The Best Vitamin Waters for Springtime Sipping

Vitamin water has been around for years, and although it’s not technically a soda, it’s often confused with one because it typically comes in brightly colored cans and contains artificial sweeteners like aspartame. Because of its sugary taste, vitamin water has also been criticized as being unhealthy, but the truth is there are plenty of non-artificial vitamin waters that are full of nutrition and better than regular soda! Check out this guide to help you find the vitamin water best flavors possible.

Pomegranate Mango
The burst of flavor from pomegranate and mango is what you need to combat that first sign of winter-weather gloom. If we’re being honest, though, it’s a great pick-me-up anytime. On a rainy day or as you warm up after your morning run, pomegranate with mango will get your body feeling energized in no time. In addition to its amazing taste, pomegranate also helps to keep your heart healthy and may lower your risk of high blood pressure. Meanwhile, mangoes have anti-inflammatory properties and fight against cancerous tumors in lab studies—not too shabby!

Grapefruit Kiwi
The key to getting hydrated is drinking something that tastes good. And vitamin water flavored with grapefruit and kiwi certainly falls into that category. This flavor combines two superfoods: vitamin C-rich citrus fruit and vitamin E-rich kiwi. Each serves a distinct health benefit. Grapefruit, which helps protect against cancer, heart disease, stroke and memory loss, also contains phytonutrients known as flavonoids that fight cell damage in general.

Orange Pineapple
A bright and citrusy orange flavor with a bit of a tart finish, Orange Pineapple delivers on its promise to be sweet but not cloying. It’s got just enough of a kick that I wouldn’t call it a one-drink quencher, but after two or three glasses you might find yourself feeling refreshed and invigorated. Not only is it fruity, it also packs in an impressive amount of vitamins C and E along with folate, fiber, magnesium and potassium. This beverage has 140 calories per serving, so try to stick to one if you want it as part of your daily vitamin intake.

Lemon Blueberry
If you’re anything like me, you need a dose of Vitamin C in your diet. While I love my orange juice, sometimes you want something a little more refreshing. That’s where vitamin waters come in: they provide a healthy dose of vitamins without all that sugar. My favorite? The fruit-flavored Lancers water by Glacéau/Dasani (yes, that Dasani). Their lemon blueberry variety is fantastic—all natural and with just 10 calories per serving. It has plenty of Vitamin C and even includes B Vitamins! The sweet taste also makes it easy to drink; I use it as a mixer for gin or vodka, so it actually increases my calorie count on any given night!

Pomegranate Blueberry
This tart, berry-flavored sparkling water is like a light, refreshing sorbet. For a healthier alternative to most sugary sodas and drinks, pick up a bottle of Pomegranate Blueberry. Not only does it taste great on its own, but you can also use it to flavor other drinks or even add some of your own fruit for extra flavor. Most grocery stores carry bottled versions of vitamin waters; if not, check out your local organic grocery store or Whole Foods market.
