Coconut water is a healthy and great tasting beverage (if you find the right one). It is a great way to naturally hydrate… containing five essential electrolytes that your body craves: Potassium (more than bananas), Sodium, Magnesium, Calcium and Phosphorus. Potassium and Magnesium aid in muscle function, while Calcium and Phosphorus are important for bone strength. Coconut water is also very low in sugar, roughly 3 times less than the average sports drink.
The best tasting coconut juice comes from tropical areas, with young coconuts from Thailand yielding the highest rated brands. We compared every brand we could find, including: Vita Coco, ONE, Zico, Coco Libre, Naked, Blue Monkey, and (the 3 best rated listed above) Taste Nirvana, c2o, and Amy & Brian. Some brands add sugar and other elements to make their inferior product taste better (which simply doesn’t). Stick with one of the top three rated above.
