Did you know that scraping your tongue has a positive effect on your skin?
The more than 2,000-year-old ritual of scraping the tongue now has scientific evidence that it actually has an effect on beauty.
Dr. Nathan Bryan, a specialist in molecular and human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas, USA. shows in his scientific paper how stem cells can be positively affected by increases in nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide is mainly produced by good bacteria in the mouth. In order for these bacteria to flourish, it is necessary to displace the less good bacteria. This is exactly what we do by scraping the tongue, among other things.
