Pomegranate and Chamomile Help Heal Bleeding Gums

Researchers from Brazil's Paraíba State University have determined that extracts of pomegranate and chamomile can help heal bleeding gums.

The researchers tested 56 patients who had bleeding gums and gingivitis. They were split into three groups and each rinsed twice daily with an assigned rinse for 15 days. One group rinsed with chamomile extract, another group rinsed with pomegranate extract and a third group rinsed with chlorhexidine.

The patients were tested for bleeding gums at the beginning of the study, after seven days and after 15 days. The researchers found that all three extracts acted similarly and reduced gum bleeding significantly.
