Bad breath can come from gum disease, tooth decay, heavy metal buildup, nose or throat infection, improper diet, constipation, smoking, diabetes, foreign bacteria in the mouth, indigestion, inadequate protein digestion, liver malfunction, postnasal drip, stress and too much unfriendly bacteria in the colon.  

Handling these situations will handle the bad breath.   Here are some things that can help.

Gum disease in a major factor, and can be read about here.

Avoid spicy foods, and foods like anchovies, blue cheese, camembert, garlic, onions, pastrami, pepperoni, Roquefort cheese, salami, and tuna which can leave oils in the mouth that can release odor.  Beer, coffee, whiskey and wine leave residues that stick in the soft, sticky plaque on teeth and get into the digestive system.

Avoid food that get stuck between the teeth easily or that can cause tooth decay.  

Brush your teeth and tongue after every meal. 

Replace your toothbrush every month, as well as after any infections disease, to prevent bacteria buildup.

Trace Minerals

Trace minerals are involved in millions of chemical reactions in our bodies. Enzymes, those tiny proteins, which break down food, build our body tissues and take waste out all require trace minerals to function. Trace minerals are needed in DNA replication and repair. Trace minerals are becoming more deficient in our food supply and soils.

Digest Formula

The importance of stomach acids has not been focused on enough. The correct pH (acid level) for the stomach should be between 1 to 3. This is VERY acidic, but is necessary to break down proteins, collagen, absorb minerals (calcium, iron, magnesium, etc.) and B12 as well as to help kill off unfriendly microbes before entering the intestines. A strong acid stomach is also necessary to help release bile from the liver and enzymes from the pancreas.

Gallbladder Formula

Gallbladder Formula contains natural ingredients to help break down gallstones and provide bile salts for bloating and digestive stress.

This product has a blend of gallbladder targeted nutrients to thin bile, reduce digestive stress, break down stones and improve the digestion of fats. Most digestive drugs work by reducing acid and this natural product enhances the bile, a commonly omitted factor.
