Miswak sticks are becoming a hot trend in the UK. However, you may not know what a miswak stick is or where to buy one from.
Well, today we’re looking at miswak sticks and the best places to buy them in the UK.
By the end of this article, you are going to be an expert in miswak sticks and all their oral goodness!
What Are Miswak Sticks?
Miswak sticks are herbal chewing sticks; they are basically healthy chewing gum in the form of a stick that has been used for thousands of years! They have been used in the same way since cavemen were around.
A number of studies have shown that Miswak sticks are brilliant for oral hygiene.
In fact, some of these studies have even proven that miswak sticks are as good, if not better, than toothpaste! Well, that’s hardly surprising considering how long they’ve been around.
So, miswak sticks are used for oral hygiene.
They are about pencil sized and come from the Arak tree. However, Miswak sticks can also be made from the roots of lime, orange and neem trees.
As you chew a miswak stick, it serves a dual purpose.
Firstly, the friction from chewing helps to clean plaque from your teeth.
There is an abrasive material in miswak sticks called silica. This is naturally found in miswak sticks and removes stains and plague from your teeth.
You then have tannic acid, which helps prevent gingivitis and stop plaque forming on your teeth.
Those are the two functions of miswak sticks.
The abrasiveness helps clean the teeth and the acids help with long-term protection.
But you also get another little gem too. The resin in the miswak sticks (resin is found in any wood) settles on your teeth and provides a protective layer.
This can help prevent staining, plaque and microbial action.
So, miswak sticks are an excellent way of keeping your teeth clean and protecting them from any future damage.
It’s no wonder that they have been used for thousands of years!
People all over the world have used miswak sticks for centuries to keep their teeth clean.
Just remember, toothbrushes and toothpaste are relatively new inventions and serious problems with your teeth could have killed you in the not so distant past.
So, throughout history, people have experimented with different things to keep their teeth clean.
One of the most successful experiments was the miswak stick.
