Is sparkling flavored water a good alternative to soda?

is it healthy


"carbonation is not good for you." not according to healthline... "No evidence suggests that carbonated or sparkling water is bad for you. It's not that harmful to dental health, and it seems to have no effect on bone health. Interestingly, a carbonated drink may even enhance digestion by improving swallowing ability and reducing constipation."

    It will depend on the sugar content.

    Been drinking it for years-gave up soda long ago. It is cheap-like $5 per 12 one litre bottles. And it is healthier than soda by a long shot.

    If you like it as much as soda then yes, it's a good alternative. I don't drink either normally so son't have an opinion.

    Is it healthy? Probably not if you buy it in a store - most of the stuff I've seen contains sugar. If you were going to infuse your own water with fruit then yes, it would be.

    It is carbonated .. that's what makes the bubbles. Same thing with sugar. Sparkling flavored water MIGHT have less sugar, and that is an improvement over soda.  But carbonation is not good for you.

    Learn to like water . THAT is healthy to drink.
