Here are a few more reasons why you need to drink up:
- Thirst Quencher: Any way you slice it, coconut water makes a refreshing drink to sip on a hot day or after a workout.
- A Smarter Choice: The sugars in real coconut water are all-natural, making it a better choice than sugary fruit juice, sports drinks or soda.
- Tried and True: Coconut water has been enjoyed as a drink and used therapeutically in many regions of the world for centuries.
- More Bang for Your Buck: When you buy the whole coconut you get two treats in one: the water and the meat.
