It’s true that a tall glass of water is one of the best known ways to stay hydrated but there are plenty of alternative options out there to keep it fresh and fun. If you haven’t noticed, trendy water (a.k.a. wellness water) is booming and it’s far from boring. Here are 6 options to get your taste buds’ psyched.
WTRMLN WTR: This bev has 6x the electrolytes as your fave sports drink and has the same electrolytes as coconut water. It contains L-Citrulline for your workouts, which helps to minimize lactic acid buildup–your muscles will thank ya! It also has no added sugar and is packed with antioxidants like Vitamin C and lycopene, helps prevent cancer.
BLK: Don’t let the dark color scare you, this alkaline mineral water is pretty tasty and gets its color from being infused with naturally black fulvic trace minerals. Fulvic trace minerals are thought to contain an abundance of natural plant sourced nutrients including natural electorlytes, amino acids, 77 trace minerals and antioxidants.
ALO–aloe vera drink: Not only is ALO non-GMO, gluten-free and fat-free but they offer 20 flavor blends to help you find a sip that suits your mood. This refreshment gives back to your body with natural vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It also help promote healthy skin, healthy digestion, reduces inflammation and supports your joints and muscles.
Banana Water: Bananas are a super-food that are full of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes. Most importantly, this beverage is packed with potassium (as much as two bananas), which helps fuel your body and keep you hydrated. It is made with natural ingredients, has no added sugar, is gluten-free and fat free and only has 70 calories per bottle.
Harmless Harvest–coconut water: This (sometimes pink) beverage is the closest you’ll get to drinking straight out of a coconut. Some say that the ingredients in coconut water are way more effective for hydrating than several sports and energy drinks on the market today. Coconut water also contains five essential electrolytes–calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and sodium. It is also fat-free + low in calories and contains protein + fiber.
Karma: This wellness water has 110% (or more) of the recommended daily allowance of seven essential vitamins: A, B3-Niacin, B5, B6, B12, D and E. It also includes a variety of superfruits, antioxidants and nutraceuticals. My favorite drink of choice is the Raspberry Guava Jackfruit. The container also has a patented, one-of-a-kind cap called the KarmaCap to promise maximum potency and peak freshness.
