The benefits of coconut water

By Instructor Training Program student Justin
As CrossFit athletes, staying hydrated is one of the most important things for recovery, relieving muscle soreness, and good health in general. But did you know that when you’re thirsty DURING the workout, it’s too late to hydrate yourself?
Drink plenty of fluids well in advance of working out, and rehydrate after your workouts. It’s okay to drink water during your workout too, but be honest with yourself. Are you thirsty, or just taking a rest break? 🙂
Coconut water is natural sports drink. It contains easily digested carbohydrates in the form of natural sugars and electrolytes.
Not to be confused with coconut milk, coconut water is the clear liquid in the fruit’s center that is tapped from young, green coconuts. Because of its potassium and calcium properties, it’s an excellent way to rehydrate the body. One eight-ounce serving has more potassium than a large banana.
Coconut water is low in sugar & naturally fat & cholesterol free. It’s naturally refreshing and has a sweet, nutty taste. Though not everyone loves it, it’s worth a try if you’re addicted to sugary sports drinks & need a healthier option.
