Electrolyte Water vs Bottled: Is There a Noticeable Difference?

May 25, 2021

Electrolyte water is infused with minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

Bottled water can originate from many different sources, even sometimes from the same place as tap water.

Water makes up to 60 percent of the human body. If you lose even a small amount of water, your body cannot  perform all its essential functions at its optimal level. When electrolyte levels in your blood become low, it can cause an imbalance.  Symptoms can include: fatigue, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, cramping,  headaches, and the list goes on and on.

When you become dehydrated, electrolytes step in to regulate hydration levels to help keep your body performing well. Ideally, you should have half your body weight daily. For my experiment, during one week straight, I drank the same amount of each type of water at the same time period: Trader Joe’s Alkaline Water + Electrolytes and Poland Spring Spring Water.


The Electrolyte had a heavier taste, but I did not feel any more energy than from Spring water.  However, I did feel more nourished with the electrolyte water.
