TheraBreath was the only oral hygiene product tested in a laboratory trial that continued to eliminate halitosis beyond 12 hours.

A research study conducted by a certified laboratory in 2011 regarding the efficacy of TheraBreath Oral Rinse found that the incidence of bad breath experienced by 30 subjects immediately and significantly improved after using the product and remained effective 12 hours and 15 minutes following a single use of TheraBreath Oral Rinse. Research results also stated that TheraBreath was the only oral hygiene product tested in a laboratory trial that continued to eliminate halitosis beyond 12 hours.
This controlled test involved 22 females and 8 males for a total of 30 subjects ranging from 23 to 69 years old. A trained technician used a device called a Halimeter® to measure the severity of the halitosis before and after subjects rinsed with TheraBreath Oral Rinse. Halimeters are instruments capable of measuring the amount of volatile sulfur compounds existing in the mouth. These compounds, known as VSCs, are primarily responsible for the foul odors comprising bad breath.
Bad breath is measured using a halimeter according to rates of "parts per billion", or ppbs. When bad breath is nonexistent, readings that range between 80 to 140 ppbs will appear on a halimeter's gauge device. Starting at level 200, bad breath is detectable by someone standing within two to three feet of the person suffering from halitosis. The accuracy of a halimeter relies on its chromatographic ability to measure levels of hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan in the mouth, two extremely foul-smelling gases that are primary contributors of halitosis.
According to statistically significant results emerging from this research study, TheraBreath Oral Rinse improved malador in all 30 subjects by 100 percent after one application. Subjects' VSC content were reevaluated following a 12 hour and 15 minute break from the study, which showed that 83 percent of the participants still exhibited improvement of their bad breath.
A final test of the subjects' breath using a halimeter was performed a full 24 hours after a single application of TheraBreath Oral Rinse. Remarkably, nearly 55 percent of the subjects were still showing continuing improvement in reducing the amount of volatile sulfur compounds in the mouth.
A combination of special, patented ingredients formulated by bacteriologist and dentist Dr. Harold Katz is the driving force behind the effectiveness of TheraBreath's Oral Rinse at eliminating halitosis for up to 24 hours following just one application. Eschewing desiccants such as alcohol and sodium lauryl sulfate, Dr. Katz instead uses ingredients that stimulate saliva flow and enrich the mouth with oxygenating molecules, a dynamic preventative that generates a healthy oral environment deadly to anaerobic bacteria, the producers of VSCs.
Subjects in the study who continued to show improvement 24 hours after rinsing once with TheraBreath Oral Rinse were experiencing the benefits of sufficient saliva flow, a process enhanced by Dr. Katz's unique oral rinse formula. Saliva contains antibacterial properties that not only kill anaerobic bacteria but also helps regulate the oral pH level, prevents food particles from adhering to teeth and aids in inhibiting the accumulation of mucus in the back of the throat, a major contributor to chronic halitosis.
To date, no other oral rinse has been proven to be this effective in research studies with eliminating bad breath and preventing bad breath from returning for 24 hours following just one application.
