Highly odorous food and beverages, such as onions, garlic or coffee, may also be the cause for body odor, as may be the lack of personal hygiene or excessive perspiration. Metabolic diseases and hormone changes may also trigger an increase in body odor.
Chlorophyll has the ability to reduce the activity of certain proteases and therefore inhibits the formation of mouth and body odor from the inside. It either attacks the odor-causing protein compounds directly, or it redirects the decomposition process before any odor-causing compounds can be formed.
Highly odorous food and beverages, such as onions, garlic or coffee, are well known to cause mouth odor. Another frequent cause is a lack of oral hygiene as well as infections of oral mucous membranes or teeth. Less frequent is mouth odor as the result of metabolic or gastro-intestinal diseases.
Dietary mouth odor is caused by metabolism changes – especially with low-carbohydrate diets. If the body does not receive enough carbohydrates, the lipid metabolism suffers. In order to counteract the lack of carbohydrates, the body produces so-called ketone bodies which are exhaled as foul-smelling acetone.
With diet-related bad breath and body odour, Stozzon should be taken whilst you are eating the odour-causing food, as in this case Stozzon must be active during the digestive process. It is recommend that 3-5 dragees are taken before and during the meal. With persistent odour problems, 1-2 dragees should be taken 3 times a day. However, these are only guidelines. As each person has an individual metabolism and reacts differently to taking Stozzon, each person must determine their own dose.
