I am sure you have been in a situation where you can smell your own breath and were horrified? Or smelled your co-workers breath and wanted to pass out? And then felt insecure about your own breath? Too many times. Especially if you didn’t realize there was garlic in your meal, when out with friends, or on a date and you feel self-conscious about your breath, and there is no toothbrush near by.
Drink Tea – Studies have shown that if you drink 2 cups of black tea daily can stop the growth of bacteria. It also cuts out the sulfur compounds by 30%. The tea stops bacteria from growing on gum and tongue tissues.
Use The Right Mouthwash – When buying a mouthwash, be sure to get one without alcohol. It is drying and can hinder you from getting the freshest breath.
Scrape Your Tongue – Studies have shown that 85% of bacteria that causes bad breath sit on the back of your tongue. So you must keep it clean if you want to have fresh breath. Just clean your tongue two times a day by scraping it with a plastic tongue scraper. Your risk of bad breath will drop by 300% in one week!
Eat Yogurt – What can yogurt not do? It seems like it is the save all. Now if you eat 6 oz. serving of plain or artificially sweetened yogurt with live cultures can possibly cut bad breath in half in as little of 4 weeks. The good bacteria take over the bad bacteria.
Parsley – Need a quick fix? Chew on a sprig of parsley if you need something to get that garlic smell off your breath and want to freshen fast. Parsley is rich in chlorophyll, a natural breath freshener that is actually the active ingredient in many breath mints!
