Breath Remedy - The Mouthwash Myth

October 4th, 2008 . by admin

Alcohol-free breath remedy works in paste, rinse and gel to neutralize obnoxious odor compounds to stop bad breath in both people and pets.

The bad breath from that cheeseburger with extra onions you had for lunch will linger for hours - if you let it. Nobody wants bad breath, that’s why big-brand dental product companies spend millions of dollars each year trying to sell you their breath-freshening products. For good oral hygiene and a true bad breath remedy, there are other alternatives.

Problem is, most of these heavily advertised products simply hide mouth odors - or worse yet, compound the problem - with moisture-robbing alcohol and short-lived flavor additives. To be effective a mouthwash must attack and neutralize volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), the rotten-smelling bacterial by-products mainly responsible for bad breath. Most commercial mouthwashes use alcohol - nearly 30 percent by volume in some cases - to actually kill the bacteria to try to stop bad breath, but is that the answer?

“The use of alcohol in mouthwashes is an ironically poor choice,” says Dr. Anthony Stefanou, D.M.D., a New York City dentist. “VSCs result from dead bacteria and epithelial cells. When alcohol is used to “kill the germs that cause bad breath” as touted by nationally advertised mouthwashes, those products may be fueling the carrier of bad breath by producing more dead bacteria! VSCs may also increase the permeability of the periodontal membrane, weakening the gums and making them more vulnerable to periodontal disease.”

You need to neutralize these odor-causing germs and bacteria through an oxidation process. This is most effective breath remedy to truly fight halitosis.


Oxygene, Oxyfresh’s long-lasting oxidizing compound, neutralizes these odor-causing germs and bacteria through an oxidation process. Thousands of health care professionals recommend Oxyfresh Dental Care Products to their patients, co-workers and families every single day.


Pet Bad Breath Also Needs Attention

Dental disease is the leading health issue in both dogs and cats over the age of two. Why? Because the pet owner has not been educated nor trained how to properly manage their pet’s oral hygiene.

If you never brushed your own teeth, how would your health be? Or how would you like to communicate with everyone else who also did not manage their own oral hygiene?

Many pets have lost a significant number of their adult teeth by the age of 8-10, developed kidney, heart and liver diseases because of the low grade systemic bacterial infections in the blood stream. Dental disease also challenges the immune system of pets to the point that their resistance is lowered and they are prone to more health issues.

Oxyfresh Pet Products help the animals you love to smell better, look better, and even live longer. Fight pet bad breath and pet odor with the Oxyfresh line of pet products.

I use World Organic Liquid Chlorophyll, they have it with and without a mint flavor. Yes just follow the instructions on the bottle, you can also just use it as a mouth rinse to strengthen your gums if needed. It taste pretty nasty, and be careful because it is really green and it can stain clothing. (It cost between $4-$8)

What is the most effective remedy to eliminate bad breath?

November 22nd, 2008 . by admin

First, find the source of the problem,then seek a dentist's advice on how to treat it well the dentist should be able to help to find the cause. Apart from improper brushing of both the teeth and tongue, bad breath could also be as a result not urinating when the bladder indicates the need and so this causes the bladder to stretch leaving residues of urine in the bladder even after one pees. Also bad breath can result when one eats a lot of spicey foods and don't floss,brush properly and gargle with an oral antiseptic wash. I could say more but first check with the dentist.

How do I remedy my dog’s bad breath?

November 1st, 2008 . by admin

My miniature Schnauzer’s breath is almost unbearable!!! He’s a great dog and as cute as can be but his breath is horrible. Any suggestions on how to safely cure his halitosis?
Tartar build up is very common in small breeds. They are also prone to having bad teeth and gingivitis. I have two poms and take them in regularly to get their teeth cleaned approximately every 2 years. I would strongly suggest to have your dogs teeth cleaned. It makes a world of difference!


There’s More to Pet Odor Than Just Bad Breath

October 30th, 2008 . by admin

Dogs naturally produce secretions to allow other dogs to recognize them. People do not always appreciate these aromas. Natural dog odors are most conentrated near their posterior, ears and around their footpads.

Dogs do not sweat. Dogs do however have sweat glands. They are associated with each group of hairs. These glands produce chemical signals for communication with other dogs.

Dogs also have sweat glands on the pads of their paws and on their noses that help keep them moist and healthly. On the paw pads, natural micro-organisms living in the surface layers contribute to the typical odor of dog paw pads. This odor is much more noticeable on dogs with moist paw pads than on those with dry pads.

Dogs also have numerous glands in their external ear canals. Together, these two sets of glands produce natural earwax. Micro-organisms live naturally in this material and give the ears a slight yeast odor even when healthy.

Dogs, like all carnivores, have two scent glands that communicate with the surface of the skin by ducts that open on either side of the anus. They produce a natural secretion that varies from thin and yellowish to pasty and grayish and with a very strong musty odor. A small amount of this material is normally deposited when dogs defecate and a large amount may be extruded when a dog is frightened. This secretion is thought to leave a signal to other dogs telling them who left fecal deposit. This odor is also the signal being sampled when strange dogs investigate one another by sniffing each other.

Another source of odor that can be considered natural results from a common dog behavior. Dogs like to roll in and mark themselves with some natural products of other animals, including fecal deposits of prey animals, such as rabbit droppings.

Just by following their own sense of adventure, pets can attract and hold onto unpleasant smells. With Oxyfresh’s powerful and safe Pet Deodorizer with Oxygene®, you can remove disagreeable odors from cages, furniture, litter boxes, carpets, curtains, bedding … wherever pet odors are a problem. This amazing product will generate compliments for both you and your pet!

Up to 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over the age of three suffer from periodontal disease — a serious deterioration of the gums and supporting bones of the teeth. Poor oral care allows bacteria to enter the bloodstream and infect the heart, liver and kidneys.

Pet Oral Hygiene Solution helps reduce plaque and tartar formation that can lead to life-threatening periodontal disease. In addition to promoting better health, you’ll enjoy your pets even more when they have fresh-smelling breath! Pet Oral Hygiene Solution is a tasteless, odorless solution with odor-killing Oxygene®. Simply add it to your pet’s drinking water to completely eradicate bad breath and promote healthy gums.

What is a good remedy for having fresh breath after having eaten onions?

October 25th, 2008 . by admin

What is a highly effective method for eliminating the nasty odor of onions after having eaten them? Is there an excellent mouthwash, toothpaste, or chewing gum out there that can make one’s breath smell fresh after eating anything strong smelling…i.e. tuna, salad with dressing, onions, etc? Typically, I avoid onions, garlic, etc. But occasionally, I like to eat them. What I usually do is brush my teeth about four times after the meal…it works, to an extent. But I don’t just brush my teeth- I also lightly brush my tongue as well. Any ideas or suggestions?
Eat fresh parsley

Stop Bad Breath Remedy - What Are The Most Effective Remedies To Stop Bad Breath?

October 18th, 2008 . by admin

1. The most effective treatment for bad breath is proper oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once daily. See your dentist to have cavities filled up promptly and any gum diseases (bleeding, gingivitis, etc.) rectified.

2. A dry mouth is more prone to bad breath than a moist mouth. Drinking plenty of water or chewing sugarless mints is helpful as it stimulates saliva production, keeping the mouth moist.

3. Onions, garlic, deli meats and some types of cheese are known to cause bad breath. Avoid them whenever possible to keep your breath fresh.

4. Look for a mouthwash containing thymol and eucalyptus oil. Both these ingredients are effective against the bacteria that cause bad breath. Also, avoid mouthwash and toothpaste containing the amino acid cysteine.

5. If you have chronic bad breath then include dietary supplements along with your food such as Vitamins C and E, zinc, coenzyme Q10, and folic acid. A baking soda rinse is another home remedy that works well.

There are a number of little-known ways you can both stop and cure bad breath permanently. Just keep a look out for the ones that work for you.
