7) Watch Out For Bubbles in Your Belly
Like soda and other carbonated drinks, seltzer can cause bloating—and if you consume a lot of it in a short period of time, your body might be unable to handle all that gas. While there are no major studies proving that bubbles do or don’t contribute to stomach pain and discomfort, it can’t hurt to stay on top of your consumption.
8) How Much Sugar Should I Be Drinking?
One 12-ounce can of regular soda contains around 10 teaspoons of sugar—and sometimes more. Seltzer has no added sugar and is carbonated naturally by its source of carbonation. So if you want to avoid sugar while still getting a satisfyingly bubbly beverage, opt for sparkling or flavored seltzer instead of soft drinks. Another benefit?
