Why You Get Garlic Breath And How To Get Rid Of It

Garlic is one of the most flavourful things on the Earth, but it makes your breath smell like death itself died in your mouth. This video from Reactions explains what causes garlic breath and how to make it disappear.

The main cause of garlic breath is a chemical called allyl methyl sulphide, and it isn’t even present in garlic until it’s chopped or crushed. The worst part? The chemical goes right into your bloodstream and is excreted when you sweat, breathe and pee. To kill that gnarly mouth odour, Reactions suggests gnawing on some parsley or drinking milk. If garlic isn’t the problem, check out our guide on how to defeat bad breath once and for all.
