Mint This Idea

If you take zinc -- in lozenges or mouthwashes -- when you have a cold, try also using it when you feel better.

Zinc helps reduce bad breath.

According to the French journal Revue De Stomatologie Et De Chirurgie Maxillo-Faciale, the main cause of chronic bad breath -- not just the type you get after eating garlic -- is a group of compounds that contains sulfur.

Because zinc binds to sulfur, it seems mouthwashes, gum and toothpaste that contain zinc can help reduce bad breath better than mints or most other compounds.
