Coo Coo for Coconut Water

If it wasn’t for coconut water I don’t think I would’ve made it through so many years of rigorous sports activities competitions, and years of cutting weight for wrestling. Coconut water is one of the things that I feel like now that I know about it and how it has made me able to compete at a high level of competition after being so dragged down with intense physical activity and workouts. As we all know hydration is an important factor in maintaining a competitive and high level of performance in your sport of trade. Electrolytes as well play a key role in maintaining high levels of energy. Coconut water for many reasons, but mostly its ability to re hydrate and putting electrolytes back into your body.

This super drink, being both low in calories, as well as fat and cholesterol free, is also loaded with potassium, about as much as four bananas, and is able to re hydrate the consumer incredibly quick. With many health benefits coconut water earns the right to be called a super food. None as natures sports drinks it is both better for you, and is 100% natural as compared to Gatorade, Powerade, or other sports drinks that have many unnatural, and is sometimes unhealthy, and not beneficial to the consumer.

Coconut water a naturallyrefreshing drink, not to be confused with coconut milk, or coconut oil, a clear and easily digestible carbohydrate loaded drink. It is a clear substance loaded with natural sugar and carbohydrates. It is taken from young green coconuts, and is loaded with health benefits you can’t get from any sport drink. Coconut water is one of my favorite drinks for re hydrating, as well as getting the energy I need to compete at the level of competition I am only capable of if I am alright to go physically. Coconut water has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than a sports drink. Ounce per ounce, most unflavored coconut water contains 5.45 calories, 1.3 grams sugar, 61 milligrams (mg) of potassium, and 5.45 mg of sodium compared to Gatorade, which has 6.25 calories, 1.75 grams of sugar, 3.75 mg of potassium, and 13.75 mg of sodium.

Not only do I love it, but some people, including professional tennis player John Isner who swears by it. Isner says it keeps him energized and on his feet. Isner was part of an 11 hour Wimbledon match that he ended up winning. Isner stated,   “It is super hydrating and has kept me going in long matches and prevented me from cramping even in the hottest and most humid conditions.”
