Bad breath is often a clear sign of dehydration. Drinking a sufficient amount of water washes away leftover food particles and oral bacteria that lead to bad breath.

Take the edge off your hangover

Take a proactive approach when you’re next out drinking and save yourself from the consequences of alcohol the next day.
