While garlic may add a tasty touch to many dishes, few other foods cause such bad breath. Anyone who regularly indulges in cuisine that makes use of it may benefit from taking steps to improve their breath.
Thousands of devotees of the aromatic herb recently turned out for the City of Gilroy's 32nd annual Garlic Festival, according to Jaunted.com.
Festival organizers brought in an estimated 4,500 pounds of fresh garlic for the event, in addition to food prepared by vendors, which included Italian sausage, stuffed mushrooms and garlic fries, the news source reports.
While all this food may be a garlic lover's dream, it is more of a nightmare to anyone who is put off by bad breath. Garlic is extremely high in sulfur. This compound may add to the taste, but the stench of it often returns through the mouth of those who have eaten it.
Festival goers may have left with more than a full belly. In order to relieve bad breath caused by the sulfur in garlic - which can stay in a person's system for a surprisingly long time - they may benefit from TheraBreath's specialty breath freshening products.
