i was buying some grocery stuff when i spotted something in a bottle that labeled vitamin water..so cool huh...so convenient i guess to let our kids drink it and at the same time sure that they really takes their vitamin supplements daily especially if we had a hard time reminding them always or even a problem of swallowing the tab or the pill..how about you guys? do you buy or prefer this kind of water or the capsule like or tablet form kind of vitamin supplements?

Hello vanities, I think there are a lot of stuff like reversed osmosis water, vitamin water, and many more available in the market. It makes our lives easier - we don't need to force ourselves to take supplement anymore and no need to buy expensive dispenser just to get RO water. But, I am not too sure whether the claim is true or not. Maybe it is just a gimmic to sell the product?

The water is not as good of a source of vitamins as a supplement. Plus you are in taking about 250 calories, extra sodium, and extra sugar that you don't need in your diet.

I am not sure if there is enough vitamins in the vitamin water to make much of a difference. I like to get them as a treat. They are better for you than pop and taste better than plain water. I really like the Dragonfruit flavor and the orange one. I try to remember to take my vitamins daily.

I sometimes drink vitamin water, but only if it is in a flavor I like, and only if it doesn't cost me anything (when I visit my home, my mom always has some). I take a vitamin pill almost every day, so really don't need the extra vitamins, but I don't think it can really hurt you. The one issue with these is that I don't think some of the vitamins are very easily absorbed from vitamin water. But I'm not sure on that, that is just what a friend has told me.

water in itself is a vitamin already unless you are referring to de-mineralized water such as distilled or purified which is usually in the market. it is like putting in back the minerals that they have taken out. isn't it kinda weird? I don't buy it and i won't buy it , i would rather buy a "mineral" water or an alkaline water.

I like the orange vit water with potassium. I'm supposed to eat an orange or banada every day. Oranges cost a lot and bananas make it hard for me to go to the bathroom. Orange juice seems strong in acid to me, but the vitamin water seems just right for me.

It might be a nice way to put across vitamins but I'd prefer the tabs. Somehow I doubt the effectiveness of a water based vitamin intake. What if the vitamin is soluble or something like that ? Just take the regular and proven vitamins.

I've been seeing a lot of bottled water products that contain vitamins and they all come in different flavors. As for me, I still prefer taking multivitamins/vit c in tablet form since they are all tried and tested. =)

It never ceases to amaze me how far companies go now with bottled water. If you had of told Coca Cola 15 years ago that WATER would be one of their biggest selling lines they would have told you that you were crazy! I personally have no issues taking tablets so when it comes to taking vitamins I would stick to the old fashioned ways I think! And if you consider having to buy a daily bottle of vitamin water versus a bottle of vitamin tablets I am sure that the costs would add up pretty quickly if you relied on vitamin water alone! I can see that it would be great for kids or people in general that don't like to swallow pills though.

Hello dear vanities. I would like to drink water with vitamins if I can find it in the local market which is on sale. I think that it would be more convenient and probably it is easier to get absorbed. But still I prefer more than getting vitamins from different kinds of food, as it is more natural from food. Take care, dear friend.

Hi Vanities, I have encountered the same in supermarkets here before too. They taste great! Drink it if you need an extra boost but if you are looking at long-term consumption, I would think the recommended approach is to get your vitamins (and minerals, etc) from fruits vegetables. If you feel you are not getting enough and want to pop tablets, I guess go ahead. It would be an additional expense though.

I prefer the vitamins in a pill form but I like vitamin water, it is nice to know that we can have extra vitamins that way.

hi vanities I take my vitamins in capusle form myself as the vitamins in water seen really pricey to me. I also always look for a vitamin that has added minerals as I am a diabetic and always am looking for ways to take better care of myself. I like any vitamin that incorporates q10 and calcium in it as well as the eye minerals.

I drink vitamin water because I do not like plain water. Plus I like the extra vitamins. Some of the different flavors taste really good.

I drink this once in awhile if I feel I could use the extra vitamin boost, and if I like the flavor. Otherwise, it is a lot of calories that I could avoid by just taking a vitamin. (though I don't!)

I think the best way to get kids to take vitamins is through tablets cause the company that manufactures the water only needs his or her product to contain 1% of vitamin to be able to paste that label on their product. even some whole grain manufacturers do the same thing it's a marketing strategy. So the best way to get your kids to take their vitamins is by giving them they children's vitamins they come in chewy where if the child can't swallow he or she may suck or chew the vitamin like a candy and still get its good-ness or liquid where it just slides down the child's throat!
