Dietary Cures for Bad Breath

Bad Breath

When it comes to social situations, nothing dampens the mood quite like having a conversation with a halitosis sufferer. Chronic bad breath is unpleasant both for the person afflicted by it, as well as those with whom they are speaking. While there are numerous ways to temporarily disguise the problem, the key to conquering the issue once and for all involves making some important adjustments to the diet and sticking to a sound dental care regimen.

If you are dealing with an ongoing bad breath problem, you should first try conventional dental care techniques such as regular tooth brushing, frequent flossing, gargling with baking soda and peroxide, and seeking routine cleanings from an affordable dentist at a local family dentistry clinic. However, if none of those methods prove effective, you may need to look to your diet as a potential source of the issue.

Drinking more water each day can be a simple way to combat bad breath, since dehydration is a common culprit when it comes to this complaint. Insufficient water intake can cause you to experience bacterial accumulations in the mouth that result in unpleasant breath. Ingesting lots of water helps your body produce saliva, which is a natural bacteria fighter.

You may be surprised to learn that zinc deficiency is the primary cause of halitosis in a large number of individuals, as it is a mineral that helps eliminate and neutralize bacteria in the mouth. Thus, as your family dentistry practitioner may suggest, it could pay to take oral zinc supplements or eat an array of foods rich in zinc in order to get the halitosis-fighting qualities it can offer.

Accumulations of heavy metals, toxins, and yeast in the body can also lead to chronic bad breath, and for that reason, the entire system ought to be flushed with regularity. To do this, you may choose to try stinging nettle tea or stinging nettle supplements. This herb has been shown to boost the lymphatic system and facilitate the expulsion of uric acid. This all serves to attack the foundational causes of halitosis.

Bad breath is also known to result from an unhealthy gut. If you know that you have toxic build-up in your digestive system, you should give serious consideration to probiotics as a potential solution. Using probiotic flora or incorporating probiotic-rich food such as yogurt into your diet can go a long way toward solving your halitosis problem.

Finally, most family dentistry professionals will agree that adding more celery, apples, and other crunchy produce into your daily diet is a great way to combat halitosis. Not only do these foods work to eliminate plaque buildup that can cause bad breath, they also help you produce extra bacteria-battling saliva.
