5 REASONS WHY YOU HAVE BAD BREATH
Nothing gives us anxiety more than having a bad breath, walking upto someone and realizing your breath smells like combination of tuna and blue cheese or whatever you had last night! We've all encountered some else's bad breath, we would hate for other people to experience the same.
So, here are few reasons why you have bad breath!!
Less water intake
When your body is dehydrated, you produce less saliva, which is what usually cleans your mouth from any lingering bacteria that causes those unwanted odors. This means your mouth will not only be as dry as the Arizona Desert, but it could get stanky too!
It goes without saying that the food you eat will have major consequences on your breath. We all know to avoid onions and garlic before a hot date! The food we eat is not only broken down in our mouth but strong smelling foods, like the aforementioned offenders, exit through our mouth too. So, to avoid any embarrassing run-ins, we’d advise that you ditch the onion rings before a big event. It’s not just strong-smelling foods either, people on low-carb diets can be victims to smelly breath.
You may think if you're a regular mouthwash user, you couldn't possibly get stuck with smelly breath. However, antibacterial mouthwash have a crazy amount of alcohol, which dehydrate your mouth.
Too many mints
We know this sounds crazy but your favorite little breath fresheners could be the source of your problem as the fresh scent will only temporarily cover the odor, and the sugar content can feed the bacteria, making the odor worse.
If you already have grade A dental hygiene but are constantly suffering from bad breath, then there could be another health problem at hand so we would recommend consulting your dentist and then a doctor
Quick and easy remedies…
● Gargle salt water: Salt is an antibacterial so it will kill off nasty bacteria loitering in your mouth and treat ulcer.
● Chew plants: Just as there’s food that induces bad breath, Mother Nature also came through with some cures – so grab some fresh parsley or mint (their chlorophyll content can destroy odours) and start chewing.
● Brush up: Make sure you clean your teeth twice a day (you can even gently brush your tongue), and don’t forget to floss – even if it’s just once a week.
