Generally speaking, carbonated water is just as hydrating as non-carbonated water. Most carbonated water contains no additives (other than the carbon dioxide). However, some carbonated water contains additives. One of the more common additives to carbonated water is sodium chloride (table salt). Depending upon the amount of sodium in the carbonated water, and your body's sodium levels, the carbonated water could be more or less hydrating than the non-carbonated variety. The addition of the carbon dioxide has no effect on the hydrating power of the water.

Carbonated water is just as hydrating as non-carbonated water. The bubbles in carbonated water are simply dissolved carbon dioxide gas and do not affect its ability to hydrate the body. However, some people may feel bloated or experience gas after consuming carbonated water.
