The main cause of bad breath is bacteria.
Date: 5 February 2014.
Certain types of bacteria give off foul smelling odours, this is a normal process of their life.
Usually, only a small number of bacteria colonize in your mouth -- but when their numbers grow high enough their presence becomes known by the bad odour of your breath.
Bad breath usually originates in your mouth, about 85% of the time. Since it gets a regularly supply of food, the bacteria get all the nourishment they need - and under the right conditions the bacteria population grows rapidly.
Bad breath also originates from further back than your mouth. But we will cover that later.
How you can get rid of bad breath originating in your mouth.
Just get rid of the bacteria - simple.
Well, maybe not always that simple. What you want to do is to get rid of the cause, not the symptom!
That's right. Get rid of the bacteria, and the symptom will go!

OK. First follow normal oral hygiene rules.
- 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 most 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.
- Buildup of plaque on teeth can cause gum disease.
- Poorly fitting dentures.
- Yeast infections in the mouth.
- Dental caries.
- Xerostomia (also known as Dry Mouth and Morning Breath), can also cause bad breath. The saliva in your mouth moistens and cleans your mouth by neutralizing acids produced by plaque, and it washes away dead cells that accumulate in your mouth. If these cells are not removed, they decompose and the resulting bacteria causes bad breath.
How Probiotics Get Rid of Bad Breath.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria that keep your body healthy.
Probiotic actually means "for life"- pro + bios = "for life".
Probiotics improve the balance of flora in your digestive system.
Most people know the benefits of Probiotics in improving digestion and your immune system. But Probiotics can benefit you far beyond your digestive system.

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.
