Review : Iftar at Nando’s, Jumeirah!

Hey guys!

I’m back with another Iftar review. This was at Nando’s in Jumeirah Lakes, Dubai. It’s a really gorgeous place, with lots of greenery, beautiful landscaping and a fountain. It really has got a good vibe going there. Pair it with good food and you have got a perfect evening!

I love Nando’s. I’ve been there several times but it’s my first time being in this particular branch located in Jumeirah. Here is the Nando’s building and it’s entrance :

The interior is pretty special and has a welcoming atmosphere. The contemporary and beautiful South African art is definitely eye catching. The seating is comfy. The lights are beautiful ☺. Instant relaxation mood is set, once you enter there.

Paintings

I arrived pretty early before Iftar time (since I like to get my pix when not many people are around). My 3 year old was getting restless by then. Nando’s staff are always so friendly and thoughtful. They got him crayons & a paper with pictures in it to color in. That instantly got his attention and he was doodling away with joy 😊. They also gave him a balloon.

Coloring

Not part of the Iftar menu, but the staff got my son a kiddie chicken burger, fries and mildly spicy rice to keep him happy & fed. They are just so amazing!

Chicken burger

The Nando’s Iftar will start diners off with dates and water to break the fast, followed by Hummus and pita bread, rounded off with a delicious, flame-grilled PERi-PERi full chicken, chicken Espetada, four chicken wings, served with Mediterranean salad, PERi-PERi chips, PERi-PERi wedges, spicy rice and coleslaw. This is a meal for 4 persons, at just AED 199.

They are also offering a delicious meal deal for two to celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan. Diners can break their fast with water and dates, Hummus and pita bread, full chicken, PERi chips, rice and coleslaw for the extra special price of just AED 119.

Nandos chicken

Extremely yummy, melting-in-your-mouth marinated, flame-grilled chicken 😋

Espetada

Espetada, which has five pretty big and filling pieces of grilled chicken.

Overall, the Iftar menu is yummy and filling. I had one issue though and I need to say it here. The restaurant was packed by Iftar time. There wasn’t a single seat that was unoccupied. I think there were 3 serving staff. Once the time came to break fast, there was such a rush to serve people.

They seemed like they were unprepared for that many people to come in. I got my food a cool 25 mins after the time to break fast 😐. But, I actually felt bad for the staff. I’m not even kidding, they were literally flying across the room trying to serve soo many people. This was a media event that I was a part of. Maybe that’s why there were so many people. But with my previous experiences at Nando’s, I’d say the wait time isn’t that much and the staff are as always friendly and attentive. Please read my review of a dinner at Nando’s. That was in Al Qasba, Sharjah, which happens to be my favorite Nando’s branch.

Nando’s always so thoughtfully gives a goodie bag when going there for a review. They never fail to surprise. This time, I got a Peri-Peri garlic sauce, a PERInaise (which is a mayonnaise) & an adorable Nando’s chicken shaped USB. Love it!. I’ve been adding the sauce and mayo to my home cooked chicken ever since. They are such a great addition to just about anything. The mayonnaise squeezy bottle has this leak proof kinda lock and it’s just so convenient & mess free to use it!.

Goodies

If you love Nando’s, do check their Iftar out. The menu is designed to be pretty affordable. If you try it out, let me know how you liked it, dearies 😊

Review : Iftar at Westin Mina Seyahi Beach Resort, Dubai!

Hey friends,

The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina is welcoming the Holy Month of Ramadan with a stunning Iftar and Suhoor offering, at the Serdaal Ballroom & Terrace. The property itself is breathtakingly beautiful with a gorgeous interior too.

Recently, I was invited to review the iftar there. I’ve been to many buffets in my life (being such a foodie that I am) but frankly I’ve never seen a buffet with such an extensive variety of food. It’s lavish & simply stunning, to say the least.

Westin iftar

Ramadan Kareem

Bread section

The generous buffet features an array of Middle Eastern dishes such as traditional hot and cold mezze items, succulent mixed grills, a dedicated shawarma corner and lamb ouzi. There are also European and Indian selections on offer, plus a sushi and pasta station. Save room for dessert, as an abundance of Arabic sweets, including a dedicated Turkish delight corner and an entertaining live Turkish ice-cream station.

All dishes were absolutely delicious, a feast for the taste buds!. I couldn’t try some items simply because I didn’t have room for it. The number of dishes were that many. The chefs have done an excellent job putting forth such a diverse range of cuisines. I even got to try out certain things that I’ve heard of before but never had had yet, namely scallops, gnocchi & seared tuna.

I was delighted to find a live pasta station. Pasta is my weakness 😉. I got a penne pasta with turkey, mushrooms and cheese in tomato sauce. It was really great.

Pasta

The dessert section was decadent and rich. Be it the Arabic ones or the others, the selection as amazing.

Chocolate fountain

Chocolate fountain, marshmallows, fruits and more

There was live entertainment (music) that was soothing and mesmerising. There is also a henna corner.

Musician

My son absolutely loved the Turkish ice cream station. We got him a chocolate ice cream. The guy serving was playing around with him, not handing him the ice cream from the get go. Finally, my 3 year old got frustrated and tried to run away. Lol!. It was hilarious. He definitely loved the ice cream. It’s texture is so different from the regular ice cream. I tried some from my son’s. If I had space in my stomach I would have gotten one for myself but I just didn’t. I was so full.

Turkish ice cream

The Iftar will be offered daily from sunset to 9.30pm throughout Ramadan. It’s all priced at just AED 155 for adults and AED 55 for children under 12 (kids under 6 dine for free). I think it’s a steal for this price.

For more information or to make a reservation, please contact Westin at +971 04 511 7373.

There is Shisha service 8pm onwards on the Serdaal terrace. Suhoor is offered from 9pm – 1 am on week days and 9 pm – 2 am on weekends.

I highly recommend iftar at Westin. It’s something to definitely experience and rave about!

Hey friends,

Dubai is home to several topnotch attractions. Today, I will be reviewing one of them, Museum of Illusions, that’s located in Al Seef.

Al Seef

This whole area is built to reflect the traditional side of UAE. It’s old world charm is really refreshing, compared to the modern feel of Dubai. Here is the entrance of the museum :

Museum of Illusions

The reception staff were friendly and helpful. It’s a beautifully designed place, minimal in decor and so pleasing to the eye. On the left side, you can find a section where you can buy intellectual games that will challenge your mind. Prices are AED 50+ per game. Each of these games are available for playing inside the museum. Once you are done with the tour, you can come back and decide which one to buy and take home.There are some tshirts for sale too.

These are the games I mentioned earlier in the post. They can be enjoyed by both adults and kids. It will make your mind work in ways you didn’t know, to solve those.

My absolute favorite illusion is the Ames room. Depending on one’s position they will look either big or small in this room. It’s soo awesome!

Meanwhile my son’s favourite room was probably the room with these lights giving an awesome shadow play.

Museum of Illusions

Overall, it’s a very thrilling and intriguing experience. There are so many more illusions in the museum. You have got to go and see it, if you are someone who appreciates and enjoys things that are out of the norm. It’s a great place to go with your family and kids are just gonna love it. You will find some more attractions and some videos that I captured (like the room that spins and makes you dizzy even though you are standing still!), in the following video. Please watch it :

The museum is open from Sunday to Wednesday from 10 am – 10 pm and from Thursday to Saturday from 10 am – midnight. Ticket prices are AED 80 per adult, AED 60 per child above 5 years and AED 225 for a family (consisting of 2 adults and 2 kids). For more information, check out www.museumofillusions.ae or call 043573999. You can also get AED 10 discounted per ticket if you book your tickets online.

Here are the nearby attractions. I love how peaceful and serene it is. The market area gives a glimpse into the Arabic lifestyle.

Tips for oral hygiene during Ramadan!

A Healthpoint orthodontist gives tips for fresh breath and oral health while fasting

Healthpoint

Oral hygiene is particularly important during Ramadan as fasting can cause bacteria to build up, says the Head of the Dental Clinic at Healthpoint.

Dr. Khalid Alameri, Consultant Orthodontist and Head of the Dental Clinic at Healthpoint, explains that fasting and therefore abstaining from liquids can lead to the development of oral bacteria, a prime culprit in bad breath, cavities and gum disease.

Dr Khalid says, “People need to adapt their oral hygiene routine during Ramadan, being sure to brush their teeth after both iftar and suhoor to prevent bacteria from forming. Most mouth odor originates from the tongue, so using a tongue scraper twice a day will also help.”

Combatting dehydration is particularly important in avoiding bad breath, Dr Khalid points out. In addition to drinking plenty of liquids and avoiding salt, caffeine and diuretics during non-fasting hours, there are measures to prevent a dry mouth.

“If care is taken not to swallow any liquid, then the use of mouthwash or rinsing with water will not break the fast. However, some people are uncomfortable with this, so they can use miswak sticks, a natural tooth-cleaning twig, to stimulate salivary flow.”

Dr Khalid’s top-four tips for fresh breath while fasting

1. Brush and floss after iftar and suhoor

2. During the fasting hours, use a tongue scraper, miswak sticks and rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash

3. Use an oral pro-biotic to replenish healthy bacteria that may be lost through using too much mouthwash

4. When breaking your fast, avoid onions, garlic, smoking and other common causes of bad breath.

About Healthpoint

Healthpoint, part of Mubadala’s integrated network of world-class healthcare providers, is a premium hospital with three specialty centers – the Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery Centre, the Dentistry Clinic and Musculoskeletal. Based in Abu Dhabi and accepting patients throughout the UAE and GCC, the hospital provides community care, grounded in the latest internationally recognized medical approaches.

Should children be allowed to lock their doors

Kids nowadays tend to enjoy their solitude inside their bedrooms. They might spend their time studying or playing with their gadgets alone. Their room is where they feel most comfortable and where they escape difficulties from school and the neighborhood.

Kids

But when your kids leave their rooms, do they opt to lock them or leave them behind like an open book? Do you ever let your children decide whether they should have a private space of their own inside the house? Here are some issues that you should consider when you allow your children lock their rooms.

Privacy
Kids also need to have their alone time, especially school-age children. Kids who have had a long day at school with their peers deserve to rest on their own. They need a place where they can do their homework in peace as well.

Moreover, teaching kids the value of privacy is important so that they may be able to respect other people’s privacy. This way, they will be able to understand why other people lock or close their bedroom doors. They will learn to knock first before barging into someone else’s space.

Protection
If you teach your kids to lock the door while they are inside their respective bedrooms, you are also teaching them to protect themselves. You never know when a possible crime could take place inside your home (i.e., theft or robbery), which is why it is better to be always prepared. Even when you and your kids are not at home, it is better to have their rooms locked for safety.

Emergencies
However, locking up the room isn’t always a good option. For instance, if a calamity or an unexpected medical emergency occurs, you wouldn’t have easy access to your children’s room. Your kids might not be able to hear or sense the clamor because of an emergency or a sudden calamity.

This is an issue that most parents worry about when it comes to allowing their kids to lock their doors. In addition, it might be difficult for you to monitor your children’s activities. You will never know if a kid is sick, feeling down, or having bad dreams.

Just in case of urgent matters, you might want to use a tool that will help you enter your children’s quarters. Letting your kids lock their room does not mean you are completely banned in their space. You still have a huge responsibility as a parent to look after the safety and welfare of your little ones.

Lock pick

This emergency tool must be used as a last resort only since you should also respect your children’s private zone. Peterson lockpicks are manufactured according to Peterson’s military design. Buyers swear by its reliable rubber hand grip, which allows it not to slip away from your hands easily.

Through this tool, you won’t have to worry about your kids during emergencies, calamities, and random bad days. Your home will be a safer place with the Peterson lockpicks.

How CBD helps to get better sleep!

In the UK, two thirds (67%) of UK adults suffer from disrupted sleep and nearly a quarter (23%) manage no more than five hours a night.

A lack of sleep doesn’t just affect your day to day life it can also lead to a whole range of issues later in the long-term.

Supplements

Many people are therefore turning to CBD as a new way to help them sleep, CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical, which is derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant. The same plant species from which we get marijuana.

The big difference between the two is that despite coming from the same plant, CBD is a completely different chemical compound to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana cannabis, which causes you to get “high” when you consume it.

CBD wont get you ‘high’ but it can be very beneficial to your overall health in many ways.

How does it help me sleep?

We all have what are known as 5HT1A receptors inside of us, these receptors trigger the release and the reuptake of serotonin. Improved reuptake of serotonin allows excess serotonin molecules to be use more efficiently, which in turn, allows our bodies to relax much more quickly and provides us with more control over our mental state.

Serotonin is an inhibitory neurotransmitter meaning it acts as an ‘inhibitor’, filtering out excitatory messages so that only positive and critical thoughts can pass through a neuron. Serotonin is also a precursor to melatonin the hormone that makes us feel ‘sleepy’ so when naturally increased levels of serotonin occur we make more melatonin, Naturally!! This helps us to regulate our sleep wake cycle!

This is a big deal! If you speak to any sleep specialist, many of them will tell you that universally we’re sleeping worse and for less time this is due to a multitude of factors one of which is our obsession with technology. We are constantly looking at bright screens for far too long and until late at night which can mess up our circadian rhythm and natural sleep cycle.

So, by taking a supplement that can actively help improve our bodies natural sleep processes and rhythm whilst also paying attention to the negative factors affecting our sleep we can begin to get our sleep back on track.

Here at Enhanced Biotics we take pride in our CBD range ensuring quality above all else. We have one job and that’s enhancing your wellbeing.

Our aim is to provide our customers with the highest quality, natural cannabinoid extracts from Industrial Hemp. All of our CBD oil-based products contain no more than trace elements of THC (less than 0.2%) and they are all tested thoroughly.

Our products are Gluten Free, some of our products are suitable for Vegans, non-GMO, Organic and Lactose-Free. There are absolutely no additives either!. If you would like to know more about CBD, please feel free to check out www.enhancedbiotics.co.uk and speak to one of our team members.

*CBD is a natural supplement and should only be taken as a supplement. Please always consult your doctor first before taking any form of supplement.

How to Pack for a Weekend Getaway!

Who wants to be lugging around heavy luggage at the airport or train station? Nobody. To avoid this situation when you’re planning a weekend away — whether it’s just a staycation in your own town or you’re crossing country borders — pack light. But, what does that look like in reality? The key to packing for a shorter trip is to focus on the flexibility of what you’re bringing. Think about clothing, accessories, or bags and their ability to transition from day to night.

Getaway

Here are some tips for making the most of your next weekend getaway:

1. Versatile footwear

Ideally, you won’t bring more than just a couple of pairs of shoes to get you through your trip. For example, some slip-on sneakers are a great option that work for a variety of different activities. If you’re not the planning type, choosing one pair of shoes to bring helps eliminate decision fatigue so you can focus on having fun. Plus, it saves space in your bag.

2. Bags within bags

Plan out your outfits beforehand so you never have to spend time deciding on a look for the day. Then, once you’ve got your attire picked out, use a packing cube to compress everything down. Keep your outfits in a separate bag for each day.

3. Snacks for on-the-go

If you don’t want to overspend on airport food and make multiple stops for food, bring your own snacks! Larabars or GoMacro Bars offer a little sweetness and protein to keep you going strong.

4. Leather jacket

Always a little chilly? A leather jacket is a chic accompaniment to any outfit. Pair it with a white tee and loose jeans for a casual look. Or, dress up a going-out outfit with this devil-may-care layer. It’s perfect for either day or night.

So, what are you waiting for? Channel your own James Dean and live on the dark side. Even if it’s just for the weekend.

5. A weekender bag

As much as it’s tempting to rely on that ripped duffel bag once again, why not level up your weekender status with a nice bag that will actually last you through multiple trips? Herschel bags are the perfect bag for any length of travel. Not your style? Instead, opt for a Kate Spade bag or a simple travel backpack.

Weekender bag

6. Toiletries

It’s important to keep your toiletries minimal. Why? At the end of the day, if you forget a toothbrush or moisturizer – it’s not the end of the world. You can easily replace those through the hotel you stay at or a quick run to a pharmacy will also do the trick.

7. Portable charger

If you’re planning to be out of the hotel room or Airbnb all day, make sure to have a portable charger to save you from being without a phone during the day. Especially if you’re planning on going out at night and need a Lyft or Uber later, your phone is going to be important to have.

8. Copies of important papers

Even if you’re just going on a weekend, always get copies of all important documents. Passports, IDs, plane tickets, train tickets, event tickets – always have a backup copy, just in case. There are plenty of scanning apps like Genius Scan and ScanBot that make making digital copies very easy. Peace of mind, after all, is priceless.

9. Medicine

If you take a prescription medicine (or maybe just vitamin C gummies), don’t forget to bring those with you. An organized pill box prevents you from having to bring entire bottles of medicine with you on your trip.

10. Swimsuit

Of course, this depends on the season you’re traveling. But, you might want to bring a swimsuit regardless of when you travel in case your hotel has a heated pool.

11. Workout gear

If you’re the type that likes to stay fit on vacation or if you like to start your day off with a run, pack in some workout gear. Most athletic clothes can be easily packed away so you won’t have to worry about added weight or bulk. Even though it’s a vacation, you can still exercise if you need that pump to get you stoked for the rest of the day’s activities.

Takeaways

If you are packing for a weekend trip away, keep your luggage light and pare down to the holiday essentials. You don’t want to be bogged down by too much stuff to keep track of while you’re moving around and trying to explore a new place. Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be ready for an amazing getaway!

Benefits of CBD oil to Human Brain!

There’s been much hype over the positive effects of marijuana in the past few years and for good reason. Aside from being a relatively mild source of recreation, plenty of previous research point to the confounding benefits of the plant, specifically its chemical component called CBD or cannabidiol.

Essentially, cannabidiol is a compound found in cannabis that science has found to have significant potential in treating a shocking variety of ailments, including chronic pain, inflammation, seizures, psychosis, anxiety, and a lot of other neurological diseases.

Cannabis oil

Given that society is now slowly becoming more open to discussions on mental health, many are slowly retreating from the stigmatized associations with the drug and warming up to its potential as a promising source of relief—if not, cure to a wide array of anxiety disorders.

In the US alone, anxiety disorders affect 18.1 percent of the population or 40 million American adults. It’s also uncommon for someone diagnosed with anxiety disorder to be depressed. Additionally, around 44.7 million suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These alarming figures prompt the search for substances like CBD and other therapies and medical interventions that can help ease the suffering of millions.

But before you consider CBD as the panacea to mental illness, it’s important to know just how exactly does this drug affects the body.

What Is CBD?

Primarily, cannabidiol, or CBD, is a type of cannabinoid, a class of diverse chemical compounds. These compounds exist naturally in the human body and in plants such as cannabis. When these cannabinoids bind with cannabinoid receptors present in the membrane of cells, they influence the workings of the cells directly or indirectly.

Various studies have probed into the effects of such indirect influence on the mechanisms of the cell and found the following effects.

CBD Helps Protect Neurons from Degenerating

In different laboratory-controlled settings, cannabidiol has shown the capacity to protect neurons, or your brain cells, from degeneration. Neural degeneration is one of the leading causes of dreaded illnesses such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. CBD does this by supporting normal cellular function and supporting your body’s natural immune response.

Additionally, it has also been shown to promote the repair of cells and help assist with healthy aging.

CBD Helps Relieve Pain

The analgesic effect of cannabidiol is perhaps one of the most talked about benefits of marijuana. A big part of this phenomenon can be attributed to the opioid crisis or the rapid increase in the use of prescription and nonprescription opioid drugs in the US in the past few decades.

Opioids have been widely used to treat chronic pain, but the vastly documented harmful effects of opioid use have urged many patients to seek nonaddictive alternatives. CBD filled this gap. Due to CBD oil showing great promise in the lab, patients on chronic pain medications are now asking their doctors about the possibility of acquiring it as pain medication. Unlike THC, cannabis’s psychoactive counterpart, CBD, does not cause a high.

CBD works by interacting with your immune system and brain receptors. When your brain receptors react with CBD, they form anti-inflammatory effects that reduce pain. The good thing about CBD oil is you that you can keep taking it but not build a tolerance for it. This solves the addiction problem that was the primary issue with opioids.

CBD Helps Prevent Tumors

Over the years, plenty of research efforts have been dedicated to the anticancer potential of THC and CBD. Today, cannabinoid treatments on human patients are in their early stages, but even in their initial phase, there has been a demonstrated significant success in both substances’ abilities to mitigate the growth and metastasis of cancer cells.

CBD, especially, has shown great promise in slowing down or even stopping the spreading of cancer cell while THC has been shown to aid the shrinking of existing tumors.

CBD Shows Potential for Treating Anxiety

Chemical interactions of CBD and the human brain have been proven to be productive for treating symptoms of anxiety. The neurological impact to patients with PTSD has also been explored, with positive results. Although much work is yet to be done to validate the initial outcomes, many people have started to seek marijuana, especially the pure CBD form, for their mental health issues.

Advice on Using CBD Oil

All these benefits show much promise to the many wonders of cannabidiol, but also consider the caveat. A lot of anecdotes and stories have been going around without substantial medical evidence to the claim. Here are some tips you can follow when considering CBD for you or your loved one.

● When looking for CBD information, be sure to target researches that focus on CBD oil alone instead of cannabis in general.

● Always investigate the source of information on CBD and if it is reliable.

● Buying CBD oil online can be risky. You are not always sure if what you’re getting is really pure.

● Ask your doctor first for this option.

CBD Oil and Workplace Considerations

Workplace policies may still not allow marijuana use among employees, especially if you live in states where marijuana is not yet legal. Fortunately, urine tests are not designed to detect CBD but rather THC, its psychoactive counterpart. Therefore, there is no need to worry. However, if you’d rather be safe than sorry, there are steps you can take to pass strict drug tests, including proven detox processes and synthetic urine options.

Final Word

CBD oil is a promising treatment option for a vast array of medical afflictions. But because the medical aspect of marijuana treatment in the US is still in its baby stage, it’s still best to question your options.

Risks are not fully eliminated, and there is always the doubt of authenticity when it comes to the source of this form of medication. So seek professional advice before anything else, and proceed with a probing mind when acquiring your own CBD substance.

對牙齒有害的食物!

除了保持良好的口腔衛生習慣,如經常刷牙,使用牙線和進行一年兩次的牙科檢查之外,飲食習慣對於口腔健康起著重要作用。牙齒像身體的其他部位一樣,同樣需要必要的維生素,礦物質和適當的口腔護理,以保持健康。為了獲得強壯亮白的牙齒,以下有些你需要避免或減少進食的食物和飲料:

1.硬糖
大多數糖果都含有糖粉,會粘在牙齒表面而引起牙菌斑細菌。這些化合物會產生酸,酸會侵食牙齒的保護塗層而引致蛀牙,有機會導致不適和感染。硬糖對此尤其有害,因為吃硬糖需要不斷咀嚼,這比起普通食物粘牙齒上的時間更長,會直接影響牙齒的健康。

2. 冰
大多數人都會因無聊或習慣而咀嚼冰。可是,咀嚼堅硬物質是另一種可能會損害牙釉質並使牙齒隨著時間的增長而變得對冷飲和熱飲更容易敏感。

3.酸性食物
過量攝入酸性食物,如柑橘類水果和果汁會較易產生酸;如果不用水及時沖洗,會腐蝕牙齒。即使是飲用凍檸水也可能對您的牙齒健康不利,因為檸檬酸會使您的牙齒變弱。此外,柑橘類水果和果汁也會刺激口腔而引致潰瘍。

4.某些咖啡和茶
咖啡和茶對健康有多種益處,但某些咖啡/茶的飲料含有額外添加的糖和糖漿,促使味道更有吸引力。這些添加劑會影響牙齒並使口腔乾燥,減少唾液的產生,最終導致口臭。

5.澱粉類零食
澱粉類零食包括薯片,餅乾和糕點,這些食物中含有不必要的澱粉,可能會夾在牙齒之間。具有粘性成分的食物特別難以僅用牙刷清潔,這會導致牙齒隨時間衰退。為避免這些食物的影響,最佳選擇是結合刷牙和牙線進行徹底清潔。

6.酒精
與某些茶和咖啡的影響相類似,酒精也可以抑制唾液的產生。這是口腔防止細菌粘附在牙齒上的自然保護方法。除了出現脫水徵狀,酒精可能會令人嘔吐,嘔吐物含有可以侵蝕牙齒琺瑯質的胃酸。

總結
日常飲食習慣在我們的整體健康中起著關鍵的作用,包括口腔健康。某些含有糖的食物會比其他食物停留在口腔的時間更久,因而產生酸並形成牙菌斑和引起口腔細菌。如果牙齒沒有得到適當的護理,這些酸會侵蝕並損害牙齒的外觀,使它們更容易受到感染和牙齦相關疾病等更嚴重的影響。

為了獲得健康的牙齒和牙齦,多攝取一些富含鈣質的食物,如綠葉蔬菜,乳製品,以及蘋果和黃瓜等鬆脆的食物,願大家可以永遠綻放健康美麗的笑容。
