Why is a sweetener company writing about hydration? Simply because juices, sodas and energy/sports drinks are a prime source of sugar, which many of our readers are trying to avoid. With our bodies being 60 percent to 70 percent water, hydration is still a must. (Trust us on this, we’re based in Arizona.)

WATER UP! – Keep hydration fun & healthy | SweetLeaf®

Some health experts, including Dr. Oz, say that drinking 16 ounces of water before meals can help you lose weight. Other experts repeat the old advice of eight glasses daily for weight control.

When you do drink, water is still the best everyday option: Widely available, refreshing and often free – not just of cost, but of calories, sugar, and assorted scary artificials. Yet not everyone likes the taste (or lack of taste, as the case may be!).

That’s where we come in. Our liquid stevia Sweet Drops make a great water enhancer – with zero calories, zero carbs, zero sugar, no bitterness or aftertaste, no artificial sweeteners or bad stuff. All you’re adding to your water is natural flavor and natural sweetness, in the exact amount you like.

With 20 flavors and growing, Sweet Drops make it delicious to stay hydrated. Our Water Pack contains Berry, Lemon and Valencia Orange; if you prefer sparkling water, our Soda Pack has Cola, Root Beer and Grape for alternatives to artificially sweetened diet carbonated drinks. Sweet Drops in Watermelon, Grape, Peppermint, Apricot Nectar, and Coconut flavors all have their fans, too. Watch for even more new flavors soon, including some voted by our Facebook fans.
