Sports and Energy Drinks: Help or Hype?
Sports drinks, energy drinks and other so-called healthy beverages have become extremely popular. Unfortunately, these trendy designer drinks come at a steep price. Millions have been tricked into believing flavored waters do “a body good.” False promises of vitamin-rich, high energy tonics are poisoning and addicting the naïve and the hopeful.
Why shouldn’t you believe your favorite sport celebrities even though the products they advertise are anything but healthy? Celebrities are successful, rich, and on television, so they must be telling you the truth, right? Not necessarily. Chances are, they’re clueless. It’s their job to sell the product. It’s your job to ensure it’s safe, especially if you’re giving it to your children.
If you’ve been following Kilr Kravings you know there’s a well crafted scheme behind the deceptive plan that has unsuspecting consumers ingesting the worst poisons on earth. Heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure are common, even among young children. While we can’t point the finger solely at these “fake water” drinks, they’re certainly contributing to the sick epidemic and if you’re consuming them on a regular basis, you’re most likely addicted to processed (packaged) foods too. They seem to go hand in hand.
What happens when you choose processed water drinks instead of the water your body was designed to drink? You suffer; chances are you’re suffering a lot. From the beat of your heart to the joints in your knees and hips, every bodily function requires water. Got pain, stiff joints, headaches? Drink water. Pain is often the effect of toxic foods and drinks not being flushed (with water) from the body. Many “dis-eases” can be prevented by getting adequate water. In his book, “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water,” F. Batmanheldji, M.D. explains a new discovery that lack of water in the body- chronic dehydration- is the root cause of many painful degenerative diseases, including asthma, allergies, hypertension, excess body weight and some emotional problems including depression.
According to Joseph Mercola, M.D., studies show many sports drinks cause tooth decay, contain excess sodium (the bad kind of salt) and chemical additives in the form of “natural” and artificial flavors. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS), another common ingredient found in processed water drinks, contributes to obesity and diabetes. Sports drinks are often no better than drinking a can of soda.

Does this sound like something you'd want in your body?
Coca-Cola was sued in 2009 for illegally marketing the well advertised, “Vitamin Water.” Like most flavored waters, it's sugar water with few vitamins added. No better than soda, and a lot more expensive.

Next time you’re thirsty reach for what your body (not your media programmed mind) really wants and needs, water. You’ll feel better, look better and live a whole lot better (and save money too!).
“People think products in TV ads are safe and ads are ‘approved’ by the FDA or the FTC. They are not, and people need to remember advertising for what it is: to get you to buy the product. It’s up to you to evaluate the claims.”
