Drinking sparkling water is a good way to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes, according to a study published in the journal Circulation.
The study also found that people who drink sparkling water have a lower risk of death from heart disease and stroke.
Drinking sparkling water has been linked to a reduced risk of cardiovascular events, including cardiovascular death, and the risk of diabetes, but the new study by researchers from the University of Toronto looked at the association between sparkling water consumption and mortality in people over the age of 50.
Drinkers of water with higher concentrations of minerals, antioxidants and caffeine were found to be at lower risk.
The study found that drinking a glass of sparkling water per day reduced the risk for cardiovascular events by 30 per cent.
It also showed that people with higher blood pressure, who drank sparkling water more frequently, had a lower rate of death.
The authors of the study said that people should consider drinking sparkling waters more frequently in order to ensure their health.
“The drinking of sparkling drinks appears to lower the risk [of death] of older adults in particular,” the authors said.
“We observed a positive association between a consumption of sparkling waters and reduced mortality and stroke risk in a cohort of elderly men.”
Drinking one glass of water per week, or one glass daily, was linked to lower risk for stroke and cardiovascular events in the same cohort.
The researchers said that while the study did not have sufficient power to draw conclusions about whether sparkling water was good for the cardiovascular system, the results were interesting.
“Our results support the notion that consumption of water is associated with lower risk than previously assumed,” they said.
“There are several important caveats to our study, which are discussed below.”
The researchers cautioned that the association with cardiovascular events is not conclusive, and that more research was needed to determine if sparkling water helps to reduce mortality and mortality risk.
Drinks with more minerals and antioxidants may also lower blood pressure.
Drunkenness and other lifestyle factors have been linked with higher risk of mortality and death in older adults, but whether these factors cause a higher risk or just increase it has not been clear.
