How to Get Rid of Garlic Breath

After study participants took some garlic, researchers gave them whey protein, lemon juice, green tea, chlorophyll, 7UP soda, a raw pink lady apple, a cooked apple, parsley, spinach, and mint leaves. Which do you think worked best as a remedy for garlic breath?

    thank you

  • @PlantbasedSilvi says:

    As much as I love her recipes, all that garlic tastes good, bad breath can be eliminated, but how can you eliminate the stench of flatulence that you can’t necessarily keep up with as you get older? I want to keep eating garlic for my health. Who has a tip?

    • @SherryEllesson says:

      Please don’t assign flatulence to aging. It’s a false impression and many of us don’t have it.

    • @PlantbasedSilvi says:

      Sorry not all, but some one. My english is not the best, come from Europa.

    • @dianeladico1769 says:

      Your question and your English are just fine. Are you sure it’s the garlic? This is just my opinion so take it as such. There are two issues-flatulence and odor and they may have different causes and it’s possible neither are related to garlic. We all react differently to foods and our systems can absolutely change as we age. It may be that another food is causing the gas and the odor just comes with it. I’d start taking note of when you experience gas and if there’s an odor and relate that to recent meals along with any pain or distress you feel. If you can eliminate certain triggers from your diet and still eat healthy that solves your problem. If you can’t get relief then a visit to the doctor may be needed. You may have some condition that needs medical attention. Perhaps not but it’s good to rule it out. In that case, a list of foods that give you tummy troubles may help the doctor diagnose any conditions.
      Dr. Greger didn’t have a lot on his website specific to this but look up IBS for starters. Mostly he says to have a good fiber intake. If you increase fiber it may help to do it gradually. Most people adjust to changes after a short time.
      Wishing you good health.

    Thanks for the tips

    drink black coffee > coffee breath is preferrable

  • @BlissBlessHappiness says:

    Healthy people with plant based diets do not smell after eating durian… Many people eat Durian on top of beer and heavy meals, causing many problems – not just bad breath. Durian, as a meal, on an empty stomach causes no problems; only blessings.

  • @mchagawa1615 says:

    Fascinating! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  • @chunkysneakerz says:

    I’ve noticed using aged garlic (putting cloves in just 100% apple cider vinegar / quick pickling) cuts down as well as xylitol mints taken immediately after a meal

    Майкл Грегер, здравствуйте!! Сколько проростков или микрозелени льна и, брокколи можно употреблять в день без вреда организму?

  • @stavokg says:

    For years, I have eaten parsley to deodorize breath and body. If I notice any odor I eat a handful of raw parsley. It works every time.
