Coconut Water - One of Earth's most Perfect Drinks

Coconut water is water that comes from a green, young coconut (not the aged, brown, fuzzy kind you find in the grocery store). And it’s fat free, unlike it’s aged sisters, whose water has hardened to a sweet meat that is high in fat. 

Did you know that as little as 11 fluid ounces of coconut water contains more potassium than a banana? And the same size serving of coconut water contains more than 15 times the potassium found in the average sports drink!

Ten reasons why coconut water is worth adding to your diet:

1. It contains the five essential electrolytes: potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, and calcium.

2. It replenishes the body’s fluids after a workout

3. It provides immune support and detoxification

4. It cleanses the kidneys and eases stomach aches.

5. It regulates function of the intestine

6. It improves muscle performance and allows for quicker muscle recovery after a workout

7. It promotes smoother skin and healthier hair and nails

8. It boosts circulation by carrying oxygen and nutrients to cells.

9. It promotes heart health, weight loss and mental acuity.

10. It reinforces proper alkaline balance
