Water + vitamins + minerals = vitamin water. Sounds good, right? I mean, what can be better than pure water enhanced with minerals and vitamins? Vitamin Water has to be good. There is just one thing; you can easily get the vitamins and minerals from your diet. Oh, and water is also available from your water faucet. So let’s revisit the formula now.
Vitamin Water – vitamins – minerals – water = sugar. That’s right; all we are left with is sugar. How much sugar? One bottle contains 2.5 servings, which translates to 13 g sugar per serving for the majority of flavors or 32.5 grams of sugar if you drink the whole bottle.
So is vitamin water good for you? If your diet is low in sugar, which is highly unlikely, eat some fruit. If, on the other hand, your diet is full of sugar, as most Western diets tend to be, you obviously do not need even more sugar, even if it comes with vitamins and minerals.
