Foods That Keep Your Breath Fresher


Posted on 9/25/2019 by Sean Saghatchi
Foods That Keep Your Breath FresherNobody wants to have bad breath. Between mouth washes, rinses, chewing gum, breath mints, and more, most people spend a fair amount of money to avoid halitosis. But did you know that you can fight bad breath by changing your diet? There are certain foods that can help keep your mouth feeling (and smelling) fresh all day. Here is more information.

Foods for Your Breath


One reason for bad breath is the balance of organisms in your mouth. You can change this balance by eating certain foods. For example, if you drink unsweetened green tea, you are taking in a type of an antioxidant called a polyphenol. Polyphenols will reduce the population of the type of bacteria that contributes to bad breath. So, by taking a swig, you're helping to keep your mouth cleaned out.

Also, eating unsweetened yogurt will change the hydrogen sulfide in your mouth. This compound is responsible for bad breath, and you will definitely notice a difference when it is decreased. Other foods, like apples, spinach, cherries, and lettuce, contain compounds that will break down the smelly compounds in your mouth. So, after you finish a meal, try to have an apple for dessert. You will be glad you did.

Other Benefits
Of course, by eating the above foods, you will enjoy other benefits as well. You'll eat fewer processed foods, which will be good for your overall health. And you may find that it is easier to lose weight, as some of these foods are high in fiber, which means you won't eat as much when you're consuming them.

There are a myriad of benefits to eating better, so start today! If you have any questions about bad breath, its causes, or ways to treat it, please contact us. We are here to help you!
