To Ensure Freshness, Activate Water Stores Vitamins in the Lid of the Bottle

The Secret's Hidden in the Lid

Although bottled water isn't great for the environment, it seems like there's a new kind out each week. We've had holy water, vitamin water, mint water, flavored water and even fiber water. While it seems like you couldn't add another kind to the mix, Los Angeles based Activate is doing just that.

The new marketing gimmick trick is that the vitamins and herbs in their vitamin and herb-infused water are stored in a chamber inside the cap. When you twist the cap clockwise, the chamber is cut and the powder drops into the water below. The founders of the company came up with the idea because they had a hard time remembering to take their daily vitamins. Storing the ingredients in the cap will keep them fresh until they're released.

If you're interested to see how Activate tastes, the purified water is currently available in four flavors — Fruit Punch (Vitamin), Orange (Immunity), Berry (Antioxidant), and Lemon-Lime (Energy) — and claims to have no syrupy taste. There's no sugar — although it is lightly sweetened with Splenda — and it does contain caffeine.

So tell me, are you going to try Activate?

In such a situation, it is firstly necessary to draw some facts that would prove this statement. First of all it should be said that when people ask for advice they actually know several possible answers to their question. In other words, they already have several variants of possible advices they would be given because they know the subject on which they need to be advised, consequently, they plan their actions, they decide what they have to do and it is at this stage when the real necessity in advice appears. <a href="">buy persuasive essay</a>

I might try looks really neat. I love cool packaging tricks, so I'll give it a go. If it's gross, I won't buy it again though.

yeah..i'm totally swayed by cute or trendy labeling and bottles. i'm all for the GT Kombucha drinks and the POM pomegranate teas, and i can tell you i wouldn't have even picked either out in the first place if it weren't for their appearance. activate definitely has good marketing.

Splenda gives me migraines too! Its too bad it is becoming so popular in drinks lately. That said, this does not seem like a great product. Nice overall look, but too gimmick-y for me.

I, too, am a sucker for packaging. However, I'm not a big fan of Splenda or any sugar substitute, so the taste might not exactly be great. It sounds like a great idea so that I can get my daily fix of vitamins.

i might try it. i'm a sucker for the packaging and the way that things look. granted i typically choose the types that are 'normal' plain water - but every now and then i like to switch it up.
