If you just discreetly checked your breath, you’re not alone. So many things can give you breath that clears the room, and nobody wants to be that person! Luckily, a little prep can help prevent the worst of it.
If you’re worried about what you’re eating, worry about the right thing. While garlic and onion may have a bad reputation, they’re ultimately healthy for you, and the bacteria in your digestive tract. That means that while they might have a strong smell in the short term, it’s not inherently a bad one and won’t encourage the growth of bad, stinky bacteria.
On the other hand, sugar is the opposite. It may not have the immediate smell that savory foods like garlic and onion have, but in the same way you already know it feeds cavity causing bacteria, sugar feeds bacteria that causes bad breath.
The other thing that can help your breath is drinking plenty of water. In addition to everything else, dehydration can be hard on your gums. Drinking plenty of water also rinses your mouth out, which helps!
After managing what you’re putting in your mouth, be sure to tackle any bacteria that may have taken root. It will help your breath and your oral health. Mouthwash is a good way to get at the germs in your mouth. For less stinging support that can get at germs in your throat and beyond, you can also use colloidal silver.
Gently support gum health and fight odor causing bacteria with the colloidal silver you may already use as daily immune support. The only addition? Give it a thorough swish and maybe a gargle before swallowing, and suddenly you’re getting more from immune supporting colloidal silver.
