(CNN) -- A recent study shows sparkling water is just as hydrating as non-carbonated water.

According to that study, carbonation in beverages has little impact on total hydration.

Experts say the only difference between the two beverages is that carbonated water may run through your body faster, but carbonation can affect how much water is consumed.

Some people say bubbles or flavor encourage them to drink more water.

Other people say they can get full and bloated faster.

Overall, experts say flat water is best during physical activity to avoid bloating.

Research also shows lightly sweetened drinks or ones with electrolytes (ex. sports drinks) can help with water retention in the body.
