Bad breath, oral malodor and halitosis are all the same word for an embarrassing problem that is sometimes difficult to hide. Up to 50% of adults will suffer from bad breath that that persists at least once in their lives. Most people think that bad breath originates in the gut, but the fact is it actually originates from bacteria at the back of the mouth such as around the gums, teeth or tonsils that produce sulfur-filled compounds. The link to the gut though is there, because this condition – along with a coated tongue – is one of the lesser known symptoms of improper digestion.
Improper digestion, in turn, is usually down to a lack of digestive enzymes. Why would digestion have anything to do with this at all? Because digestion begins in the mouth via the action of the teeth, combined with the enzymes in saliva. Today we review a product that can potentially help with bad breath as it is packed with digestive enzymes. Zymax Natural Digestive Aid Formula/Digestive Aid System is designed to aid all aspects of digestion and to helpa alleviate bad breath as a result.

Bromelain is a powerful digestive enzyme that helps breakdown tough cellulose and fiber, with protease breaks down protein and amylase breaks down carbohydrates. Chamomile and pepper are detoxifiers, which would help to rid the body of the toxin build-up as a result of proper digestion. Caraway and fennel do the same and help to keep you regular as a result. Peppermint and chamomile also soothe any rough or raw patches of tissue as a result of abrasion; they are therefore great anti inflammatories. They would, for example, speed up your healing in the case of gum disease. Ginger root and turmeric are further antioxidants that also help to stabilize metabolism. The main stabilizer in this list of ingredients is apple cider vinegar. It ensures that most sugars leave the body and are not stored as fats.
The overall effect should be better digestion, improved regularity and toxin expulsion. This improved digestion starts in the mouth, so that whatever residual food is stuck there is broken down and not not left to linger, causing halitosis.
Take 1 – 3 Zymax capsules before all main meals. If these are the only digestive enzymes you are taking, use 1 to 2 capsules before main meals. As symptoms improve, you can then take only 1 or 2 capsules 3 times per day. Stop using the product if you experience any persistent discomfort.
One pack of 90 capsules sells for $29.99 on the Zymax website, where there is also a 3-for-2 promotion.

Zymax Natural Digestive Aid Formula Review – Conclusion
This is a multi-purpose product designed to help with a range of digestive issues ranging from colon movement irregularity, wind, bloating, Crohn’s disease, bad breath, IBS and more. The formulation breaks down food, detoxifies and then soothes, which is an adequate three-prong approach. Most digestive enzyme products do not contain apple cider vinegar, which is a powerful superfood with so many benefits.
However, Zymax seems not to have gained traction as a product. It is not available on Amazon – at least not at the time of compiling research – and there is a severe paucity of consumer reviews for this product anywhere. The question therefore is whether you are willing to try a product that seems well formulated, but that seems to be a highly unpopular seller.
