Because seeds are dry, it may seem unusual to use them to increase moisture. However, fennel seeds are rich in a plant ingredient called flavonoids. The seeds give off a distinct smell and keep your mouth clean. In fact, people have used fennel for centuries to fight bad breath. Fennel seeds also help produce saliva, which, in turn, helps reduce dry mouth. You can try roasting some fennel seeds in a pan, and then grinding them with a bit of sea salt. A good rule of thumb is to eat ½ teaspoons of the fennel seed mixture after each meal. This practice ensures a healthy and fresh mouth.
