Leading expert on bad breath confirms through science what he's known for years: Natural mint leaf oils are the natural enemy of "garlic breath."
Dr. Harold Katz, creator and founder of TheraBreath, was recently interview on NBC's "Today" show about his research into mint leaf oils and Catechins; the two primary ingredients in his top-selling mouth rinse, TheraBreath PLUS.
The interview was a result of a recent study that showed mint leaf oil and the natural phenols and antioxidants contained in green tea are very effective against bad breath. These phenols and antioxidants, once extracted from the green tea, are called Catechins.
The study, published in the September Issue of the Journal of Food Science, found that when paired together, these natural ingredients are especially effective at combating stubborn garlic breath, eliminating it at a rate of up to 75%!
Widely recognized as one of the toughest odors to combat, garlic not only remains in the mouth after consumption, but also enters through the lungs and into the blood stream, causing garlic-tinged sweat. "People often try to kill garlic breath by brushing their teeth and rinsing their mouths out with alcohol-based mouthwashes," Said Dr. Katz, "Not only are both of those methods futile in battling garlic breath, but they also could exacerbate traditional bad breath by drying out the mouth. Saliva is nature's way of keeping your breath fresh!"
