Tea can be particularly good for your oral health because of the high levels of fluoride it contains, but green tea is an especially good option if you suffer from bad breath.
“Green tea fights bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay, and can even be used as a mouthwash to kill bacteria and reduce bad breath,” she asserted.
Of course, it’s not a substitute for good oral care, so you need to ensure you’re brushing properly - and remember to brush your tongue too. If you’re still struggling with bad breath in Surrey, a visit to a dentist is definitely the way to go.
Aside from its ability to help with your oral hygiene, there are many other reasons to reach for a cup of green tea, Ms Kaiser explained.
She told the newspaper that it’s full of antioxidants and added that regularly consuming both green and black tea “has been proven to significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer”.
One thing you should avoid doing, however, is adding sugar to your tea. The rising rates of tooth decay among children are thought to be due, in part, to the higher sugar content of many foods. A campaign was recently launched in the Isle of Wight to help educate people on the dangers of hidden sugars.
