Effects of carbonated water on functional dyspepsia and constipation.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12352219

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:
The effects of carbonated beverages on the gastrointestinal tract have been poorly investigated. Therefore, this study aims to assess the effect of carbonated water intake in patients with functional dyspepsia and constipation.

METHODS:
Twenty-one patients with dyspepsia and secondary constipation were randomized into two groups in a double-blind fashion. One group (10 subjects) drank carbonated water and the other (11 subjects) tap water for almost 15 days. Patients were evaluated for dyspepsia and constipation scores, and underwent a satiety test by a liquid meal, radionuclide gastric emptying, sonographic gallbladder emptying and colonic transit time, using radio-opaque markers.

RESULTS:
The dyspepsia score was significantly reduced with carbonated water (before = 7.9 +/- 2.8 after = 5.4 +/- 1.7; 0.05) and remained unmodified after tap water (9.7 +/- 5.3 9.9 +/- 4.0). The constipation score also decreased significantly ( 0.05) after carbonated water (16.0 +/- 3.9 12.1 +/- 4.4; 0.05) and was not significantly different with tap water (14.7 +/- 5.1 13.7 +/- 4.7). Satiety was significantly reduced with carbonated water (before = 447 +/- 146 kcal after = 590 +/- 245; 0.01). Gallbladder emptying (delta percent contraction) was significantly improved only with carbonated water (39.9 +/- 16.1% 53.6 +/- 16.7%; 0.01).

CONCLUSION:
In patients complaining of functional dyspepsia and constipation, carbonated water decreases satiety and improves dyspepsia, constipation and gallbladder emptying.

Re: Effects of carbonated water on...dyspepsia and constipat

Because of the CO2................. and it makes them fart more. :P
But was it carbonated tap water, or filtered? Maybe less toxins too, tap water is pretty full of crap.
I need to post pics of what is left behind in my distillers boiling chamber, you will fall off your set. In only 3 months, its about 300g-500g or more of solids!
