Vitamin water is a beverage that consists of water with added water-soluble vitamins. Most producers offer different vitamin water flavors sweetened with sugar or other natural and artificial sweeteners.
First introduced in the U.S. more than a decade ago, vitamin water sales continue to grow as consumers recognize the importance of vitamins in their diet and feel that the vitamin water benefits outweigh the added calories.
Vitamin Water and Electrolytes
Electrolytes are minerals like sodium, potassium, and magnesium that exist in your blood as acids, bases, and salts. The function of electrolytes is to help your body:
- Move nutrients into cells
- Move waste out of cells
- Enable your muscles (including your heart) and nerves to function properly
- Balance your pH level
- Balance your water level
So, they are essential to your health. In short, the purpose of electrolytes in vitamin water and other electrolyte drinks is to help your body “work” the way it should. Also, for people who drink vitamin water, energy is a significant benefit.
Is It a Good Idea To Be Drinking Vitamin Water?
Vitamin water provides vitamins that your body needs. Eldorado Vitamin Spring Water, which is USDA Certified Organic, contains vitamin C and several B vitamins—B3, B5, B6, and B12. The spring water we make it with is also a great source of natural electrolytes.
Eldorado Vitamin Spring Water is sweetened but with organic cane sugar rather than the fructose corn syrups that many other products use. And, at 11 to16 grams of sugar, depending on the flavor, our vitamin waters have around half (or less) of the sugar of many other products. Those products are relatively high in sugar at over 30 grams.
Of course, as with any source of calories, you should consume vitamin water in moderation as part of a healthy hydration strategy. But when you do, Eldorado Vitamin Spring Water can help replenish electrolytes like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. And if you have an electrolyte imbalance, it can help your body return to its optimal electrolyte levels.
There are sugar-free vitamin waters on the market. However, the artificial sweeteners they contain have health risks of their own.
Vitamin Water: An Excellent Alternative to Soda
When you crave a mildly sweet, thirst-quenching beverage, our organic vitamin spring water is an excellent alternative to sugary sodas. Not only does it have much less sugar (two-thirds less, in some cases) and fewer calories, but it also has natural electrolytes that your body needs.
Plus, a drink’s flavor profile depends largely on the beverage’s foundation. In the case of Eldorado Vitamin Spring Water, we add the vitamins and organic cane sugar to artesian spring water that has won many awards for its taste, both in the U.S. and worldwide.
What you end up with is a winning combination of flavor and vitamins that checks the boxes on both “good” and “good for you”! Whether you choose Natural Hibiscus Lime, Natural Sicilian Orange, Natural Strawberry Blueberry, Organic Dragonfruit, or Natural Peach Mango, our vitamin-charged water is a taste sensation. You’ll look forward to sipping it to keep yourself adequately hydrated and fully refreshed.
