Sure Syfo Naturally Flavored Sparkling Waters are a delight on the tongue — healthy and refreshing with no sugar, sodium, artificial sweeteners, preservatives or other additives. But did you know that those delicious bubbles themselves carry their own health benefits?

In a recent article on Livestrong.com, these other great benefits of drinking sparkling water were highlighted:

Helps You Stay Hydrated

We’ve said it throughout our site and Livestrong.com agrees — water is essential for good health. It keeps you hydrated, is necessary for moving nutrients throughout your body, keeps you feeling full between meals and reduces fluid retention. Most Americans don’t drink enough water, according to dietitian Sheila Tucker from Boston College. The amount of water you need to drink each day depends on age, gender, food choices, activity, weather and health conditions. In general, you should aim for 1 quart of water for every 50 pounds of body weight, or 3 quarts a day for a 150-pound person. Adding sparkling water to your drinking routine may help you meet your daily fluid needs to stay hydrated.

Improves Digestion

If you’re feeling a little sick to your stomach after eating, drinking a glass of carbonated water might help, according to a 2002 study published in the “European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology.” Indigestion, also known as dyspepsia, is a term used to describe a variety of symptoms that occur in the upper abdominal area and may include bloating, nausea, vomiting or quickly feeling full after eating.

Keeps Your Body In Sync

The same 2002 study also found an improvement in constipation in the study participants who drank carbonated water. When you’re dealing with constipation, you know to up your intake of foods high in fiber. But getting enough fluids is as important as fiber when it comes to constipation. Fluids, such as sparkling water, help the fiber work better in your gut and keeps you regular.

So when you’re enjoying a cold glass of Syfo Naturally Flavored Sparkling Water you can feel refreshed and good about your health at the same time. Click here to try some great Syfo recipes to enjoy while staying healthy and hydrated.

In California, a complaint filed in a California federal court charges that The Coca-Cola Company, with the help of the American Beverage Association, is deceiving consumers about the harms of consuming Coke and other sugar-sweetened beverages.  The suit charges that the beverage giant and its trade association are engaged in an unlawful campaign of deception to mislead and confuse the public about the science linking consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of the nonprofit Praxis Project, centers around the claim that Coca-Cola and the ABA mislead consumers by claiming that there is no science linking sugar-sweetened beverages to obesity and related diseases.  According to the suit, Coke and the ABA have adopted a strategy of shifting the focus away for these conditions from sugar-sweetened beverages toward a lack of exercise.  The campaign strategy also led consumers to believe that all calories are the same, when science indicates that sugary drinks play a distinct role in the obesity epidemic.

The complaint alleges that Coke launched a sophisticated integrated marketing plan by funding and publicizing biased scientific research,  orchestrating a drumbeat of deceptive ABA press releases on science and health, and running false and misleading advertising campaigns.  Citing a report in the New York Times, the suit contends that between 2010 and 2015 alone, Coca-Cola spent $120 million on research and other projects aimed at confusing consumers about, or denying, the science linking health risks to soda and other sugary drinks.
