Sparkling water, is it really wet?

I have been wondering if sparkling water, wasser mit gas, fizzy water, soda water, mineral water and the like “count” towards your minimum daily water intake.

I started keeping track of things like water intake when I realized I just wasn’t drinking very much water. Sure, I get water from the fruits I take in, but over all, I was only consuming a quarter of my daily minimum, at best.

That minimum? Lots of sources say 8 glasses/64 oz. a day. Seems like a lot right? It’s not. Apparently our bodies guzzle up every drop. I was surprised to learn that if your urine is anything but almost clear, you haven’t had enough water.

In general though, carbonated water is water. The carbonation is not a diuretic, so your body uses the water the same way it uses plain flat water. So, have that San Pellegrino, and make your body happy!
