WTRMLN WTR is an all-natural, cold-pressed juice made from raw watermelon and is packed with nutrition. It’s vegan and gluten free, super hydrating (91 percent water) and doesn’t taste like you’re drinking sweat. Plus, the company itself makes the beverage from 100 percent watermelon waste (the dented watermelons picked last in gym class), so not only are you boosting your health, but the environment’s too.
The refreshing bevvy contains double the potassium of a banana, which is a vital mineral for your heart, kidneys and other organs to function properly. It’s loaded with citrulline, which reduces inflammation and accelerates muscle recovery. It also contains lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant known for its anti-aging benefits, and is a delish source of vitamins A and C, B vitamins, calcium and magnesium (cha-ching!).
After studying the nutrition labels of WTRMLN WTR and “the other guys,” their nutritional values are virtually neck-and-neck. Where WTRMLN WTR soars, coconut water falls short, and vice versa.
This information is based on a serving of eight fluid ounces, and the percentages are based on a 2,000-calorie diet:
Now, these numbers are only based on one company’s blend. Since there are oodles of coconut water varieties to choose from, it’s über-difficult to gauge which water is truly “better” for you — the numbers will come out differently every time. I’m positive more studies will be done in the future on the effectiveness of these drinks, especially with how popular plant-based waters have become.
The decision ultimately comes down to your personal tastes and which flavors you find to be most thirst quenching.
