halitosis cause, I: bacteria in the mouth, set d

OK. I dropped off the face of the Earth for 2 weeks. Deadlines in Real Life interferred with the fantasy. But I’m back now. On with the Neem Adventure. For now, the continuation of Help for halitosis. I WILL be back tomorrow!  : ]

Environment of Halitosis 
There must be a reason why one mouth is prolific with halitosis bacteria, and why another mouth is not. The presence of halitosis and sulfurous odor-causing bacteria is a matter of environment. Things to consider when battling halitosis and the bacteria that causes halitosis: diet, sugar intake, exercise, vitamin deficiencies, yeast / candida albicans, PH, toxic-load, medications, and the presence of heavy metals. Some experts even suggest blood-type as being a determining factor in who contracts halitosis. But since that’s not something we can affect, let’s deal with what we can.

Halitosis and Vitamins
If you have halitosis, make sure that you’re taking a vitamin supplement; although it would be much better to get the majority of your vitamins through food sources. Vitamins found effective in battling halitosis include Zinc, CoQ10, folic acid. Zinc is especially critical, because it’s been shown to have a direct dampening effect on the sulfurous bacteria found in halitosis (it’s also recommended for acne problems). You’ll frequently find Zinc in toothpaste and mouthwash, for this exact effect on the bacteria causing halitosis. Selenium, Vitamin C and Vitamin E have also recommended to improve halitosis.
