Health Benefits of Sparkling Water

You all know how much I love water. I also really love sparkling water. We call it "bubbly" water at my house, mix it liberally with fruit juice and tell the girls they're drinking spritzers. It sounds so much fancier than watered down juice.

I have been wondering lately if sparkling water is harmful or beneficial, since it is just water with CO2 added to it to make it carbonated. Lucky for me the Times reports that it is not only equally hydrating as flat water but that it can also keep calcium locked in the bones.

So drink up! A little splash of "bubbly" water is good for you. It might even help relieve your upset stomach.

Fit's Tip: You should avoid Club Soda though. It has lots of sodium added to it in an attempt to recreate the taste of homemade seltzer from the good old days.
