Another reason why milk is good for your teeth

Another reason why milk is good for your teeth

Most of us would name calcium as the main ingredient of milk necessary for good, strong teeth. While calcium is important for maintaining bone and dental health, the protein lactoferrin could help with keeping teeth free of bacteria.

Lactoferrin is a protein found in cow milk, human milk, and body fluids such as saliva. When bacteria enter the periodontium (the tissue surrounding teeth), lactoferrin becomes the major player of an immune response to prevent infection.

The lactoferrin protein binds to iron, the mineral necessary for bacterial growth and survival in the periodontium. Sequestering iron decreases an individual’s risk of developing periodontitis (inflammation of the gums).

Lactoferrin can also counter damage from reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are oxygen molecules that bind with other elements to form toxic compounds. When ROS damage iron-containing proteins, iron roams freely for invading bacteria to use. Lactoferrin binds to this iron so that bacteria can’t use it for survival.

ROS themselves may be able to destroy periodontal tissue without the help of bacteria. If lactoferrin binds to iron before the mineral converts ROS to a toxic form, then ROS might be less likely to hurt gums.

Another natural defense mechanism is serum ferritin which increases during an immune response. Ferritin will move iron from blood plasma to cells so that the mineral is not available to bacteria.

If you happen to be lactose intolerant, green tea might provide some of the same benefits. Research shows that the polyphenols in green tea also bind to iron so that ROS don’t become harmful.

My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com did for me.
Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
Remain blessed.

My mum had small cell terminal lung cancer. She lost her hair while going through chemo and it devastated. She has recently finished her radiotherapy and she was losing her hair again :( mum wanted me to shave it off again as it's coming out in clumps.i know she was very upset and have told her to be confident it'll grow back but she's so upset, life became hell for me, because i just cant imagine my mum this way. i actually posted this online, and somebody replied me, that he knows once who can cure my mum, without spending much money and without taking anytime anymore, and there wont be any hair loss anymore. I said okay and i want to give it a try, the person that helped him (the person that i was referred to) is Dr Covenant, his email is covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com, he gave me his email address and i contacted him and told him everything, he (Dr Covenant) said i should not worry everything'll be okay in space of 8 days, i actually gave him a try.
It was not up to the 3rd day, i started noticing changes in my mum. Now my mum is healthy back and the cancer is gone. Am so grateful about this. I actually thought that my mum was going to die, but now she is still alive. Friends, if you have any problem such as cancer, or other illness like HIV/AIDS, GONORRHEA, or any other illness at all, and he is also specialized in getting ex back contact Dr Covenant on his email covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com or add him on watsapp on +2349057353987 or call him directly on +2348146671563. you can also go through his website if interested http://covenantspelltemple.blogspot.com.

I started seeking for help when I was desperate to see the good in my life because I was blinded by deception, expecting loyalty from a man who can’t be honest with himself. For 2 years’ happiness seems overrated while depression and anxiety took over my life.
One of the hardest thing I did was not not moving on because I trust my marriage will work again someday.
During the search to regain my sight and improve my marriage, I came across this email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com owned by Dr.Wakina love spell master. Immediately after a successful love spell was cast, my life was given a meaning, my husband changed his attitudes and started focusing on me and the family. He became my everything. We became truthful to ourselves.
I appreciate the time and effort he (Dr. Wakina) put into giving our lives a meaning.

Hey everyone
I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you.
Here’s his contact.

When I found Dr. Paul I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr.Paul through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. Paul helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. Paul to anyone in need of help.

I am writing this because I want to testify how great you are Dr Isikolo for what you have done for me. Everyone needs to know! I am a very satisfied and happy being now. I can't tell how long it's been since I've bought spells online, but none of them had the same results than yours. Jason definitely moved in with me 1 week ago. I was a little bit scared and nervous when Dr Isikolo told me that he will cast the spell and my man will return back to me in 2 days. It truly happened and i confirm the positive results with joy that Jason came back home to me after 2 days when He cast the spell for me. I know I should have messaged you before, but I was a bit scared that he could find out about the spell you did so I removed all your emails. Anyway, I can tell all your future customers who are reading this that they are doing the right choice to go with you for a spell. It was always great communicate with you and all the services you offer are just excellent. Thank you for everything you did for me..
