Is Vitamin Water Good for You?

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.

    I totally agree with you. My sister is addicted to vitamin water and believes that it is healthy. If you add the sugar that is in one bottle, as you did, its obvious vitamin water is not that good for you! 32g is what is recommended per day!

    Just for a frame of reference regarding sugar content:
    1 12oz can of Dr Pepper
    is aprrox equal to
    1 20oz bottle of Vitamin Water

    I’m a vitamin water addict and I drink it everyday of the week. I’ve tried every flavor glaceau has made from Orange Orange to the newest flavor Spark and i’m extremely healthy, unlike the other obese people in this world who consume SODA which in fact has more sugar than this drink. To the people who don’t drink this drink I really don’t think you should be leaving these comments. Thank you.

    I like vitamin water but I don’t drink it to be healthy. It’s like sweet tea in a way. You drink it because you don’t want to drink water and you don’t want soft drinks. A spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down.
