cucumbers bad breath

This just in! As we have discussed before, there are various vegetables that can help stop bad breath. However, we have never discussed cucumbers stopping bad breath. That’s right– not only does a cucumber have Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc, but it also has properties that can combat halitosis.

Here’s what you can do: take a piece of cucumber, hold it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to cure halitosis. The phytochemicals in the cucumber will help kill the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath.
