Aloe Vera and Bad Breath
Posted: August 27, 2009
Did you know that aloe vera is another natural remedy for bad breath? Of course. It is both a natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It helps protect the sensitive tissues in the oral cavity. Since aloe vera is already known to help skin, digestive problems, the immune system and overall well-being, it would make sense that it has dental health benefits as well.
Aside from maintaining good oral hygiene on a daily basis, you can also use aloe vera to help fight tooth decay. The mouth holds a lot of bacteria that can attack the teeth and gums, and lead to problems like stomatitis, gum disease, and bad breath.
Aloe vera works the best when it is working from inside the body; therefore, aloe vera supplements and juices are usually the most effective at fighting bad bacteria. Sometimes extra supplements can get pricy, so you might just want to stick with toothpastes/toothgels that have aloe vera in them. Not only will you be boosting your immunities, improving your skin's appearance, and aiding your digestion, you will also be helping your smile by fighting the onset of tooth decay and bacteria.
