Electrolyte Enhanced Bottled Water from Whole Foods

Updated on December 30, 2010

Buy Electrolyte Enhanced Water at Whole Foods

If you are looking for an electrolyte enhanced water without the added sugars to help replenish your body after strenuous workouts, I found that the Electrolyte Enhanced Water from Whole Foods is a great buy for $1.50 - $2.00 per bottle for up to 1.5 liters (prices may very by promotion and location).This is flat water and not carbonated mineral water. This product is part of Whole Foods' 365 Everyday Value Products ®.

I wanted to get the electrolyte replenishment from beverages without drinking sports drinks like Gatorade or sugar drinks like Sobe Life Water that have added ingredients. When I came across the Whole Foods Electrolyte water I was very happy to have an inexpensive water with the additives I needed after strenuous workouts like running or hot yoga. Ideally, I would have liked to find a spring water with an electrolyte balance but the Whole Foods water is purified tap water with electrolytes added.

Why do you need electrolytes?

Participating in strenuous workout and sweating will cause you to lose electrolytes that need to be replenished. Not all athletic activity or sweating required you to seek out additional hydration or replenishment, but if you are sweating and need the replenishment it is a good idea to find a beverage that fits your lifestyle. Learn more about what electrolytes are at Discovery Health.

Beverages such as Powerade and Gatorade include ingredients and essential salts that help replenish what you lose after sweating, but these drinks also include ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, carbohydrates and dyes. You can find a beverage that achieves the electrolyte replenishment without the additives of other sports drinks that may not meet your hydration needs.

The symptoms of electrolyte imbalance include things such as fatigue and muscle spasms. If you think you may be experiencing an imbalance, see your doctor or consult a licensed trainer.

Whole Foods Spring Water Bottles

The Spring Water from Whole Foods from the 365 Everyday Value line is bottled from a natural spring in Arkansas, USA and distributed and bottled by Whole Foods. For the days you don't need the added electrolytes of the enhanced water, the Spring Water in 24 pack water bottles offers a more natural alternative to other bottled water from municipal water sources.

When you are purchasing bottled water, check the source. Not all bottled water comes from natural springs. Many brands are just filtered tap water in bottles. Some grocery stores only offer a limited selection of bottled spring water. Check the labels and the water source to make sure you are getting the best value for your money. The amount of TDS (total dissolved solids) is regulated by the FDA and TDS levels differ by water source. Spring water is treated to remove bacteria and harmful material. Municipal water that is treated and then bottled may contain additives for taste or nutrition purposes.

Brands like Aquafina, Nestle and Dasani are bottled from municipal tap water sources, while brands like Ozarka and the Whole Foods 365 are from natural spring sources.
