Originates from the oral cavity The most common misconception about bad breath is that it originates in the stomach, but in fact it almost always originates in the oral cavity, more specifically in 90 per cent of cases. Anyone can suffer from bad breath at some point in their life. How does bad breath develop and what is the cause? Bad breath is caused by growth of certain bacteria in the oral cavity, between teeth and in pits on the back of the tongue. When these bacteria break down food particles (etcetera), malodorous sulphur gases are formed and these cause bad breath in the exhaled air. CB12 neutralizes and prevents the origin of these gases.
