In case you haven’t noticed, enhanced water beverages are all the rage these days, as evidenced by their swollen selection in your corner market’s cool case. These hydration options offer a wide variety of beneficial supplements, but some come with unacceptable caloric or carb-loaded trade-offs. From that standpoint, I was glad to try out the new offering of actiVwater, which balances these factors better than most.

actiVwater packs in a variety of vitamins, electrolytes, and utilizes Ertyritol as a sweetener, offering more benefits with fewer calories than many competing products. A little label comparison shows that actiVwater’s touted 25 calories per serving size certainly beats out many of the other “healthy waters” out there. This could be a great option if you need a little more taste or punch out of your hydration routine.

If you choose to try out actiVwater, you won’t lack for choices, as it’s offered in 8 different flavors and packaged in a griptastic 19oz bottle. My suggestion: try the Black Berry for the taste and its Glucosamine content; yes, I’m getting old and my joints are a’ hurtin’.
