Chew cardamom for the care and relief of Bad Breath
Effectiveness: 3.4Popularity: 9
Why it works: Cardamom seeds have a warm, highly aromatic flavor, which have been widely used as a digestive aid and natural breath freshener in India. In addition, the major active component of cardamom oil, cineole, is a potent antiseptic known for killing the bacteria causing bad breath and other infections.
How it works: Slowly chewing one or two cardamom pods helps minimize bad breath. Do not buy decorticated (meaning the tiny, fragrant seeds were removed from the pod) cardamom seeds or break open the pod ahead of time. The seeds will quickly lose their flavor after you break open the pod.
