1) Scrape Your Tongue - I bet you probably spend more time cleaning your ass than your tongue. Think about that! Your tongue is the largest organ in your mouth. You need to care for it like you care for your iPhone. Another crazy thing that tongue scraping does is it allows for your body to produce more Nitric Oxide which helps blood circulation in your body which allows your lungs and immune system to be healthier which could help fight off any viruses coming your way. Moral of the story - scrape your tongue every morning and night and you'll see an incredible effect on your breath and your health.
2) STOP smoking - all of that smoke and nicotine residue seeps into the pores of your tongue. Then they throw a big bacteria party and release nasty odors into the air. Usually the people around you are the victims, but now it’s all coming back to you while you wear a mask. Realistically, at this point if you’re still smoking then you probably don’t really care for the smell - but did you know that smokers are more likely to get COVID 19. The WHO says that tobacco smoking is a known risk factor for many respiratory infections and increases the severity of respiratory disease. If there was ever a time to put down the JUUL or the cigarette then it is now. Just do it.
3) Eat your Fruits & Veggies - If you’re staying home and not eating out during these times then you should be stocking up on healthy fruits and vegetables to snack on throughout the day. Delta Dental says that these foods step up your saliva flow between meals to help wash away bacteria in your mouth that can cause bad breath. If you’re eating fruits and veggies then you’re probably staying away from naughty foods that can do harm to your body. Your diet is a key factor to the health of your immune system. Eat healthy and you’ll be healthy!
