The health benefits of sparkling water include all the benefits of drinking water and, of course, proper hydration tops the list. Did you know water supports your body in many ways?
Here are some less obvious sparkling water health benefits.
Have you ever enjoyed a drink of sparkling water to settle your stomach? It turns out, you’re in good company. There’s scientific evidence to back up the positive effects. A research report shared by the National Center for Biotechnology Information found that sparkling water reduces dyspepsia, also known as indigestion and eases constipation. The cherry on top? Sparkling water also improves gall bladder emptying, and a gall bladder that empties well is less likely to develop gallstones.
Claims that drinking soda and soft drinks can leach calcium from your bones and decrease bone density made a lot of people worry that drinking sparkling water would have the same effect. However, the bubbles are not the root of the problem and while the jury is out, most experts argue that it’s either the phosphoric acid or the caffeine in the soda that’s to blame. Sparkling water contains neither of these ingredients.
The American Dental Association (ADA) published a research article on the pH values of popular beverages. The verdict? Sparkling water is the least of your dental concerns. Speaking to the New York Times in 2016, one of the study’s authors confirmed the pH of most sparkling waters didn’t cross the tooth enamel erosion danger-zone. He sets the threshold for tooth erosion at a pH of lower than 4. Well-known soft drinks have a pH of around 2.4. Sparkling water has an average pH of 5. This is above the low pH levels that are likely to harm your teeth.
Filtered, sparkling water can help your customers overcome the taste issues that may put people off tap water. Add a squeeze of lemon, a sprig of fresh mint, even a thin slice of cucumber to add flavor to your sparkling water. The possibilities are endless when you indulge in a little creative mixing and matching. Invest in a Purezza system to enhance the dining experience in your cafe or restaurant today.
