Kill Bad Breath Bacteria With FloraFood Probiotics.
The main cause of bad breath is bacteria.
Some bacteria give off foul smelling odours as a normal by-product of their life.
Normally, there are only a small number of bacteria in your mouth -- but sometimes their numbers grow high enough to make their presence known.
That’s when bad breath happens.
About 85% of the time bad breath originates in your mouth. Since it is regularly filled with food, the bacteria get as much nourishment as needed - and, under the right conditions the bacteria proliferate.
Bad breath, to a lesser degree, also originates from further back than your mouth. But we will cover that later.
How To Get Rid of Bad Breath Originating in Your Mouth.
Just get rid of the bacteria - simple.
Well, maybe not quite that simple. You will want to get rid of the cause of the bacteria build up. That's right. Get rid of the cause not the symptom!
- Brush and floss regularly - at least twice daily.
- Drink plenty water, 5 or six glasses a day.
- After eating, or drinking anything but plain water, drink a few mouthfuls of water - swish the water around your mouth before swallowing it.
That will remove the bulk of the food in your mouth that bacteria thrives on.
But most times that isn't enough. There are other sources of bad breath in your mouth.
- Gum disease, caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth.
- Poorly fitting dental appliances
- Yeast infections of the mouth.
- Dental caries.
- Dry mouth (also known as xerostomia) also known as morning breath, can also cause bad breath. Saliva moisten and cleanses your mouth by neutralizing acids produced by plaque, and it washes away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If not removed, these cells decompose and the bacteria causes bad breath.
How Probiotics Get Rid of Bad Breath.
Probiotics are the friendly bacteria, they keep your body healthy and vital.
The word probiotic actually means "for life"- pro + bios = "for life".
Probiotics improve the balance of flora in your digestive system.
Most people know of the benefits of probiotics for improving digestion and the immune system. But probiotics have benefits far beyond the digestive system.
Recently there has been an explosion of reports of probiotics being used in oral hygene.
Probiotics will control the plaque and bacteria in your mouth.
What happens is:- the probiotic replenishes the good bacteria in your mouth, displacing the bad plaque-causing bacteria that causes bad breath. The probiotic will keep your mouth bacteria balanced and healthy.
Probiotic for oral care will clean up your mouth of harmful bacteria and support gum and tooth health and naturally freshen your breath.
Just swish some FloraFood probiotics around your mouth and feel the effect.

The Australian Dental Association says if you've ruled out dental decay and infections as the cause of bad breath, probiotics are definitely worth a look.
Dr. Harold Katz, founder of The California Breath Clinics and the author of The Bad Breath Bible, notes that, “Probiotics are able to reduce halitosis by muscling out harmful (and halitosis-producing) bacteria with strains that will not produce oral odors.” (1)
Dr. Katz refers to a Swedish study when he explains that only a small number of people—as few as 10 to 20%—actually have active amounts of beneficial mouth bacteria.
In 2011, the Indian Journal of Dental Research observed that periodontal disease management is moving away from the antibiotic model, placing more attention on the use of probiotics and prebiotics. (2)
Many of these beneficial mouth bacteria are the same lactic acid bacteria that benefit the gut. As it turns out, when we eat probiotics we are not only helping out our gut—we are also making our breath a little sweeter.
