Carbonated Drinks/ Information Share

Copied from email…https://www.healthyfollow.com/


Carbonated water is a refreshing beverage and a good alternative to sugary soft drinks. However, concerns have been raised that it may be bad for your health.

Let’s look at the health effects of carbonated water.

Carbonated water is acidic, but your body should maintain a stable, slightly alkaline pH no matter what you consume.

Sugar-sweetened carbonated beverages can erode tooth enamel, but plain carbonated water appears relatively harmless.

Carbonated water has benefits for digestion. It may improve swallowing, increase feelings of fullness and reduce constipation.

Drinking carbonated cola drinks may harm bone health, but plain sparkling water appears to have a neutral or positive effect.

There is currently no evidence that carbonated or sparkling water is bad for you. It is not really that harmful for dental health and seems to have no effect on bone health.

Interestingly, a carbonated drink may even enhance digestion by improving swallowing ability and reducing constipation.

It’s also a calorie-free beverage that causes a pleasurable bubbly sensation. Many people prefer it over still water.

There’s no reason to give up this beverage if you enjoy it. In fact, it may actually improve your overall health.

5 ways to speed up metabolism 

Metabolism is a term that describes all the chemical reactions in your body. These chemical reactions keep your body alive and functioning. However, the word metabolism is often used interchangeably with metabolic rate, or the number of calories you burn.

The higher it is, the more calories you burn and the easier it is to shed weight and keep it off.

Having a high metabolism can also give you energy and make you feel better.

Here are 5 easy ways to increase your metabolism.

1. Eating more protein can boost your metabolism so that you burn more calories. It can also help you eat less.

2. Drinking green tea or oolong tea may increase your metabolism. These teas may also help you shed weight and keep it off.

3. Eating spicy food could be beneficial for boosting your metabolism and help you maintain a healthy weight.

4. Lack of sleep can decrease the number of calories you burn, change the way you process sugar and disrupt your appetite-regulating hormones.

5. Lifting weights is important for building and retaining muscle. Higher amounts of muscle will result in a higher metabolism.

Making small lifestyle changes and incorporating these tips into your routine can increase your metabolism.
