Does Coconut Water Really Help Athletes?
You don’t have to seek out a health food store to get your hands on this sweet H2O. Coconut water is all the rage, and you can now find this popular post-workout drink at local gyms, yoga studies and even on the shelves of regular grocery stores. But is coconut water just the latest energy drink that marketers have decided to run with? Or does it live up to its reputation as nature’s perfectly balanced sports drink?
With celebrities like Rihanna promoting the popular coconut water brand Vita Coco, variations of coconut water have been filling shelves across America. Even in the UK, it’s actually the fastest growing category of non-alcoholic beverages and the popularity of coconut water is rapidly spreading across Europe.
