About AquaVita Zero Calorie Sparkling Water

AquaVita Zero Calorie Sparkling Water is a beverage brand with natural based ingredients, free of harsh artificial dyes and colors and free of artificial ingredients. Proudly made in the U.S.A., AquaVita Zero Calorie Sparkling Water is committed to offering delicious refreshing sparkling water that is natural yet affordable to consumers that want to “green” up their everyday beverages.

AquaVita Zero was founded by two dads who wanted better more healthy beverage choices for their kids and families and consumers. As working dads on the go, we knew how hard it is to eat, drink and keep healthy. And we knew it’s even tougher when it comes to our families and kids to make the right choice when it comes to selecting a refreshing beverage. That’s why we developed a more healthy natural zero calorie and all-natural fruit flavor infused beverage that’s great tasting and still calorie free for us and even for our kids. This way we at least could give consumers a more balanced choice when selecting a carbonated beverage at the local store down the street. We know it’s a small step, but this was our way of creating a great option for our kids and ourselves too. Try AquaVita for yourself, we know you’ll find it refreshing and delicious and best of all without the guilt of sugar filled beverages.

Our beverages are designed for anyone looking to cut out the calories, but keep the taste with all-natural ingredients. AquaVita Zero is made with natural calorie ingredients.
