Don't Fall for the Latest "Desginer Water' Fad...

Many people are fooled by the slick marketing schemes for 'Designer Water'. None of them can really beat plain, pure water. For example, on April 1, Coco-Cola released its latest enhanced water product called 'Fruitwater,' described as a 'great tasting, naturally flavored zero calorie sparking water beverage.'1 Despite its name, it does NOT contain any juice. Rather it's sweetened with sucralose and 'natural fruit flavors.' Sucralose (Splenda) is an artificial sweetener, like aspartame, is associated with host of side effects including 
GI problems,
Seisures, dizziness, and migraines
Blurred vision,
Allergic reactions,
Blood sugar increase and weight gain.
So be wise with your choice of what goes into your body.
