Vitamin Water

Sports Drinks like Gatorade and Powerade contain electrolytes. The problem is, they also contain sugar. That’s how they give you an energy boost. So you don’t want to drink a lot of these. There are fairly new vitamin water products on the market that also claim to restore your electrolytes. Read the labels and watch out for high sugar or fructose content - like these:

 A bottle of Propel contains 4 grams of sugar. The new Snapple vitamin water has 14 grams of sugar per serving! A bottle is supposed to be 2 servings. Did you realize that? Let’s put that in perspective –

A regular serving of Regular Whipped cream has less than 1 gram of sugar.

A teaspoon of regular sugar is 4 grams of sugar.

A serving (3) of European Belgian Chocolate Cookies has 10 grams of sugar

A serving of Chocolate Raspberry Decadence Warm Delights has 17 grams of sugar.

Do we really have to have sugar in our water too?

A bottle of Vitamin Water has more sugar than cookies and cake.

And remember that lab added vitamins additives are not the same as getting the vitamin itself – so take all that bunk with a grain of salt!

Just eat well, and take your vitamins with a glass of orange juice. Yeah, old fashioned, but it works.
