The chances are quite high that either
you, or someone close to you, suffers from halitosis (chronic bad breath).
Although the condition is preventable, it is estimated that over 90 million
Americans currently suffer from this dreaded problem.In our society,mentioning
that someone has bad breath is considered taboo. Its an uncomfortable problem
that brings on feelings ofembarrassment and personal insecurity.
Additionally, people fail to develop an
understanding of the many factors influencing halitosis. Many individuals
neglect treating bad breath internally, where it really needs to be treated.
They often rely on cleverly marketed toothpastes, rinses, and other dental
devices to end their nagging breath issue. However, these practices are often
ineffective at permanently treating the issue.
defined as having stale, or foul-smelling breath. However, chronic bad breath is
a much more complex than this simple definition. There are a lot of internal and
external factors that influence the development of this “stinky” problem.
Some of the conditions leading experts suggest that
normal anaerobic sulfur-producing bacteria that live within the surface of the
tongue and throat are to blame, while others believe that certain digestive
irregularities and improper diet are the main culprits. Whatever its origin, one
thing can be agreed upon; the road to fresh breath begins with oral hygiene and
ends with how well you take care of yourself on the inside.
The American Dental Association stands by the
theory that diet (i.e. what you consume) directly impacts how your breath smells.
In fact they even say that, “what you eat affects the air you exhale.” We have
all encountered garlic or onion breath, so this does make sense. Once food is
digested, it’s broken down and assimilated within the body, where it is then
absorbed by the bloodstream. This blood eventually reaches the lungs and is used
for exhalation processes. Again, toothpastes, mouthwashes, and lozenges only
mask this problem.
Neglecting oral care can also contribute to poor or
foul-smelling breath. If we do not floss and brush daily, food particles remain
between our teeth. What’s more, this left-over food can collect on the tongue,
gums, and even on the surface of the teeth, collect bacteria, and begin to rot.
This decay also influences how well your breath smells to others.
Volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), derived from
anaerobic sulfur producing bacteria, have also been found to cause bad breath.
Interestingly, these bacteria are naturally-occurring organisms found within the
oral cavity and throat. They assist us in specialized processes, including
digestion. However, when these bacteria come in contact with certain compounds
obtained from food (i.e. amino acids), sulfuric compounds are released from the
back of throat and tongue. Thus, it is important to adjust dietary standards to
prevent these volatile sulfur compounds from becoming odorous.
Some people, especially those with chronic bad breath,
seem to have higher numbers of these odor-causing bacteria. Other theories
regarding the cause of halitosis include hormonal changes, history of medication
use (e.g. antibiotics), and even genetic predisposition.
The number one risk factor for unpleasant odors and taste in the
mouth (other than immediate food consumption) is poor oral health care. Without
regular and proper brushing and flossing, food particles will remain in the
mouth. As well, routine examinations by your dentist are equally critical in the
pursuit of fresh breath.
Your dentist can remove gum and plaque that regular brushing and flossing
cannot remove. Poor oral health also includes failing to clean dentures, as food
and bacteria can cling to these structures much like real teeth. Other major
- Post Nasal Drip, or problems with the
sinuses: Mucus draining down the back of the throat and tongue, where sulfur
producing bacteria thrive, may cause bad breath. Scientists suggest that because
mucus is made of interlinked strands of protein, and proteins contain amino
acids that contain sulfur compounds, the naturally-occurring bacteria break down
the mucus protein and release VSCs (volatile sulfur compounds), which are said
to smell like rotten eggs.
- High Protein Foods: Again, anaerobic
sulfur producing bacteria love proteins. What’s more, some 70% of all Americans
suffer from lactose intolerance. Because these individuals fail to digest the
various milk-based proteins efficiently, the bacteria have a longer ‘window’ to
break the milk protein’s amino acid structure down.
- Coffee and Tobacco Use: Coffee contains
extremely high levels of acids that cause a bitter taste in the mouth and make
breath ‘sour’. Additionally, coffee’s high acidity means that when it’s
consumed, the anaerobic bacteria responsible for bad breath reproduce much
faster. Acidity is paralleled to lower oxygen levels. Thus, any food high in
acid will likely promote the reproduction of these odor causing organisms to
increase. Tobacco smoke and smokeless tobaccos also contribute to bad breath and
put one at a greater risk for developing periodontal disease, a decreased sense
of taste, and gum irritation.
- Dry Mouth (xerostomia): Dry mouth is a
primary contributor to halitosis. Dry mouth is characterized by decreases in
natural saliva production. This is extremely detrimental to oral health because
the mouth is unable to cleanse itself and remove any remnants left from foods
that we consume. Additionally, our saliva is oxygen-rich, and helps to keep
sulfur producing bacteria under control.
The majority of cases of dry mouth are caused
naturally (e.g. breathing through the mouth too often). However, prescription
medications, antihistamines, and alcoholic beverages can also influence saliva
- Underlying Medical Conditions: Bad
breath can be an indicator or symptom of another more serious disease or acute
condition. These may include;
(nose, windpipe, or lungs)
Chronic Bronchitis, or
Liver or kidney disorders
Although Clorial cannot address bad breath caused by
an underlying medical condition, it can help with all other major risk factors.
Many individuals suffering from halitosis exhaust all options in their quest to
manage their problem; primarily relying on their dentist’s recommendations. They
are advised to use tongue scrapers, antimicrobial mouthwashes, and to receive
regular dental check-ups.
However, the majority of individuals with
halitosis will still suffer the personal and professional ramifications caused
by irregular breath odor. What they fail to realize is that their answer relies
on treating the problem from the inside, instead of on the surface.
Supplementing with Clorial ensures that oral
health issues are addressed internally; keeping bad-breath causing bacteria
- Antioxidants and vitamins, including CoQ10,
Folic Acid, and vitamin C, assist in maintaining and improving
the health of the gums.
- Xylitol and Peppermint Oil aid
in reducing dental decay, while providing increases in salivation.
- Lactoferrin may be Clorial’s most
important weapon. A naturally-occurring compound, Lactoferrin has been shown
in various clinical trials to inhibit sulfur-producing bacteria and prevent
the ability for these bacterium to use iron for growth; instead binding and
destroying the bacteria and, subsequently, preventing them from releasing
- Finally, the potent botanicals Thyme
and Eucalyptus have been included for their antibacterial,
antimicrobial, and antifungal activity.
