The first time I used a clay toothpaste…
I spit it out before my brain could register that it was supposed to be “toothpaste”.
It was a chunk of gritty dirt that tasted exactly like…
I came out of the bathroom quasi yelling at my sister,
“That’s disgusting. Was that a joke? That’s NOT toothpaste.”
After that fiasco, it took her about five more iterations to get it right.
To have something that could actually pass as toothpaste.
And five years later…
I haven’t looked back.
So why should you consider replacing your regular ol’ minty Crest toothpaste with something so strange?
Do you know what makes your toothpaste foam?
Did you know that fluoride calcifies your pineal gland?
Do you even know what your pineal glad is??
I ask you only because, back then, I didn’t.
And frankly even now I had to look up the "real" answer.
All of this was new to me.
And maybe it is to you too.
So here it is…
Detergents in toothpaste make it foam.
Detergents help break down plaque.
The most common detergent is Sodium Laurel Sulfate, also a known skin irritant.
You pineal gland – which is referred to as your third eye – produces melatonin.
Melatonin helps to regulate the entire rhythm of your body.
It also does a whole bunch of other incredibly important things that are a bit too bio-esque for this post.
Basically – it’s a really important piece of the “being a stable human” puzzle.
You shouldn’t mess with it.
And fluoride seriously messes with it.
Using a clay toothpaste is weird at first.
It’s not overly minty, and there is absolutely no foam.
But your mouth will feel surprisingly ultra clean afterward.
And you won’t get that gross aftertaste that comes along with conventional toothpaste.
Stick with it for a week (maybe two)
And I promise you—
You will never go back.
