Do Breath Mints, Mouthwashes And Gums Work


Popular over the counter breath mints gums and candies only temporarily freshen breath because they contain ingredients like sugar which help to increase the

Zox breath fresheners contain no sugar but a natural sweetener called Xylitol. Zox breath fresheners also contain Zinc Gluconate which helps to neutralize VSC
