Many bad breath remedies are just temporary fixes, or use ingredients that are ineffective after an hour or so. Some just mask the offensive odors with another odor, and some will make bad breath even worse. Most of them will fall short of the ultimate long lasting fresh breath guarantee that comes with Amazing Breath.

but this product WORKS!"*–Pam
Cheap mouthwashes containing alcohol may work at first by killing lots of germs. But the alcohol does not degrade the microscopic food particles the bacteria use as food sources. With their food supply untouched, the bacteria grow back rapidly. To make matters even worse, alcohol is a drying agent and can lower saliva levels. The absence of saliva (which contains antibacterial substances) allows bacteria populations to thrive. This is why your breath is never fresh for long using these types of mouthwashes.
When Amazing Breath's two patented solutions are combined, they release Oxidyne™, a powerful oxidizing agent that first kills odor causing bacteria, then degrades the bacteria’s food supply. Without a ready food supply, the bacteria cannot return in large numbers, leaving you with fresh breath that lasts all day and all night. This makes Amazing Breath the most effective bad breath remedy by far. In fact, Amazing Breath works so well that we guarantee ultimate long lasting fresh breath, or your money back!
Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide
Products with Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide as the key ingredient claim that they are activated by the acids that are present in the mouth. This supposed activation creates chlorine dioxide which then oxidizes the mouth. The claim is misleading because the pH of saliva is close to neutral and not able to activate the Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide. Without activation, chlorine dioxide is never formed and the mouthwash remains inert, never creating any oxidization. The never-activated Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide will have little (if any) antibacterial properties and no effect on the bacteria's food supply. As a rule of thumb, mouthwashes that claim to be activated must consist of two solutions that combine into one formula.
Zinc Chloride Mouthwash
Zinc chloride mouthwashes create zinc ions that bind to the protein receptors on bacteria, disallowing bad breath gases from being released. But the zinc does little, if anything, to kill the bacteria and nothing to deplete their food sources. Additionally, the zinc can leave a lasting metallic taste in the mouth and sometimes even alter the taste of food. In order for a mouthwash to provide the cleanest, healthiest odor-free environment in the mouth, it must kill anaerobic bacteria and regulate their numbers. Mouthwashes that do not inhibit the growth of the bacterial film that grows rapidly in the unreached areas of the mouth are an incomplete attempt at solving the problem.
Breath Mints, Sprays and Chewing Gum
'Breath freshening' mints and candies do nothing to actually kill and limit bacteria populations that cause bad breath. In fact, they often contain sugar which can contribute to the growth of even more oral bacteria. Breath sprays just temporarily mask bad breath, and their ingredients can dry out the mouth which will lead to an increase of odor causing bacteria. Chewing gums can increase salivary flow which helps regulate bacteria populations but otherwise they only mask bad breath for a short time. The peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon and other essential oils found in some of the gums, mints and sprays exhibit some antibacterial properties but have little to no effect in the end. The only beneficial thing about any of these products is they might help temporarily mask strong food odors such as garlic and onion. There are not any remedies that can actually get rid of these food odors, they can only be metabolized by the body over time.
Internal breath capsules claim to attack bad breath coming from the stomach. The problem is, according to well published scientific evidence, less than 1% of bad breath originates in the stomach. So for the vast majority of people, capsules will do nothing to get rid of bad breath. The overwhelming cause of bad breath is anaerobic bacteria releasing gases while feeding on microscopic food particles in the mouth.
