If you always add extra garlic to recipes or order the garlic bread as an appetizer before getting your garlic pasta, you’re not alone. We’re garlic people too. And just like you, we suffer from terrible, stinky garlic breath after many of our meals. If you’ve been looking for the perfect remedy for this smelly problem, we have the answers for you. Try out these three foods to get rid of your garlic breath.

Green Tea

Green tea has many benefits, but one that’s less well-known is that green tea has antioxidants called polyphenols. These antioxidants help to cover up the chemicals in garlic that cause the odor we all know and hate.


Apples work in a similar way to green tea. The same enzymes that turn a sliced apple brown after being left to sit for a while actually helps to cover up bad smells, including that of garlic.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is a great defense against bad breath. The acid in the juice is able to neutralize the enzyme in garlic that causes our breath to stink. If you are suffering from smelly garlic breath, drink some lemon juice or bite into a lemon wedge and experience the magic.
