Have you ever tried the slightly sweet water from inside a green coconut? The particular taste is very refreshing. Not practical in itself to drink but very exotic if you picture yourself on a tropical beach...
Now thanks to O.N.E drinks, it has been packaged into tetra pack (close to where the coconuts are harvested, capturing the fresh, healthy goodness) and ready for pick up in your local supermarket. Available in Spinney's.
Coconut water is one of the best ways to rehydrate. It has been shown to be more effective than plain water for hydrating. It contains electrolytes, such as Potassium, some naturally sugar and is free of corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, flavorings or colorings. Coconut water is a natural source of hydration, with much lower calories then many other fruit juices.
A great "sport drink", it helps replace fluids and electrolytes regularly to help avoid headaches, muscle cramping, and fatigue. It is a nutritional powerhouse! Now a staple food on my shopping list.
"But there is even something more special about O.N.E. Coconut Water – its history. For millennia people living in the tropics have used coconut water for a variety of purposes – including as an energy drink and a rehydration aid. Coconut water has been directly injected into the bloodstream for transfusions in wartime emergencies. Its not surprising that the coconut palm is known as the Tree of Life in many cultures, and celebrated for its magical, life enhancing qualities." - www.onedrinks.com/one-coconut-water-benefits
