How many times have you gone for a run or achieved a great workout and decided to hydrate with a 10 calorie Vitaminwater when you were finished???
10 calories doesn’t sound so bad right?
This issue has been taken to court and Federal judge John Gleeson rules this to be a misleading drink that is in violation of FDA regulationsÂ . Vitaminwater will not keep you healthy or enhance your workout, since it’s pretty much very sugary water.
“..Vitaminwater is really just a sugary snack food; non-carbonated fruit coke disguised as a sports drink.” Â source: consumerist.comÂ http://consumerist.com/2010/07/vitaminwater-isnt-healthy-rules-federal-judge.html
If you check out glaceauglobal.com, Vitaminwaters’ website, you will find no nutritional information on this healthy drink said to be full of vitamins and minerals. If you look at the actual ingredients listed on a Vitaminwater bottle you will find no source of real fruit juice justÂ artificialÂ ingredients.
So you won’t enhance your focusing skills after drinking this pretty pink drink, but it’s probably better than choosing a soda. I’ll just stick to water 🙂
