Every now and then I receive free products to try out and most recently I received a few free samples of Propel water. I had never tried Propel until now because I am a big water drinker and don't feel the need to substitute it. However, there are some people who actually don't like to drink water and substitute it whenever they can.
Vitamin enhanced waters are all the rage and are marketed towards the health crowd. The problem is that most of them contain tons of sugar and are high in calories. What stood out for me about Propel is that it is low calorie (10 calories per 8 oz serving.) It comes in several flavors (13 to be exact) and it actually tastes good in my opinion. Many people like flavored water and the taste is not overpowering at all. Unlike some flavored water that tastes way too sweet.
The vitamins in Propel include B vitamins (B6, B12), Niacin, Pantothenic Acid (to aid in energy metabolism) and vitamins C and E. Overall if you are not a big water drinker, it is a good substitute compared to the higher-calorie options on the market.
The only other thing to be aware of is that it does contain sucralose which may be a downside for some. If that doesn't concern you, it is a really good beverage to quench your thirst during a workout.
