Is Drinking Sparkling Water Healthy?

You already know water from a commercial sparkling water system is fun. The bubbles tickle your nose and dance on your tongue. But is it healthy?

Sparkling water is also known by a host of other names, including carbonated water, club soda, soda water, seltzer water, and fizzy water. It is simply regular water (which is called still water or flat water) infused with carbon dioxide gas to create suspended bubbles. Bottled kinds can sometimes have other ingredients, such as minerals and salt. (Natura sparkling water is just good ol’ H2O with some CO2 added).

Consumption of sparkling water is sharply on the rise, much of it due to consumers who are looking to ditch sugary sodas, leery about artificial sweeteners, but still wanting some effervescence with their refreshment. Sparkling water fits the bill perfectly.

Sugary drinks increase the risk for diabetes, heart disease, and other serious illness. Sparkling water will always be a better-for-you beverage alterative.

There have been reports that some dentists do not like sparkling water because they believe it can erode tooth enamel. There is no conclusive data. Some studies indicate sparkling water is only slightly more likely to harm teeth than regular water. Nearly everyone agrees, however, that the sugar in traditional soda is much worse for teeth—some estimates put it by a factor of 100.

Sparkling water has benefits beyond its absence of sugar. It increases the feeling of fullness (thanks to those bubbles!), which can help people avoid the urge to snack between meals. One peculiar study even determined that bubbles in sparkling water stimulate the nerves needed to swallow, making it easier to do so. People who experience constipation may find that drinking sparkling water helps relieve their symptoms. A filtered water machine like Natura also filters out harmful particulates and pollutants from water as it adds the sparkle of carbon dioxide.

At minimum, there is little to no evidence that drinking sparkling water is harmful, and several studies that indicate there are health benefits related to its consumption.
