The smart beverage choice? Yes, you guessed it … water. Water is not only the perfect beverage to quench your thirst, but it is also a wise choice. In a recent post by the International Bottled Water Association, it was cited that when looking to make “healthy lifestyle choices, one of the simplest changes you can make is to drink water instead of less healthy sugary beverages.”
A few interesting facts in the post include:
- According to the Institute of Medicine and the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, one-third of American adults are overweight and another one-third is obese. And, over the last 30 years, children’s obesity rates have climbed from 5 percent to 17 percent.
- Drinking zero-calorie beverages, such as water, instead of sugary drinks is regularly cited as a key component of a more healthful lifestyle. Promoting greater consumption of water from all sources, including bottled water, will support the efforts of communities striving for a healthier lifestyle.
- With the United States facing high rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease, drinking water is always a healthy decision. Convenient access to bottled water as a healthy alternative to sugary beverages helps consumers make better choices.
We could not agree more, and we hope that the next time you reach for a beverage, you will reach for a refreshing bottle of Fontis Water.
