Let's face it, bad breath stinks! It's just not fun to be around it, let alone have it! Less commonly known as halitosis, there are many common theories as to what causes it and how to cure it. Here's one for you - So, if your mouth tastes minty from a breath mint or mouthwash, then your bad breath is under control, right? WRONG-O. The minty flavor of most toothpastes, mints or mouthwashes masks and only exacerbate the problem because the sugar they contain helps the bacteria to breed.
Dr. Harold Katz, the founder of TheraBreath products, has helped over a million people worldwide cure chronic bad breath. His products attack the Anaerobic Sulfur-Producing Bacteria which breed WITHIN the tongue's surface and throat. He is affectionately known as the Bad Breath Guru and has been on shows like The View and CBS Early Show to share his knowledge. I was able to give 3 of these products a try and I really like them A LOT!
The first product that I tried was the TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Fresh Breath Lozenges in Madarin Mint Flavor. Each lozenge is individually wrapped and packs a breath freshening punch that leaves me confident as I talk to my students as I'm helping them with their work or after I've eaten a salad with plenty of onions, garlic-based dressing, peppers, etc. Whatever is thrown in my path, I won't be worried breath-wise if I've taken one of these babies.
The next product is the TheraBreath Oral Rinse. This tastes, to me, like a weak version of hydrogen peroxide with some mild flavoring. But apparently, this is their best-selling product because of how well it controls chronic bad breath, aggressively attacking the odor-causing bacteria. So thumbs up, baby! A GAL NEEDS...to have her breath fresh at all times.
The last product I got to try is the TheraBreath Toothpaste. This is for people who really know that they have a problem. The toothpaste has no sugar, so it doesn't taste like candy, that's for sure. It's definitely for people who want to do something effective to get their breath under control. My teeth felt really clean and smooth after using this toothpaste. I got accustomed to the absence of sugar in the toothpaste and prefer it now to the sugary brands.
Some good news for you is that one of you will be set up with your own TheraBreath toothpaste and mouthwash! You will be able to see for yourself how great your breath can be, like I did!
