Bad Breath Even Haunts the Most Beautiful Celebrities

Monday, February 25th, 2013

ist_000000361485What did you get your Valentine this year? Perhaps it was a box of chocolates, bouquet of flowers or a new piece of jewelry. Superstar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took cupid’s holiday to address what may be a pressing matter in their relationship: Angie’s bad breath. After their nearly eight year relationship, Pitt gave his fiancé a gag gift to treat her smelly breath, something that could easily caused by a low-carb diet.

“It is sort of a joke – and not. He always teases her that she has bad breath,” a source close to the superstar told US Weekly. “It’s a joke gift… he’ll also get her something more serious.”

But maybe Brad should have invested in something that could knock that bad breath out forever. Therabreath mouth wetting lozenges do the trick – and they won’t get in the way of her strict diet because they are vegan-friendly, kosher and help to whiten teeth. Even if you’re not sure what is causing bad breath, these unique lozenges keep your mouth fresh and moist all day long.

Often times, dry mouth is causing bad breath, or in Angie’s case, perhaps it’s her diet, so you don’t want to solve the problem with anything that won’t help produce saliva in your mouth. These lozenges also taste great! Using the healing powers of oxygen, zinc and Xylitol, you’ll eliminate dry mouth symptoms in a jiff. Just pop one of these bad boys three or four times a day and you’ll be feeling confident, fresh and ready to take on the world. Are you more of a gum chewer? No problem – Therabreath has got you covered with our French Kiss chewing gum used often by celebrities before big on-screen smooches. 

After all, there’s nothing better than not having to worry about stinky breath when you’re with your sweetie.

Zac Efron says: To get rid of Bad Breath, Skip the Tuna and Onions

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Though he recently denied being a heartthrob, actor Zac Efron has kissed his fair share of starlets onscreen – from Vanessa Hudgens in High School Musical to, most recently, Taylor Schilling in The Loved One. The latter has a steamy bedroom scene, one that Efron said frequently made him and his co-star giggle. So what helped keep him in character? In a recent TV interview, he recounted his quest to get rid of bad breath by skipping smelly foods.

“No onions!” Efron told Access Hollywood. He added that on the day he and Schilling filmed their intimate scene, he chewed tons of gum to mask any halitosis.

Of course, regular gums may temporarily cover up oral odor, but they can’t get rid of bad breath. That’s a job for all-natural, specialty breath freshening gum like TheraBreath chewing gum or mints (such as our Mouth Wetting Lozenges or ZOX), which neutralize odor molecules even as they wet the palate.

However, Efron didn’t just avoid onions. He also steered clear of seafood, based on his experiences making a previous film.

“I had a kissing scene one time, and I ate a tuna sandwich,” he told the news source. “It was the first [scene] I had to do, and I got called out on it.”

Understandably, Efron had a hard time staying in his head.  “It was so embarrassing,” he added. “You don’t do that, don’t be that guy!”

Past Celebrities and Historical Figures with Bad Breath

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Smoking, consuming alcohol, plaque, gum disease, dry mouth, post nasal drip, and tonsil stones are just a few causes of bad breath. Given the many causes, it’s no wonder that millions of people suffer (and have suffered) from bad breath.

Here are a few high-profile people of the past with bad breath, why they had it, and what they could have done to treat it.

Clark Gable – a famous actor of the 20th century is best known for his role in Gone with the Wind and his strong halitosis.  His co-star Vivien Leigh reportedly complained often of Gable’s bad breath while on-set filming the classic Civil War movie. His foul breath came from his dentures. False teeth and dental bridges can be a source of bad breath, especially when they are not cleaned properly. Perhaps Clark should have washed his dentures in one of TheraBreath’s oral rinses for his on (and off) screen kissing scenes.
