Carbonated water bad for your bones?

Recently, I have had 2 clients mention that drinking carbonated water is bad for your bones. 

I never heard this. I heard that soda is bad for your bones and teeth but not plain carbonated water. 

I enjoy my sparkling water and would hate to give it up. In fact, we have a Sodastream that turns plain tap water into carbonated water in an instant. 

I had to investigate. Thank goodness, I can keep drinking bubbly water!

According to the various articles I have read, carbonation in water does not damage the bones or the teeth. 

A study was done on sparkling water vs. still water. One group of women drank one liter of still water each day. Another group drank a liter of carbonated water each day. There was no difference between the groups in the bone markers after 8 weeks. 

In fact, carbonated mineral waters can contain calcium which good for the bones! 

Colas, however, seem to be a huge issue due to their Phosphoric acid content which can interfere with calcium absorption.

Here is a link to an interesting article by licensed nutritionist Monica Reinagel if you would like to read more.
