The magic that is malic acid. A powerhouse fruit that holds the benefits of this tooth whitening enzyme has proven to naturally whiten teeth as the acid breaks away stains. Brushing with a combination of these crushed berries with ½ a teaspoon of baking soda is a great natural whitening remedy. While baking soda has been considered safe and only a mild abrasive on the teeth it is important not do this more than once a fortnight to avoid enamel breakdown!
