We generally don’t review sports drinks and vitamin drinks. It’s not our sweet spot; we focus on beverages that are delicious.
We’ve tried a few vitamin water drinks over the years, where either a tablet or a powder is added to a bottle of water immediately before consumption. Every one we tried tasted, well, yucky.
The first brand we’d drink because it actually tastes good is Activate Workout. It’s produced by The Rising Beverage Company, which makes other enhanced waters as well.
According to the company, which conducted research with an independent analytical laboratory, vitamins and other active ingredients lose their potency sitting in water.
So they created a release-top bottle cap. Twist the cap and the active ingredients fall into the water. Shake the bottle and drink.
We tried two of the four flavors, which include Grape, Lulo Pear,* Passionfruit and Pink Grapefruit.
*Lulo, also known as naranjilla or “little orange,” is a South American fruit that tastes like rhubarb and lime—perhaps with a hint of pineapple.
