Halls

hey, i suffer from a terrible mouth breath , the kind u wish u were never born when u smell it , so i always consume "halls" cough syrup to improve my mouth breath , now the problem is , that im afraid that it will have some bad effects on my body , especially that iv been consuming it since years on daily basis.
the ingredients are:

-corn syrup
-spearmint
-menthol(4.1 mg)
-eucalyptus oil(3.7 mg per tablet)
-e102 and e133 colorants
I consume around 5 to 8 tablets a day.

thank you.

Re: Halls

You need to find the "cause" of the bad breath and not just try to cover it up.

The sinuses are usually guilty of causing bad breath.

Dental issues with gums is another cause. Try Listerine mouthwash, it kills germs.

Try irrigating sinuses with saline solution on regular basis and see if it helps. Here is a home solution you can make yourself. This was approved by my doctor:

1 cup boiling water

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon plain salt

Stir to dissolve, pour thru a clean paper coffee filter, fill a clean nasal spray bottle or similar. COOL. To use lie on bed on your back with head hanging off. Squirt a few squirts in each nostril, slowly turn head side to side, wait a little while. Say KKKKKKK while getting up to keep solution from running down your throat. Blow gently as needed.

Re: Halls

Only bad effect I can think of is tooth decay, from having sugar in your mouth all the time. And bad teeth would not improve your breath!

You could also try using 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash, many dentists recommend it.

Re: Halls

3% hydrogen peroxide comes in a brown bottle from the drugstore. Make sure it says 3%, no stronger, and rinse, don't swallow.

Re: Halls

Try brushing your tongue when you brush your teeth, since the tongue can harbor very large numbers of "bad breath" bacteria.
