Energy drinks have had a healthy image, at least until now. Researchers J. Anthony von Fraunhofer, MSc, PhD, FRSC, FADM, and Matthew Rogers, DDS at the University of Maryland Baltimore Dental School demonstrated that energy drinks are as much as 10 times more likely to cause tooth decay than Coke! How can this be?

Well, most energy drinks, like Red Bull, provide that boost you feel through multiple ingredients, the most common of which are caffeine and sugar. Some of the popular beverages have as much as 10 teaspoons of sugar in a single serving. That’s a lot of sugar! But the sweetener alone is not what causes the erosion to tooth enamel.
Can you imagine drinking a cup of tea or coffee with 10 teaspoons of sugar? Even those with the worst sweet tooth will stop at 3 or 4. So, to counteract how awful an energy drink that is so sweet would taste, manufacturers balance the sweeteners with acids to create a pleasing flavor.

That’s right…acids that work right through your teeth! It’s the high amount of acids that compound the high amounts of sugar in the drinks. And on top of that fans of the sweet stuff tend to sip all day, not just swig down a drink.

So how can you get sustainable energy and not ruin your teeth?
One possibility suggested by Beverage companies is to swig down energy drinks all at once, rather than sipping, and then to brush your teeth. Not exactly a practical solution for someone on the go!

A simple way to get your energy without it eating your teeth is with sugar-free WINRGY.

WINRGY gives you sustainable energy that comes from vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. Not a jolt, but energy that lasts for hours. On top of that there’s about the same amount of caffeine as one cup of coffee.

And sweeteners? Well that’s the sweet part. We sweeten with Xylitol, a natural substance that has been demonstrated by dentists to reduce, yes actually reduce, cavities and damage to tooth enamel. Xylitol does this by inhibiting the growth of the mutans streptococci, a bacteria that leads to tooth decay. So not only does WINRGY contain no sugar, it also contains a natural substance that reduces cavities!
