"Plant powered" bottled water with pumped up nutrient and health claims

A line of "plant powered" bottled waters is labeled/marketed with claims of fighting inflammation, being an excellent source of antioxidants, etc...


The product marketing states, for example, that various ingredients (herbs, etc.) "detoxify" the liver and are loaded with antioxidants and electrolytes. However, the Nutrition Facts panel on each product shows no antioxidant or electrolyte content, so these claims are unsubstantiated and cannot be made. Claiming to treat liver (and other medical) conditions is something that only a regulated, tested and approved drug can do, not a food product or even a supplement. Additionally, there are no FDA disclaimers for any of the purported health claims.
