Many health-conscious men and women exercise regularly, and some use sports drinks for hydration.
While it’s true that they help maintain electrolyte levels in the body (and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks), their acidity can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel is weakened, those pearly whites are more staining, discoloration, and decay.
Nobody wants darkened teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.
