The Health Benefits of Coconut Water

It Started With a Hangover: Yes, that’s right, I said a hangover! There are beliefs out there that massage therapists are vegetarians, do yoga daily, meditate daily, don’t smoke or drink, don’t eat sugar. You get the picture.

Some of that is true. And a lot of that is true for me. However, I do like red wine. I actually love red wine. On an occasion where my love for it surpassed the need to stop drinking it, I woke up tired, headachy and dehydrated.

I went to my corner Walgreens looking for something that would quench a thirst like I had been in the Sahara desert for a month. I spotted the coconut water. I had read about it, heard some buzz about it and I bought one.

I was reborn! It was a miracle! I did some research on coconut water. Here’s what the Zico Coconut water website said – “ZICO is loaded with 5 electrolytes: sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium and phosphorus. These work together to support your body with what it needs to stay hydrated and to help it perform at its best. ZICO contains as much potassium as a banana, which helps prevent cramping. Plus, ZICO is gluten-free, lactose-free and dairy-free.”

Whether you drink ZICO before a big meeting or after a hard workout, ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water is full of natural Oomph—and it’s all from coconuts. And we think that whoops major butt.

Works for me! I should contact Zico and tell them to add – “works for hangovers” to their list.

I like all different brands and use coconut water in my green smoothies sometimes. I reach for it when I feel tired instead of drinking coffee. Give it a try when you need some “natural Ooomph” in your day.
