Which is Better Sparkling or Still Water?

Hydration is essential for a healthy life; many people prefer to drink chilled still water while others would rather sparkling water, something with a bit more fizz. Sparkling water is water that has been infused with carbon dioxide gas under pressure. Filtered sparkling systems are an excellent, natural, and healthier alternative to sugary drinks.

Still and sparkling options are as healthy as each other and the choice usually comes down to taste. However, instead of having to choose, you can have both! Billi systems can provide filtered still and sparkling water at the touch of a button, instantly producing a refreshing drink.



There are some myths that sparkling water is less healthy than still water, however, that is not the case. Here are some benefits to drinking sparkling water:

Carbonated water is a fresh substitute to soft drinks that are often high in sugar and pose various health risks. High sugar content can lead to high cholesterol and tooth decay. Sparkling water can also help increase your daily intake of water. Many people may find that drinking 8 glasses of still water can feel like a chore. So, filtered sparkling water can assist you to stay hydrated.

A glass of sparkling water can also help you resist the urge of reaching for a pack of sweet afternoon snacks. Sparkling water can extend or create a feeling of fullness after a meal. This means you will feel fuller for longer and therefore won’t snack as much or as often!

Studies have shown reports that carbonated water significantly reduces symptoms of chronic digestive issues. It has shown to reduce constipation and improve bowel movement.


Mix It Up

Plain sparkling water may be a bit boring for some people. However, that doesn’t mean it has to that way. The following ideas will have you investing in a Billi hydration system in no time:

  • Add herbs, such as, mint or rosemary to your sparkling water
  • Or for a sweet twist, add some crushed berries
  • A slice of watermelon and some basil leaves added to sparkling water makes a great mocktail
  • Add some lemon and limes slices for a zesty glass of refreshment
  • Cucumber ribbons added to sparkling water look great, and cucumber infused water promotes hydration, lower blood pressure and aids weight loss.
