The Best Mouthwash is One that Neutralizes Odor Naturally

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Use a common, alcohol-based mouthrinse, and you may find that your bad breath does not go away over time – or worse, that it slowly intensifies. At TheraBreath, we understand this problem. We believe that the best mouthwash is one that neutralizes halitosis naturally while moistening your mouth and keeping its pH balanced.

If you believe that irritation caused by alcoholic mouthwashes is an uncommon occurrence, think again. Numerous studies have  addressed the connection between canker sores and the synthetic chemicals found in typical oral rinses. Likewise, plenty of consumers complain about the ineffectiveness of these products.

For instance, in a recent letter to the UK Telegraph’s LifeCoach column, a reader noted that they suffer from chronic halitosis, even though they clean their teeth regularly. Nutritionist Sara Stanner responded that the best mouthwash, toothpaste and dental care regimens in general are those that promote oral moisture.

She emphasized that merely stimulating natural salivation can reduce the level of bad breath. At TheraBreath, we go one step further by providing products with natural ingredients that both encourage and preserve the production of moisture in the mouth.

Consider the new TheraBreath PLUS Oral Rinse, an oxygenating formula mouthwash containing zinc, tea tree oil, green tea, aloe vera, xylitol and mint oils. These substances do wonders for bad breath by attacking oral microbes and neutralizing their odor compounds.

Aloe Vera and Bad Breath

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Did you know that aloe vera is another natural remedy for bad breath?  Of course.  It is both a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.  It helps protect the sensitive tissues in the oral cavity.  Since aloe vera is already known to help skin, digestive problems, the immune system and overall well-being, it would make sense that it has dental health benefits as well. 

Aside from maintaining good oral hygiene on a daily basis, you can also use aloe vera to help fight tooth decay.  The mouth holds a lot of bacteria that can attack the teeth and gums, and lead to problems like stomatitis, gum disease, and bad breath. 

Aloe vera works the best when it is working from inside the body; therefore, aloe vera supplements and juices are usually the most effective at fighting bad bacteria.  Sometimes extra supplements can get pricy, so you might just want to stick with toothpastes/toothgels that have aloe vera in them.  Not only will you be boosting your immunities, improving your skin’s appearance, and aiding your digestion, you will also be helping your smile by fighting the onset of tooth decay and bacteria.
