The ultimate thirst quencher and hydration drink packed with electrolytes and antioxidants.
Why It's Good For You:
Coconut water has so many amazing health benefits. It's packed full of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. The star of the show is potassium, but it also contains a small amount of sodium, calcium, and magnesium, making it the perfect natural electrolyte drink.
Electrolytes are critical to maintaining hydration and preventing dehydration, as well as maintaining blood volume and heart health. Maintaining electrolyte levels can help reduce dehydration, fatigue, stress, and helps aid muscle relaxation.
Coconut water also tastes delicious and is the perfect base for any smoothie or even on its own with a squeeze of lime. That's what makes this coconut hydrator so good for you.
Of course, coconut water from the coconut is best, but when buying commercial coconut water, choose brands without any added sugar or preservatives.
