I’m not the best at drinking water and generally am not great at taking supplements either so when I was sent some Karma Wellness Water to try it was a challenge – water and vitamins!
I’m not a nutritionist or doctor but according to Karma Wellness their research showed that “only 40 per cent of vitamins are absorbed from a multivitamin pill, whereas 90 per cent to 95 per cent of vitamins are consumed when dissolved in liquid”. That’s a pretty big difference!
So the idea with the Karma vitamin drinks is that the drink and vitamins are kept separately until ready to drink unlike other vitamin waters. The vitamins are preserved in the cap at the top and when you are ready to drink you peel back the sticker on the cap, press the button to release the vitamins into the water, shake then drink. Easy right!?
So I gave it a go with three flavours they sent to me – an acai one, a mango one and a lime one. The flavours for me were a little bit artificial as I don’t tend to drink soft drinks let alone ones that have added sweeteners like stevia as I am not keen on the taste – but in my head I figured ok this is much needed vitamins I am drinking and it was more palatable 🙂
Each bottle contains plenty of vitamins including vitamins A, B3, B5, B6, B12, D and E. They do have added stevia and are only 20 calories a 600ml drink.
I like the idea in principle – as being someone that generally isn’t great at remembering to drink water and take vitamins it’s a great way to do both.
Great range of flavours that are light and not too heavy like a juice
Handy for the gym bag. All three that I tried I took whilst at the gym after a workout and the drink was refreshing and handy and me being bad at drinking water meant I knew I was getting some fluid in!
The price if you were to take these regularly would be higher than your average multi vitamins over 30 days
If you aren’t keen on stevia style flavouring you might not like the drink
