Wellness Tip: Coconut water

The Memorial Hospital

Coconut water is an excellent way to rehydrate and replenish after strenuous exercise. With less sugar than common sports drinks and fruit juices, coconut water contains a balance of carbohydrates and electrolytes.

It is a nutritious and relatively low-calorie way to add potassium to your diet. Yes, good old-fashioned water is always important, but it is wise to replenish electrolytes after extended exercise. If you are looking to try something new, coconut water provides a sweet, nutty flavor and can be purchased at most grocery stores.
