What do Rihanna and Madonna have in common? Besides both of them being incredibly talented pop stars, they know the benefits of drinking coconut water. Rihanna even had a sponsorship deal with Vita-coco. I am also a BIG fan of coconut water and drink at least one bottle, almost daily. When I was recently vacationing in Thailand, I drank them right out of the coconut.
It's been dubbed "Mother Nature's sports drink." I swear it is one of nature's secret treats and we are just beginning to learn the benefits. There are several health benefits to drinking coconut water. It’s an all-natural way to hydrate, reduce sodium, and add potassium to diets. Most Americans don’t get enough potassium in their diets because they don’t eat enough fruits, vegetables or dairy, so coconut water can help fill the nutritional gaps.
Here are some of the benefits:
HIGH in potassium and magnesium.
Low in calories.
Rich in antioxidants.
With summer about to make it's way, hopefully, you will be outside sweating, exercising and having fun! We have to remember to HYDRATE....add coconut water to your diet and keep your system well balanced.
