Is Carbonated (Sparkling) Water Good or Bad for You?

Carbonated water, AKA sparkling water, has become increasingly more popular in the last few years as a refreshing alternative to plain water or a healthier alternative to sugar sweetened beverages.

With its fizz and variety of flavors, it has become a go-to choice for many people.

In this story, we will discuss the potential benefits and drawbacks of consuming carbonated water in order to help you make an informed decision on consuming carbonated water.

Carbonated water is water that has been infused with carbon dioxide bubbles.

Carbonated water is created by dissolving carbon dioxide gas under pressure, creating its characteristic fizziness. Hence, the nickname “sparkling water”.

It is worth mentioning not all carbonated water is the same. Plain carbonated water is water infused with carbon dioxide, with no additional calories or additives.

However, other types of carbonated water like seltzer or “sparkling water” may have additives like natural fruit flavors, added sugars, or artificial sweeteners.

The various kinds of sparkling water include club soda, sparkling mineral water, tonic water, soda water and seltzer water.
