Coconut water is an excellent sports drink ― for light exercise

Coconut water is an excellent sports drink ― for light exercise
A new analysis of coconut water was reported during the 244th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).  Many people are aware that coconut water is a good source of electrolytes.  The American diet consists of high amount of sodium and not enough potassium.  Drinking coconut water can restore the balance, by replenishing much needed potassium lost from exercise and necessary for recovery and muscle cramp reduction. What other foods/drinks do you consume that provide body with electrolytes and help to recover after exercising?

For additional information please visit American Chemical Society.

  1. After I exercise, I would drink a glass of homemade fruit juice and eat a small meal consisting of protein and carbohydrate.
