Thanks to my hiking partner and fellow detoxer Kelly, my new post hike treat (and obsession) is a fresh, ice cold coconut water with lime. Drinking coconut water from the source is a wonderful healthy habit to adopt. Coconut water is a natural “electrolyte” because it contains high amount so potassium. But it’s benefits don’t stop there. All natural coconut water (if you purchase it in the store, make sure the read the labels to be sure there’s nothing added) contains around 46 calories per cup, has 10 grams of natural sugar (energy) and is fat free. It also contains multiple vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that are necessary for optimal health. Maintaining your electrolyte levels can help reduce fatigue, stress and help maintain muscle relaxation. People all over the world enjoy coconut water for its multiple benefits and sweet taste. So….as the song says – “Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up.” Your body will thank you. Cheers to your health!
