Although many dieters may avoid dessert like the plague, the right dessert can help individuals better manage their weight and deliver benefits to dental health. Based on the study, yogurt blancmange (a type of yogurt based pudding) is a treat that helps finish off the supper dinner.
Yogurt is a type of fermented milk that is an ancient food that was consumed in 2000 B.C. and there are plenty of health benefits to the delight. The food is high in protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. Plus the food has been cited for boosting weight loss, treating digestive issues and reducing tooth decay in children and help adults dealing with gum disease better manage their condition.
In order to get the most powerful dental health boosting perks of the treat, the English team suggests topping off the food with walnuts and a sugar-free caramel sauce. Walnuts are an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids (a must for dental health) and combined, the ingredient are noted "...as being good for digestion, the teeth and blood glucose control," (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2160831/Healthiest-meal-After-editing-thousands-claims-scientists-serve-superdish.html)
There are countless beverage options available to consumers such as soda, beer, wine, spirits, fruit juice and energy drinks. However, in regards to delivering health benefits for teeth and general well being, water is the recommended choice.
Water is an essential life supporting liquid as too little of the stuff can negatively impact general well-being and dental health. The liquid is the main component within the human body and without enough water, individuals stand a greater chance of developing chronic bad breath, tooth erosion, dry mouth and dental caries.
Individuals should choose to wash down their super dinner with water as that beverage will help prevent dehydration, in order to maintain a healthy metabolic rate and for transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout all cells. Plus drinking water will naturally moisturize a mouth and help wash away sugar residue (a favorite treat of tooth eroding oral bacteria).
Despite how tempting the meal may be, individuals will still have to eat and drink several times a day to keep energy levels and health intact. For those moments the scientists suggest that individuals can chew on gum containing Xylintol, sip on a pure rich hot chocolate (skip the instant packs) and can make meal replacement shakes made of berries.
Eating a healthy diet is only part of the dental health equation; that behavior needs to be backed up by practicing daily oral hygiene, exercising and keeping up with regular dental visits. Individuals looking to find a dentist to help them keep on track with the latter simply need to call 1-800-DENTIST.
