Mineral Water

From underground springs, mineral water contains naturally dissolved mineral salts such as iron, calcium and magnesium. Plus, the natural sulfates can help to promote digestion.

Electrolyte Water

Full of sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphate and magnesium, electrolyte water helps replenish your body’s minerals after an energizing workout.

Alkaline Water

Rich in alkalizing minerals like calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium and bicarbonate, drinking alkaline water may help metabolize nutrients and expel toxins more efficiently.

Coconut Water

Low-calorie, low-carbohydrate and 99% fat-free, coconut water is nature’s quick energy drink—full of electrolytes, and more potassium than a banana.

Sparkling Water

Swap out your soda with sparkling water! This hydrating alternative contains low-to-no sugar or calories, with all the refreshing bubbles.

Fruits and Veggies

Watermelon, strawberry, cucumber, kiwi, citrus and raspberries all have high water content (as do many other fruits and veggies)—try adding these to your water for a nutrient and flavor boost! And, you can freeze them to use in place of ice cubes as well.
