Sparkling water effects on Body
Our body needs to be in an alkaline state to function properly. Sparkling water contains carbonic acid which is a weaker acid. Therefore it slightly increases our pH.
Although there is natural sparkling water available from Perrier brands( they capture natural spring water which is high in sulfur and minerals) they are still mildly carbonated.
It is slightly acidic to a pH of 3-4 and your body can tolerate these levels of acidity. Lungs remove the excess carbon dioxide. Therefore, Sparkling water is not bane to your immunity.
