African Chew Sticks
Over the last few centuries, people in Africa and nearby Muslim countries have made natural toothbrushes from frayed twigs referred to as “chew sticks.” The best chewing sticks are made from twigs of the Salvadore Persica tree, which many ethnic groups call the “toothbrush tree.” Other chew sticks are made from twigs of the licorice bush, these chew sticks are also among the best quality chewing sticks available today.
Tests have shown that the African Chewing sticks contain natural antibiotics, fluoride, and other anti-cavity ingredients. When Africans came to the United States, they brought their revolutionary idea with them. Many older people are finding themselves in their 80’s with healthy gums and cavity-free teeth, and they are using nothing but chew sticks to take care of them! The chewing action keeps the gums healthy, cleans the food from teeth and freshens the breath. Chew sticks are an easy and flavor-filled way to enjoy excellent dental health. Also in recent years, African chew sticks have been used as a successful way to quit smoking.
