July 16, 2020

The 6 August is National Fresh Breath Day. It’s observed annually to appreciate oral hygiene and the importance it plays in a person’s life.

Dentists and oral care professionals dedicate this day to fighting bad breath and all the other diseases associated with it.

Follow these tips to ensure your breath is always minty fresh:

1.      Eat a low-carb diet balanced with fats and proteins

2.      Remember to eat your vegetables

3.      Snack on apples or any other crunchy, healthy foods

4.      Drink at least one and a half litres of water a day

5.      Drink more green tea or rooibos tea and less coffee and English tea

6.      Chew on fresh mint leaves or parsley

7.      Take a daily probiotic supplement

8.      Brush at least twice a day and floss every single day

9.      Clean and brush your tongue and cheeks daily

10.  Rinse with alcohol-free mouthwash that contains a zinc compound
