Healthy, strong teeth are important. But especially as we age our teeth become weaker. Below are some of the supplements that can help you keep your teeth strong.
Calcium is the number one most important supplement for healthy teeth. Try taking 1000mg to 1200mg per day.
Vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium. Some experts recommend taking fermented cod liver oil that is not heat processed.
Vitamin K2 works synergistically with vitamin D. You can get it in animal products, especially brie and Gouda cheeses.
Vitamin C supports collagen, which keep teeth attached to gums. Avoid the fizzy vitamin C drinks, though.
CoQ10 shrinks the pockets from gum disease. Try taking 60mg a day. For more information on supplements for healthy gums, click here.
