Chew over these Delicious Bad Breath Cures

Did you know that many foods can fight halitosis? These foods contain powerful elements that help kill bacteria, which are what causes bad breath. By eating the following foods, your breath will be naturally better.

Get the Lowdown on High-Fiber Fruits and Vegetables

Chomping on fibrous, fresh foods like celery, apples, and carrots can actually remove the odor-causing bacteria clinging to your teeth. These crisp, firm foods require plenty of chewing, which stimulates saliva production to rinse these germs away.

Pour on the Water for Halitosis

One of the easiest and most effective bad breath cures is water. Drinking it rinses away the bacteria and food clinging to your teeth that cause your breath to be bad. In addition to drinking it all day long, try to rinse your mouth with water after eating to cleanse away food trapped in teeth.

Get a Fresh View of Fresh Herbs and Spices

You may not realize that the fresh herbs and spices in your kitchen are also home remedies for bad breath. The power of these spices and herbs lies in their ability to kill bacteria in your mouth, which is what causes bad breath in the first place. They also give breath a pleasant scent to cover up bad odors. Whether chewing on them raw or steeping them as tea, the best herbs and spices to choose include:

  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Spearmint
  • Peppermint
  • Parsley
  • Rosemary
  • Cardamom
  • Tarragon

Supplement Bad Breath with Vitamin C

Vitamin C is good for your overall health, as well as great for halitosis. This very powerful vitamin can stop the growth of odor-causing bacteria in your mouth, as well as neutralize the lingering odors from foods like onions and garlic. That’s why citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and grapefruits are some of the very best bad breath cures.

Get a Cupful of Relief with Yogurt

For hundreds of years, yogurt has been considered one of the most effective home remedies for bad breath. Yogurt’s live active cultures and probiotics stop the growth of bacteria in your mouth that causes bad breath. Plus, yogurt has been proven to reduce the amount of hydrogen sulfide in your mouth, which is also what causes bad breath.
