Is Seltzer Water Good for You?Hunter Worsfold
There is a growing trend in the United States that shows people are drinking more and more sparkling, or seltzer, water. It is most notable from the beverage industry showing that they are making $4 billion from seltzer water yearly. As popular as it has been over recent years, is it as good for you as normal drinking water?
Experts don’t say it is for a couple different reasons. The carbonated water has C02 in it which turns into carbonic acid when it mixes with the saliva in your mouth. When that happens it actually lowers the pH level in your mouth. Another thing about the carbonated water is that it has shown to erode your teeth, not as much as fruit juice or soda, however. Other seltzer waters can also have a flavor for taste, which makes it even more acidic. Gas, bloating and acid reflux have all been linked to the bubbly water and because of these factors, experts say to treat seltzer water as a treat and try not to consistently drink it.
