Tea Fights Bad Breath
Is it true that tea fights bad breath? I guess you'll just have to read and find out for yourself.
As you know, there are a huge variety of health benefits of tea that are enough to keep you drinking it daily. But what about more "uncommon" health benefits, such as what goes on in your mouth after drinking a cup of tea?
In a study performed at Pace University, researchers concluded that drinking tea has many benefits in "freshening up the mouth".
The health benefits of tea in your mouth include killing bacteria and fighting off viruses.
By killing off these harmful bacteria you can reduce your chances of getting strep throat, tooth decay, and yes, you can even kill the bacteria that makes your breath smell bad!
The researchers concluded that this killing of the bacteria was caused by the now famous polyphenols that tea contains.
These super antioxidants do many things to help the body stay healthy, many of which involve killing off things like bacteria and viruses that make us sick and feeling lowsy.
I have to say, I think it works because right now everyone around me is sick and I'm not. Do you think the health benefits of tea are working in my favor?
Now, I'm not saying that you don't have to brush your teeth or use mouthwash just because you drink tea. That's still important.
The study found out that if they put tea on the bacteria in petri dishes, it inhibited growth by about 30% and "reduced the production of compounds that cause bad breath".
The fact that tea fights bad breath is just one more reason to start drinking it. There are many other benefits, as you probably know if you've read this website - so start now!
