After Workout Energizer: Coconut Water- Guest Post by Susie R.
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN WATER AFTER YOUR WORKOUT TO GET YOU RE-ENERGIZED? TRY Coconut Water! COCONUT WATER is the clear liquid found inside the fruit. It has a tangy nutty flavor and none of the fat found in coconut milk. Coconut is great to consume after a workout because in just 11 ounces contains 670 milligrams of potassium-way more than a sports drink and even a banana! Potassium is an important mineral that works closely with sodium to maintain water balance and help trigger muscles to contract and relax optimally. When you sweat you lose a lot of minerals and electrolytes. Coconut water is packed with potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus. These electrolytes are critical for proper recovery! Also helping to aid in recovery coconut water contains the things that your body typically uses during the workout: sugars, electrolytes, and water! Best of all it’s ALL NATURAL! Coconut water can be found now in most grocery and health food stores. Its best to look for one that contains no added sugars besides those found naturally occurring in the drink. The Ingredients should read-100% coconut water, that’s it! NOTE: We are thrilled to have Susie R., a holistic health coach, athlete, wellness junkie and “real-food” activist provide this guest post on the power of coconut water.
