Posted on 2/20/2020 by Robert Leale
How Parsley Can Help with Bad Breath ProblemsDoes your breath stink? There are a lot of people around you in the same boat. In fact, there are over 80 million people who are probably suffering from bad breath right now. It is one of the top three reasons people come to see us in the first place, right after tooth decay and gum disease.

If you have bad breath, we bet you are looking to cure that breath any way you can. We have a suggestion for you: parsley. If you don't know what parsley is, or why it might help your breath, we have some suggestions for you.

Why Do I Have Bad Breath?

To put it bluntly, people usually have bad breath because of what they eat. That's because bad breath is caused by bacteria in your mouth. There are bacteria in your mouth all the time. They're small and quiet, so you won't notice them.

However, when enough of them accumulate, they can cause your breath to smell less than minty-fresh. Depending on what you eat, your bad breath could be a slight annoyance, or it could be strong enough to bowl anyone over.

Why Parsley?

Parsley has been used for years as a natural remedy for bad breath. Researchers have said that parsley does two things for your mouth. First, it has a naturally fresh scent that seems to neutralize odors in your mouth. Second, parsley contains high levels of chlorophyll, which may work to combat the high sulfur content of bad breath.

Scientists who have been researching parsley as a bad breath fighter say that the effect of parsley is better if you chew on the leaves of parsley after every meal. Be sure that the parsley you are chewing on is fresh.
