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!

Drink Coconut Water To Restore Your Body's Energy Levels

Filed under: Exclusives!FitnessPersonal TrainerBodyNutrition

Coconut water

Want all of the benefits of drinking a sports drink after a work out without all of the extra sugar and other additives? FitPerez contributor and personal trainer Ryan Walseth recommends coconut water! Find out why below!

After a sweat-evoking 60-minute workout, (strength and cardio of course) your body becomes depleted in it's glycogen and electrolyte stores.

Glycogen serves as your immediate source of energy (sugar).

- Low glycogen levels = low energy

Electrolytes assist in maintaining water balance in the body. They consist of magnesium, calcium, sodium, phosphorus and potassium.

- Low electrolyte levels = potential muscle cramping

So what should you reach for after your workout to replenish these depleted energy and hydration stores?

Sports drinks such as Gatorade, G2, Powerade, and Vitamin Water are popular choices. Unfortunately they all contain added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and/or sucrose syrup as well as artificial colorings and additives.

A healthier alternative?

Coconut Water!

Coconut water contains naturally occurring sugar (glycogen) from the fruit, and more potassium (electrolytes) than a banana.

I sampled nearly a dozen different brands finding a couple to my liking:

1. Zico
2. Taste Nirvana (with Aloe)

If you haven't tried Coconut Water yet, check it out and let me know what you think! Found in any grocers refrigeration or beverage aisle.
