Some would say that the durian is Malaysia’s most beloved fruit. There are so many products that are created using durians these days. We’ve heard of durian ice-creams, burgers, whiskey, and a lot more.

With all our accumulated experience, durian lovers know that there are some side effects to eating this infamous fruit like bad breath, heatiness and flatulence.

Now, there’s actually research that suggests that durian could actually help prevent tooth decay and reduce bad breath. Yep, you read that right!

This research was done by the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Chulalongkorn in Bangkok, Thailand.

The research looked into the potential of the durian as a mouth cleanser. A type of gel was obtained from the durian shell and it was examined for its potential to prevent bacteria growth in lab rats.

The findings of the study show that “it could be employed as a natural antibacterial agent in oral hygiene products” to control the decay of teeth and periodontal disease.

According to Dental Health, periodontal disease is basically the swelling of the gums and bone support around the teeth.

The study found that the gel functioned the same as chlorhexidine. According to Science Direct, chlorhexidine is an anti-septic that is found in a lot of mouth wash products.

The study also discovered that the gel worked to decrease compounds that cause stinky breath.

So, how exactly does a fruit which is notorious for causing people’s mouth to smell funky suddenly turn into a cure for bad breath? That’s the miracle of science!

Soon in the future, durian lovers might get to enjoy durian mouth wash and not worry about bad breath after eating their favourite fruit! The possibilities are endless!
