolored teeth on their own, but they can help get rid of new stains by scrubbing them away with a mild abrasive called silica.
  • Wear blue-based colors and gloss. Cherry red, wine, and berry colors make teeth look whiter. (Or choose a product like Clinique For A Brighter Smile - the colors all have blue undertones.) And steer clear of matte lipsticks which can make teeth look dingy.
  • Brush after every meal. Sounds obvious, but don't forget, it makes a big difference. Keep a mini disposable brush, like Colgate Wisps, in your purse for on-the-go cleaning.

the next article below i copy&paste from health.com in which it shares the way how to whiten your teeth naturally :)

The secret to this inexpensive home whitening method is malic acid, which acts as an astringent to remove surface discoloration. Combined with baking soda, strawberries become a natural tooth-cleanser, buffing away stains from wine, coffee, and dark sodas. While it’s no replacement for a bleaching treatment at your dentist’s office, “this is a fast, cheap way to brighten your smile,” says Adina Carrel, DMD, a dentist in private practice at Manhattan Dental Arts in New York. “Be careful not to use this too often, though, as the acid could damage the enamel on your teeth.”

Directions: Crush the strawberry to a pulp, then mix with the baking soda until blended. Use a soft toothbrush to spread the mixture onto your teeth. Leave on for 5 minutes, then brush thoroughly with toothpaste to remove the berry–baking soda mix. Rinse. (A little floss will help get rid of any strawberry seeds.) Carrel says you can apply once a week.


happy reading :) psst sharing is caring *wink* hehehe.
