Kill Morning Breath, Just in Time for Valentine's Day

Kill Morning Breath, Just in Time for Valentine's Day

Do you suffer from morning breath? Don't lie... Everyone does.

What is bad breath anyway? Well at least 90-95% of all bad breath, also known as halitosis, is caused by certain bacteria, or germs, living in your mouth. These bacteria have amino acids that naturally exist in your saliva (and come from foods as well). These amino acids release sulfur gases as by-products and voila, you've got a stinky mouth.

It's rare that I come across oral hygiene products that impress me, mouthwash is mouthwash and toothpaste is toothpaste. However I just read about SmartMouth ($7.99 for 2 x 4 oz bottles), a new mouthwash, has been proven to help eliminate and prevent bad breath 24-hours a day when used regularly, twice a day. SmartMouth works by eliminating existing odors, preventing new odors from forming and creates an environment unfavorable for the bacteria that cause bad breath.

The best part in my opinion? You wake up in the morning without that nasty morning breath. Seriously. Why two bottles? SmartMouth requires that the two active ingredients be mixed together just prior to rinsing, (very high-tech sounding, eh?) but it's kind of annoying if you're low on bathroom space.

I have to say that my boyfriend has used many products for his bad breath. It has stood in the way many times of morning action =( We have tried Smart Mouth, BreathRx and even TheraBreath. To our amazment TheraBreath has worked the best... Now we have no problems with making out and a little morning action before I head off to school. I LOVE THERABREATH!!

The better choice is TheraBreath from Dr. Harold Katz. I have seen Dr. Katz conduct breath testing on The View, and also on the TV station News in Columbus, Ohio. He has a great web site: Unlike Smart Mouth, with TheraBreath there is NO MIXING!! TheraBreath uses a patented formula that eliminates ALL breath odors including baterial and food, and it also reverses dry mouth. TheraBreath has no alchohol and no artificial colors, I beleive that Smart Mouth does have artificial colors. TheraBreath has no saccharin, no aspratame, no sugar, no sodium, etc. TheraBreath is the best!!

Seems cool, I don't like that you have to mix it together yourself, I'm lazy. I'm supposed to keep cups in my bathroom for mixing stuff?
