Nothing Smart About Smart Water

from http://blog.fooducate.com

Did you catch the giant billboard ads of beautiful Jennifer Aniston pushing Smart Water? We saw one the other day and started to think that the only smart thing about this water, is the fact that Coca Cola, the parent company of manufacturer Glaceu, can actually convince millions of people to spend so much money on water.
Sure it has some added ingredients:
vapor distilled water, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride and potassium bicarbonate (electrolyte sources*) electrolytes added for taste.
There’s nothing special here and unless you are an elite athlete, you certainly don’t need any extra electrolytes beyond what you get in your food.
OK, the other smart thing was Jennifer Aniston agreeing to do the ad, she probably made a lot of money. Our suggestion to you: drink tap water. In most places, it is perfectly fine to drink. And cheap. If you do have concerns, get a home filtration system.
