Soon it will be in the 90’s again. For nine months or so. SIGH. Begging the question – can I hydrate as well with other liquids?

I have always preferred sparkling water to still (boring) water but have been warned it might not be as good for me as plain water. Some brands do have considerable sodium – but some also have calcium!

SO, is drinking the fizzy stuff as good for us as regular water?

“There isn’t any research in this area, but theoretically carbonated water would hydrate the body in the same way as still water, and in some ways may be more beneficial because for individuals it may taste better, which would allow them to be consuming more water throughout the day,” Gabrielle Giersch, associate director of education at the Korey Stringer Institute at the University of Connecticut told the folks at The Takeout.

I am much more likely to reach for a can of La Croix than a glass of room-temperature, or even iced, tap water during the work day.
