5 Home Remedies for Bad Breath Found in Your Kitchen

If you suffer from halitosis, you may be surprised to learn that certain foods can actually make your breath much better. These foods strike at the source of what causes bad breath, which are the bacteria in your mouth. Best of all, these foods are probably in your kitchen right now.

The Natural Appeal of Yogurt

Did you know that yogurt has been thought of as one of the best home remedies for bad breath for hundreds of years? See, many yogurts contain live active cultures and probiotics, which fight the growth of the oral bacteria that lead to bad breath. And yogurt has been proven to reduce the amount of hydrogen sulfide in your mouth, which is what causes bad breath.

Water Can Rinse away Halitosis

When it comes to bad breath cures, water is a natural wonder. Drinking it rinses away the bacteria and food clinging to your teeth that cause your breath to be bad. In addition to drinking it all day long, try to rinse your mouth with water after eating to cleanse away food trapped in teeth.

Crunch into Fibrous Fruits and Vegetables

Fresh foods high in fiber like carrots, apples, broccoli, and celery can scrub bacteria off your teeth to reduce your risk of bad breath. Plus, eating them requires lots of chewing, which increases your flow of saliva and rinses away this debris.

Get a Fresh Look at Fresh Herbs and Spices

You can easily freshen your breath with fresh herbs and spices. Whether chewing on them raw or steeping them as tea, they are some of the very best home remedies for bad breath. See, these powerful herbs and spices can fight the bacteria lingering in your mouth, which is what causes bad breath. Plus, they cover bad breath instantly with their fresh, herbal scent. The best herbs and spices to choose as bad breath cures include:

  • Spearmint
  • Peppermint
  • Parsley
  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Tarragon
  • Eucalyptus
  • Cardamom
  • Rosemary

See How Vitamin C can Help

The way to handle halitosis is a dose of vitamin C. This very powerful vitamin can stop the growth of odor causing bacteria in your mouth, as well as neutralize the lingering odors from foods like onions and garlic. That’s why citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and grapefruits are some of the very best bad breath cures.
