Horse chestnut for strong teeth

Horse chestnut for strong teeth

Extract of horse chestnut bark (Aesculus hippocastanum) is one of the ingredients that gives Fortifying Mint Toothpaste, Sensitive Orange Tooth Gel for Children und Sage Mouthwash their fortifying effects. It contains aesculin, which firms the gums and has a harmonising influence on the formation and hardening processes within the body. These two opposing tendencies play an important role in the development of the teeth as the tooth grows and requires both forming and hardening.

The polarity that can be found in the contrasting pair of light/lightness and darkness/heaviness is exemplified by the horse chestnut. The seeds germinate in the heavy darkness of the soil. Once the sprout emerges into the light of day, it shoots upward towards the light as quickly as possible. Light shines through their soft green leaves as they unfold in the spring; as they get older, the leaves become darker, heavier and more solid.
