Mouth fresheners are available in different forms in market. Chewing gum is also a type of mouth freshener. When you are in India, you will see people chewing “pan or paan” after meal. Or you might also see roasted seeds in restaurants kept in a bowl.
While stepping out after heavy meal or snacks you will take a teaspoon of these roasted seeds and put in your mouth. Within an hour of eating these mouth fresheners you will start feeling better. They get rid of bad breath, heaviness in the system and helps in digestion.

But, some mouth fresheners are more popular and prepared in different ways. These generally mixture of different ingredients and offer different benefits.

Remember: Quantity of paan that should be consumed is one or two per day after meal. Too much paan consumption is not recommended. If not, we get addicted to paan which is not good for oral health. Similarly, eating mouth fresheners also should be limited to 1 or 2 tsp after meal. Similarly, too much of eating seeds can also result in constipation!
