  • It is certainly healthier than soda. It does have a lot of sodium; you are better off with seltzer water.

  • Carbonated drinks generally have phosphoric acid, which gives it a sharp, crisp flavor. Phosophoric acid is usually a low ph (or very acidic) acid that has been known to wear away at your tooth enamel, and some studies indicate it leaches calcium from your bones.

    I love sparkling sodas and club soda-- so I wait about an hour to brush my teeth (you should actually do that for any acidic food--otherwise you risk brushing away bits of enamel) and make sure I take my calcium every day.
