Your teeth are a direct symptom of your gut health. My suggestion is to increase foods rich in Boron and phosphorus. And Foods rich in K2 to mineralise the body and follow a detoxification protocol to elevate toxins and excess mucus stopping nutrients being absorbed and a plant diet.

Phosphorus is an important mineral used as a material when building cell membrane and nucleic acids, among other roles.

In short these minerals keep your muscles, teeth and bones strong.

Recommended Daily Dietary Amount (RDA) of Boron:

  • Age, Pregnancy or LactationUpper Limit of Boron1-3 years old3 mg/day
