I work in an environment where I am up close and personal to my clients and due to having, shall we say, smelly food for lunch at least three times a week I am paranoid about having bad breath. So in my time I have tried a vast number of products to remedy this and one such product has been the Tung Gel Bad Breath and tounge Gunk Treatment. That's a mouthful just saying that, pardon the pun, but I have seen very successful results with this!
This retails for around £3.99 in local stores and comes in small tubes that depending on sue will last you between 4-8 weeks. You are supposed to also purchase the Tung brush to use this with but you can use a normal brush. All you need to do is brush a little of the gel on the back of your tongue and bobs your uncle! This is all based on the notion that the source of much and breath comes from the tongue and the germs and bacteria that reside there and by brushing the tongue that will aid this.
I found it very very simple and easy to use. I have no problem brushing my tongue and as a result of using this I have undoubtedly felt an improvement in my oral hygiene. After use the mouth feels much fresher and used just after brushing teeth it feels like your mouth has had a complete makeover. It really works that well!
The taste is a tad bitter and sweet but nothing so nasty and irritable as to put you off it.
All in all this product works a treat and leaves you with a refreshed mouth, a clean feeling and tongue cleaner than ever before!
Main source of bad breath is a bacteria on the tongue and plaque forming around it. To fight both now we have the Tung Gel, containing Zink that neutralizes bad breath. Gel works better than standard toothpaste by loosening the sticky plaque from the tongue and fighting bacteria.
It has a nice taste and smell.
As usually, I bought mine from Amazon, my trusty merchant. You can also get the Tung Brush from the same supplier. The Tung Gel at £5.25 is rather on a pricey side but you only use a little at a time and combine it with a usual toothpaste for teeth hygiene.
Directions of use:
Use with Tung Brush. Extend the tongue and gently brush from the back of the tongue forward to the tip (for approx. 10 seconds). Repeat as necessary. Avoid swallowing. In case of accidental ingestion beyond normal use quantities, consult a physician.
There is no mention of spitting it out but presumably that follows with probably no rinsing to let it work better. But that's only my reasoning. I usually rinse it briefly.
The feeling after use is fresh on the tongue and its appearance after continuous use has dramatically improved from fuzzy greyish to smooth pinkish in colour.
From that I can say it's working and morning breath has definitely improved too.
The thing I have not tried yet is Tung Brush and that's the next thing I have to try in order to verify its effectiveness against Tung Gel.
One and only thing that's not agreeable with Tung Gel is its excessive sweetness.
Besides that the gel was well worth trying and continue to be most effective.
