Carbonation and Healthy Beverages
Are carbonated beverages healthy for you? Is there a health risk in consuming carbonated beverages? What makes it confusing is that allcarbonated beverages are usually lumped into the same category. However, not all carbonated beverages are the same. In fact, all Syfo Beverages are made with water that has been purified through a unique, multi-step process using carbon and double-micron filtration, reverse osmosis, deionization, ozonation and UV sterilization. Unlike many carbonated beverages on the market, Syfo Beverages contain no additives such as sugar, artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, fluoride, caffeine, sodium, potassium, phosphoric, citric, tartaric or malic acids. Many of these additives have been implicated in diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, tooth decay, bone loss, and GI problems, so it’s important to know the differences between Syfo and other types of carbonated beverages.
There is no scientific evidence that ingesting carbonated beverages creates a pH imbalance in our blood or taxes our bodies. In truth, most CO2 in carbonated beverages typically doesn’t reach the digestive tract. The amount that does arrive there is quickly absorbed. In the process it also enhances the absorption of the liquid that contains it, which causes the gastrointestinal tract to empty at a faster than usual rate. This helps to account for the long-time belief (held as far back as ancient times) that carbonation can promote digestion and ease nausea.
Most of the CO2 in our blood is produced not by carbonated beverages, but by the body’s conversion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy. In other words, having CO2 move through the blood is a routine metabolic action. For more information, seehttp://www.fitnessandfreebies.com/fitness/carbonation.html.
