Aphrodisiacs Foods May Lead to Unromantic Breath

February 14th, 2011

Are you planning a romantic Valentine’s Day with your sweetie? A scrumptious dinner perhaps? There are a few foods that are well known to increase the libido, but may also serve up a side of bad breath. This doesn’t mean that you need to skip the aphrodisiacs for a plainer meal, just be aware of their possible links to unromantic breath and do you best to prevent it.

Oysters – a food at the top of the aphrodisiac list, oysters (and most shellfish) are known to have an unpleasant odor with it. While they taste divine, the smell may take remain in your mouth if you don’t take care to freshen your breath after your meal. The food particles may linger, resulting in halitosis.

Garlic and Figs – these foods that are known to increase sex drive have been linked to bad breath, as we have discussed in previous posts. Although they are very delicious touches to a dish, figs and garlic both have high levels of sulfur compounds, which commonly cause bad smelling breath. Bad breath itself is caused by volatile sulfur-producing compounds that thrive in an anaerobic environment – a dry mouth. Eating figs and garlic are really just adding more fuel to the fire of foul breath. A quick solution would be to chew a piece of TheraBreath Chewing Gum post-meal. It’s amazing how fast the garlicky smell is neutralized, as if you never enjoyed the garlic in the first place!

Bad Breath Can Ruin Intimacy

February 7th, 2011

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, many people are making plans for a romantic night with their partner or trying to find a new love prospect. Dating and relationships are tricky enough, adding bad breath to the mix can really cause intimacy issues.

What is the best way to end your bad breath? Prevent it. If you suffer from post nasal drip, try our TheraBreath PLUS Nasal-Sinus drops.  Don’t want to use nasal drops? Then try TheraBreath’s PLUS Power Drops our most potent formula for chronic bad breath, just put a few drops on the back of your tongue. Offensive breath from dry mouth can be quelled by using AktivOxigen Tablets. Just mix one tablet with eight ounces of water to make a potent oral rinse, double up on the tablets for extra strength. Try a Dr. Katz Hygienator Oral Irrigator to blast away tonsil stones. If gum disease is the source of your unpleasant breath, try our complete line of PerioTherapy, specifically designed to heal damaged gums and freshen your breath.

When it comes to intimate moments, our sense of smell is often something that is overlooked at as part of the experience. When the lights are low and sight is impaired, sense of smell becomes sharper. Researchers say that our sense of smell can dramatically affect our perception of things and experiences. If your halitosis is the only thing your lover can smell, they may view any experience with you negatively. 

Foul odors can really put a damper on the mood and romance in a relationship, especially if it is a chronic problem. While your partner may love you with all of your faults (we all have some) bad breath doesn’t have to be one of them- our customer testimonials are proof! Bad breath can interfere with bonding experiences that make a relationship stronger and in some severe cases, even threaten a marriage.

Bad Breath on a Talk Show

January 31st, 2011

Recently, E! TV’s website posted a short clip of an episode of the Dr. Oz show where Dr. Oz smells a woman’s breath and clearly taken aback by it. While it is a funny scene, and no doubt embarrassing for the woman, Dr. Oz does state that bad breath may be a warning sign of something else and is no laughing matter. It is definitely true that bad breath is not something to be ignored; it may be a symptom of one or more of the following conditions:

Dry mouth and gum disease are often linked to bad breath. This is because the volatile sulfur producing compounds in our mouth that cause bad breath thrive in a dry, anaerobic environment. When our mouths are full of healthy, oxygen-rich saliva, then it is harder for the bacteria to thrive and create bad breath. The best way to avoid dry mouth is to use oral care products that don’t contain alcohol (you may want to check your ingredient labels) and to keep hydrated, drinking plenty of water throughout the day. None of TheraBreath’s products contain alcohol of any sort and are ideal for maintain fresh breath.
