Are you ever worried about your breath? If you are, you may know that there are a few things that may help you. For instance, you should know that brushing and flossing your teeth daily will help you enjoy fresh breath. You may also know that mouthwash can help you cover your bad breath. However, would you be surprised to hear that there are also some foods that will help your breath?

For instance, eating can lead to bad breath. When you eat, small food particles will be left on your teeth, which can help bad bacteria grow. However, saliva can carry this bad bacteria away—and foods such as celery and apples can promote this saliva flow. Chewing sugarless gum can also promote saliva flow. Furthermore, mint-flavored gum can also cover your bad breath.

A few other foods will help your breath stay fresh, including cranberries, parsley, and lemons. Studies have also shown that different dairy products can strengthen your teeth because they’re good sources of calcium. Furthermore, these dairy products can help you balance acids in your mouth that could also cause bad bacteria.
