Ok, i know that we are suppose to have our mineral/seltzer water at room temperature, i think mainly for digestive purposes.

Does anyone know if i get the same benefits, besides digestive if i have it cold. I just can't do the room temperature thing. That's why i have gone off and on the water, because i just don't like it at room temperature.

Thanks!
Mickey

I've never thought about it, personally. But then again, I live in the Pacific Northwest, where we aren't usually in a burning hot condition.

If you live somewhere with oven-like conditions I, personally, wouldn't fault you for wanting your water cold.  That's my bias, 'cause I'm a polar bear... or "ice bear" as Isa would call me.

Thanks Ron-O-Don!

I love your Polar Bear picture!.  I actually love Polar Bears and collect Polar Bear anything.  Though my collection is quite small, it's hard to find things in Polar Bear.  Usually around Christmas i find more things, like Christmas ornaments etc....

If you can't drink mineral water room temperature, try this: refrigerate it so it's chilled. Pour out the amount you want, let it sit for a minute or two, then drink it. It will be cool but not cold, and not room temperature.

I have found that I can no longer drink chilled liquids, having gotten accustomed to room temp drinks. Even in very hot weather. It did take some time to get used to it though, perhaps you might want to move towards it gradually.

I'm not aware of a scientific study that says that. However, many people feel it is healthier to avoid swallowing cold items. Nothing says they can't be warmed in the mouth before swallowing.

I have been a "fan" of room temperature liquids (especially water) for almost 12 years now.  I only drink filtered chlorine free water though.  Tap water at room temp is positively vile, and only slightly better chilled (perhaps the chlorine "escapes" somehow).  I live in the desert southwest and usually keep the inside temp around 78 - 82, so it's not an issue that room temp is "cold" by any means.  I sometimes get mild stomach cramps when I try to drink ice cold liquids and as a classical singer also dislike the shock cold liquids on my vocal folds.  It DOES take getting used to, but about 75% of my voice students manage to drink room temp liquids after about 2 weeks of trying. You'll also find that you will stay more hydrated since most people drink MORE of a room temp liquid than a cold one.  I wouldn't know about seltzer since it's randomly an avoid for type B's  

I will admit to allowing myself an occasional soda (usually Hansen's.. sweetened with terrible corn syrup.. but SO tasty!) which may or may not be lightly cooled by a brief stint in the fridge if it's a particularly hot day.  But the large size Brita pitcher stays on the counter in the kitchen and gets refilled at least twice a day.

Bright Blessings,
Stephen

I do not drink chilled or cold drinks......my organism feels pleased at my decision.

I like my water room temp........cold or chilled feels like I m shocking my digestion unnecessarily.

individuality is bliss!!

Ayurveda also mentions this, if I m not mistaken.

From what i read somewhere is that Mineral/Seltzer water should be drunk at room temperature, i believe it has something to do with helping in digestion.

I'm not talking about drinking everything at room temperature. I love ice cold drinks, that's probably why i have such a hard time drinking it at room temperature. If the suggestion is only for better digestion, then i guess i'll drink it cold and i'll probably be drinking more of it because of that.

Thanks Again Everyone,

Mickey

Check out Blue Sky, at least some of their sodas are non-HFCS sweetened.
