The virtues of Miswak - the Natural & Organic "toothbrush"
For better oral hygiene, we recommend the use of Miswak (in Arabic مسواك ) - combining the functions of a toothbrush and toothpaste - All in One 100% Natural and Organic ….
The Miswak is the “natural toothbrush” used for over 7000 years, in the form of a chewing stick with many virtues and anti-bacterial properties.
While chew sticks can be made from many common plants, such as olive trees, Miswak is most commonly associated with a shrub - Salvadora Persica - commonly referred to as "Arak" in Arabic.
Used for millennia, it is the Muslim prophetic tradition that makes it a good practice of oral hygiene in the Arab-Muslim world, still respected today.
It was the great Muslim doctors who advanced knowledge about oral hygiene, drawing inspiration from Rhazes (860-923), Abulcasis (936-1013) and Avicenna (980-1037 ). These scholars advised rigorous oral hygiene in accordance with the recommendations of Prophet Muhammad (Peace & Blessings Upon Him), who elevates the hygiene of the mouth and teeth to the rank of sacred ritual.
It was only in the year 2000 that the World Health Organization recommended its use. In 2003, an American scientific study even concluded that the use of Miswak is more effective than the use of a toothbrush…
