How to get rid of malodorous breath associated with garlic consumption?

That is awesome that you are eating so much garlic.  It is really good for your joints and things like that.  I used to work with a guy that would take a garlic pill every day because he had stiff muscles and it would really help him a lot.  Eventually his wife made him stop taking the pill because she said he smelled really bad.  I think it is totally worth it to be able to move around well though.  

I personally eat a lot of onions and garlic and there are many times that I feel like it is coming out of my pores.  Luckily I am already married so I don't have to worry about trying to find a wife smelling like garlic.  You might try cardamom or bergamont.  I think those herbs are both supposed to be helpful with breath odor and things like that.  You could also try listerine mouth wash.  That stuff will take the paint off of a house.  Just be sure not to press your tongue against the roof of your mouth after you swish it around.  You might pass out from the pain!


Well, well well.... Aside from the obvious, brushing your teeth probably more than once, i don't know any other way, however, i have got a suggestion on how to avoid the malodorous breath with garlic consumption to start with.

Its a valuable trick i learnt from my bestie about a a year ago. 

Before you use the garlic in whatever dish you want them in, toast them int he oven for a while until they are golden brown. This not only reduces the strong smell. it also caramelizes the garlic and makes the garlic cloves sweet.  After this procedure, you can literally toast the garlic cloves right in your dish, without grating or smashing them whatsoever (if you wish). you can also  in as much quantity as you want, and if you choose to still smash the garlic then the process will be made easier after this as they are softened already so they will easily turn into a paste soon as you smash them My friends goes hard and puts a whole bunch of garlic in one dish. i feel this process also changes the taste of the garlic in the food and also reduces the strong garlic smell that comes through from the food. 

so this may not help in entirely eliminating the odor, but it will at least  reduce the smell of the garlic and possibly make you enjoy using garlic a little bit more. 


Drinking milk can help you prevent the garlic odour. Both fat-free and whole milk lowers the concentration of volatile odour-emitting compounds from garlic in the nose and mouth. Due to its higher fat content, whole milk is found to be more effective. Although drinking milk after eating a garlic-infused meal can still help, it has been found that drinking it during the meal will have better results.

Garlic is an excellent source of magnesium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and selenium and is reported to have many health benefits. It also contains a high amount of sulfur compounds, which are responsible for the characteristic odor and flavor of garlic, as well as bad breath.
