Vitamin Water and Junk Food Science blog
Vitamin water.....what a clever name. It's good for you right?
I mean, it's got extra vitamins and triple antioxidants no less.
One bottle has 32.5 grams of sugar. 32.5 grams!!!!!
So the extra vitamin c (150 mg) will be a nice extra benefit right?
Not when it has to compete with all that sugar. Remember vitamin c and sugar compete for entry into your cells. Guess who's going to win this one?
Stay away from the stuff!
If you have time check out Junk Food Science
It's an amazingly well written blog and has top notch information.
For all of you not sure about nitrates (and might be avoiding cold cuts and bacon) check out this post. (came across it on Dr. Eades great blog)
Enjoy the Day
