Why is it so hard to drink enough water on a daily basis? Such a fundamental element of survival should come as naturally as breathing, and yet the majority of people suffer through perpetual dehydration, without even realizing it. The excuses are pitiful, but plentiful:
- I’m too busy to remember.
- Plain water doesn’t taste good.
- It’s too cold/not cold enough.
- Bottled water is wasteful.
I can’t drink straight from the tap.
- Public fountains are grimy.
- Caffeine is necessary in the morning.
Attempts at increasing any sort of fluid intake usually end in poor compromises for me, using sugary sodas, sports drinks, and juices as a crutch. I know I’ll feel better if I just swallow my pride along with a big swig of pure, clean, fresh water, but it’s never the most compelling option in the kitchen.
That’s all changed now that I have a Vitapod on the counter. This formidable machine works like a single-serve coffee maker with individual pods containing nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and most importantly to discriminating drinkers like myself, FLAVOR. Formulated by a panel of experienced doctors, the overall goal is to supplement up to 15 under-consumed vitamins and minerals that leave 9 out of 10 Americans under-nourished. The recyclable pods contain 90% less plastic than single-use water bottles, and will be 100% biodegradable by 2023.
Choose between 11 different flavors that include watermelon, raspberry hibiscus, green apple, and even cotton candy. In case you need an extra kick of caffeine, you can get your fix from the Iced Tea+ (60mg), Sports+ (100mg), and Energy+ (200mg) options, too. There are no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners in any of the beverage mixes.
The real beauty of the Vitapod system is that it doesn’t even need a flavor pack to function. The built-in multi-pass filtration system purifies water better than market leaders. Plus, the machine cools water to 50 – 59 degrees, which is the optimal temperature for hydration, allowing the body to absorb water quicker than water that’s too hot or cold. Simply dispense your drink over ice if you’d like it cooler.
Infuse your brew and take it to go in a reusable bottle and you’ll never go thirsty again. Now if that doesn’t solve all your dehydration difficulties, I don’t know what will.

sounds like a great way to get those vital nutrients
That machine sounds fantastic:) I love plain water, but here in Israel it is not as good as in my native country Finland, where it really is good.Nevethless, during the hot season here I drink really much water, no sugary drinks for me.
Interesting concept, I get the idea and like what Jael said plain water is the best but I will get some sugary drinks once in a while. Luckily I live in New Zealand where tap water is very clean and tastes good plus the produce specially the fruits are amazing, good quality and cheap, so no need to artificial flavours.
Oh yum! Does this also make the water carbonated as well? We have been looking at a better alternative as we want to be kind to the environment.
Sadly, no carbonation here, although I think that might be for the best. I’m trying to tame my soda addiction and I feel like it’s easier to break away without the bubbles as a reminder. Besides, it’s so satisfying as is, it doesn’t need it!
This is a very interesting option, thanks!
[…] the sake of thrift and flavor, save all of that shiitake-infused soaking water as part of the cooking liquid, just for starters. It should be a crime to toss such savory […]
