Best Flavored Water Brands – Natural, Artificial and Supplemented


If you’re looking for a refreshing drink to quench your thirst but you’re not a big fan of plain water, flavored water is the way to go. It keeps you hydrated and is great for when you want something tasty to drink.

After all, water is essential to us. It helps maintain the balance of our bodily fluids, regulate body temperature, lubricates joints and organs, and is a necessary component in most of our metabolic processes, among its many other purposes.

Here are the things you need to know about the best types and brands of flavored water.

Different Types of Flavored Water

Here are some of the different types of flavored water you can choose from.

Naturally-flavored

Naturally-flavored water has no added sugars or artificial sweeteners, making it a healthier option. It’s a good choice for those who want to drink more water but don’t like how bland regular water is, or for those who want to cut back on sodas but can’t give up on flavored drinks entirely.

Where does it get its taste and flavor then? According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), natural flavor is

“the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

Food and Drug Administration

Artificially Sweetened

Other types of flavored water contain artificial sweeteners, they’re not as healthy as naturally flavored water.

Some people prefer the taste of artificially sweetened beverages over those made with natural ingredients, but though they might taste better, they’re often not as good for your health.

Supplemented Flavored Water

Some brands of flavored water contain “alternative” or “trendy” additives like CBD oil, collagen, and other vitamins or supplements.

While it’s true that these types of drinks can be beneficial to people who need them (such as those who are trying to lose weight), they should still only be consumed in moderation because they can still contain a high amount of sugar and calories.

It’s important to know that there is no scientific evidence yet on how these additives affect the body when they’re mixed with water, so while supplemented flavored water isn’t necessarily bad for you, having too much of it may pose a health risk.

Flavored Still Water

Still water is ‘regular’ non-carbonated water. Flavored still water can be naturally or artificially flavored.

Flavored Sparkling Water

Sparkling water is carbonated water, the carbon dioxide gas is what causes it to fizz. Flavored sparkling water can be naturally or artificially flavored as well, but it’s generally more popular than still flavored water among soda drinkers since the fizziness of sparkling water reminds them of soda.
