Okso I am suppose to be blogging about Exercise tubing todaybut last night I was bouncing around on-line and came across this new product that is out in the stores. I guess it is not new to nature, but it is new to me. What is it?
Coconut Waternot Coconut Juice or milkbut the water from a not so ripe coconut. It is suppose to be very hydrating and good for you. I am thinking Hang-over cure and wrinkles gone kind of hydration. since they are both brought on by dehydration...right?
After reading about the Coconut water, all I wanted to do is jump in my car and run to the whole food market to grab somebut I have so far refrained myself from doing so. But, I guarantee youI will have some coconut water running through my veins before the day ends!
Here is few things I learned about this water...
1. Coconut Water is excellent for replacing lost electrolytes from exercise or illness.
2. Coconut Water is an all-natural sports/energy drink.
3. Coconut Water is a natural isotonic beverage – contains a similar level of electrolytes found in human blood.
4. Coconut Water may help promote smoother more hydrated skin.
5. Coconut Water is non-allergenic.
6. Coconut Water is rich in potassium. Potassium helps regulate blood pressure and heart function.
7. Coconut Water is an effective oral rehydration medium and keeps the body cool.
8. That Madonnayes you heard right Madonna is crazy for Coconut Water.
9. Matthew McConaughey may be investing in this so called Coconut water.
10. Last but not leastI convinced that this Coconut water might be on to something...smile!
