We all know that it is extremely important to stay hydrated, but what most people don’t realize is how easy it is to become dehydrated. Chronic dehydration can be very dangerous and can be a main contributor to conditions like urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and seizures.
Here Are 3 Signs You May Be Dehydrated:
- Your urine is not clear.
- You are lightheaded or have brain fog.
- Your skin and/or eyes are dry
Nutritionist Tip: Have you heard of the skin pinch test? Simply pinch a small patch of skin on the back of your hand. If it doesn’t go immediately back into place when you release it, you are likely dehydrated.
Drinking more water is the key to fixing this issue. However, a supreme source of hydration is available, especially for those who may not love the taste of plain water. Coconut water simply outshines regular water.
Coconut water is the liquid found inside mature or young coconuts (also known as green coconut). Much different than its creamy cousin coconut milk, this clear liquid gold is a nutritional powerhouse full of vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants. Coconut water may be just what you need to help replenish, rehydrate, and revamp your health journey.
Truly 100% Raw Coconut Water
Not all coconut water is created equal. Like our juices and smoothies, this coconut water is truly raw, meaning it has never been heated or high-pressure processed. Other companies heat and sweeten their coconut water with added sugars or artificial sweeteners, which removes key nutrients and destroys the natural taste. The exceptional flavor and nutritional integrity of truly raw coconut water are exactly the same as when you crack open a fresh coconut.
The Health Benefits of Coconut Water
Loaded with Nutrients And Minerals
There are many vital nutrients and minerals in this healthy drink—potassium, magnesium, chloride, and calcium, to name a few.
Potassium is an essential mineral that helps promote muscle function and heart health. A recent study showed potassium deficiency is a chronic issue among Americans today, which can lead to heart issues, high blood pressure, poor digestion, and even hinder weight loss goals.
Magnesium is another mineral found in coconut water, which helps distribute potassium and calcium to your muscles, giving your body a boost of energy, making it an excellent tool to enhance athletic performance.
In just one cup of coconut water, there are antioxidants that can remove free radicals from the body. Free radicals can damage cells and cause aging.
When you work out, your body sweats out electrolytes. Replenishing them naturally prevents dehydration. Coconut water hydration is supreme above all because it naturally rehydrates and replenishes the body without the processed junk commonly found in many electrolyte and sports drinks.
Aside from electrolyte content, coconut water consists of healthy fats and carbohydrates to help support you both pre and post-workout. (For a workout-friendly cleanse, try our protein cleanse)
Clearer Smoother Skin
While there is no magic potion for a perfect complexion, drinking coconut water can promote clearer, smoother skin.
The abundant antioxidants and electrolytes in raw coconut water can increase collagen production, slow aging, and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Coconut water also contains high levels of vitamin C, which encourages collagen production as we age .
Eating a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and carbs combined with coconut water hydration can work magic for your skin.
Truly Natural Sugar
The sugar found in this sweet drink is truly natural. Its high potassium content ensures that sugar will enter the bloodstream much slower than refined sugar, making you less likely to experience low glucose levels or high blood sugar spikes.
The secret to supreme hydration lies within the power of coconut water. It’s more than a tasty beverage. It’s your daily dose of essential nutrients and electrolyte replenishment.
