Known as Nature's Gatorade, the electrolytes found in coconut water are known to hydrate better and faster than regular water. The main electrolyte found in coconut water is potassium. It's lighter in sodium compared to sports drinks, but doesn't contain the added sugars, artificial flavorings, or colors! Coconut water is wonderful for anti-aging, anti-carcinogenic and dehydration due to excessive sweating or diarrhea. It's full of enzymes that aid in digestion as well. Add in fresh, young coconut water for a sweet treat to your post workout NutriBlast or anytime you need a super electrolyte and nutrient boost.
Look for young coconut water that is sold without added sugars or ingredients. They usually come in boxed containers, but can also be found in bottles and cans as well as the coconut itself! Tastes may vary depending on brand and coconuts used so find one that suits your tastebuds. Keep coconut water stored in the fridge to add a nice chill to your Blast.
