Bad breath can be very difficult to eliminate. There are numerous pastes and liquids exist on the market and they promise to help, but they can be quite expensive in general and are also full of chemical products.
So, here, we are going to present you a natural remedy that will help you destroy bad breath once and for all!

The origins of bad breath are not mysterious: dental cavities, gum disease, poor oral hygiene, coated tongue (a white or yellow coating on the tongue, usually due to inflammation) are among the most common.
Hundreds of bacteria live in our mouths and some of them—on the tongue or below the gum line or in pockets created by gum disease between gums and teeth, for example—create sulfurous smells.
Other causes may include malnutrition (fat breakdown gives your breath a fruity odor), uncontrolled diabetes, and dry mouth (saliva has an antimicrobial effect).
Infections such as a sore throat or sinusitis, or intestinal disorders, such as heartburn, ulcers, and lactose intolerance, also result in bad breath.
