LONDON July 5: Simply put, sparkling water is carbonated water. That is, it is water infused with carbon dioxide, either naturally or during production. The added carbon dioxide turns it to carbonic acid, giving it that fizzy sensation when on your tongue when you drink it.At present, there’s still not much research on this yet. Although the ones that exist state that sparkling water hydrates you just as much as still water, with nutritionists agreeing.
This makes perfect sense, considering that sparkly water is basically just water combined with bubbly carbon gas. However, these bubbles might make you feel full a little faster.
Here are some of its benefits, benign as they are:
Helps with digestive issues – For many people, a bubbly drink can aid an upset stomach from either illness, indigestion or even motion sickness. Research have also shown that sparkling water can help improve gall bladder emptying and constipation.
Better than soda – Because sparkling water doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners or sugar, it’s healthier than soda. Not to mention just as tasty and refreshing.
Added mineral content – Sparkling water also has the added benefits of having minerals, such as magnesium, which help keep our body performing at its best.
Blood sugar control – Per a 2015 study, drinking mineral water caused a significant decline serum glycoalbumin levels , which are related to blood sugar control. Bicarbonate in the body is also known to regulate our body’s glucose levels.
Overall, sparkling water is a pretty good beverage to drink if you ever want something new and refreshing. It also has health benefits, mild as they are.
However, at the end of the day, water is still the best, as the full feeling you get when drinking sparkling water might cause you to not drink as much water as you should. As always, everything should be in moderation.
