Water Enhancers That Aren’t Good

Before I get into today’s post originally this post was supposed to go up tomorrow. Today’s post was going to be The Keto “Diet” vs. The Vegan “Diet”.  I had it all done and ready to post and I don’t know what happened I can’t find it on my computer anywhere. So instead here is a post all about water flavors. Sorry, again I hope you enjoy today’s post.

Yes, you can buy little bottles of colorful liquid to squeeze in your water that says they add B vitamins and other vitamins and minerals, but let’s be clear, most of these flavor squeezers are just artificial chemical concoctions that don’t do anything to enhance the properties of water. (Even chocolate milk would be better.)

Here’s the rundown of the best and worst water enhancers (unfortunately there are very few that make the cut!):


Stur Liquid Water Enhancer

Again, this is not going to make your water healthier, but at least it doesn’t contain some of the more egregious chemicals found in most other drink squeezers. That is if you don’t mind Stevia extract, which I’m still on the fence about.


Skinnygirl Water Enhancer

While there are still more preservatives in here that we would like, at least it doesn’t contain antifreeze and “weighting” agents. It has vegetable juice for color and Stevia Extract and cane sugar for sweetness.


Crystal Light Liquid

With claims like “zero calories” and “no sugar” you’d think this was a harmless drink mix. But when you look at the ingredient list you see 12 ingredients, including the artificial sweetener Sucralose and sucrose acetate isobutyrate, a thickening or “weighting” agent also found in printing inks.


MiO Liquid Water Enhancer

The second ingredient in these little bottles is propylene glycol, a preservative, thickening agent, and stabilizer, also used as antifreeze to de-ice airplanes, as a plasticizer to make polyester resins, and found in electronic cigarettes.


Dasani Drops

Nestled in this 13-ingredient list are the artificial sweetener Sucralose, and ink thickener sucrose acetate isobutyrate.


Propel Zero Sport

This zippy sounding sports drink mix is nothing more than citric acid, salt, and antifreeze (propylene glycol)—mixed with a little artificial coloring and a splash of B vitamins.

Final Thoughts

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Again what I had originally planned to post was The Keto Diet vs. The Vegan Diet and I couldn’t find the file on my computer anywhere.

Thank You for the positive review of my blog. I do love the holiday and I myself isn’t a big pumpkin person but I like to put posts out there for anyone who is.
