This is our review of Scandinavian Formulas Good Breath. This is a product that is designed to deliver exactly that – breath that doesn’t smell after you have eaten foods that are notorious for causing bad breath such as garlic, onions and spicy foods. It is also supposed to deal with coffee breath, and the horrible smell of smokers’ breath. It is even supposed to counter unpleasant “early morning” breath.
However, it is important to note that Scandinavian Formulas Good Breath is not designed to mask the bad breath smell that results from poor oral hygiene.
- Parsley Seed Oil (Petroselinum crispum) 1000mg
(from 0.2 mg of a 500:1 concentrate)
(equivalent to 100 mg Fresh Parsley Seeds)
- Sunflower Seed Oil (Helianthus annuus) 119.8mg
Other Ingredients: Gelatin, Glycerin, and Water
Parsley has long been used as a way to freshen breath thanks too its fresh, strong flavor. It also contains chlorophyll which is thought to have antibacterial properties. Bad breath is often the result of the smell produced when bacteria feast on the bits and pieces of food that remain in your mouth after eating.
Sunflower seed oil is said to be rich in healthy fats that can remove odor-causing foods from your teeth and mouth.
Take 2 to 3 capsules with liquid after eating.
This should work for up to six hours.

Scandinavian Formulas Good Breath Review – Conclusion
The two active ingredients in Scandinavian Formulas Good Breath – parsley seed oil and sunflower seed oil – have long been advocated as a way to eliminate bad breath that results from such things as eating garlic and onions, drinking coffee or smoking.
It does not mask the bad odors that arise from poor oral hygiene – nor do the manufacturers make any such claim.
Despite the fact that the two active ingredients are acceptable to vegetarians, they are contained in a softgel capsule that may (or may not) contain animal products. Because we were unable to ascertain the provenance of the gelatin used, we have to presume that it is most likely animal and therefore vegetarians and vegans should probably avoid this product.
We were also a little surprised at the cost of the product. You cannot purchase it directly from the manufacturer without going through the hassle of emailing them, which means you are most likely to purchase it online. A bottle of 60 softgels at $7.84 might seem like an acceptable price to pay – until you figure out that each serving of 3 softgels means you will only get 20 servings per container. And each of those 20 servings will only last for 6 hours. That means, if you want nice fresh breath all day, your $7.84 container will hardly last you any time at all.
