Just like soda drinks, effervescent vitamins ruin teeth enamel, a study by the University of Helsinki claims. They wash away minerals from our teeth, resulting in their damage.
Researchers found that teeth immersed into vitamin drink start losing minerals after 100 hours, even if the drink contains calcium. Vitamin C drinks were found to be the most dangerous because they contain a whopping amount of citric acid.
With effervescent vitamins being advertised as a good thing for everyday use, their consumption may impose a serious threat for your teeth. Scientists advise having vitamin drinks through a straw or taking vitamin pills to ensure your enamel is protected. And make sure you regularly eat foods rich in calcium, primarily cheese and milk.
