Product Review - Real Coconut Water

Taste of Nirvana
Coconut Water
Healthified Gatorade as I like to call it; coconut water is the newest craze in the health/sports world. So what's the scoop? Coconut water contains 5 essential electrolytes: potassium,magnesium, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus. These nutrients are key players in rehydrating our tired and dehydrated bodies during and after sweaty, endurance work. An athlete will appreciate the prevention of muscle cramping and aid in recovery. You typically can find the same electrolytes in your commercial sports drinks as well as added sugars, dyes, and ingredients.....YUM!
Some other brands include: Zico, O.N.E.
The flavor of the water is....different. Sometimes I enjoy straight up and other times I find it to be a tasty addition to my protein/fruit smoothies after a sweaty bout of exercise.
Price varies: around 1-3 dollars/drink
