Still or Sparkling – What’s Your Preference in the War of the Waters?

Cooleraid • 02/11/2022

We all know the benefits of drinking water, from basic and all important hydration to helping with weight loss and increasing energy levels. So, when carbon dioxide is added to water to make it sparkle, do any of the health benefits decrease? The simple answer is ‘No’.

So, Sparkling Water is Good for You?

How?

Sparkling water gets it fizziness by adding pressurised carbon dioxide to regular water. This has led to questions about the health benefits as it can be compared to other fizzy drinks adorning our supermarket shelves. There is no evidence to suggest that sparkling water is bad for our health. After all, water (sparkling or still) is free of additives like sugar and salt.

Dental Health

Compared to other fizzy soft drinks, sparkling water is a good choice; carbonation makes drinks more acidic, but in the case of water you would need to consume copious amounts for this to be a problem, particularly for dental health.

Myth

There is a myth that suggests that carbonated drinks can weaken bones, but this is untrue and therefore not relevant for sparkling water.

Beware

One thing you should be aware of is if you purchase sparkling water in a plastic bottle, these bottles could contain plasticisers, which could release carcinogens into the water if left in sunlight or stored at high temperatures.

Benefits

Both still and sparkling water have so many health benefits whichever type you choose to drink; it can basically come down to personal preference. But both will aid:

  • Weight loss – Many of us think we’re hungry when in fact we’re thirsty. Drink plenty of water as this will take up space in your stomach making your feel fuller. Always have a glass nearby so that you can sip throughout the day.
  • Digestion – Both types of water will aid digestion and can help to relieve constipation by loosening hard stools and helping them move through the digestive tract more easily. However, if you suffer with sensitive digestion problems then sparkling water may cause you to feel bloated so perhaps still water is better for you.
  • Hydration – Drinking the recommended 2 litres of water a day will help keep you in rude health! It will regulate body temperature, help to lubricate joints, deliver nutrients to cells and hydrate organs to ensure they function properly as well as improving your quality of sleep and mental health, and keep your skin glowing.
