Is flavored water as good for you as plain water?


Answer by  Erynn (1651)

Flavored water's health benefits depend on what it's flavored with - it will have the same benefits as ordinary water for the most part, but will have its own drawbacks. Frequently it will be more acidic than water or contain sugars that will mess with your metabolism something chronic. But, it's better than not drinking enough water.

This depends on which flavored water is being used. Read the ingredients on any flavored water. If the flavored water has artificial ingredients, caffeine or sugar, it is not as good for you. On the other hand, also look for vitamins and minerals on the labels. Flavored waters can offer unique benefits, though most believe plain water is the healthiest.

Not if you buy it bottled. Flavored water contains corn syrups, MSG, chemicals, and fake sugars. Homemade flavored water is healthy, though. Soak a peeled cucumber in a pitcher of water overnight for a refreshing, healthy, flavorful water. Then experiment with different fruits, such as lemons, limes, peaches, or strawberries.

The thing about flavored water is that unlike plain water (that has no calories), flavored water has a few calories because some add sugar and other things.

I'd say that it depends on what is used to flavor it. Any use of chemicals such as saccarine and artifical flavoring won't be as healthy as a sliced lemon.

More often than not, flavored waters have additives and sodium. This means that it is actually not as good for you as water is. Be sure to check the nutritional facts on the bottle of your flavored water.
