If they want to put something on the label they could put:
"Helps against thirst on the label."
Nobody needs a label like this on a bottle of water - and if the companies selling this water did not expect people to believe in an additional health effect - why would they even consider putting something like this on the label?
When you go shopping nowadays you can't tell a food store from a pharmacy. Unproven health claims everywhere.
Of course you can always argue if a specific health claim is ok or not - and agree or disagree with a specific decision. But report this in such a misleading way - that a law has been passed that specificly bans a certain claim shows how low the standards in journalism have become.
