Good oral and dental hygiene is essential for our bodies’ overall well-being. However, achieving and maintaining complete oral hygiene is a challenge because regular toothpaste and tooth powders cover only some aspects of oral and dental health.
Farooky Tooth Powder is an excellent product of Karkhana Zinda Tilismath, made up of 12 natural herbs and botanical extracts. Millions have trusted it for the last 100 years. Unlike other tooth powders, it is a complete oral hygiene protector. Its ingredients’ antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, astringent, soothing, and cleansing effects not only make the teeth strong and clean but also protect the oral and dental mucosa.
Let us discuss in more detail the properties of Farooky Tooth Powder, which compels us to say it is a complete oral hygiene protector.
Beneficial Effects That Make Farooky Tooth Powder A Complete Oral Hygiene Protector
Using Farooky Tooth Powder provides you with the following benefits;
Maintenance of Oral Homeostasis
Farooky Tooth Powder contains salt (namak) which neutralizes the acids produced by the bacteria and keeps the pH of the mouth around or above 7. It is the optimum pH for the groFarooky Tooth Powder contains salt (namak), which neutralizes the bacteria’s acids and keeps the mouth’s pH around or above 7. It is the optimum pH for the growth of good bacteria, while harmful bacteria cannot thrive in the mouth at this pH. The good bacteria, e.g., lactobacilli, help digest the food and combat harmful cariogenic microbes like Streptococcus sp., Actinobacillus, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Prevotella intermedia, which are the cause of bad breath, gingivitis, tooth decay, Etc. (Kõll‐Klais et al., 2005, p. 354).
Most of the botanical and natural oil extracts included in the formulation of Farooky Tooth Powder possess antimicrobial properties. They kill various bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens which cause disease of the gums, teeth, and oral mucosa.
For instance, studies have shown that ajwain contains two active compounds, i.e., thymol and carvacrol, which have the potential to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi and are also effective against multi-drug resistant pathogens like Streptococcus mutans, Candida albicans, etc., which are notorious for causing oral diseases (Bairwa et al., 2012, p. 56; Khan et al., 2010, p. 292).
The same goes for clove, cinnamon (marching), cardamom, and black pepper, which have been proven to prevent the proliferation of numerous harmful bacteria, fungi, yeasts, and molds commonly found in our oral cavity (Almeida et al., 2016, p. 393; Chaudhary & Perveen, 2006, p. 214; Nuñez & Aquino, 2012, p. 1255; Swathi et al., 2016, p. 416; Zainal-Abidin et al., 2013). Likewise, Eucalyptus oil has its own separate and broad range of antimicrobial activity. (click here to read more about Eucalyptus Oil)
Farooky Tooth Powder also helps in mitigating redness and swelling of the gums. It is attributed to the solid anti-inflammatory actions of its ingredients like clove and black pepper. The clove contains high amounts of eugenol, which suppresses the nuclear factor-κB pathway responsible for mediating the production of inflammatory cells and cytokines (Bachiega et al., 2012, p. 610). Piperine, the active compound of black pepper, also imparts a similar anti-inflammatory effect (Tasleem et al., 2014, p. 461).
Bleeding gums is another common problem we cannot neglect while discussing oral hygiene. Farooky Tooth Powder also addresses this issue. The alum it contains has remarkable astringent (Kashaya) effects (Zeenat, 2018, p. 78). It tightens the gums and reduces the gap between teeth and gums, thus minimizing the chances of bleeding. Similarly, red ochre (Geru) is known to heal gum ulcers and bleed.
The black pepper, in contrast, is enriched with vitamins like thiamine, riboflavin, vitamins B, C, E, and K, Etc. (“Spices, Pepper, Black”). It strengthens the gums and prevents bleeding caused by vitamin deficiencies.
Caries, bacteria, and inflammation of the gums usually cause toothache. Pulling with Farooky Tooth Powder provides you instant relief from toothache. This effect is rendered by the natural ingredients which are part of its composition, like Ajwain, Cinnamon (darchini), clove, Etc.
The thymol present in Ajwain ameliorates the inflammation and has a soothing effect which, in turn, helps mitigate tooth pain (Agarwal, n.d.). Similarly, eugenol of clove is a natural anesthetic that numbs the area and eases the toothache (Jesudasan et al., 2015, p. 826). Conversely, Cinnamon prevents toothache’s development or progression by suppressing the inflammatory mediators and fighting against the cariogenic bacteria responsible for causing dental problems (Wiwattanarattanabut et al., 2017, p. 30).
Cures Bad Breath
As mentioned earlier, Porphyromonas gingivalis, Treponema denticola, Prevotella intermedia, Etc., are the bacteria responsible for causing bad breath (halitosis). The natural herbs of Farooky Tooth Powder have remarkable antibacterial effects against these pathogens.
For example, a study has demonstrated that cinnamon impairs the integrity and permeability of the P. gingival cell membrane resulting in the leakage of cellular proteins and nucleic acids, which, in turn, causes the death of bacteria (Wang et al., 2018, p. 26). Similar antibacterial effects have been elicited by black cardamom. Besides, the pungent aroma of cardamom (elaichi) itself masks the bad smell in the mouth.
Makes Teeth Hard And Strong
Another common dental problem is the weakening of teeth. It happens because of the loss of minerals, like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which are responsible for providing strength and hardness to the teeth. As a result, teeth become prone to break easily or fall.
Farooky Tooth Powder contains Soapstone (Sangzera), a metamorphic rock composed of calcium and magnesium. It fulfills the deficiency of the lost minerals and makes teeth strong again. Besides, the black pepper is also rich in minerals like zinc, sodium, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus (“Spices, Pepper, Black”). Therefore, using Farooky Tooth Powder also protects your teeth from mineral degradation.
Cleansing of Teeth
Pulling with Farooky Tooth Powder removes debris and bacteria from the deepest corners of the mouth. Besides, the Tumar beej is a natural herbal dental cleanser known to protect against dental caries, plaques, pyorrhea, and teeth hypersensitivity.

To conclude the above discussion, Farooky Tooth Powder is a complete oral hygiene protector. It not only makes the teeth strong and clean but also provides a cure and protection against various dental problems, including caries, plaques, tooth decay, bleeding, swollen gums, Etc. These benefits are rendered due to its natural ingredients potent antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and astringent effects.
