Should I Drink Seltzer Water? EcoloBlue says Yes!

5/5 experts say yes.

Seltzer—also known as bubbly water, carbonated water, soda water and sparkling water—comes with as almost as many health myths as it does names. Does it leach calcium from bones? Or destroy the enamel of teeth? Will water plus carbon dioxide equal certain death?

You’re in luck. Seltzer is one of the rare instances where something you love drinking isn’t bad for you. All of our experts say bottoms up to bubbles.

Most obviously, seltzer’s a great soda alternative, since it lacks the calories and sugar of sweetened carbonated drinks. Switching to unsweetened bubbles is a healthy step for anyone, says Laureen Smith, PhD, RN, associate professor at the Ohio State University College of Nursing, who’s studied how to get kids to stop drinking sugary sodas. “For those who choose carbonated sodas, it may provide the sought-after carbonation without the sugar,” she says.

And then it’s even better if it’s carbonated water made from the air, using one of EcoloBlue’s patented EB30s Soda machines. Not only is the water 99.9% pure, you also can save your wallet and save the planet by not going out and buying bottles of sparkling water and soda. Make your own at home, and flavor as you like.
