Bad Breath of the Week – Garlic

Garlic stinks! – For your breath, not for your health. Don’t let the stench stop you. Now enjoy delicious and healthy dishes like salmon with garlic oil, and whole wheat spaghetti with broccoli, garlic and oil with no worry.

Garlic has healthy compounds that fight disease and we found many articles praising the health benefits of this stinky super food.* No doubt it’s great for your health, but the after effect can be a little anti-social. Garlic contains a substance called allicin which is responsible for the health benefits, but also breaks down into odiferous (smelly) sulfur compounds (similar to the sulfur compounds produced by the bacteria in your mouth).

Chlorine dioxide mouthwash to the rescue! Chlorine Dioxide is not just a masking agent – it is the master at combating sulfur compounds. Readers Digest reports that, “the most effective way to neutralize the ‘odiferous sulfur compounds’ in a food like garlic is to use a mouthwash with chlorine dioxide…” Read full article. 

So you can enjoy your favorite dishes with garlic. Just rinse your mouth afterwards with DioxiRinse, the first and the best Active Chlorine Dioxide Mouthwash. Garlic can stay in your body for a day or two, so keep rinsing!

Did you know – Garlic must be crushed, chopped, chewed or pressed to get its therapeutic benefits! To maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes, allowing time for the enzyme reaction to occur which produces the allicin. Heating above 140°F destroys the allicin, so eat it raw or add it to your dishes at the end of the cooking process.*
