You might be thinking Okay, now this is a stretch.
We respect your thoughts. However, our crack team of health benefits researchers (we don’t have one) spent months (they didn’t) scouring the data on this, the sleuths that they are.
But for real, there are health benefits of sparkling water.
Whether you prefer seltzer, mineral water, or club soda, these bubbly drinks are a great way to stay hydrated throughout the day, and July in Chicagoland feels like the furthest thing from January.

Sparkling Water Is a Great Way to Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated is essential for…well, being alive, and heat illness is serious, and chronic dehydration can lead to digestive issues and complications with the heart and kidneys.
Sometimes plain water can be a bit boring, whereas there are many delicious sparkling water types. If regular water doesn’t do it for you, load up on the fizzy stuff.
It Can Help You Lose and Maintain a Healthy Weight
Sparkling water can help you lose weight in several ways.
It helps reduce your overall calorie intake. Many people find that sparkling water is more satisfying than sugary drinks, so they end up drinking fewer calories throughout the day.
Sparkling water is also known to boost your metabolism. The carbonation in sparkling water stimulates the digestive system, which can increase the number of calories you burn each day.
This is good.
Sparkling Water Is a Good Source of Minerals Like Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium
I think if we’re not careful, sparkling water may start growing a huge head. Still, we must continue with its benefits.
Sparkling water is naturally infused with minerals like potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which keeps your body healthy and hydrated. In addition, it can prevent tooth decay and promote healthy digestive function.
Speaking of Digestion…
Sparkling water can actually improve digestion. The carbonation in sparkling water promotes the release of stomach acids, which breaks down food and aids in digestion.
But we’re not done! The extra hydration from the sparkling water can combat constipation, too. We won’t get into details, but if you want them, read this article by WebMd.
See, you can count on us to make something like sparkling water sound fun. As always, beware of the kinds with added sugar or artificial sweeteners. Otherwise, forget all of the above.
