Why Use a Tongue Scraper?

Are you tongue scraping? You should be! 


There are several reasons to tongue scrape! Let's talk about the top 3 reasons you should be doing it. 

1) Tongue Scraping Reduces Bad Breath
This is probably the most important reason you should be tongue scraping. If you have bad breath (halitosis) using Gunkii is perfect for you. Remove that layer of dumpster juice that causes dragon breath. 


2) It Improves Your Sense Of Taste
Research suggests that using a tongue scraper can enhance your sense of taste. You will be removing a layer of gunk that sits on top of your tongue, which can clear the tastebuds in order to better tickle those taste buds and enjoy food a little better.


3) Improve Your Oral Health Care Routine
Trust us when we tell you this - prevention is easier than maintenance (for most things in life). Your teeth, gums and mouth are the same. 
Using Gunkii supports your overall oral care routine by removing more debris, plaque, toxins, bacteria and dead skin cells. 


At a minimum, you should scrape your tongue when you brush your teeth. This will help prevent long-term buildup that’s associated with severe bad breath.


A misconception is that using a toothbrush on your tongue is just as effective as using a tongue scraper. Researchers have found that tongue scrapers remove 30 percent more volatile sulfur compounds on the tongue than a soft-bristled toothbrush.


Although cleaning your tongue with a toothbrush is better than not cleaning it at all, using a Gunkii scraper is more effective.
