La Croix Lovers May Not Want to Hear This – Sharp Science

Despite popular thought, soda water like La Croix or Perrier isn’t so guilt-free to drink. Carbonic acid in these drinks slowly erode the enamel. Combined with the fact that La Croix lovers enjoy the drink as a water substitute, it may be a wise choice to drink in moderation — like any other soda.

  1. Here's a thing. As much as most of what is being said here is correct, why would they use someone who advocates applying fluoride to your teeth (which is an acid that ALSO wears aware enamel on your teeth) as an expert in this case? It's really hard not to see the double standard here.

  2. this has been disproven time amd time again. your saliva neutralized the already weak carbonic acidnin carbonated beverages. garbage video.

  3. A different video on YouTube about LaCroix interviewed the Dean of a school of dentistry, and he said the natural fluids in your mount neutralize the carbonic acid so it's unlikely to cause any damage. WHO DO I BELIEVE?!

  4. When all the people went "What?!?" first you could tell it was so fake, and none of those people probably give a shit that it erodes your enamel

  5. You should be rinsing with water after you eat or drink anything….BOOM….problem solved….rinse with water after you eat or drink….done deal!

  6. According to available research, sparkling water is generally fine for your teeth—and here's why. In a study using teeth that were removed as a part of treatment and donated for research, researchers tested to see whether sparkling water would attack tooth enamel more aggressively than regular lab water. The result? The two forms of water were about the same in their effects on tooth enamel. This finding suggests that, even though sparkling water is slightly more acidic than ordinary water, it's all just water to your teeth.

  7. This is false. There are no major studies showing that carbonation erodes teeth. All of the properties of regular soda such as sugar and acidity is what ruins enamel. Please do more research instead of finding that one dentist that kind of eludes to the point you’re trying to make.

  8. To save me from soda I choose LA Croix or Pellegrino or Pierrier. with all things…even water balance.

  9. That article in the Post could have easily been a hit-piece, supported by competing drink companies that don't like La Croix's encroachment (native advertising).
