There are few things more unpleasant and uncomfortable in social situations than talking to someone with bad breath, also known as halitosis. There are a number of reasons for this condition: eating odorous foods, medical conditions, dry mouth, smoking, gum disease, sinus conditions and poor oral hygiene. However, the prime cause of bad breath is the build-up of bacteria on the back of the tongue or between the teeth. Some natural remedies can help cure bad breath at the systemic level through diet.

 

Drink plenty of water. Dehydration is one of the most common causes of halitosis. Tiny microbes in the mouth actually feed on loose food particles throughout the day and release odour causing by-products. Water dislodges bacteria and makes the breath a bit more palatable. Zinc supplements help maintain a bacteria-free mouth, while foods such as pumpkin and gourd seeds, cacao and organ meats provide the anti-microbial supplement Zinc.


Eat more raw foods including carrots, apples and celery. Crunchy organic fruits and vegetables are rich in fibre and can help scrape out bacterial plaques from the mouth. Salt water gargling helps to remove bacteria from the throat and tonsils. Cloves are rich in eugenol, a potent antibacterial, and chewing fennel, dill, cardamom, or anise seed will kill bacteria growing on the tongue and help to mask bad odour. A stick of cinnamon is also effective as an antiseptic.
