Alternatives To Water?

REVIEWS | | February 7, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Water is good for you. That is just a truthful statement. Knowing that and still managing to drink it is really not so easy. The past few weeks I was approached about test driving some beverage alternatives. Of course I said yes, anything but water always sounds better. And way better if it is not the soda I reach for. Luckily I don’t keep soda in the house or I would be in real trouble.


What I loved

  • I loved all the fruity flavors, especially the blueberry pomegranate and the  kiwi-strawberry.
  • It beats soda any day
  • Propel Mind is packed with antioxidant vitamin E plus choline, an essential nutrient for the brain – how could that be bad?
  • Propel Body has 10% daily value of fiber – and that is always a tough nutrient to pack up on.
  • Comes in powder format so you can take it anywhere (even through airport security).

What I did not

  • The sugary taste, real or not, was certainly too much for me.


What I liked

  • That the High Fructose Corn syrup is now gone and no longer in the G2!
  • Only 20 calories (for the 8oz)
  • No doubt about it Gatorade does hydrate. Even if not a sports person you can instantly feel quenched.
  • That there was no sticky syrupy taste in my mouth.

What I didn’t

  • It may be the electrolytes but Gatorade always leave a tinge of chemical taste in my mouth.

Disclosure: I received both of these products to review.
