Hi I have noticed that certain powders feel very caustic to enamel (I have tried most of them sublingually). One example is NAC. Though I am neither a chemist or a dentist I can't see it being too reactive as it is not a salt. Another powder that feels very acidic would be ALCAR. Once again, not a salt so I fail to see how it would actually be acidic?

 

I regularly mix all of my powders in a sugar free juice (Kirkland Vitarain) several times a day and down the solution. A few minutes ago I tried adding sodium bicarbonate. Subjectively, it tasted awful but my teeth felt normal afterwards.

 

The average juice contains up to all of these:

noopept

NSI-189

fucoxanthin

caffeine

theanine

ALCAR

ALA

NAC

uridine monophosphate

creatine monohydrate

taurine

 

Could sodium bicarbonate react with these in solution? Are any of these powders even bad for teeth in the first place, and if so will adding NaHCO3 help?

I doubt very much that any of that stuff is damaging the enamel on your teeth. So long as we keep our teeth clean with regular brushing and avoid foods with white sugar in them, our saliva should take care of the pH in our mouth, in my opinion. Perhaps your teeth feel tacky because some of these powders are a little bitter-tasting. But it should be nothing to worry about. Just rinse with water afterwards, if you are bothered..

A lot of things can damage the teeth either via low pH which demineralizes the tooth or by feeding the wrong microorganisms that live in the enamels who then produce acids that corrupt the enamel.

What is important to keep in mind is that the dental care has already come a very long way towards escape velocity so you dont need to worry. If one tooth breaks you can get a crown or a filling. If you destroy all teeth you can replace them with implants. If you blast your entire mandible of you can get one 3-d printed out of titanium and repair it.

One could only wish that the rest of the body could be replaced and taken care of like the teeth can.
