Have you discovered the benefits of green coconut water as the new rage in fruit drinks? Yes it’s true, coconut water is quickly becoming the new sports drink for health conscious men and women.

There are several benefits of drinking green coconut water, the quickly new rage health drink for health conscious people. Could it replace Gatorade? There’s a real good chance it could become the new sports drink of the decade. Many athletes and celebrities swear by its benefits.

Instead of down the conventional sports drinks that are high in fructose corn syrup and coloring, many people are going for the all natural, no preservatives added, coconut water. It is called “green” because the water comes from coconuts still not ripe.

If you examine the contents label of most sports drinks, you’ll see that there are 16 grams of sugar in it. Then you look a bit more closely, and you discover there are three (3) servings in the bottle. Therefore, you have downed a whole load of sugar in one drink. Not so with green coconut water. So one huge benefit you get from this drink is little to no sugar.

Another benefit of coconut water is its extremely hydrating properties. It is much more hydrating than most sports drinks. People in other countries and Central America have been reaping the benefits of coconut water for years. Hydration is important for active people to keep them from getting cramps.

Yet still another benefit of coconut water is its high potassium content. You can eat bananas for potassium, but they have quite a bit of sugar. Coconut water is high in potassium without the high sugar content. Potassium is one of the minerals you sometimes don’t get enough of because you skip your vegetables or eat veggies with little food value to them.

Some of the claims is that coconut water has more potassium than a banana, and more electrolytes than most sports drinks. It is also a rich source of magnesium, too.

Further, you can buy green coconut water with no preservatives, too. It is an all natural drink that is healthy, nearly sugar free and full of energy giving properties.

For all this, where can you find a coconut tree with green coconuts on it? Well, you no longer have to go out of the country to find them. Most supermarkets are now stocking these delightfully healthy drinks.

Nutritionists are giving this new coconut water a high rating. They are very much in favor of the nutritional values that the sports drink brings to the general public. Currently, you can find the new drink online for around $12 to 22 for a pack of 12. It is recommended that you drink one bottle per day, especially after a good workout.

Yes, the benefits of green coconut water as a new rage in health drinks are many and one you need to try soon. The benefits far outweigh the slightly high price for the drink; however, you get far more nutrition from one bottle of this water as compared to most energy drinks you can buy. As always, eat healthy my friends. By: Howard Coffey
