Smart Water is a bottle water brand that adds electrolytes to the water to replenish the body after athletic competition or training. The water quickly became a hit and everyone was picking up a bottle of Smart Water, even if they didn’t need electrolyte replacement. Today, Smart Water is a choice for anyone and everyone who wants to drink healthier bottle water, but it is not the athletic hit the Glaceau, the company behind the water, wanted it to be. Somehow along the way the average Joe adopted Smart Water as a cult favorite and the athletic community never got the memo.

List of Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Water with electrolytes.

Product Features

Smart Water, like other water companies, explains the water source and the filtration process. Smart Water is sourced from tap water – like the kind you run in your kitchen. They run the water through charcoal, disinfect the water and then add electrolytes back into the water. There are other processes that take place to help the water taste better. These processes are the same across the board with most water companies. At the end of the process, Glaceau has Smart Water, electrolyte-fortified water.

Smart Water is not the same as common bottled water. This water contains electrolytes, so it is an unflavored sports drink in a water bottle. This fact is lost on most consumers who simply think Smart Water is just cool water in a cool bottle. Consuming electrolytes from Smart Water without exercising is not going to cause a problem for most drinkers. If you consumed lots of Smart Water you could cause an imbalance in electrolytes, theoretically, but we did not find any information that lead us to believe this was a problem.

Advantages

  • Smart Water is vapor distilled and disinfected.
  • The water is ideal for electrolyte replenishment after exercise.
  • The bottle is one of the most popular in the bottle water industry.
  • Glaceau does not hide any part of the production process.

Disadvantages

  • Smart Water is bottled water with electrolytes.
  • The product was designed for athletes and people who need to replenish electrolytes after exercise.
  • Theoretically, the water could cause a problem with electrolyte balance.
  • Smart Water is sourced from tap water.

Conclusion

Smart Water is nothing more than tasty tap water with potassium, calcium and magnesium. There is a huge conspiracy theory that the world is being taken for millions of dollars by the bottled water industry because of the tap water source. Smart Water is healthier than some tap water, hands down, but it is not going to help you lose weight or get healthier.

    This is essentially just tap water that has been boiled then condensed back into water with the minerals that were left behind when it was boiled added back in to it.

    I bought a bottle of smart water and I love smart water but this particular bottle had the most awful taste that I have ever taste. I don’t know if I just got one of the bad bottle or they all were like that. I was very disappointed. I bought the water from a dollar tree 18 miles from my house. I was really upset about this.

    I opened a bottle of Smart Water on Mother’s day and found several reddish brown insects or flies or something along thee threaded portion of the bottle and inside the threaded portion of the cap. You really had to look to see if they were moving, being so small, and they were. It was disgusting needless to say. Have you received similar complaints?

    I am confident my electrolytes are being replenished. However, I noticed retention of fluids. Why? I do not seem to retain fluids from Spring water or RO water. The Smart water caused a 5 lb wt gain over night.

    Can you open a bottle of Smart Water not finish and save for another day. I was told that you could not open a bottle and then use it again later or another time. I do not like my water cold so I do not refrigerate.

    To be honest, it’s easy to think this could be “Emporer’s new clothes” type water, and I can’t vouch for the health benefits it claims…however, what I’ve kind of been looking for in a water, I found in this- a really clean, sharp, fresh taste in a nice shape bottle. Not expensive either.

    Such a disconnect in peoples minds about this, they buy a bottle at a price they could buy 5 times as much PURE VAPOR DISTILLED WATER buying it by the gallon, or getting a machine or Solar distiller to distill your own water.
    THIS is the “Smart” part of this water.! Nutritionists and people who think the body uses isolated chemical elements, overlook the simple fact that the REASON this water is so amazing is because its VAPOR DISTILLED WATER!!!

    Nice marketing ploy. This water has very low electrolyte content. Nothing compared to the traditional Gatorade or PowerAde. the label indicates that electrolytes are added for flavor only.

    does smartwater contain fluoride and/or chlorine?

    [Reply]

    Your Name

    Nope its vapor distilled so it doesn’t matter where the source is and they list what they add

    [Reply]

    Jack

    Yes it does contain Floride AND Chlorine. Check its ingredients online or on the bottle.

    [Reply]

    Jose

    Maybe you should read the bottle, have one in front of me – No Floride or Chlorine. Which make sense, when you distill water you get pure water vapor, anything else you have to add. Or maybe you’re just misreading Chloride for Chlorine, where you got Floride I have no idea?
