Vitamin Water?

Reply Sun 20 May, 2007 05:52 pm
Anyone drink it? I used to drink it every once in awhile, but a friend told me it's all sugar, and not that good for you- does anyone have anymore info on it's nutritional value?

While marketed as an enhanced, health-promoting water, nutrition experts question whether vitaminwater beverages are indeed healthful (Day 2002, Somers 2006). Depending on the variety, each 20 fl. oz. bottle contains 100 to 125 calories and from 20 to 32.5 grams of sugar[1], while pure water contains no sugar or calories. On the other hand, a 20 fl. oz. bottle of Coca-Cola contains 240 calories and 68 grams of sugar and contains no vitamins of any kind[2].



Seems to me that you would be better off drinking plain water, and taking whatever vitamins that you think that you need.

Thanks Phoenix- I think you're right- I bet those calories add up quick. I guess I'll just have to stick to getting my vitamins the old fashioned way Smile
