Looking for a natural way to whiten your teeth? Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and malic acid — a natural enamel whitener. The vitamin C in strawberries strengthens blood vessels and reduces inflammation, which promotes healthy gums. Vitamin C is also required for the production of collagen, a key protein that helps fight periodontal disease. Without this essential vitamin, your gums could become sensitive and more susceptible to bacteria.
