Hi, I'm Charlotte Lawson, a registered and licensed dietitian, and in our fast-paced, on-the-go world, we're probably wondering, "Do I have enough vitamins and minerals in my diet?" And I have a little bit of information on how to add these vitamins to, maybe, a simple bottled water that you carry with you. There's a lot of great products on the market that actually just have a pour in to a certain bottle of water, juice blend for instance, a lot of our Crystal Light, our sugar-free beverages and some of these do contain vitamins, as well as a couple minerals. But, you can also buy certain things that actually are jam packed with vitamins and minerals and made to go into that bottled water. Now, this is normally found in your cold preventative aisle. I'm sure you've seen those mega doses of vitamin C or other things like that. Now again, there's no other really way to do it unless it's been commercially prepared to be added to water like this. Say, for instance, you wanted to buy a vitamin or mineral just from an over-the-counter oral form. You could attempt to crush it up and pour it into your watter bottle, and it may work to a certain degree but some vitamins are water soluble whereas others are fat soluble. So, you really can't get a whole complete vitamin panel I guess, if you will, from just dissolving some in water. Really the best source of vitamins and mineral in our diet are fruits and vegetables as well as our whole grains. Looking into incorporating a well-rounded diet really will help ensure, especially with good variety out of that diet, help to ensure that you're getting the appropriate amount of vitamins and minerals. I'm Charlotte, and eat happy.
