How Cheese Can Improve Your Overall Oral Health

Posted on 9/7/2020 by Dr. J. Derek Tieken
How Cheese Can Improve Your Overall Oral HealthWhen consumed in moderation and given that you do not have an intolerance or allergy, cheese can be highly beneficial for both your dental and your overall health. Cheese is a great source of vitamins, minerals, and other components that are essential for your health. Like with most foods, there are certain types of cheese that are better for you than others. We can give you more information on dental health at our office. Call us to schedule an appointment.

Benefits Cheese Can Provide

Cheese includes many components that your body needs to be healthy. For instance, some of these include calcium, protein, magnesium, glutathione (anti-oxidants), Omega-3 fatty acids, and various vitamins. These can make your bones and teeth stronger, meaning you are less prone to tooth decay or damage. In addition, these components can also contribute to lower blood pressure and cholesterol and healthier blood vessels, levels of gut microbiota, weight, and cells. The various components in certain types of cheeses can also mitigate the risk of other components, such as sodium and fat, that people generally try to avoid. For instance, anti-oxidants can protect you against sodium. Cheese is a fermented food, which causes it to increase gut microbiota. These bacteria have a symbiotic relationship with the human body, meaning that they provide benefits while living off of you. Gut microbiota can help lower your cholesterol. Cheese is beneficial for blood flow, which also makes the brain healthier overall.

Healthiest Types of Cheese

Like with any food, there are many different types of cheese. These do not all have the same benefits, so there are a few types in particular that you should try to include in your diet. The most beneficial types of cheeses are mozzarella, blue cheese, feta, cottage cheese, ricotta, parmesan, swiss, and cheddar. These are generally low calorie and low in fat, meaning they give you the benefits without a lot of repercussion.
