Yes it’s so true, crisp fruits and veggies, alcohol free mouthwash, tea tree oil and sugar free gum can all help stop bad breath.
There are several things that may cause bad breath. Dry mouth and gum disease are often linked to bad breath. This is because the volatile sulfur producing compounds in our mouth that cause bad breath thrive in a dry, anaerobic environment. When our mouths are full of healthy, oxygen-rich saliva, then it is harder for the bacteria to thrive and create bad breath.
Diet can also cause bad breath. Dairy foods, foods rich in sugar, a diet rich in meat products and alcohol can result in bad breath. If you are lactose intolerant, this might be the main cause of your bad breath.
Dairy foods are notorious for creating bad breath. People that are lactose intolerant end up with more dense proteins available as bad breath fuel for the bacteria than those who have no problem with dairy foods (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, etc.) The end result is a buildup of amino acids, which are easily converted into volatile sulfur compounds by the anaerobic bacteria found within the surface of your tongue and throat.
To avoid bad breath, brush, floss and use an oral rinse without alcohol in it 2-3 times a day. Make sure you brush the roof of your mouth and your tongue as well. Eating crisp fruits and vegetables like apples and carrots can help too.
There’s an article titled “Bad Breath Remedies That Work” here: http://blog.therabreath.com/2010/08/bad-breat... . It gives some more tips on how to avoid stinky breath.
Also, have you ever considered taking an oral care probiotic? Studies have shown they can help with bad breath, throat and ear issues. There’s a really good site here: www.proprobiotics.com with tons of information.
I hope this helps!
