Three types of foods that make bad breath very bad
The smell from the mouth of a person can spoil different products, and some make it as unpleasant as possible. Dental doctor Harold Katz explained in an Express publication that such products can be grouped into three types.
The first type: products with sulfur. High content of volatile sulfur compounds differ onion, garlic and curry, writes MedicForum.
Volatile aromatic compounds from them remain in the mouth along with food microparticles, or are thrown into the esophagus from the stomach. A toothbrush, sugar-free chewing gum, or mouth freshener can solve this problem - but only temporarily.
The most unpleasant odor is ensured by the fact that onion-garlic compounds (thiosulfides) are absorbed into the blood and, as a result of gas exchange in the lungs, go out to “please” others.
The second type: protein products. Meat, beans, dairy products - all of them, according to the doctor, "are a favorite food source for bacteria in the human mouth." The higher the concentration of proteins in the product, the more intense the odor can be. Protein is a source of amino acids, which, under the action of anaerobic bacteria, are transformed into volatile sulfur compounds.
The third type: sour foods and drinks. These products negatively affect the oral mucosa and contribute to the violation of the acid-base balance. As a result, bacteria begin to multiply more actively, contributing to an unpleasant odor.
