How Your Diet can Help Prevent Gum Disease

Prevent gum disease with fruit like a mango Gum disease is a problem that every adult needs to be concerned with, especially as they get older. When you are young and carefree, it is likely that you do not really think about the food that you eat; you eat what you want. As you get older though, nutrition starts to play an important role in your life. Suddenly you need to watch your calories, avoid certain foods, or even follow a certain diet to promote good health. One disease that you can fight with proper nutrition is gum disease. There is not a special diet that you must follow; it is simply a common sense diet to help your gums stay healthy.

The Right Diet

A diet that is rich in whole grains, lean proteins, fruits and vegetables helps to keep your immune system boosted. This means that you are capable of fighting infection. This also means that you can help to prevent physical and even oral health diseases, such as gum disease. Your focus should be on foods that are high in antioxidants, as these are the foods that help your body fight as well as repair tissues that have been damaged. There are many foods high in antioxidants, allowing you to choose from your favorites:

•  Blueberries
•  Kidney beans
•  Apples
•  Cherries
•  Whole nuts
•  Spinach
•  Kale

In addition, you should consume foods that have a high level of Vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, broccoli, and potatoes. Each of these foods will help to boost your immune system, giving your mouth a fighting chance at preventing gum disease.
