But Breath Appeal doesn't only just kill anaerobic bacteria; the activated sodium chlorite it contains also severely degrades the food particles and debris the bacteria use as a food source. Since the anaerobic bacteria cannot feed on the degraded particles, they are unable to return in large numbers. This results in consistently low levels of anaerobic bacteria which allows for incredibly long lasting odor free breath. This is how Breath Appeal is able to keep your mouth clean and fresh 24 hours a day.
Breath Appeal’s unique oxidizing formula reduces the number of anaerobic bacteria in your mouth by penetrating deep into the places they live and exposing them to oxygen. Anaerobes, by definition, cannot survive in oxygen rich environments, so they die.
How Breath Appeal Reduces
Anaerobic Bacteria Levels
Anaerobic bacteria can only live where there is little or no oxygen, so they bury themselves deep inside tiny crevices and ridges in the tongue, lips, cheeks and gums. As we age, we develop more of these crevices and ridges which provide more places for the bacteria to live. These places are often difficult, if not impossible to reach through conventional cleaning methods.
Bad breath, medically called halitosis, is caused by gases excreted from anaerobic bacteria as they feed on food particles and other debris inside your mouth. Normal amounts of these bacteria will hardly affect your breath at all, but too many can lead to bad breath and other serious problems. The key to eliminating bad breath is simply to reduce the number of anaerobic bacteria inside your mouth.
