5 Bad Breath Cures You’ll Find in your Kitchen

If your breath is less than its best, you’re probably wondering, what causes bad breath? But the more important question is, how you can make your breath better? By eating these five foods, you can kiss bad breath goodbye.

  • Munch on Crunchy Fruits and Vegetables
  • Firm, crisp fruits and veggies are proven bad breath cures. Chomping on apples, celery, broccoli, carrots and other crunchy choices increases the flow of saliva, which washes away odor-causing debris. And the fibrous texture of fruits and veggies helps to clean your teeth.

  • Freshen Your Breath with Fresh Herbs
  • Chewing on fresh herbs is one of the best home remedies for bad breath. Parsley, mint, basil, tarragon, rosemary, cardamom, or any fresh herb with a pleasant scent can cover up halitosis.

  • See the Breath Benefits of Vitamin C-Packed Fruits
  • In addition to being good for your body, fruits full of vitamin C are great bad breath cures. Fruits like melons, citrus, and berries contain lots of vitamin C, which fights bacteria in your mouth and helps improve oral health.

  • Pop a Piece of Sugarless Gum
  • If you have halitosis, choose to chew sugarless gum. The chewing that gum requires stimulates your saliva to rinse away bacteria and keep teeth very clean.

  • Stick with Cinnamon Sticks
  • Chewing on cinnamon sticks is one of the oldest home remedies for bad breath. Cinnamon’s spice is nice for bad breath because it contains an essential oil that kills the bacteria in your mouth, which is what causes bad breath. Plus, cinnamon leaves a lovely scent that covers up bad breath immediately.
