33. Eat wasabi
Are you a sucker for sushi? Now you have another excuse to snack on it. The wasabi that’s usually served on the side may have oral health benefits. Research in Japan has found that this spicy green cousin to horseradish can stop bacteria from sticking to your teet. Wasabi, the pungent green horseradish served with Japanese sushi, has been found to afford yet another health benefit: it could prevent tooth decay.
The isothiocyanates in wasabi are already known to have a variety of beneficial health effects. Eating wasabi strips the harmful bacteria from the mouth and restores the alkalinity in the mouth. It helps in preventing tooth decay and cavities by inhibiting the development of bacteria. Which increases the acids of the saliva thus attacking the tooth enamel.
