September 24, 2015 2 min read

Do you ever feel like no matter how well you brush, floss and swish mouthwash around, your breath still smells funky? You've cut out booze and garlic, but something's still lurking and you just can't put your finger on it. bad breath To ensure you rid yourself of the problem, you need to be aware that there are many factors besides the obvious that could be causing you to have bad breath. The typical cause is natural bacteria in our mouths, according to Sunil Wadhwa, associate professor of dental medicine and director of orthodontics at Columbia University. And the most effective way to avoid bad breath is to brush regularly and make sure you don't miss scrubbing your tongue and gums. Do all of the above and still have a problem? Cheryl Sobieraj, a dentist based in Connecticut, says you may be dealing with a bigger problem like post-nasal drip or a sinus infection. But if your funky breath is sticking around, try these tips to stifle it when you're in a pinch.

1. Water

Stay hydrated to avoid bad breath. “The saliva in your mouth actually prevents the release of gas,” Wadhwa says. “So anytime you have a dry mouth, more of the gas is released.”

2. Carrots or Celery

Watery veggies like these act like a toothbrush and clear your mouth of any debris that could buildup and promote bad breath. They also stimulate the production of saliva. “A lot of things we think cure bad breath are really just increasing your saliva, which helps,” Wadhwa says.

3. Tea

Prevent the growth of bacteria that causes bad breath by drinking black or green tea, which have chemical compounds called polyphenols that scientists have found to hinder that growth.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
