So many people these days are struggling with 9-5 jobs, housework and children. Life is busy with getting up early in the morning, making breakfast for the family, dropping the kids at school and going to work. Arranging for someone to collect the kids from school, such as parents etc. and then picking them up after we finish work. Then we have to help with homework, cook the tea and then baths and bedtime stories. It really is never ending, especially for those of us who struggle alone as single parents.

The benefits of drinking water are clearly shown in the article cited above. Many people walk around in a state of dehydration, suffering from the ill effects associated with the lack of adequate hydration. Water, it seems, has been neglected and unpopular since the beginning of the soda invasion. Most people do not even consider choosing water as a beverage, opting instead for a Pepsi or Coke. Just look at any restaurant menu to confirm this idea. There will be twenty different kinds of carbonated soda and no mention of water choices other than the often frowned upon request for a glass of tap water with lemon instead of one of the sugary, gas filled sodas.
The water revolution has arrived, however. In the past few years, there has been an increased amount of new water beverages on the market, making it easier for choosy water drinkers to find a water beverage which appeals to their own tastes. Not only are some of the waters spring fed and crystal clear, but some are actually pumped full of a healthy dose of vitamins.
A Water for Every Taste
Tap water cannot compare to the variety of water beverages available to choose from. Sports enthusiasts may increase their stamina and boost their energy with water designed for athletes. Purists will enjoy the fancy-named water choices like Evian and Fiji Water. There is even special water designed for babies to drink called Nursery Water. Propel offers water choices with hints of flavors like citrus or berry. This water beverage uses an artificial sweetener to keep the calories down.
Glaceau Vitamin Water is just like what the name says – water with vitamins added to it. But Glaceau is anything but ordinary. To stand out from other water ‘beverages’ out there, apart from adding vitamins, there are brightly colored labels and creative names like Revive, Power C, Energy, Defense … and a humorous story to go along with each product. For example:- ‘stress b/lemon-lime’: “For the temporary relief of stress associated with personal finances, high school reunions, computer viruses, and telemarketers calling during dinner. Continuous usage may lead to the extinction of reclining chairs, therapists and radio stations beginning with the name “light” or “easy.”
But what about the taste! Well, it’s water, so you know what to expect except … I tried the Revive Fruit Punch. The ingredients label says that they added a little sugar or crystalline fructose, natural flavors and a little vegetable juice for color. So this does not exactly taste like water, but more like – a beverage that I thought was going to be sweeter, but it wasn’t, and that left my mouth disappointed. I think it’s the same reason I don’t like Gatorade (well that and the fact that I am NOT a Florida Gators fan! but I digress…) I will let people know that I am in the minority with my opinion though. I like water to taste like water, and if something has the name ‘water’ in it, then I also expect that will taste like water, and I don’t like it if it doesn’t.
On the other hand, there are at least 50% of many vitamins in these drinks. Another note on labeling – it turns out that there are 50 calories per serving of this ‘revive vitamin water.’ There are 2.5 servings in a bottle, leaving you with 125 calories from this ‘vitamin water.’ And you pay $1.99 for the pleasure. I think 50CENTS (the rapper) knew what he was doing when he invested in this company! I think I’ll stick to drinking good ole’ no calorie, filtered ‘TAP water.’
Before Gatorade there was Kool-aid; the next generation of sports drink is Smart Water, and sister product Vitamin Water. Made by a US bottler called “Glaceau, “Smart Water begins as an artesian spring in Northern Connecticut. After the water is distilled,a balance of Magnesium, Potassium, and Calcium is introduced, adding electrolytes.

Smart Water is a product for anyone who wants to look and drink their best during tennis, golf,workouts at the gym,or in the school lunch room. Smart Water is just that: smart!

Along with San Pellegrino (from Italy) and Perrier, Evian is the most visible luxury water in the world. A flagship product of prestigtious Groupe Danone, Evian’s source in Haute Savoie was discovered in 1789 by the Marquis de Lessert. Nitrates are acceptable at 3.8 milligrams per liter; other than that, there really is nothing exceptional in its chemistry besides the strong level of Silica, and low Sodium content. With its neutral 7.2 pH, Evian rolls along, providing a signature taste enjoyed by many.
