I am often asked to demo new wellness or nutrition based products. This weekend I had the privilege of trying Mio, a relatively new product to enhance the flavor and nutrient profile of water.

The problem with this product is not that it does not taste good or provide an alternative to the sometimes mundane task of drinking water… The product is entirely synthetic!

I can commiserate with those who find the taste of water bland and encourage the use of more authentic methods such as drinking tea or perhaps trying the electrolyte mixes that at least add a slew of vitamins to the water…

But I would like to take this time to reinforce the importance of drinking water and proper hydration.

I found this great WebMD article on 6 reasons to drink more water:

1. Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids.
2. Water Can Help Control Calories.
3. Water Helps Energize Muscles.
4. Water Helps Keep Skin Looking Good.
5. Water Helps Your Kidneys.
6. Water Helps Maintain Normal Bowel Function.
