There’s no avoiding smell breath if you have eaten foods like pickles, spices, onions, and garlic. Even after eating, once digested, they enter our bloodstream and are carried to the lungs which respire out the bad odour.
Solution: • Avoid such foods during the day or if you have a meeting soon after your intake. • Green tea and natural antioxidants in green tea fight bad breath causing bacteria. • The extra dose of chlorophyll in parsley and basil helps you from the bad breath embarrassment. • Gingerol is a compound in ginger that stimulates the salivary enzymes to breakdown the sulphur compound thus killing the bad breath. • Mouthrinsing with any perfume based mouthwash can mask the bad breath.
Poor Oral hygiene
If your dental hygiene is not maintained, food particles remain stuck in your mouth, and this leads to a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. Plaque irritates the gums, forming pockets of gingivitis which then leads to bad breath. It’s also very important to remember to clean your tongue too.
Solutions: • One of the simplest answers to most of the dental hygiene issues is brushing. Correct brushing will help remove extra particles of food stuck in and around the teeth. • Interdental brushes can also be used if any stubborn particles are stuck in between the teeth. • Mouthwash after every meal is a must to get rid of small unwanted particles deep inside your gums where your brush can't reach.
