Is WTRMLN WTR the next coconut water? Tumblr

Move over coconut water, you have some competition. Coconut water became a staple on shelves in such markets such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's over the last several years, but now, there is a "new" drink that is also a tastier (although many find coconut water to be an acquired taste) and healthier alternative to most sugary, carbonated drinks.

Compared to those sugary drinks, WTRMLN WTR is packed with nutrition and flavor. The hot pink drink is 100% raw watermelon; its listed ingredients include watermelon flesh, watermelon rind and lemon. It's accurately described as “summer in your mouth.” Having finished numerous bottles of the product, I certainly cannot argue, as it tastes exactly like how you might imagine a juiced watermelon would taste -- sweet, very tasty and refreshing. And with springtime around the corner, it's certainly the perfect drink for a warm day. And while the watermelon water tastes delightful, it also has nutritional value.

What are some of the health benefits? Well, the 12fl oz. bottle has almost double the potassium of a single banana: 740 mg. Potassium is a vital mineral necessary for the heart, kidneys and other organs to function normally. (An added benefit of potassium? It's a great hangover cure!) WTRMLN WTR also has less sugar than such popular drinks as Tropicana orange juice and POM Wonderful.

It also replenishes nutrients and is rich in such antioxidants as Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Vitamin C has numerous health benefits ranging from helping prevent the common cold to staving off deadly diseases like cancer. Vitamin A is key for good vision, a healthy immune system and cell growth. And if you’re craving that summer skin glow, WTRMLN juice is full of lycopene, which is known for its anti-aging benefits.
