Home Remedies for Bad Breath


View in Hindi

The easiest way to lose friends is having a bad breath. When you see people turning away while you talk to them – keep your palm close to your mouth and inhale the breath you blow out. You will be the best judge.

Causes for Bad Breath:
  • Bad dental hygiene is one of the main reasons of bad breath. When food particles are stuck between tooth cavities they can smell bad.

  • Gum disease-gingivitis- is also a major cause and a dentist should be consulted at the earliest.

  • Certain food that contains strong pungent seasoning with onions and garlic cause a bad breath.

  • At times when the mouth has been closed for very long the bacteria grows and begins to stink.

  • Fasting causes bad breath.

  • Constipation and an upset stomach also cause bad breath.
