What is better thirst quencher: sparkling water or plain
The stronger the heat, the more actively we look for ways to quench our thirst in a tasty and healthy way. Huffington post understood, is it true that carbonated water is more useful and better cope with this task than ordinary water?
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends soda as a useful alternative to soda and other high-calorie beverages. Carbon dioxide is dissolved in carbonated water under pressure. Carbon dioxide is the element that creates bubbles.
Below are several myths associated with the use of soda water.
Myth1: Sparkling water destroys tooth enamel
According to research published in the journal American Dental Association, in carbonated water, the pH level is such that it does not destroy the tooth enamel. But this does not apply to other carbonated drinks, such as colas. Such sweet soda can damage the health of the oral cavity.
Examine the soda label. It is best to choose water that does not contain flavors, sugar and citric acid. These ingredients are a threat to oral health.
Myth2: Sparkling water washes calcium from bones and can cause osteoporosis.
Studies claim that soda intake flushes bone minerals, especially in women. But this applies only to sweet soda, not soda. An experiment was conducted. One group of people drank a liter of sparkling water a day for 8 weeks, and the other group drank a liter of plain water. At the end of the experiment, scientists did not find differences in loss of bone tissue density between the two groups.
Myth3: Sparkling water does not quench thirst as ordinary water
Good news: sparkling water quenches thirst just like ordinary water. American magazine Clinical Nutrition compared soda and other popular drinks (cola, juice, beer, coffee, tea and milk) and found that there is no difference between them in terms of quenching.
These results do not contradict the information that people who use tea and coffee suffer from dehydration. Studies have shown that regular and moderate consumption of these drinks do not adversely affect the body's work. People who drink 3-6 cups of coffee a day do not lose water. However, irregular consumption of caffeine in the form of tea and coffee can lead to dehydration.
But back to the sparkling water. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends drinking carbonated water as an alternative to sugary drinks. This is a good way to reduce the risk of obesity.
The only case where you might want to choose plain water instead of sparkling is during operation: carbonation in sparkling water can cause an accumulation of gases in the body and lead to bloating and discomfort.
Therefore, if you have to save yourself from thirst this summer, you can safely choose sparkling water. It is moisturizing, healthy and does not harm teeth and bones.
