Bad Breath during Ramadan? Here’s your Quick Fix

When you fast, bad breath gets worse.

Saliva being a natural mouthwash aids in washing bacteria and food from the mouth, creating a layer that prevents oral odours from escaping.  During your fast, there is little to no saliva at all hence these easy tips will come in handy

Have a big glass of lemon water as the last thing at sehri and the first thing after you break your fast. The citric acid in lemon kills bacteria

It’s equally important to keep your tongue clean, especially after a heavy iftar and sehri. Gently scrub your tongue with a tongue scraper twice daily as this will wipe off the bacterial biofilm and mucus.
