Boost Your Oral Health with Almonds

Posted .

Have you ever enjoyed snacking on almonds? If so, we’ve got some good news for you! Almonds are a super, tooth-healthy snack. Here are some reasons we’ve assembled summarizing why almonds are so great for your teeth and what you can do to allow them to help strengthen your oral health:

Almonds are easy to eat, like candies. Unlike many candies, almonds don’t contain very much sugar, meaning they won’t accumulate as much plaque on your teeth. Feel free to consume a fistful of almonds once and a while! The calcium and protein in almonds also shield and reinforce your teeth against destructive bacteria that can grow cavities and gum disease. Next time you’re heading for that bag of jelly beans, try enjoying some almonds instead!

To put some more almonds to your meal plan, think about bagging some as a part of your lunch. They’re tasty toasted and thrown onto salads, and they can add a kick to chicken meals. If you’re lactose intolerant, almond milk (unsweetened) can be a fitting replacement for milk.
