Bad breath which is also called halitosis in medical term is very embarrassing and makes a huge effect on your confidence level. It can be due to many reasons such as smoking, medical conditions, eating odorous foods, gum disease, etc. But the main cause of bad breath is the bacteria that get build between your teeth or on the back of your tongue. So maintaining the good oral condition is important to control bad breath. The best natural remedies to get rid of bad breath are:
Cinnamon: Cinnamon contains an essential oil which not only covers the bad breath but also helps in reducing the number of bacteria present in our mouth. To use this remedy we have to first boil the powder of cinnamon and then we have to strain it and now it is ready to use as a mouth rinse.
Green Tea: Many researchers have found that green tea has a potential to temporarily reduce the bacteria due to its antibacterial action and this action is probably due to the presence of polyphenols and antioxidants. It is recommended to drinking 3-5 cups of green tea per day and also you can take a polyphenol EGCG supplement.
Drink More Water: There are many people who drink very little water throughout the day because of which the saliva is not produced in much quantity which has the role to eliminate the bacteria present in our mouth that are the responsible for causing bad breath. But in order to produce enough saliva, we have to drink more water throughout the day. Since saliva contains oxygen so it makes very difficult for the bacteria to survive because they require low-oxygen in order to survive.
Decrease Your Stress: One natural remedy to reduce bad breath is to get your stress under control. Since bad breath is a sign that your immune system isn’t working in a way it should be. Stress has the ability to cause odour as we know that stress increases the sweat gland activities because of which these secretions interact with bacteria in our body to create body odour. So we should get control our stress as a concern to reduce the effect of bad breath.
Besides the above mentioned we can also use salt water gargle as this combination is very useful to eliminate the bacteria from our throat and tonsils. But Himalayan crystal salt and fresh water are mainly preferred in this remedy.
