How to Use a Miswak
Miswak – The World’s Oldest Toothbrush
One of the first “noted” forms of dental hygiene is the “Miswak”, which is still used by people in North Africa, Southeast and Central Asia, and the Middle East. What exactly is this so-well-hidden secret known as the miswak?
Miswak is a natural toothbrush that comes from a tree called the “Salvadora persica”, or “Arak” or “Peelu”. For decades, researchers have looked at the miswak’s natural antibiotic properties, which are found in the tree’s branches and roots. Many studies have concluded that, when it’s used right, it can have a positive effect on a person’s oral hygiene. The tree’s leaves and berries were also found to have natural remedies in them.
With so many good things coming from this tree, it’s not surprising that the World Health Organization, in 2008, endorsed Miswak.
