I’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, but 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.
Karma is available for purchase at several national retailers including Macs, 7-eleven, and Metro. If you are interested in vitamin waters, give Karma Wellness Water a try! It tastes great and because you add the vitamins when you are ready to drink it, you know you are getting what you paid for!
