Grapefruit Lemon Lime
Yes! There’s Oils instead! Grapefruit & Lemon & Lime and several others in your water are great & do wonders for your body! No acid!!! Not to mention if you go to the restaurant and get one of those fruits in your water, who’s been touching that fruit, when did they cut the fruit, is it clean, etc. etc. etc. ewwww. I’ll stick with my essential oils thanks!
Citrus fruits are extremely nutritious and can provide you with many vitamins—but this fruit family’s natural sugar count and acid content can wreak havoc on teeth if consumed in excess. The pH levels of grapefruits, in particular, is extremely low, meaning they’re highly acidic and can corrode the surface of your teeth (and the enamel that protects that surface). When you’re eating grapefruit, it’s best to chew and swallow without delay, says Dr. Sharona Dayan, a Beverly Hills-based periodontist. “Fruit mulling can also lead to premature wear of the teeth,” she says. Another one to watch out for: dried fruits, which contain even higher concentrates of sugar.
You may not eat lemon outright, but you may be known to squeeze this fruit’s highly acidic juice into the beverages you drink every day. The acidic nature of lemon juice can lead to enamel erosion overall, says Vinson, which can result in cavities and allow the plaque inside your mouth to cause more damage than it normally would. If you must have a slice of lemon in your drink, make sure it’s not a sugary one, as the combination of sugar and acid can cause substantial damage if consumed on a regular basis.
