Treatment for Keto Breath

Although extremely popular, the Keto diet has a major drawback in that it can cause bad breath. Keto breath (as it has been dubbed) is caused by the low-carb diet and results in an acetone- or ammonia-like odour.

Fortunately, the condition is treatable if not preventable. A top dentist recommends:

– Stimulate production of saliva with gum and sweets containing xylitol (a natural alcohol found in plants)

– Drink plenty of water

– Snack on herbs like parsley, cinnamon and clove

Brushing teeth “at least twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash” is also very important in combating Keto breath and further advice can be found at
