Can Oil Pulling Cure Your Hangover?
Had a few too many margaritas last night? Wake up with a pounding head? Breath smell like something died in your mouth? No judgment here. But, if you’re looking for an all natural way to feel alive again, read on.
More Oil Pulling= Less Hangover
As you may know, oil pulling comes with a huge list of benefits. Some of the more commonly known include whiter teeth, fresher breath, improved halitosis, improved digestion, relief from skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, and more balanced hormones. But did you know that oil pulling with coconut oil can help improve a hangover?
Yes, it is true. The basis of why oil pulling works is that the oil works to pull out toxins from your body, many whose first point of contact is your mouth. By swirling and pulling the oil around your mouth, you can draw out some of the impurities you absorbed the night before out of your body. Coconut oil also has the added benefit of containing lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties and helps to kill unwanted bacteria in your mouth.
It won’t take back the drunken texts you sent the night before but it can help you feel better. So, before you roll over and desperately chug a glass of water, and down a few Tylenol, hold off and oil pull for 10-20 minutes first. We guarantee you’ll feel better in no time!
