94% of Americans Don’t Know What Causes Bad Breath
We recently surveyed over 20,000 Americans* and learned an astonishing fact: Only 6% of those surveyed know what really causes bad breath!
What Is the Main Culprit of Bad Breath?
Your mouth is full of different germs. How are these germs creating bad breath? Germs in your mouth feast on the protein that is in your saliva and the resulting product is sulfur gas. It’s sulfur gas, more specifically, Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSCs), that causes bad breath.
Let Us Break That Down For You America.
The germs in your mouth are the ones creating the bad breath problem. But it won’t help to simply kill the germs because they just come back when you eat or drink anything and they multiply quickly. That is why some mouthwashes only keep your breath fresh for 3 hours or less.
The Real Science to Stopping Bad Breath
SmartMouth contains an activated zinc ion solution that packs a one-two punch for germs producing VSCs. The sulfur eliminating solution destroys sulfur gases present in your mouth. The zinc ion activated solution blocks germs from consuming protein particles in your mouth. So you get fresh breath immediately and for the next 12 hours. One rinse in the morning and one rinse in the evening is enough to keep bad breath away for up to 24 hours.
How Does Bad Breath Affect You?
According to our survey, 1 in every 3 surveyed has had bad breath ruin a relationship or hurt their self-esteem. Bad breath can lead to breakups, no callbacks, no second dates, and even a bruised ego or low self-esteem.
Over 20% of those surveyed wonder daily if their breath stinks. Every day these people wake up, go to school or work, visit their friends and family and think, “Does my breath stink?”.
According to our results, more than half of those surveyed don’t know how to talk about bad breath. It can be difficult to tell someone they have bad breath and even more embarrassing to learn that you are the one with bad breath. But everyone has germs in their mouth. So someone needs to speak up.
Or maybe you just need to try SmartMouth and let that do the talking for you.
