Nutrition Tip October 16 2010

When is Water more than Water?

In reality, not very often. Bottled waters are not regulated and could be filled right out of someone else’s tap. And what about “enhanced water” with promises of energy, vitamins, minerals, and health benefits? There is no evidence that the amounts and types of nutrients added to these water products provide any benefit to our bodies. These too are a waste of money, and you are much better off eating real foods with calories, healthy carbs, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and mineral, and drinking plain ice-cold water. If you like them, they probably won’t hurt you, but I’d spend my $1.00 elsewhere.
