So we all agree that nature made is better than man made, right? Whole foods are always better than processed foods! What if I told you nature made a sports drink that is way better for you than popular sports drinks? Well…there is! Coconut Water!! Guys coconut water is nature’s sports drink!
Coconut water is the clear liquid that is found in the center of a green coconut. Young coconut water is more nutrient dense than mature coconut water. Coconut water is super hydrating and is jam packed with goodness! Multiple articles compared it to a popular sports drink and in every category coconut water came out on top. It has ample amounts of antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and zinc. Fewer calories than popular sports drinks and less sodium as well. Plus coconut water is super easy to digest! Along with all the nutrients above coconuts are known to help heal our hearts, brains, teeth, and skin.
Coconut water does have a nutty flavor that doesn’t appeal to come but you can always use it in smoothies instead of water! So go try some. You may find you love it! Remember if we keep doing the little things they add up to big things. Replacing a sports drink with coconut water may sound like a little thing, but eventually it could make a big difference.
