Baking soda can be a powerful tool for whitening the teeth, and killing some odor causing bacteria. We are usually exposed to volatile, sulfur compound-producing bacteria, which can cause bad breath. These bad breath gases (VSCs), are not just offensive but are actually toxic, and they can promote the body’s attempt at self-protection, inflammation. VSCs also lead to the production of a protein called high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), known to be a promoter of heart disease and blood clots. It’s a great idea to add baking soda to your regimen, in order to get rid of this bacteria. Although baking soda is not enough to fight them without proper oral checkups from the dentist, it would sure help to eliminate odor to a large extent. This would surely boost your confidence when talking.
