Reports are starting to surface almost everywhere calling oil-pulling the next best thing since sliced bread. We all know why sliced bread is so delicious, but what is it about oil pulling that has everyone in such a tizzy? The process involves swishing an organic, cold-pressed oil around your mouth for up to 20 minutes then spitting it out into a receptacle (the oil will coagulate in your sink drain, and you really don’t want that, and swallowing keeps the toxins in your body, and you really really don’t want that!), and the results are rumored to be miraculous. How miraculous? Judge for yourself – here are 15 benefits you can get from your daily dose of oil pulling.

Once you start sleeping better you start to feel better and this next benefit is a direct result.
