5 Foods that Improve Halitosis

Millions of people have bad breath and don’t know how to improve it. Instead of worrying about what causes bad breath, focus on making it better. The key to fresher breath can be found with these five foods.

Crunch on Firm Fruits and Vegetables

Did you know that crisp fruits and veggies are powerful bad breath cures? Chewing on apples, carrots, celery, and other crunchy choices boosts your saliva flow, which rinses away odor-causing germs. And the fibrous texture of fruits and veggies helps to clean your teeth.

Pick Fruits High in Vitamin C

Citrus, melons, berries, and other fruits packed with vitamin C are effective bad breath cures. See, vitamin C fights bacteria in your mouth and improves your dental health.

Get Fresh with Fresh Herbs

If your breath smells bad, chewing on fresh herbs is one of the simplest home remedies for bad breath. Mint, parsley, basil, rosemary, tarragon, or any fresh herb that has a nice scent will instantly mask halitosis.

Spice up Your Breath with Cinnamon Sticks

Cinnamon sticks are another one of those of those old-fashioned home remedies for bad breath. Cinnamon’s spice is one of the great bad breath cures because it contains an essential oil that kills the bacteria in your mouth, which is what causes bad breath in the fist place. Plus, chewing on cinnamon sticks leaves the pleasant scent of cinnamon to cover up bad breath.

Get the Sweet Rewards of Sugar-free Gum

Chewing sugarless gum is another way to fight halitosis. The chewing that gum requires stimulates your saliva flow to rinse away bacteria in your mouth and keep teeth very clean.
