This Powerful Mouthwash Will Boost Your Confidence And Really Works

We are going to talk about a product that I’m so glad I found it. It’s going to sound awful when I say it but I’m glad I found it for you, Tom. What are we going to talk about?

Generically, it’s mouthwash. It’s an oral rinse. It’s called TheraBreath. Tracy, you would probably remember better than me but my entire adult life, I have had a body chemistry reality that I have pretty chronic bad breath. It’s a wonder that you fell in love with me and we have been together this long. Honestly, when it’s bad, it’s really bad. Over decades, I have tried everything to try to improve my bad breath. First of all, I’m habitually brushing my teeth and using other mouthwashes, chewing gum, mints or all sorts of things to try to mask it or make it so it’s not offensive.

Even the few times that I have worked as an employee at another company, I would have a toothbrush and toothpaste on my desk. After lunch, I would go immediately brush my teeth. You work with people. You don’t want to offend them. It’s something that a lot of times I’m not even aware of. As Tracy and I are together in different places, across the desk from each other, side to side or even if we are at an event, Tracy will tap me on the shoulder saying, “You need some gum. You are going to do something with your breath.” I didn’t have awareness. When you have this problem, you don’t notice it.

Everybody else does. It’s unfortunate because you want to be a professional. It’s an embarrassment, I’m sure as well, Tom.

Believe me, I have had people that I have worked with behind my back calling me names related to this and all sorts of things. It’s an embarrassment. It’s not like I ever wanted it to be. It’s also not like I was not aware that I have the problem. I have done everything. They have things about scraping the back of your tongue and any kind of body hygiene or maintenance thing or your diet.

Probiotics, supplements you take, homeopathic. We have tried them all.

Tracy found TheraBreath. I’m going to go into the detail of what it is.

I found this thing on Amazon. We have been together long enough. We don’t have a lot of privacy between the two of us. It’s not like I hand this to you and you go, “That’s horrible. How could you give me something like this?” I knew he was struggling with this. I happened to see this product. I had read a review about it. I thought, “It’s a mouthwash. If he doesn’t like it, we will toss it.” What does it cost me? It costs $10 or something for 1 bottle or 2 bottles for $13. I think that’s what it was. I bought the two bottles. I gave them to you. It was a miraculous overnight difference.

What I said to Tracy is, “I will give it a try. What’s it going to hurt?” What it says is it lasts for 24 hours. It tells you to take a cup full, this big orange cup. Rinse it in your mouth for one minute, then gargle with another cup full for 30 seconds after that. Wait five minutes before eating. It does suggest using it twice a day, morning and night. This is more of a marketing message. It says, “It fights bad breath for 24 hours.” That, to me, is more of a marketing message. If you want me to use it morning and night, wouldn’t that only take care of your bad breath for half a day? You’ve got to use it twice to get through a whole day? That bugs me a little bit. It seems a little disingenuous. I will tell you. How long have I been using this, Tracy? It was an early 2021 addition to my daily routine. I will tell you, many days now, I end up doing it once a day. It’s not that I don’t want to do it twice a day but I get so busy that I don’t always remember to do it twice a day. I haven’t heard any complaints from Tracy.

Here’s the thing. When you get a product like this, this is my concern. I was like, “I’m going to give it to him. Maybe it will work. Maybe it won’t.” It was no harm done. It might not have a bad taste. It might have good taste. Who knows what that was going to be? There are also different flavors. I chose the one that I thought you would like based on your toothpaste. I picked it specific.

The one I have is called Icy Mint. Honestly, it tastes fine. It’s certainly not all that different from the flavor of my toothpaste.

Here’s the problem with that, Tom. I haven’t been able to get the big bottles in. I had to buy the mini ones this last time because they are out of stock. What happens in that is I had to try a second flavor just to get you some because you are going to run out. Let’s go back to the idea that when you buy something that has a routine that you have to change, there’s always a risk that that’s not going to work. The fact that it has immediate results, though, makes a difference in reinforcing this new behavior that you have to do, which is using it every morning, every night, once or twice a day, whatever you choose to do here. That doesn’t happen if you didn’t get immediate positive results that felt life-changing. You wouldn’t keep that up.

That’s the thing that is important to share with all of you who’s reading this. Those of you that have a problem with bad breath, 100% I recommend you to try it. You’ve got nothing to lose. If your breath is as bad as mine was, chronic body chemistry situation, I believe, based on my experience, it’s going to work for you. I do recommend you at least give it a try. I can’t speak for you about the other flavors because I haven’t tried them yet. I have only tried the Icy Mint. Here’s the thing. There’s one of the things that would bother me the most. I’m going to get real here with the audience a little bit. Tracy and I go down on a date night. I’m feeling romantic. I want to kiss my wife. I’ve got to tell you. There are times when I would go kiss her, she’s like, “Can you go brush your teeth?” She couldn’t get close to me unless I would go brush my teeth.

The big problem is that in addition to Tom having this problem, I have an ultra-sensitive sense of smell. That makes everything worse. It is probably not as bad for other people as it is for me with the sense of smell.

If you have a very sensitive sense of smell, that reinforces the reality that this product works. Here’s the thing. She gave it to me. I tried it. I said, “I will try it for a couple of days.” I don’t even remember the exact timeline. I’m not here to say, “Within one hour, it was gone and everything was great.” I don’t honestly remember but I can tell you this. Within 1 day or 2, for sure, I said, “Tracy, we are going to experiment. You gave this stuff to me. I’m going to kiss you. We are going to test this. If it works, it works. If it doesn’t work, I want to know because I don’t want to do this if it’s not going to work.”

All I can say is I was extremely appreciative that you did do the nightly routine every night.

I still do. Honestly, at night before I go to bed is the time I’m very consistent. It’s in the morning I’m not always consistent. It depends on how quickly I’m getting up and working because I’m a bit of a workaholic. I’m a morning person. I get up. I get so much accomplished before 9:00 AM. More than most people do all day long, honestly. I get up and go. This stuff is legit. It works. I want to share some of the details about it that are important and valuable to share. One is the ingredients. I went to my dentist. I brought it with me. I had a photo of the labels and stuff because I wanted him to look at the ingredients. I wanted to make sure this is great. It’s solving my bad breath problem but is it doing any damage to my teeth? Are there any other negative side effects?

He read the ingredients. It’s water, glycerin, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, citric acid, sodium hydroxide, Mentha piperita, which has peppermint oil, menthol, sodium chlorite, citrus, lemon peel oil, sodium benzoate, sucrose, xylitol. That’s something that’s highlighted on the front. “With xylitol.” I don’t even know what that means. I don’t care. Sodium bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is something we all know of. Our grandparents or our great grandparents, that’s what they used to brush their teeth with before modern toothpaste came out. It seems that they may have been onto something if that’s a big ingredient that’s solving the bad breath. The dentist looked at this and said, “Nothing bad about that. Nothing is going to hurt your teeth.” He hadn’t known about it and he noted it. One of the things that it says, “It’s dentist formulated.” This formula was invented by Dr. Harold Katz in 1993. Where were you, Dr. Katz, in 1993 for me? I would have loved it when you give it since then.

That’s one year after we’ve got married.

What he did is he formulated it in 1993 to help his own daughter conquer her bad breath because nothing else worked. It sounds very familiar to my experience. Since then, he says millions have regained their confidence by switching to their breath formulas for their daily oral care routine. That’s about it. It’s legit. It works. I’m scared to death, Tracy, when you tell me they are out of stock of it.

Confidence Boosting Mouthwash: TheraBreath could double or triple the price and people would still buy it because they know how well it works.


They are not out of stock of every flavor so I’ve got you some new flavors. We will try them out. I’ve got you all the mini bottles. They had those. I bought you a ton.

That’s better for travel. When I have been traveling and I do travel a bit, even coming out of the pandemic, I have to for business sometimes. I took this big stinking bottle with me, which you have to check because you can’t carry that big a bottle on the plane. These little bottles are going to be helpful.

This is the thing, Tom. When we find something like this, it’s $13 for two bottles. You went through them quickly. I don’t know how fast he goes through a bottle. If you do, do it twice a day.

If I do it twice a day, I would use it for a week. If I’m using it once a day, it potentially stretches to two weeks. I would say more commonly I’m using about every ten days I’m going through a bottle.

Let’s say it’s $26 or $25 a month that you go through it. $25 a month for you to have good breath for your wife to want to kiss you, it’s totally worth it. That’s a couple of lattes.

When it comes to the price, I can truly say I don’t care. It could be 2 or 3 times the price. It might be hard for a newbie to think about, “That’s expensive.” They might have doubt and skepticism. Is it going to work? Is it worth the price? I don’t recommend the company does that but I can tell you, from the experience of using it, they could double or triple the price and I would still buy it because I know how well it works. That’s the only point I was trying to make about the price. I don’t care how much it is.

It’s completely worth it when something works like that. That’s how we know you are onto something that is truly the next little thing. This thing has been the next little thing since 1993. What a shame that it took us this long to find it. They need some marketing help out there. They need some push. They need some people to write reviews, which I did on Amazon. People may not know but I write a ton of reviews that get upvoted. People appreciate the types of reviews I write, both on Google and on Amazon because they help people understand why it’s useful and will this work.

I have a history of doing that so it’s helping other people understand that. I mean this. I only write a bad review for something if it’s truly going harmful, not worth buying at all. I don’t write it if it’s mediocre. I just ignore it. I only write good reviews or bad reviews, nothing in between. This is one of those products that needs more people to know about it because it is personally life-changing. I know you feel better about you going in public, to the events and interacting as an executive. That’s important to us.

I have a lot more confidence. It’s a non-issue. I don’t worry about it. At times I would question, “Is my breath bad? Do they notice? Am I offending anybody?” Now it’s not even a second thought.

TheraBreath has truly changed the way that you feel about yourself out in public. I think that in and of itself is why it makes it a true next little thing.
