Helpful Tips For Bad-Breath Sufferers

Unless you've got an incredibly lucky mouth, you probably have to deal with some bad breath every now and then. But for many people, it just doesn't seem to stay away for long. It's unfortunate, but it doesn't have to be embarrassing. Remember that about 25 percent of people worldwide have chronic bad breath. So if you or someone you know has this problem, they're definitely not alone.

But suffering from halitosis lends itself to a couple of questions. For one thing, how does this bad breath happen? And of course, there's the one on most people's minds. What can be done about it?

It's easier to explain the cause than it is to find a solution, but I hope you can find both right here.

Don't forget to SHARE this and help others figure out how to tame their wild breath. And please, try to be gentle about it.

If you have bad breath, this is probably what's causing it.

Millions of nasty bacteria are having quite the party in your mouth.

They're chowing down on any food particles and dead cells you've got in there.

And when they're done, they leave behind some gross volatile sulfur compounds.

There are at least 150 possible compounds, but there are two that come up the most.

One is hydrogen sulfide, which smells like rotten eggs. The other is methyl mercaptan, which is more like rotting cabbage.

You're not going to want either of them around for too long.

But when you clean your mouth out, you'll find it's hard to get rid of them.

You'll definitely want to brush and floss regularly, but you may discover your bad breath persists even if you do that.

It's important to make sure you're getting plenty of water.

When your mouth goes dry, the dead cells that build up in your mouth don't have anything to wash them away. This gives all those bacteria a smorgasbord of snacks.

You might also think about getting a tongue scraper.

This can help get rid of unwanted bacteria and food particles on your tongue. You can also brush your tongue, but many people seem to prefer this.

However, you may need another step to keep bad breath-causing bacteria at bay.

Some scientists recommend bringing in helpful bacteria to fight the bad ones.

There's some promising research suggesting Streptococcus salivarius K12 can introduce their own products that bad bacteria can't stand. And they do it without hurting you at all.

If you're suffering from chronic bad breath, talk to your doctor about K12 lozenges and see if those can help you.

And be careful about using mouthwash.

A lot of them clear away as many good bacteria strains as they do bad ones. And alcohol-based ones can dry your mouth out, which only makes the problem worse.

Don't forget to SHARE this on Facebook and give your friends a breath of fresh air.
