Garlic may be okay for scaring off vampires, but don’t keep others from getting close to you this Halloween because of bad breath (halitosis).
Bad breath results from two key issues: oral hygiene and gastrointestinal health. Breath odors originate not just inside the mouth but also from your digestive tract. The offender in both cases is primarily bacteria.

What is xylitol?
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol sweetener widely used as a sugar substitute and low-calorie sweetener. Xylitol is found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, and can be extracted from various berries, oats and mushrooms, as well as fibrous material such as corn husks.
