At some point, humanity discovered that water was essential to its well-being and that access to clean water was an important block in developing a community. The human body is approximately 60/65 percent water, and as such, its daily intake as a fluid or present in water-rich foods is corporeally necessary for good health. Nothing is quite as a refreshing as an ice-cold glass of water on a hot day after exercising or spending energies in similar activities.
Well, until recently, anyway.
Because for as much as water was perfectly OK, there came a point when humans (read: marketing and ad agencies) decided that water was a tasteless and boring liquid that could cause a complete shutdown of your brain due to its extreme inanity. And that was the rise of the "flavored waters" and hydrolyzing frenzy brought to a satirized light in the cheeky Mike Judge film Idiocracy.
Here are seven new waters looking to revitalize your body with their nutritious and, quite frankly, befuddling taste approaches.
HyDrive Energy Water
This energy water is vaguely reminiscent in shape and colors to others already in the market, but it "combines the light, refreshing tastes of vitamin-enhanced water with the boost of an energy drink." Boasting a paltry 30 calories per bottle and lower sugar content than competitors, HyDrive has added vitamins and nutrients in an assault of revitalization for your body. There are eight flavors, with classics kiwi strawberry, black cherry, blue raspberry, grape, citrus burst, and new combinations like mango peach, triple berry, and honey lemonade.
Vertical Maple Water
America's maple trees are now working in double-time to bring you delicious maple syrup and apparently a much-needed version of maple-flavored water. This company, with its clever name, taps maple trees for a "naturally filtered and enhanced" water "high in antioxidants and manganese to support vitamin absorption." If you're looking for something sweet, this has got to be it. Now you can drink your breakfast/dessert and feel good about it because, well, the manganese is doing all the work for you.
