Over the last few centuries, people in Africa, India, and nearby Muslim countries have made natural toothbrushes from frayed twigs referred to as “chew sticks.” The best chew 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 sticks available today.
Tests have shown that chew 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 80s 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. They are an easy and flavor-filled way to enjoy excellent dental health, and have also in recent years been used as a way to quit smoking.
