Energy And Sports Drinks Are DESTROYING Your Teeth!

Filed under: TeensFoodNutrition

energy drinks rot teeth

Which do you love more — feeling alert and focused or your pearly white teeth? If you chose the latter, then you probably want to stop drinking energy and sports drinks!

A new study has found that the beverages loaded with electrolytes sugar and crazy high acidity levels are actively (and irreversibly) tearing the protective enamel off our teeth after just 5 days of regularly drinking them!

The study tested the effects of nine energy drinks and 13 sports drinks on teeth to discover the results that would make any dentist shriek. And in case you're wondering, energy drinks (like your precious Red Bull) were the WORST offenders because they caused twice as much damage to teeth as sports drinks.

What's crazy is that these beverages are marketed to America's youth as if they will deliver a blast of energy that will help them overcome any obstacle or help their performance on the football field. In reality, kids are simply "bathing their teeth with acid" when they guzzle them down.

Some of you may be thinking, "Who needs enamel on their teeth, anyway?" If you want your teeth protected from cavities and decay, U do!

You know what other beverage is really refreshing and can even help wake us up in the morning? Water!

Q&A: How To Prevent Your Nail Polish From Chipping

Hi Leah,
 
I spend a lot of money on a mani pedi every week and my nail polish chips straight away even after using enamel – got any tips so that it doesn’t crack?
 
Thanks Sam

Celebrity nail artist Leah Light responds:

Hi Sam

My suggestion would have to be switching to a professional gel polish … they are the AMAZING!! A good quality gel polish will last between 2 – 3 weeks will ensure you don’t ever have to deal with chips or smudges again!! The brand I use and highly recommend is Artistic Color Gloss, I find it to be the best available to date with over 66 colors and it lasts aprox 21 days with absolutely no damage to the natural nails at all!

I hope that helps you.

Leah
