Is Vitamin Water a Scam?



Is one of the latest trends in addictive health drinks simply an elaborate scam to get you hooked on more sugar?

If we're to believe a recent blog post over at healthandblueberries.com, absolutely!

Because it turns out that aside from Vitamins, this so\-called energy drink has unhealthy amounts of "Natural Flavors" which any doctor will tell you is code for sugar, sugar and more sugar (that's not a good thing in case you're wondering). Sugar acts like an H-bomb on your system, giving you a quick explosion of energy followed by plummeting disaster,as your pancreas and other glands do all they can to balance out the toxic stimulation to blood sugar.

So the next time you think Vitamin Water is healthy, why not try regular water. Or green drinks, homemade orangina or ginger ale to replenish vitamins and quench thirst.

Vitamin Water, aside from a couple of specific varieties, is not promoted as an "energy drink," and as someone who drinks it on a daily basis I have noticed no energy bursts or crashes aside from the aforementioned varieties...

To answer your question, yes! Anything that is not natural isn't exactly going to do any good for you. Most especially when it's label says another thing from what is real. And yes, I'd like a drink of water or natural organic juice instead.
