Fitness Tip: Hydrate With Coconut Water

Coconut water is a healthy alternative to sugary sports drinks

“Looking for an alternative to sports drinks to get you through your workout? Try coconut water. For every hour of exercise, we lose an average of 4 cups of water, so it’s very important to replenish these lost fluids.

Although sports drinks can be an easy and effective way to stay hydrated and give you that extra energy boost, many contain lots of sugars that you don’t always need. Coconut water contains a lot less sugar and can be just as effective. But whether you choose coconut water, regular water, or another drink, the most important thing is just to rehydrate yourself immediately after any workout, so drink up!”
