Is drinking Smart water truly the smart choice?

Smart Water Vs. Alkaline Water: The Low Down
What Is Smart Water? Also called Glaceau Smartwater, it is a brand of bottled water owned by Coca Cola. It is usually distilled to remove minerals and electrolytes but still has some of them, such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium added back.
Smart Water Comes from Tap Water
The hard truth is bottled water can be the exact same water you can get at home from the tap, but with an attached Smart Water price tag. It comes from the creator’s mouth himself: Smart Water starts out as tap water before undergoing the vapor distillation process.
The process has the tap water run through charcoal for purification and disinfecting. Electrolytes and choice minerals are then reintroduced.
Smart Water Undergoes Distillation
Distilled water means it’s purified or has gone through a thorough filtering process to remove traces of contaminants like viruses, bacteria, as well as heavy metals like arsenic, mercury, and aluminum.
On the downside, the filtration process can be indiscriminate with its job, even taking away healthy minerals already present in the water such as magnesium and potassium. Without these healthy elements and minerals in the water, its hydrogen content grows, thereby making the water highly acidic.
Depriving the Smart Water ingredients of minerals during the filtration process also leads the water into trying to balance out. The water does this by leeching minerals from your body, and even contaminants from its containers, which are usually plastic bottles.
Plastic water bottles actually pose a danger to your health. The plastic that goes into making water bottles contain harmful chemicals such as bisphenol A that has links to many health problems, and phthalates that can mimic and disrupt hormones.

Smart Water Has Electrolytes, but…
While electrolytes are ions essential to the body (leading the list are potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, and calcium), they are only ever beneficial to actual athletes. People who undergo rigorous endurance training often burn through energy and mineral stores so much throughout the day that they need a constant supply of Smart Water electrolytes to keep going.
A Better Alternative
Alkaline water is a better alternative to Smart Water, as it retains alkaline compounds like salts, magnesium, sodium, and potassium, among others.
The higher the content of alkaline compounds, the higher the water’s pH level becomes. Normal tap water having a meek 7 pH level (or lower, yikes!); alkaline water has 8 to 9.5 pH which is ideal for drinking.
Alkaline water helps neutralize an acidic bloodstream and provides better hydration. The ionization process that produces alkaline water makes water molecules smaller and more permeable to the cells, allowing easy absorption and transport of nutrients.
With big companies having highly effective marketing strategies in place just to get you to buy bottles of water you can just get at home, extra care and vigilance are needed when it comes to drinking water for your health.
Always do your research when seeing so-called healthier water. Look at ingredients, how it’s filtered, and if you can do one better by just installing an ionizer at home for 24/7 access to alkaline water.

Smart water might be the most crisp water I ever drank and having diabetes and is the only water so far that helps with my severe dry mouth. Thank you Coca Cola for a pretty good product. I’m looking for alternatives though.
Hi, Robert. We’re glad to hear you found water that works for you. However, we suggest that you open your mind and compare it to Tyent’s hydrogen-rich alkaline water. The reason why is that Smart Water doesn’t have antioxidants as Tyent Water does. Plus, there are over 1000 studies that show amazing health benefits from Tyent water.
A lot of singers and performers drink Tyent water because it helps keep their mouth and vocal cords hydrated. You can see videos from Rick Springfield, Terry Fator, and a pic of Jesse McCartney and Roger Daltrey on our website.
Since you want better options, look no further than Tyent’s hydrogen-rich alkaline water. Our process of electrolysis makes our water rich with higher antioxidant levels than those of regular water and even Smart Water. Give our water a try, and see the difference that drinking 8 glasses of Tyent alkaline water every day can make.
I have never had any problems from drinking smart water at all. But I do have a question is normal tap or spring water better for me than akalin water and if plastic bottles are bad to use how come you guys use it ?
Hi, Ralph. We suggest you open your mind to drinking alkaline water with molecular hydrogen, as it’s still the best option among the four that you mentioned. While smart water won’t necessarily make you sick, it doesn’t have the antioxidants that our alkaline water has. Our water ionizers are able to purify and mineralize your tap water, which is contaminated with a lot of bad stuff. Our ionizers will give you the kind of water that boosts your hydration, alkalinity, and weight loss.
Also, we don’t use plastic bottles, but we do have water ionizers and stainless steel tumblers for travel. Just out of curiosity, where did you see that we use plastic bottles?
Why is your water so high. It so hard to find here. The price of it once you find it Wow. There must be a common ground somewhere that price can come down for the every Joe.
Hi, Hazel. Our water ionizers are lifelong investments, so you’ll actually be saving more money over the years versus if you keep buying bottled water. All of our units come with a Lifetime warranty with no fine print. Plus, we offer a 75-day trial, too.
Good news: we offer a customizable, budget-friendly financing program for as little as $25 per month! You can also give us a call at 855-893-6887 and our water ionizer experts will happily accommodate you.
You don’t need a $4.2K machine to get the water you need. You’re body isn’t made of glass. And there are such things as bpa free plastic bottles.
Hi, James. Purchasing a top-of-the-line water ionizer once will help you save more money in the long run. While a bottle of prepackaged water costs anywhere between $2 to $10 (for high-end brands), Tyent water is 6 cents per glass. Plus, buying a Tyent water ionizer is much friendlier for the environment, as you won’t be wasting plastic.
Also, BPA-free plastic bottles can still pose a health risk. It’s much safer to get your own water ionizer from Tyent, as we don’t add chemicals to ionize your water and instead rely on our specially engineered electrolysis chamber and Ultra Filters to do the job for you.
Alkaline water has been ignored for so long. Majority of people still do not understand its benefits. It has proven to provide health benefits that smart or regular water don’t.
Hi, Noah. We agree with you 100%! Tyent’s high-quality alkaline water improves your hydration levels, reenergizes you naturally, aids in weight loss, and even keeps your teeth healthy. These benefits are made possible largely because of molecular hydrogen, which our water is filled with. It’s one of the smallest and most powerful antioxidants on earth that’s able to cross the blood/brain barrier and rejuvenate your body from deep within your cells.
Plus, you can use our water for more than just drinking! Clean and preserve the flavor of your produce with our turbo water, and wash your skin and hair with acidic water (also known as “Beauty Water” since it has the same pH level as your skin). Read up on this and more than 75 other uses in our Ultimate Water Ionizer Uses guide.
We’d love to talk to you more about our alkaline water over the phone, so please give our water experts a call at 855-893-6887.
I think the water infused with watermelon and mint makes
Me have a metallic taste in
My mouth is that possible ?
Hi, Joan. Do you mix your fruits with your tap water, bottled water, or another kind of water? If you use tap water, the metallic taste might come from the contaminants in your source water, especially if you don’t filter it before drinking. If you’d like to know more about the state of your source water, we can check its quality for free. Just sign up for our FREE Water Report, and our representatives will get back to you. Please feel free to talk to one of our water experts by calling 855-893-6887, too.
Smart water isn’t a bad option as you say. It’s one that I’ve found works for me sometimes and even works for my friends. I don’t see why I have to give it up.
