Does coconut water have more electrolytes than water?
I recently lived out an unexpected experience of dehydration, being so certain I was equipped to handle the high humidity in South Florida as summer moved in to stay, my water bottle close at hand. Reality has a different version of the story as long work hours in the sun with sweat pouring down my face day after day of projects... A weak step, and nausea that crept in making the next few days challenging.
I discovered regular water may not be enough alone, as minerals lost must be replenished to rebalance, coconut water was the perfect non chemical /non color/non preservative option.
It includes a natural way to replenish potassium, magnesium, sodium and calcium. Two studies found coconut water restored hydration after exercise better than water and equal to high-electrolyte sports beverages.
Good to know and my body thanks the education process that meant a couple days in bed to figure out the full picture.
