Natural Bad Breath Fixes

-Cinnamon Gum: Cinnamon gum contains cinnamic aldehyde, a plant essential oil used for flavoring. This oil doesn’t just cover up bad breath, it actually reduces the amount of bacteria in your saliva by 50%.

– Fish oil supplements:  Fish oil is known to reduce inflammation and bacteria in the mouth,  both of which can cause bad breath.

– Magnolia Bark Extract: This extract has been shown to kill most oral bacteria that cause bad breath within 30 minutes. It’s often found in mints and toothpaste.

– Celery, Apples and Carrots: All of these foods are fiber-rich foods. Fiber-rich foods aid in saliva production which helps wash away plaque build-up.

– Vitamin C:  Vitamin C can help prevent gum disease and gingivitis which both cause bad breath. This vitamin also makes the mouth inhospitable for bacteria growth.

– Black tea: Black tea helps keep your breath smelling sweet because it is full of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that stop plaque from clinging to your teeth. Studies have also found polyphenols inhibit the growth of bacteria in the mouth, thus minimizing the foul-smelling compounds that those bacteria produce.
