It is the nitrates in spinach that can help prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes, nitrate increases levels of nitric oxide in the body with the help of friendly bacteria.

But research found that mouthwash may reduce the benefits of nitrates.

Bacteria in the mouth are needed to provide the first step in the pathway that uses nitrates to generate nitric oxide.

New research shows that nitrates make mitochondria by making them less “leaky”.

Nitric oxide is an important molecule which opens up blood vessels, lowers blood pressure, and improves circulation.

This has the effect of increasing their efficiency as biological machines.

Green leafy vegetables of all kinds are rich in the inorganic chemical which until recently was not thought to have any nutritional value.

This research conducted by Karolinska Institute in Sweden, the leadng researcher Professor Eddie Weitzberg

Previously Prof Weitzberg and colleague Professor Jon Lundberg showed that dietary nitrate increases levels of nitric oxide in the body with the help of friendly bacteria.

An odd implication of the research is that mouthwash may reduce the benefits of nitrates.
Bacteria in the mouth are needed to provide the first step in the pathway that uses nitrates to generate nitric oxide.
“In our view, strong mouthwashes are not good if you want this system to work,” said Prof Weitzberg.

This is a very valid point but how many people realize they are putting pesticides in their mouth or breathing & eating these toxic chemicals.

Think about it

You probably have heard the many advertizing spiels.

Kills 99% of Germs” or “Keeps Your Mouth Bacteria Free”

They kill your good bacteria as well as the bad bacteria.

My recent article Triclosan Products Not Tested Beforehand WHY?

This article is about a pesticide product which has many different names it is used in your toothpaste, mouthwash, denture products, chewing gum, clothing, nappies, detergents, liquid soaps, deodorants, cosmetics, lotions, anti-microbial creams & more.

Extracted from US Government Report Triclosan exposure may occur through ingestion of toothpaste, mouthwash, or dentifrices containing triclosan and through dermal contact with consumer products containing triclosan, or through consumption of contaminated food and drinking water (HSDB, 2004).

An admission by Regulator that you are going to eat, absorb, drink & breathe this listed pesticide.

You can add to that the multitude of insecticides, pesticides, cleansers etc you may be using, chemicals from such products can be absorbed into your body affecting your good bacteria & your health.

I hope the above information helps improve you health by choosing what type of food & products are good or bad for you.

Kind Regards John
