One Shocking Fact About Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV removes stains, whitens teeth, kills bacteria in your mouth and gums, but there is also a side that you didn’t know – ACV can also damage your teeth with improper use.

Acidic food generally can wear down tooth enamel, one of the toughest tissues in the human body. What is enamel? It is a thin layer that surrounds the teeth and protects them from the strains of biting, chewing, crunching  and grinding.

If the enamel gets worn down,  you’re risking developing a permanent tooth, nerve, or gum damage. But there’s no need to panic.

You can still use ACV safely by diluting it in water – which is the proper way to drink it – and take the mixture at least a half an hour after brushing your teeth.

Brushing you teeth after taking vinegar causes more damage to your teeth. It’s even advisable if you have the chance and the means to drink ACV through a stainless steel straw just so that you can avoid exposing your teeth to the acetic acid.

Take these precautions, but don’t forget about the world of testimonies and studies that document ACV’s healing properties.
