Endurance training has become popular over the past decade and this has increased the consumption of dietary supplements and energy drinks to enhance performance.Literature has revealed the ill effects of these on the athlete’s oral health. The aim of the present study is to assess the oral health status of gyming individuals who consume energy diet and drinks and to estimate its relevance with salivary α –Amylase and Ceruloplasmin levels. Thirty students who have been exercising regularly since the last one year, were included in this study. The participants were divided into 3 groups of 10 members each - controls, not consuming dietary supplements and dietary supplement consumers. Oral health status was recorded using DMFT, CPITN and Plaque index along with estimation of salivary biomarkers. The results of study showed no significant correlation between the consumption of energy food and drinks in exercising individuals and its effect on oral health status. Though consumption of energy drinks and food during exercise make individuals more prone to unfavourable oral health, maintenance of good oral hygiene and utilisation of dental services can limit the negative effects.
