Smart to Drink smartwater?

Water to make you smarter? Could it be that Jennifer Aniston is auditioning for a new brainy role? Not quite.

Glacéau's (the folks who bring us VitaminWater and FruitWater) smartwater is vapor distilled electrolyte enhanced water or quite simply: Water with electrolytes. This means it feels like you are drinking regular bottled water but you're actually getting the added benefit of electrolytes (helps prevent dehydration), without getting the added intense flavors and calories of other sports drinks like Gatorade.

The only time I would not recommend this water is while running (unless you pour it into a different bottle) because the clean, smooth bottles are hard to get a good grip on (especially if your hands sweat excessively). However, it's great for the gym or during any other activity where you won't be clutching your water the entire time. I'd even recommend it if you had a big night out, and you're feeling a bit hung over. Buy it from Dr. Soda Company online for $1.29-$2.19 (depending on size).

Fit's Tip: Just so you know, it's really not necessary to replace lost electrolytes during normal exercise (say 30 mins of cardio) since it is unlikely that you may experience a significant depletion in those that your body normally stores, but it definitely won't hurt to ensure hydration. If you're training for a race of some sort (or just exercising a lot) then it's a great idea to consider drinks, like smartwater, with electrolytes.

I love this water and because of a arm injury I had to come up with a way to not constantly drop the bottle... so I put a couple rubberbands on the bottle.

The best water I have ever had was water by Rainsoft. It is a system put in the house and is RO (reverse osmosis) treated. I never thought water was that big of a deal until I tasted the difference of this water. Plus, I put it in a thermos and the bottles don't fill the landfills. Water, BTW, is unregulated. You can bottle and sell any water within the state, but once it crosses state lines, it falls under federal regulations. That is why certain brands are indigenous to the state they come from.

i got hooked on this water after a week of the stomach bug... i could not drink any of that other sugar-loaded crap but was concerned about dehydration- so concerned that i even tried pedialyte, which is absolutely disgusting! bleck!

I thought Gatorade was only designed for professional athletes, and only to be used when a person was sweating, and working out THAT hard. Other than that, I thought it was supposed to be bad for you because it has all this sodium to help retain water or something. Is this really ok to be drinking?

I'm addicted to SmartWater! It just tastes better and it makes me feel like I'm doing something good for my body. I think it's the best tasting water out there :) Plus it used to be hard to find and only available at stores like Whole Foods, but now you can find it at any run of the mill grocery store.
