These five are strange but very useful O, check on them below:

1. Energy drinks do not necessarily give you energy!

Reports reveal energy drinks contain up to five times more caffeine than coffee but this comes with a side effect as the boost they seemingly provide is fleeting as they only shoot your blood sugar for a little time only to crash it sooner than you expect leaving you sluggish and irritable.

2. Don't brush your teeth immediately after drinks and meals.

It's best not to brush immediately after eating or drinking this is because  acidic foods like sports/energy drinks, can drinks, citrus fruits/juices, tomatoes and more contain acid that can soften the tooth enamel and brushing means acid effect might be fast affecting your enamel and the layer under it!

Experts suggest waiting at least 30 - 60 minutes before brushing after eating or drinking.

3. Drink water when you feel bloated

When you feel bloated, drink more water! Where some people think drinking water might make the condition worse, it actually relieves it because when you stay dehydrated for instance, the body survives strongly on the water the body have causing the discomfort so sometimes, water may be all you need to get back comfortable.

4. Do not drink water during/immediately after eating

Drinking water while eating or immediately after disrupts digestion contrary to what people believe. It's best to drink like 1 hour before or after eating for proper digestion.

5. Diet Soda are not what they are, STOP IT

Contrary to beliefs, diet sodas do not help. Studies reveal people who drank diet sodas ate more food compared to people who drank normal sodas!
