Sweet Tea was the perfect blog to do a TheraBreath Review and Giveaway. Blog owner Tammy writes “I know women who won’t leave the house without makeup on their face and other people I know worry about their hairstyle to the point of obsession. Most people have something about their physical appearance that they fixate on or worry about. My thing is teeth.” Did she enjoy our products? Go here to find out and enter her giveaway.
Learning to Save 101 honestly admits she wasn’t sure at first about doing a TheraBreath Review and Giveaway.

Find out here, and enter to win some free TheraBreath products.
Fairy Good Mommy also writes about her prior opinions to mouthwash in her TheraBreath Review“I am not a huge fan of mouthwash. Never have been because of the minty “burn”. When I first read the label of the Oral Rinse and saw “Non Burning” I thought, we’ll see.” Were we able to change her mind? You’ll have to stop by and read her entire review here.
Strong Army Mom admits in her review that “this toothpaste is a little different from others I have used.” She also gives some great tips on how to most effectively use these products. Definitely stop by Strong Army Mom to read her whole review here.

First of all, we’re proud to announce the following:
An article in the UK’s Daily Mail last week about bad breath entitled “How Mouthwash Can Give You Bad Breath and Stain Your Teeth” mentioned many of the studies I’ve been telling you about over the years including the study from the Australian Dental Society linking alcohol in mouthwash to oral cancer.
What was surprising in this article is that they finally corroborated what I’ve been saying about the dangers of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (the detergent everyone uses in toothpaste — except TheraBreath). Specifically, it says:
“Alcohol based mouthwash has also been linked to an increase risk in oral cancer. Scientists in a study published in The Dental Journal of Australia in 2009 reported that the alcohol in mouthwash allowed cancer causing substances to permeate the lining of the mouth more easily. Some ingredients in toothpaste such as the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate can interact with the fluoride in mouthwash and deactivate it so that it loses its effect.”
So as you can see, it literally washes away tons of good stuff, including the fluoride if you’ve previously rinsed with a fluoride mouthwash!
I knew from day 1, that Sodium Lauryl Sulfate was bad news, but the good news is that TheraBreath Toothpaste is and always has been Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and alcohol free! So make sure to visit one of the NEW stores listed above (or click here to find more stores near you), and if you don’t find TheraBreath products on the shelf at any of the stores above, please do me a favor and go talk to the store manager and ask them why not!
To celebrate the new retailers, new products at our current retailers, and the fact that TheraBreath toothpaste does everything we promise it will do, here are some coupons that you can use at any of these stores.
Yours in good oral health,

Music is everywhere within our daily lives. We hear it in the car, at home, on TV and even at the grocery store. Musicians often say they write about everyday life which often includes love, hate, death, fear, job and even bad breath! Here are a few songs from songwriters that don’t tip toe around the subject of halitosis:
Tupac Shakur’s “Check Out Time” is one of the few songs noted to address morning breath. Shakur writes, “Now I’m up early in the morn’, breath stinkin’ as I’m yawnin’.” The speaker has just woken up in a hotel room. Morning breath is a very common occurrence and can be easily fixed by brushing with TheraBreath toothpaste and then rinsing (without water) with TheraBreath Oral Rinse both before you go to bed and when you wake up. Morning breath is often due to sleeping with your mouth open, which dries out your mouth and leaves a great environment for anaerobic bacteria to cultivate bad breath. To prevent morning breath, make sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water each day. TheraBreath’s line of probiotics is always a great way to keep your breath fresh, especially in the morning.
Blink 182 has a funky song called “Does my Breath Smell?” It’s a big odd because the song doesn’t once ask the actual question or even mention halitosis. It’s mostly a rhetorical question the song writer asks because he is unable to attract members of the opposite sex. Bad breath has been listed as the #1 turn off in people looking for potential partners. Make sure to always have some TheraBreath gum or mints with you so you’re sure to be ready whenever a chance to find a date arises.

Most people don’t LOVE to go to the gym. It’s something we do to keep physically fit or burn off some steam. We’re so focused on working out our bodies, but do we think about whether or not we have fresh breath on our minds while we hit the treadmill? Well, according to the Phoenix New Times, bad breath is something we should be mindful of at the gym, especially if you work with a personal trainer.
Personal trainers have a list of irks when it comes to dealing with clients at the gym. Vanity, lack of commitment, constant complaints definitely are worth noting, but halitosis tops the list of the most annoying problems in working with clients according to a recent article by the Phoenix New Times.
Exercising or physical exertion of any kind involves a lot of body odors. A healthy sweat contains fats and hormones that combine to sometimes cause a sour, unpleasant smell. Perspiration also contains propionic acid, according to Medical News Today. This is a compound that the nose registers as a vinegar-like smell – definitely not something you want to breathe in while you’re trying to burn off those extra pounds.
