Okay, I drink "vitamin water" a lot because it is not very sweet, tastes somewhat good and has a little bit of fructose which keeps me from falling on my face when my blood sugar drops off (often) but doesn't drop me off 20 minutes later like sugary soft drinks or even orange juice do. But the stuff costs $1.50 or something for a 20oz thing of it, which is ridiculous. I don't feel as stupid paying that for this as I do for plain water in a bottle, which is available for free, because at least this stuff has some ingredients in it. But it's still too much to pay for something so simple. So I decided to make my own. I will start with lemonade flavor as I know where to get the flavor for that. I also know I can buy fructose powder and add just a little of that (if my limited research is correct fructose is sweeter than other sugars per amount and doesn't kick your ass as much insulin wise). My question is this: maybe, just maybe, the vitamins that are included help me out a bit. So how do I go about adding vitamins to my water? Which vitamins can I crush up and toss in the mix? I figure I will get the taste down and then make it a concentrate so I can just add cold water to it in a clean bottle and go. Any ideas?
