Keep it clean, your breath, that is

If you drink coffee, smoke or eat spicy food regularly, you could suffer from halitosis, or chronic bad breath. That’s no way to treat a loved one on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

Dr. Harold Katz, founder of the website www.therabreath.com, offers a few ways to keep your breath fresh:

1-Drink plenty of water – the less dry your mouth, the fresher your breath.

2-Drink Tea instead of coffee.

3-Avoid sugar as much as possible. Sugar feeds the bad breath bacteria. Look for sugar free gum and mints.

4-If you’re going to eat chocolate, choose dark chocolate – less sugar and no dairy.

5-Look for fruits and vegetables that contain a lot of water such as celery, watermelon, strawberries or apples.

6-Avoid mouthwash that contains alcohol. It makes your mouth dry.
