If you don't have some kind of electrolyte imbalance, rather rare on an everyday basis, plain water is the best. Further, for everyday activities drinking whatever amount of water for health is silly unless you feel thirsty. Your body has a very intricate mechanism for regulating your state of hydration, and has evolved to use only the most natural hydration liquid--- Water.
