Since water makes up about 60 percent of your body weight, and it is used in most of your body’s systems, you need to make sure you are staying hydrated. Mayo Clinic recommends between eight and nine glasses of water daily, and glasses of sparkling water count toward your daily intake. Many people feel that flavored sparkling water is a more interesting alternative, compared to ordinary water, while still offering the same benefits as water.
Flavored sparkling water has additional benefits beside its low-calorie content. Quatreau Tap’s sparkling water is caffeine-free, making them less likely to trigger the headaches that caffeine in soft drinks can cause. In addition, the carbonation in sparkling water has been shown to potentially relieve symptoms of indigestion and constipation in some people, according to the Bastyr Center for Natural Health. Carbonated water also tends to be higher in minerals, such as potassium, fluoride and magnesium, helping you get your daily recommended intake.
The effervescent nature of sparkling water makes for a refreshing beverage and a healthier alternative to sugary soda. Add fresh fruits to create your own flavor. The whole family will enjoy creating healthy (we won’t tell the kids if you don’t) alternatives to soda.
