Did you know?
During exercise our saliva production is slowed right down with non essential water in the body being turned to sweat. When water is removed from saliva we are left with thick mucus and without the presence of that thin watery saliva our teeth aren't protected against bacteria, acid or sugar.
Saliva glands can take up to 30 minutes to start producing watery saliva or longer if the body isn't hydrated enough.
In this time if you drink a sugary Powerade or eat an acidic orange you can be causing your teeth serious harm and not rehydrating as fast as you could if you chose to drink water.
Your body deserves the best so stick to water when exercising.
