Can cause serious harm: this popular morning drink is beneficial but not to the whole body
When it comes to dental health, we mean not only their appearance and color but also their general condition. It's no secret that excessive consumption of coffee and tea, especially in the morning, has a negative impact on tooth color.
However, the Mirror recently reported that a drink that millions of people love to drink in the morning can have a negative impact on tooth enamel, according to dental expert Dr. Khaled Kasem. And we are not talking about coffee or tea.
According to the doctor, you should be very careful when drinking lemon water in the morning. This is because of its high acidity. People drink water with lemon juice, a little honey, and sometimes even turmeric and cayenne pepper. Such mixtures supposedly help to improve bowel function and preserve the youthfulness of the skin for a long time.
Dr. Kasem confirms that lemon water is indeed beneficial for the body and does not advise against it. On the contrary, he says if drinking lemon water is a daily ritual for a person, it should be continued, with a change in the way it is consumed.
With regular exposure to acid, tooth enamel can become thinner, making teeth more vulnerable to various diseases. Therefore, in order to drink lemon water without harming your teeth, the expert advises simply drinking it through a straw.
