Gatorade VS Coconut Water

Gatorade is a drink used to replenish electrolytes and potassium when people exert themselves and dehydrate.  When the weather is extremely hot or doing intense exercise the body needs to rehydrate and replenish minerals that get lost.  It is often used when someone has diarrhea.  Have you noticed the nutritional label on Gatorade?  It is loaded with sugar, blue & red dye, there is
nothing natural about it.  It does work, but how about using Coconut water next time?  It is all natural, there is nothing added but the water from a young, tender, green coconut.  It has more potassium, electrolytes and it has a high concentration of amino acids, enzymes, minerals such as calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, zinc and a good source of B complex vitamins.
If you feel light headed after a workout, reach for a cup of Coconut water, you will feel the difference immediately.

When people go through Chemotherapy the doctors recommend patients to keep well hydrated, Coconut water is the best remedy. Next time you reach for the Gatorade, try Coconut water instead. Serve it well chilled or with ice.
