Benefits of Vita Coco Water

Today we had our first tasted of Vita Coco.  We are now big fans!  Here is a run down of all the benefits of drinking this great drink:

Coconut water has long been revered as a health drink. It is loaded with the five essential electrolytes that athletes need-- including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous. If you drink prior to a race or athletic activity, you are not likely to suffer from hyponatremia or dehydration.
It's also naturally fat free. And one 11 oz serving has double the potassium of a banana and 15 times the amount of potassium that the top selling sports drink- about 700mg of potassium. The electrolytes help keep the body cool, boost poor circulation, replenish the fluids you lose during exercise. It is known to also aid in the detoxification process while boosting your immune system.
It is cholesterol free and can soothe an upset stomach and help promote weight loss. On a side note, it is also known as a great hangover cure due to the fact that it re-hydrates so well.  There are no added artificial sweeteners or added refined sugar of any kind.


  1. I tried Vita Coco about 6 months ago, and I've been drinking it every day since then!
    It tastes great and is so good for you. I can really tell the difference in my hydration when I drink this instead of gatorade. Plus it has less sugar in it!

  2. Vita Coco is my favorite drink of all time. Nutritious, delicious, and all around a good investment.

  3. Glad you all like it. We have our placed stalked with it!
