This Drink Makes You Fat?
As we age, maintaining a healthy weight can become a real challenge.
So you dodge sugary foods, starchy carbs and the couch.
But according to U.K. researchers, there’s one more thing you should be avoiding if you want to stay slim.
And believe it or not — it’s sugar-free.
I’m talking about fizzy or carbonated water. And it’s become a wildly popular diet drink in recent years because it contains no sugar or calories.
But like we’ve seen a million times before — just because something is sugar-free doesn’t mean it’s good for you.
And fizzy water is no different.
In the recent study, scientists from Aston University in Birmingham, England, had healthy volunteers fast for 10 hours and then given a control meal to ensure they were equally full.
An hour later, the volunteers drank either fizzy or flat water and had their appetite hormones measured.
As it turns out, fizzy water can significantly up your levels of ghrelin — a hormone that can make you overeat.
And that’s exactly what happened — the participants who drank fizzy water also ate 120 more calories than those in the flat group.
This means fizzy water can do a double-whammy to your metabolism and weight loss goals!
Experts aren’t exactly sure why fizzy water has such negative effects on your appetite. But they believe that carbon dioxide — the gas that makes the tiny bubbles— encourages your stomach to release higher levels of ghrelin.
Fortunately, all you have to do is skip the sparkling water to stop this from happening.
Instead, reach for a tall, refreshing glass of hydrogen water, like the kind that comes from your Turapür product, to help quench your thirst.
Turapür filters produce alkaline water and also add vital minerals like calcium and potassium back into your water, which may also help boost your health!
Plus, the Turapür filters contain magnesium and tourmaline, which produce molecular hydrogen and reduce the oxidation potential in the water — making it a powerful antioxidant. Research suggests antioxidants can help give you energy, generate radiant skin and even help keep your joints healthy.
