The sugar content of Vitaminwater makes it more soda than water and, therefore, is unhealthy if consumed frequently. There is no sodium in Vitamin Water Zero.
Moreover, it does not contain enough calcium, magnesium, or potassium to qualify as an electrolyte-restoring beverage.
Contrary to popular belief, vitamin water has fewer electrolytes than water. It is not intended to replace the everyday vitamin supplements you take.
But don’t take my word; know from Dezi Abeyta, R.D.N., a Men’s Health expert who states that:
Vitamin water advertises itself as a delicious beverage packed with antioxidants. But don’t let it deceive you — Abeyta insists that whole foods are always the finest.
He advises getting some fruit and sprinkling salt on it as a favor.

Let’s discuss Powerade and Gatorade, the Vitaminwater alternatives that claim to be “health drinks,” too.
Here’s what you need to know about them:
Gatorade is an electrolyte drink containing small amounts of vital vitamins and minerals like sodium and potassium. There are available in different flavors; because you might have guessed it already, the main USP of these drinks is their taste rather than nutritional value.
Similar to Gatorade, excessive consumption of Powerade, which has a high sodium content, can have negative health effects like
- High Blood pressure
- Kidney damage
- Heart disease and heart attacks.
In short, it does more harm than you can imagine. Excess consumption can make you lose all of your energy, and you risk getting depressed and having a compromised immunity.
Here’s the ultimate truth:
Your electrolytes can be balanced using various natural methods like consuming an electrolyte-rich diet heavy in spinach, Kale, avocados, and broccoli. These aid in hydration and assist the body in generating energy.
