Posted on 11/30/2019 by PCCD Office
Everyone wants to have a great, beautiful smile. However, this smile doesn't usually come as easy as most people think. To be able to have a great smile needs the owner to be ever vigilant of the kinds of food they are consuming and also practice good oral health.
Although some foods are not good for our teeth, others serve the exact opposite goals and help us get the best smiles by strengthening our teeth and also helping to keep bacteria away. One such food is celery.
Celery for an incredible smile
This is one of the most underrated vegetables out there. Since the food has been associated with rabbits for the longest time, most people tend to think it's not the best when it comes to tasty dishes. However, with some care and a bit of creativity, the vegetable can be great and bring us a lot of benefits to our bodies. Not only is celery great for our oral health, it's also quite packed with nutrients to benefit our bodies.
This vegetable contains valuable nutrients such as folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin A. These nutrients are great for our bodies to keep them operating at peak performance. What's more, celery is also filled with vitamin K which is essential to keeping bones in top shape. This product is also very crunchy and has a lot of water in it. Therefore, it's a prime candidate for boosting saliva production and eliminating foods stuck between teeth ridges when we eat.
Using a little creativity, you can create a variety of salads to boost the flavor of the vegetable and also bring in some assortment of vegetables so that your nutrient intake can also be higher. Some of the salads you can create here are a Waldorf salad, bulgur and celery salad, a fennel and celery salad among many other options. Not only do you get a good dose of vitamins, but your teeth also get stronger and give you a great smile.
