Is calcium good for your teeth?
Yes, absolutely! Calcium has been scientifically shown to help build strong teeth. Most dairy products, such as milk, yoghurt and cheese are good sources of calcium, however if you are on a Dairy Free diet supplementation maybe a suitable alternative. And as most medical experts recommend an intake of 1,200 to 1,500 milligrams of calcium a day for adults, you may wish to consider a calcium supplement regardless.
Is vitamin C good for teeth?
Yes, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that does more than just look after your Immune System, as it also plays an important role in collagen synthesis (this helps develop and maintain healthy gums), which may particularly benefit those with bleeding gums. Vitamin C is water-soluble, which means that your Body cannot store it and therefore requires a frequent intake of it, be it from fruits and vegetables or supplementation.
