Did you know that coconut water has 15 times more potassium than that found in sport drinks? It's also naturally loaded with the five key electrolytes: potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, sodium and calcium. It's what you need to stay hydrated. On a diet? No sweat! Vita Coco is also fat and cholesterol free.
Sure, you may not be a marathon runner, a football player or Tour de France winner, but your every day life is hectic enough—you should be hydrated while you live it. Go ahead, get hydrated and remember that life is a sport!
Here is a list of other things coconut water can do for you:
Helps keep the body cool and at the proper temperature.

Helps carry nutrients and oxygen to cells and boosts poor circulation.
Translation: See, everyone needs a boost from time to time.
Regulates the function of the intestine, helping promote smoother skin.
Translation: Doing something good for your insides can make you prettier outside! But you still need to wash your face properly, exfoliate and moisturize (don’t forget the SPF).
Helps replenish your body's fluids after exercising.
Translation: Your body needs plenty of fluids after the gym. Fluids free of barley and hops. Go figure.
Helps detoxify your body and boost your immune system.
Translation: Keeps your immune system tough. Grr. And, yells at viruses to back off. "Back off viruses!"
Helps ease stomach pains.
Translation: Calms your stomach, unlike your in-laws' chili cookoff.
