Bad breath happens to all of us (yay to being human!). However, you can easily improve the freshness of your breath and your overall oral health by using a tongue scraper daily.

Check out why you MUST clean your tongue today:

WHAT Is Tongue Scraping?

The act of cleaning your tongue, or tongue scraping, is a very old Ayurvedic self-care ritual. By cleaning the gunk off your tongue, you are removing bacteria, toxins, viruses, fungus and other build up.

5 Health Benefits Of Cleaning Your TONGUE

Improve Your Breath
  • Removes bacteria that causes bad breath
    • Takes away the build-up on your tongue, which contains bacteria
  • If left untreated, the bacteria causes foul smelling breath
Enhances Your Sense Of Taste
  • Cleaning your tongue sharpens your taste receptors
  • Improves your ability to taste food better
Stimulate Your Organs
  • Scraping your tongue helps stimulate your  internal organs
    • Sends energetic connections throughout your body to release toxins
Improves Communication In Your Body
  • Heightens communication between food and your body
  • Your tongue is the first place where the nutrients in food are in contact with receptors
  • Scraping your tongue removes substances that can inhibit this communication
Removes Excessive Keratin
  • An overload of keratin causes discoloration of the coating on your tongue, which affects your well being
  • Tongue scraping helps maintain a healthy balance of keratin in your mouth

How To Choose And Use A Tongue Scraper

Tongue scrapers come in may shapes and materials. Look for one that is curved, not  too sharp and preferably made out of stainless steel.

To use your tongue scraper:

  • Do it 2 times daily for best results, in the morning and at night
  • Use just before brushing your teeth
  • Clean the scraper with fresh water before using it
  • Hold the scraper with both hands and lightly scrape your tongue in one long stroke
    • Use light pressure
    • Repeat 5 times or more until all the coating on your tongue has been removed
  • Rinse the scraper with water
  • Rinse your mouth out with fresh water and then brush your teeth!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
