10 foods to fight bad breath 

Whether on a first date or your big job interview, bad breath or “halitosis,” can make a bad impression. But a little change in diet can help you solve this problem.
The bacteria that breeds in your mouth, is responsible for producing the sulfur compounds that cause bad breath as they break down leftover food particles and dead cells inside your mouth.

Here are 10 foods that can help you clear out those bacteria and fight bad breath:

Fresh fruits and vegetables

Crunchy fresh fruits and veggies such as apples, pears, carrots and celery aid in the production of saliva, which cleans out the odor-producing bacteria in your mouth. Moreover, as these fruits and vegetables are rich in fiber, they act as natural toothbrushes as you eat. So get your double dose of goodness by eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Probiotic yogurt

Probiotic yogurt has good bacteria which fights the bacteria that causes bad breath. A study from the International Associations for Dental Research revealed that participants who ate three ounces of sugar-free yogurt twice a day for six weeks showed lower levels of bacteria-causing compounds.

Parsley and basil

Herbs such as parsley and basil contain polyphenols, which are natural chemicals that fight bad breath. These herbs are also tasty substitutions to garlic that causes a strong smell in the mouth. 

Cherries

Studies have demonstrated that cherries remove the smell of methyl mercaptan, a gas that causes bad breath and is emitted by foods such as onion and some cheeses. Lettuce also has the same effect.

Green tea

Green tea has an abundance of catechins and natural antioxidants which help fight bad breath causing bacteria. And similar to parsley and basil, green tea’s polyphenols are highly effective against bad breath.

Sugarless gum

Chewing gum is good for loosening and removing both food and dead cells from teeth, both of which are needed by bacteria to create bad breath. But be sure to avoid sugar-sweetened gum, which can hasten dental decay.

Melons and citrus

The healing power of Vitamin C is applicable to your mouth as well. Citrus fruits, melons and other foods rich in Vitamin C helps prevent halitosis-causing gingivitis and other oral health issues.

Chlorophyll

Though not food, this pigment is found in leafy green vegetables or in supplement form at your local health food store. It helps mask bad breath.

Ginger

Ginger has 6-gingerol, a compound which stimulates an enzyme in our saliva which aids the break down of sulfur compounds in the mouth. For maximum effect, combine pressed ginger, lemon juice and warm water in a solution for an easy, mouth rinse.

Water

Water rinses out food particles and dead cells from your mouth so your mouth does not become a breeding ground for bad breath causing bacteria.
