It’s All Good: Karma Wellness Water (A Review)

| March 6, 2014 | 32 Comments

karma vitamin waterI’ll be honest, I don’t normally drink energy drinks or vitamin waters, so I was unsure of Karma Wellness Water for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I had heard that vitamin water was actually pointless because a vitamin’s potency deteriorates in water making vitamin water nothing other than flavoured water. The other reason was taste and ingredients. I am very picky when it comes to flavoured anything and I avoid artificial colours, flavours, and sweeteners as much as possible.

So, the first thing I did when my sample pack of Karma Wellness Water arrived was check the ingredients. I was pleased to see that the drinks contain no artificial ingredients as well as no preservatives. In fact, to keep the sugar content lower, Karma Wellness Water uses a combination of pure cane sugar and stevia, a natural sugar substitute.

I then read all of the ingredients to see if regularly consuming Karma Wellness Water is healthy. According to their website, every bottle of Karma contains 110 percent (or more) of the recommended daily allowance of seven essential vitamins, including vitamins A, B3-Niacin, B5-Pantothenic Acid, B6, B12, D, and E. So, the answer is yes, karmabut no more than one bottle per adult should be consumed daily, and if you are pregnant or nursing you should take extra precautions by reading their FAQ. My recommendation is that if you are looking to consume any vitamin water on a daily basis for a prolonged period of time, consult your physician – just to be sure it’s for you.

Despite my initial hesitations, I really liked Karma Wellness water,  and not just because each drink is low calorie – only 20 calories! Each flavour: Orange Mango (Sharper Thinking), Raspberry Guava Jackfruit (Fitness Accelerator), Acai Pomberry (Immunity Booster), Passionfruit Green Tea (Mood Elevation), and Pineapple Coconut (Vitality) tastes good and don’t leave an after taste. My favourite flavour was the Passionfruit Green Tea. It was so refreshing and flavourful – it was the perfect pick me up on what was otherwise a dreary winter day. Each drink is specially formulated with a certain state of wellness in mind – and I don’t know whether it was the vitamin mixture or the flavour, but Karma’s Passionfruit Green Tea definitely enlightened my mood!

Adding to their great taste is Karma’s unique KarmaCap technology that lets you choose when you want to add the vitamins to the water. To release the vitamins, you simply use your thumb and push down on the cap. Then gently shake the bottle, open and your drink is ready – complete with fresh vitamins that have not deteriorated in water like other premixed vitamin waters.

    I like the idea of releasing the vitamins when your ready to drink, I just hope that these taste as good as they claim, I’ve had vitamin water before and could not finish, but I would like to try these ones!!

    • ted-t says:

      These taste so good I love them and so do my kids

      • Antonia says:

        Your kids are not supposed to drink these. As a parent you should have healthy food choices at hand for them instead of a supplement. We’re adults we don’t have people to do that for us. And if you work to much then don’t make your kids suffer just as you do. Jesus. I wish I didn’t have to drink supplements to get my daily vitamins and nutrients. And I probably don’t have to. These things are not meant to be looked at as an alternative source of food. If you don’t fall in line with any of this then I apologize. Either way your kids are not supposed to consume these. It clearly labels it on the side “Adult use only”. Read your labels please.

        • Lyne Proulx says:

          Did you actually read the blog post? No where in the review we say these are for children. We actually inform our readers of this: So, the answer is yes, karma but no more than one bottle per adult should be consumed daily, and Karma isn’t recommended for pregnant or nursing women, or children.

        • Mike says:

          I might be a couple years late to this game…but please read the label. Then please prove it says “Adult Use Only”. lol. I have one in my hand right now. Its not on there. It also does not say anything about pregnant woman…so I headed to their website. Oh my god…take a look. Its safe for pregnant woman and kids! lol. Guess we should learn to read before posting…

          • Lyne says:

            Mike, there is actually a mention on their FAQ about pregnant women. I just added the link on the blog.

          • Michaela says:

            I don’t know why the site says it’s safe, right on the bottle the same side as the nutritional facts in tiny print it says for adult use only. Better safe then sorry isn’t it?

  3. Stephanie LaPlante says:

  5. Kelly Gordon says:

  6. Heidi C. says:

  7. amy lovell says:

  8. kathy downey says:

  9. kathy downey says:

  10. Cassey C says:

    The KarmaCap makes me want to try this drink!

  11. Karen E. Hill says:

    What ever happened to being able to drink our tap water?

  12. ted-t says:

    Have you read the FAQ page on their website it says that this drink is fine for children to drink it advises pregnant or nursing moms to consult a Dr because a lot of companies are reluctant to do testing on them. IT IS VITAMINS & SPRING WATER ppl so unless you over do it on vitamin overdose its fine to drink. Even pregnant and nursing moms its like Gatorade pretty much. So for ppl who can’t stomach or swallow pregnancy vitamins its perfect. Bring a bottle and ask a Dr to be safe of course cause different flavors have a different vitamin compound.

  13. Judy Cowan says:

    I have been reading good reviews about this product and I do like the fact that you can add the vitamins when you are ready to drink it. Unfortunately, because it contains Stevia I won’t be able to try them out because Stevia and I don’t agree 🙁

  14. Lee says:

    Where did you get the information that it is not safe for pregnant or nursing women? I could not find this info on their website.

  15. kathy downey says:

    I don’t have a 7-Eleven or Macs in my area

  16. Natalie says:

    why can’t breastfeeding and pregnant moms have this? It’s only vitamins, ain’t it?

  17. kathy downey says:

    If we all ate properly we would not need these drinks

  18. kathy downey says:

    I never did see this drink in stores in my area

  19. kathy downey says:

    I checked but i have not seen this yet in my area

  20. Cassie Fancy says:

  21. sarah alexis says:

    I would like to try the Mango one – sounds tasty!!!!

  22. Laurie Alain says:

    I love healthy drinks but have not seen this drink anywhere.

  23. Carole D. says:

    I haven’t try them, they do look delicious though. I don’t usually drink these kind of drinks!

  24. This is something that I will definitely research some more or look at more reviews on it. I am always interested in items like this and I guess try it for myself. Thank you for sharing your review.
