Follow a better breath diet
According to Dr. Mitchell, simply adding crisp fruits and vegetables to your daily intake can clean your chops naturally by removing plaque and food particles from in between your teeth and gums. Incorporating more fresh produce into your diet will also deliver a delicious dose of antioxidants and other phytonutrients that can boost your dental and overall health.
Tame your tongue
Did you know that your tongue, especially on top in the back of the mouth, is a serious source of halitosis? “Bacteria love to linger on the back of this muscle (your tongue), and it’s a location where food can easily get trapped and rot, causing odor,” says Dr. Mitchell. “Invest in a tongue scraper — it will save you a fortune on gum and mints.”
Go herbal to get rid of halitosis
Schedule tea time every day to help you keep bad breath at bay. “Sipping natural remedies like black and green tea can alleviate bad breath naturally by zapping bacteria that breeds in the mouth,” Dr. Mitchell explains. She also recommends spicing up your meals with the Indian spice cardamom to curb halitosis.
