Coffee Will Help Get Rid of Breath Odor
Scientists from the Tel-Aviv University (Israel) discovered that coffee can help us rid of bad breath (halitosis). On one hand, brewed coffee can cause halitosis as it has a dehydrating effect in the mouth. However, there is a way to get rid of breath odor with the help of coffee.
The risk of halitosis is particularly high when milk is added to coffee, as milk is processed by the enzymes found in saliva. Yet, coffee extract has absolutely opposite effect – it inhibits the bacteria that cause bad breath; such bacteria cover over 90 per cent of the mouth. Now the scientists are trying to separate the active substance from the extract to use it as foundation for special anti-odor products.
