Many people have the habit of drinking lemon water on an empty stomach in the morning and they feel proud of themselves.
However, we should warn you about something related to this healthy habit and we hope it’s not too late.
Nowadays, websites and internet healthy portals are full with articles which say that drinking lemon water on an empty stomach in the morning is extremely healthy, but you can’t find anywhere that there are some negative effects as well. Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning can damage your teeth.
As you all know, lemon contains acid, which in combination with warm water, softens the tooth enamel.
We should warn you not to wash your teeth in less than 30 minutes after you drink this healthy mixture, because there are great chances you will get your enamel damaged.
Nevertheless, there are some ways in which you can prevent this problem. First of all, instead of drinking warm water lemon, you should let the water be warm as the room temperature. Another solution is to drink it with a straw, which will prevent contact with your teeth.
Never wash your teeth immediately after you drink this mixture, instead wait for an hour or two and then wash them.
