DYK that coconut water (or "juice") may just be the ultimate sports drink! It is a antioxidant beverage that contains naturally occurring electrolytes (such as potassium, phosphorus, calcium & magnesium). In fact, in it's 11.2 oz serving it has more potassium than a banana (that's approximately 15 times the amount found in sports drinks), only about 60 calories (14g from sugar) and no artificial ingredients.
How about NYD a couple of things:
#1 Try it out! O.N.E., Vita Coco & Zico are some of the top brands. Jeri's been using them in her smoothies... yum!
#2 Check it out! I found soooo much interesting info on this amazing drink. With just a little bit of googling I found out it is also known as the "fluid of life" due to its similar properties to our own blood plasma. In fact, it can be used in the pinch for emergency plasma transfusions... I know, crazy huh? It is so intriguing that both Coca Cola & Madonna have invested in it... true. =0)
