healthy or hoax? I have a friend that swears they are hydrating and help support your body with vitamins, hence the label and her doctor recommendation. Nutritionist say otherwise, that there is nothing hydrating nor enough vitamin content to be helpful. What do you think? Your experience, has it helped you get over a cold? Do you feel like you just drank a sports drink or more like drinking water?

 I dislike sports drinks because to me they taste salty and I've never tried Vitamin Water because I think it's a load of crap.  lol  Water is best in my opinion.

Well they ARE hydrating by the simple fact that you're putting liquid into your body when you consume them.

Now are they magical? No. But if it's drink them or you drink nothing (or something that's a diuretic like tea) yeah they are "good" for you. Some people don't like plain water (as weird as that is to me). So if making it flavored and putting it in a fancy bottle makes people drink water, good on ya! It's like Chocolate milk, kids need the calcium, if adding a little chocolate makes that happen, the benefits (calcium, vitamin D) outweigh the bad (sugar from Chocolate). 

Also "Nutritionist" is a meaningless term, anyone that's ever taken a nutrition class (like in High School or at WIC) is technically a nutrionist. It's like saying "All Natural" means absolutely nothing, it's a buzz word.

Good to know about the nutritionist buzz word. I can't remember where exactly, but it was basically lumping the vitamin waters with sport drinks like gatoraide. Which they said could actually be deydrating if you're not an athlete or something to that extent.

It's better to drink water, but if you don't like water to the point that you won't drink it "plain" it's certainly better to drink those than nothing.  I drink them occasionally, it's like any other thing, moderation is the key.
