Top 10 Coconut Water Nutrition Facts

Share article:

There has been a lot of hype around coconut water lately. Yet, this all natural beverage has been enjoyed by people around the world for thousands of years.

What is it that sets coconut water apart from other beverages on the market today?

Read on to learn more about the nutrition facts and benefits of coconut water.

1. Coconut water is rich in essential electrolytes.
Electrolytes are electrically charged ions that help your cells maintain and transmit voltages and impulses to and from other cells. Electrolytes play a vital role in your body, especially in maintaining proper functionality of your nerves, heart, and other muscles.

The electrolytes present in your body include:

  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Chloride
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Phosphate
  • Bicarbonate
  • Sulfate

Of these electrolytes, coconut water contains about 600 mg of potassium (17 percent of your daily value) per serving. That’s more than a banana.

Coconut water is also rich in:

  • Magnesium, 60 mg per serving or 15 percent of your daily value
  • Sodium, 252 mg per serving or 11 percent of your daily value
  • Calcium, 58 mg per serving or 6 percent of your daily value

But if these electrolytes are already in your body, why would you need to ingest more?

Every time you sweat or lose a lot of fluids due to sickness, you also lose important electrolytes, especially potassium and sodium. In order to repair your body, you need to replenish your electrolyte levels with foods and drinks that are rich in electrolytes.

2. Coconut water contains zero additives.
Coconut water is an all natural beverage that comes from its source, a young, green coconut. That said, coconut water’s one and only ingredient is coconut water, which means its additive-free.

Very few beverages on the market today can say that. Most juice blends, sodas, and sports drinks contain huge amounts of refined sugars, artificial colors, preservatives and high fructose corn syrup blends.

3. Coconut water is fat-free and low in calories.
Fat-free coconut water contains a mere 46 calories per serving and zero grams of fat and zero grams of trans fat.

Meanwhile, most sports drinks and sodas contain harmful trans fats that should and can easily be avoided.

4. Coconut water is cholesterol-free.
As it contains no fat or trans fat, coconut water also contains zero cholesterol. Many sodas and sports drinks can contain between 15 mg and 30 mg (5-10% of your daily value) of cholesterol per serving.

5. Coconut water contains all natural sugar.
Coconut water contains about 6 g of sugar per serving. However, the sugar in coconut water is all natural fruit sugar, not refined sugar that you find in highly processed foods and drinks.

6. Coconut water is rich in vitamins.
The vitamins in coconut water help you maintain healthy cellular function, boost your immunity and promote your metabolism.

The essential vitamins in coconut water include:

Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps boost immunity. Each serving of coconut water contains about 5.8 mg of vitamin C, which is about 10 percent of your daily value.

B Vitamins
Coconut water contains vitamin B6, Riboflavin (B2), Thiamin (B1) and Folate (B9). These B vitamins work together to breakdown foods and create energy by boosting metabolism.

B vitamins also have other important roles in your body. For instance, B6 helps your body produce amino acids needed to build protein. B6 also promotes metabolism and the creation of neurotransmitters.

In addition, Riboflavin assists in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, Thiamin maintains healthy nervous and circulatory systems, and Folate promotes healthy mental function and brain development, especially in fetuses.

7. Coconut water is a natural diuretic.
As a diuretic, coconut water increases urine flow.

8. Coconut water contains a large amount of dietary fiber.
Dietary fiber helps you digest food, and it also shortens waste transit time through the intestinal tract. Like a diuretic, dietary fiber helps to rid your body of harmful toxins.

Coconut water contains about 3 g of dietary fiber oer serving, which is about 11% of your daily value.

9. Coconut water contains protein.
Protein is absolutely necessary for the growth and repair of your muscles, bones, hair, skin, and eyes. Protein is also essential for digestion and the creation of antibodies.

Coconut water provides you with about 2 g of protein per serving, which makes up about 4% of your daily value.

10. Coconut water is safe to drink for all ages.
Because coconut water is all natural, fat-free, and low in sugars and calories while being rich in essential electrolytes and vitamins, it’s safe for almost anyone to drink.

    Coconut water contains all natural sugar.
    This sounds great, nothing odd. Real sugar with the fiber sounds really balanced.A natural product.

  2. Melissa says:

    My SIL is Hawaiian and told me that they are able to use coconut water for blood transfusions. Here is something I found that explains it better.
    Coconut water can’t actually replace blood plasma; chemical analysis indicates it’s closer in makeup to intracellular fluid. It’s usually sterile, and when mixed with plasma it behaves like saline solution. It’s got fewer electrolytes in it than our bodies are used to and too much potassium, so it’s not an ideal rehydration fluid. But it works in a pinch.
    Campbell-Falck, Darilyn et al. “The Intravenous Use of Coconut Water” American Journal of Emergency Medicine 18.1 (2000): 108-111.
    “Coconut water as intravenous infusion” British Medical Journal (28 August, 1965): 525.

  3. Abby says:

    I am wondering where all of these coconuts that give us this coconut water come from? I know each coconut holds a decent amount of water, but it seems very time intensive to extract all of that water. Is all of this coconut water directly from coconuts or is some of it artificially produced?

  4. Serena says:

    I think this sounds like a healthy, nutritious alternative to other waters now on the market. One question I have though is since there are various flavors what is used for those flavorings since it says the one and only ingredient is coconut water?

  5. Serena says:

    Right after I had heard that about transfusions, the TV show “Off the Map” had the doctors using coconut water in an emergency situation! Interesting!

  6. Jenny says:

    Our family have always enjoy the taste of coconut water, and not i dont mean the overly sweeten can stuff, but the actual stuff the one from matures coconuts. the taste of it is soo sweet and refreshing it’s unbelievable but i have never know that it had so many benefits! so i am curious to know what is there a difference between the actual stuff and your product?

  7. Amber Waltz says:

    I have been drinking coconut water for a little over a year now, and I cannot emphasize enough how much I have enjoyed it. My doctor recommended I drink coconut water daily since I was having frequent cramping in my legs. He said that the potassium that is in the water would help alleviate some of the cramping. The coconut water has worked and I am so relieved to be able to have a solution for the pain without taking any type of medication. The health benefits of coconut water are amazing and the taste is fantastic too!

  8. Michael Mushlin says:

    I just found the benefits of coconut water and I am very impressed with this product. It could be a serious revolution in health in a great tasting product.

  9. Anne M. says:

    I just recently learned of all the benefits of coconut products. I started using coconut oil when I cook, and about a month ago, tried my first coconut water. Besides tasting good, it has so many different vitamins, minerals, and health benefits. I am so glad it is becoming more available in stores

  10. rebecca williams says:

    I never heard of conconut water. Very interesting. I wouldn’t have guessed that coconut water contains protein, my family doesn’t seem to get enough in our diets. I’d like to try this product out. At 46 calories per serving and zero grams of fat and zero grams of trans fat, I will be looking up where I can buy this!

  11. Laura Emerson says:

    I have to admit that I have only heard a little about coconut water but I never realized how many benefits there were to drinking it. I live in the South where it is always hot and humid. We drink a lot of water to help keep refreshed and rehydrate. It gets kind of boring though and you feel like something sweet but not too sweet. Coconut water sounds so much better than water and I love how it helps to replenish electrolytes that we lose.

  12. Len Bareman says:

    I’ll try it! Coconut water is new to me, but it sounds promising.

  13. Pat says:

    Wow, I didn’t know coconut water had do much nutrition. Never really thought about it actually! Can’t wait to get the coupon so I can give it a try!

  14. Patti K says:

    I’ve always like coconut water a lot. I never realized it had such health benefits.I definately didn’t realize there was fiber in it, I had always attributed the intestinal effects to the sugar content. Well anyway, I always feel healthier when I have had some and I make sure to drink it as often as possible. I haven’t tried this brand yet, but would love to try it.

  15. Rebecca London says:

    I was in the airport waiting for a flight when I read an article about coconut water - I really wanted to try it. Imagine my surprise when I went into one of the airport vendors and saw a bottle of coconut water! I was very surprised by the high (30+) carbohydrate count and realized it was because there was added sugar, bummer. I look forward to trying Phenom as it only has 11 carbs per serving.

  16. christina says:

    I can’t wait to try this product. I do not drink milk, so its nice to find another drink that has calcium, and a ton more nutrients in it than milk!

  17. Nana says:

    “coconut water is all natural, fat-free, and low in sugars and calories …”

    And it’s also anti-fungal. As a lactose-intolerant person with candida overgrowth, I’ve been using coconut products to prepare everything from breakfast cereal to afternoon smoothies for the last few weeks and have already seen fewer yeast symptoms. Also - it tastes so good!

  18. Sheri says:

    I drank coconut water when I was having stomach pains (from acid reflux I found out later) and it was really soothing. I now buy it whenever I feel tummy troubles come on.

  19. Millisa T. says:

    What an amazing product that will help to get the fiber that is needed. Getting fiber in the fast paced life is so hard and can’t wait to try this!

    In the past I have tried unrefinded coconut oil to help with getting the nutrition I needed that I wasn’t getting. This Coconut water will help that to be even easier?

  20. Paige says:

    I think that not the most important thing about coconut milk is the “No additives”
    I cant tell you how hard it is to find a drink that doesnt have SOMETHING in it that just shouldnt be there!
    Im very excited to try this. Ive been searching for something other than normal water to help my workouts really mean something!
    My husband could benefit from this as well. He works in a factory that has no air conditioning in the heat of the summer! We are always trying something new to keep him hydrated and help him replenish what he loses while sweating! 12 hour shifts arent fun- I really hope this is the drink weve been looking for!

  21. Renada says:

    Coconut water is a great drink. It cools you down and taste great when its cold.. It’s also great to read about the other benefit you get from drinking it..

  22. Cyndi says:

    I love the idea that something natural and tastes great does a multitude of things for us-
    fiber, natural sugar, natural diruretic, and has protein- what’s not to love. Sign me up and
    I’ll build it into our daily regime. Thanks for sharing

  23. Candace Elmore says:

    I’ve never heard of coconut water, but it sounds like a promising addition to my diet. I’d love to try it.

  24. Monique J. says:

    Hmm, interested. I’ve never tried coconut water before

  25. Becca says:

    I never new coconut water could be used for so many different health problems. I am a real estate photographer and am always out in the hot sun and I get dehydrated so bad when I come home all I want to do is go straight to bed. I have been looking for something that would help keep me hydrated and healthy through the entire year as it is normally hot most of the year. I look forward to trying it out this weekend and I will let you all know how I come out. Thank you so much for all this great info you have put together for us.

  26. Tina C says:

    I have heard a lot about coconut water being a natural diuretic and high in dietary fiber. I have used it during vacation when I’ve had a hard time using the bathroom and it definitely helps. It keeps me regular even when my body is in shock from change. Plus it tastes good so it’s always pleasant to drink.

  27. Mavis says:

    My friend has been using coconut oil for baking and as a spread on bread for at least a year now. She’s been raving about the benefits of it. Then recently a customer came to my counter with an unusual looking beverage container. I asked about it and she said she was drinking coconut water. I am definitely interested in trying this for myself.

  28. stacey says:

    I’m trying to change my unhealthy lifestyle, as 40 is just around the corner. I’m learning
    about some really cool foods that are healthy and acutally tastes good. Coconut water has never been in my diet, but it sounds like it needs to be. I’m looking forward to trying it.

  29. cn look says:

    I have never drank coconut water before, with all the good nutrition information provided here, I want to give it a try.

  30. Lisa says:

    I definately want to give this product a try. I want to make smoothies with Phenom Coconut Water. Got some great smoothie recipes from a friend and she uses coconut water to make her smoothies.

  31. Lisa says:

    I didn’t realize coconut water provided that many benefits! Electrolytes, protein, vitamins, fiber, and low in calorie.This information has been quite educational. I recall drinking it a long time ago. I will definitely have to try this again and start drinking it on a regular basis. I could really use the additional health benefits from this drink.

  32. Cassie says:

    As a nurse, I understand the importance of replenishing nutrients and electrolytes to help keep everything in balance. It’s wonderful to know there’s something out there with so many natural ingredients to keep our bodies replenished and ready to go! =D

  33. jaclyn a. says:

    I have not heard of coconut water before…This does seem very interesting. I am curious to know if all of the types taste like coconut. I hope I like the taste. I think the best thing about the product will be all of the B vitamins! anything that helps with energy and metabolism has to be great! and for only 46 calories a serving…its worth a try!

  34. adrian castillo says:


  35. manny says:

    in case of an emergency,whn no I/V fliuds r available,coconut water can be directly put I/v to rehydrate a person.
    nothing in the world can be put directly in our blood like this!

  36. Michelle says:

    Wow! I absolutely love coconut and all the things it flavors. I have honestly never heard of coconut water until today. I am looking forward to finding a place to try it - and without all the additives! I’m glad somebody posted before this that they had found some, but it had added sugar in it. I will be on the look out for the all natural stuff - the way it was meant to be!

    Also, does anyone know if it is expensive to buy? Or can someone on a budget afford it? It sounds too amazing to pass up!

  37. ashley says:

    Great i have tummy problem cant wait to see if it helps me

  38. Clay Rose says:

    I will try this for sure. Who knew something was as healthy or healthier that water! Awesome info. Thanks!

  39. wendie says:

    love coconut water :)

  40. bill says:

    coconut water is great for replenishing after marathons

  41. Danielle says:

    I like the fact that Coconut Water has all natural sugar and is safe for all ages, something I can feel safe giving it to my daughter.

  42. Jenna says:

    I have a digestive disease and recently started drinking coconut water on a weekly basis and I am feeling so much better lately! It really does help keep your digestion going with it’s high fiber content and all the nutrients. I love mixing it in the blender with ice, pineapple juice and protein powder for a meal replacement shake. I had no idea it contained so much potassium. Now I have even more reason to drink it! :) Thank you for a concise list of the benefits of coconut water!

  43. Wendy says:

    I like to use coconut water in my recipes, adds flavor plus it’s healthy.

  44. K.D. says:

    I never knew how many benefits coconut water had. I love to eat and drink healthy foods so I really appreciate the company effort to supply all of us with this wonderful concoction! I do agree with the coconut water helping the acid reflux, it also seems to help when I have a sore throat. Are there any skin benefits to consuming coconut water? Is GNC the only place I can physically go to purchase phenom? Thanks again!

  45. Julie says:

    my dad used to buy the coconut and manually dig a hole to let us drink it. we dont do it anymore though since it’s such a hassle. But i do know that the reason why he made us drink it was because it was beneficial to our body and health just like what it was listed above.

  46. Cecile says:

    I just heard about coconut water and have undiagnosed medical problems. i am willing to try anything that would help my symptoms naturally rather than taking medication. my question is whether the coconut water that is sold is pure coconut water or should I but fresh coconuts instead?

  47. Avriel says:

    I love it. Old Chinese myth that drinking too much coconut makes your knees weak. Rubbish!

  48. Emily says:

    One of the things I’m most surprised to read about is that it contains 3g of fiber per serving. I’m always interested in different ways to incorporate more fiber in my diet. An added bonus is that I love anything coconut flavored! I’m looking forward to trying this.

  49. Sara says:

    I had no idea that coconut water had fiber in it. It tastes so good and it’s good for my digestion. I can’t wait to try all the flavors!

  50. Dorothy says:

    Looks like so many positive benefits who would have known it could help with yeast. Ive always loved the smell of coconut now cant wait to try the drink!

  51. Sue says:

    Coconut water is the best natural nutritional beverage. I can’t wait to try this product.

  52. Michelle says:

    Fascinating. I had no idea that coconut water had so many benefits. My 8 year old daughter has been curious about coconuts. Now I am too. I plan to try this product soon and also will do more research. Amazing that this isn’t more widely known.

  53. Barbara says:

    No more struggling to open up a real coconut! I’ve completely given up drinking carbonated beverages, and look forward to trying this.

  54. Robert says:

    I’ve always been a fan of coconut water and I am very interested in the taste of this brand.

  55. Michelle says:

    I love the way coconut water tastes and that it is low calorie. I didn’t know it was rich in fiber, has lots of vitamins, and electrolytes. I can’t wait to try the flavored kinds.

  56. Susy martin says:

    I currently drink coconut milk. I would love to try out the water. Sounds really healthy. My stomache is very sensitive to dairy and soy. But the coconut is a great alternative!

  57. Jay says:

    I always thought that coconut was fattening. I’ve always loved the taste! So glad to hear that it is healthy.

  58. Melanie says:

    After reading more about the coconut water, I’m ready to try it! Fiber and protein are two things I strive for each day. I also have a 3 year-old who I’m always trying to get to try new things and drink more water, this may do the trick!!

  59. Tiger says:

    I’ve been drinking coconut water for the past year, but it’s hard to find in the stores! When I heard of PHENOM™ and all the flavors, I got excited. I’ve been looking for an alternative to those artificial tasting sports drinks by the big G and P and others. None of them tastes good or is healthier than coconut water! PHENOM™ will be my only sports drink from now on…but I would appreciate a little sponsorship? I know that when I drink it, all my friend will too. I am competitive in tennis, soccer, and golf. The last thing I want to drink on a golf course is soda or beer! The only question I have for PHENOM™ is, “Will the container keep the coconut water cool for a while?”

  60. Tiffany W says:

    I have GOT to try this stuff!! Sounds marvelous…..

  61. jerry yang says:

    I use to drink coconut water directly from coconuts bought from supermarket. It is good for health, but inconvenient. Now I got to try this and see whether it tastes as good as the natural one.

  62. Richard A says:

    I’ve been drinking coconut water for years myself, and I’m very interested in finding out more about the nutritional facts for this elixir of life! Who doesn’t want more fiber and a great protein source to boot!

  63. Monica de Lopez says:

    I love coconut water!

  64. Toni Proper says:

    I did not know that coconut water was high in fiber which I currently need more of and i can not wait to try the Phenom product as i have been losing weight and would love to continue to do so. Thanks for the great information.

  65. heather george says:

    I love the fact that it is good for all ages. Ive been looking for a good sugar free drink for the kids.

  66. SUSAN says:

    I’m always looking for a way to get the nutrients I might not be getting from the foods I eat.

  67. Dara says:

    I would like to see how this compares to other foods. For example the amount of protein in the water compared to milk etc. I think this would be helpful in dietary planning.

  68. Sherry says:

    I have not tried this, but sounds delishious. What a cool way to get more fiber in my diet and low in calories YES! A very nice way to drink water, yup flavored water.

  69. Christine says:

    Have to say, at first, I wasn’t a fan of the taste, but two bottles later, I’m hooked. I really do feel the difference, and something keeps me coming back for more. Plain Hydro is a little weird, but the Energy and the Mega V line seem to taste a lot better. Lemon Mojito is probably the best for a mild refreshing citrus. Maybe it’s kind of like Red Bull, where this will be big, even though the taste is pretty out there? I hope so!… Unlike RB, it is actually healthy! This also has the best stats out of any coconut water I’ve tried…an extra plus.

  70. zelda says:

    I’ve never tried coconut water but it sounds like something I might like.

  71. Debbie says:

    I am desperately trying to eliminate diet soda from my life. I drink lots of plain water, but it gets boring after a while. I am constantly looking for something different to drink, that has some health benefits and is low in calories. This coconut water looks like it could hit the mark. I can’t wait to try it.

  72. dominic says:

    never would have imagined all the benefits of coconut water. the fact that its fat free, all natural, with zero additives, and lots of vitamins, = AMAZING. Going to start drinking this!!

  73. Carol says:

    In the past, we were told coconut was bad for us—I loved it and would have it occassionally inspite of the guilt. I am so happy the true facts have come out and I can enjoy coconut water to my heart’s content knowing I am doing my body a favor!

  74. freebie pimp says:

    pimpin on all the free stuff! Yahoo!!!

  75. Richard says:

    Thank goodness. No sugar, no HFCS. Never thought it’d happen.

  76. vonda braden says:

    After reading about PHENOM am very excited to try it…am also alwalys looking for healthy drinks and this sounds just what I am looking for

  77. Jim T says:

    I have diabetes type 2, & use medications to control my blood sugar. Will coconut water affect my blood sugar levels? I am excited to try it if it is ok.

  78. anna says:

    very insightful information. i’ve seen some people at my gym drinking coconut water and wondered if was a fad thing or really worth it. now that i’ve read about all the nutritional values i’d love to try it myself. i can’t wait!

  79. George says:

    Heard a lot about coconut water and have wanted to try. now , with more information, i really want to try it. Thanks

  80. Andi says:

    My son has type 1 Diabetes so I am always looking for healthy foods for him. I really like the fact that Coconut Water has fiber and no added sugars. Fiber is great for keeping blood sugar from spiking. I will definitely be checking the store to see how many carbs per serving it has.

  81. sonnet licht says:

    i love coconut water.this sounds like its very healthy and rich in antioxidants!

  82. Tiffany says:

    Coconut water sounds so interesting. I never knew that it had some much stuff in it. But now that I have seen all the info then i might be interested in trying it for myself.

  83. Marsha Sickler says:

    Never heard of coconut water before,but I am very intrigued by the many health benefits! I am a 44yr old mother of six and a new grandmother and I want to get healthier.I think coconut water might be an easy start to getting healthier.I look forward to receiving a sample to try!

  84. Linda taylor says:

    I have an 8 year old that I am always trying to get to eat healthier as we all are. He loves the coconut water (its his favorite)..and I love the fact he is getting no added sugars or preservatives. I really want him to try other flavors but he sticks with his FAVE

  85. julie hutchinson says:

    I was not aware of this product until now and would love to try it to find out if it will help lower my blood pressure as I am looking for natural ways to do this and trying to avoid being put on meds.Also seems like it would be a nutritional healthy drink that has a great taste.

  86. David says:

    Sounds like a great way to quench your thirst without filling yourself with tons of unnatural ingredients.
    Sounds tasty too, since I like coconuts.

  87. Kimberly B. says:

    I am just now learning about the benefits of coconut oil. I had no idea tha there were so many inherent benefits of coconut water. I am lookng forward to trying some as I am trying to cut back on sodas and this is a much healthier alternative.

  88. Rebekah says:

    I love coconut - and I have even had the milk fresh from a tree in Fiji - but one thing that me and my traveling friends could not figure out is what category of food groups that coconuts fall into? Is it really a “nut?”

  89. eric says:

    solid info! going to give this product a shot!

  90. robbi h. says:

    cocunut water has been a staple in my diet for yrs….beats gatorade or other “reovery” drinks allay everyday!!!!!! and now i dont have to worry bout cracking cocunuts myself or wasting!

  91. Heather V says:

    I had no idea all the awesome facts about coconut water!! I always use coconut oil for cooking. Now I think I will try coconut water!!

  92. Jennie says:

    I’ve never tried coconut water but it sounds good!

  93. Valery says:

    I’ve always been curious to try coconut water, but have been to hesitant to buy it. Can’t wait to try it!

  94. Laura Sommers says:

    I have been hearing more and more about coconut water on different health blogs that I read. The nutrition facts sound amazing, and I can’t wait to try it after a good run to refuel and get some nutrients!

  95. joni strailey says:

    This sounds so delicious and a freat way to stay fit and healthy!!

  96. Hiba says:

    I started drinking coconut water instead of regular water after my runs a few months ago and the effect is phenomenal. Before, i would chug water after I ran in an effort to rehydrate, but I would be thirsty all the time! After drinking coconut water, I think my body now has the electrolytes i sweat out and my running is better than ever :) I’ve tried a few different brands, but none of them have been the right fit for me..hopefully this one is!

  97. Julie shilling says:

    I LOVE coconut water and am looking forward in trying this brand. It’s so important to stay healthy. I do p90x dvds and insanity and I LOVE it

  98. Abby says:

    I have seen/heard a lot of people drinking this after their long runs, but I never understood why. Thank you for this article that breaks it down for me.
    I will be sure to try it!

  99. Britney says:

    Sounds like coconut water is a perfect post-workout beverage. Look at all those electrolytes!

  100. Meghan B says:

    I have seen coconut water everywhere and I’ve been too scared to try it. What a great opportunity!

  101. kelly says:

    Interesting, I have read a lot of information about fueling the body after a workout. I know that I need to get in protein after a workout, but I never considered replenishing the electrolytes that are lost through sweating. I have a difficult time finding products that are healthy, allergen-free, and good-tasting. This would be an interesting product to try - maybe you guys can advertise this as allergen-free as well? There sure is a market out there that desperately needs these types of products!

  102. Ashley says:

    Sounds like a great addition to my running fueling… Can’t wait to try it!

  103. Heather says:

    Of course I have heard all the hype about coconut water but I had no idea that there was so many benefits to it!! I find it difficult to get all of my fiber in a day and I definitely think this would help! I love water but I also enjoy drinks with a little “flavor” this seems like the perfect alternative!!

  104. Tara Fleck says:

    That sounds really good, I love coconut everything! Can’t wait to try it!

  105. Andi says:

    I heard that coconut water was supposed to be good for you, but I had no idea that it had electrolytes, fiber and protein. Neat.

  106. wendy says:

    600 mg.s of potassium and tastes better than a banana!

  107. Maggie says:

    Coconut water is so good! Very interesting article by the way!

  108. GIanna says:

    I love that Coconut water provides a lot of the most essential nutrients and electrolytes that you need to get through your day! It has lower calories and sodium that most other drinks such as sodas and high calorie juices on the market today, and I most especially like that of these daily electrolytes that we need, coconut water contains about 600 mg of potassium per serving. That is more than a banana! On top of all those benefits, it is super yummy and tastes awesome!!!

    sounds like coconut water would be something good to replace regular water especially after working out

    For a nutritional weight loss dessert, try to substitute coconut water up to 80% of the liquid content used in a typical jello recipe. Perfect way to satisfy craving for sweets, cool down body temperature in the summer heat, and get all the nutrients coconut water can afford.

    Coconut water helps keep my water levels balanced. The water helps keep me hydrated, but I don’t get the water “slosh” where you feel liquidy in the stomach.

    I always liked taste of coconut. Now I can enjoy the coconut water, it’s natural and healthy. I especially like the fact that it has magnesium, electrolytes, proteins and even fiber. Also that it doesn’t have any additives and it’s really low in calories!

    We are learning about the secretion and absorption of these ions in the urine in my biochemistry class. I realize we secrete a lot, so we need to maintain these ions in our body in order for it to sufficient. I rarely drink water, and i know its bad, how can i improve?

    Coconut water is my favorite drink!

    I use coconut water instead of pedialyte for my children when they’re sick. Pedialyte and other generic subs have way too many chemicals and artificial flavors and colors - not healthy, but the kiddos need to be hydrated and get electrolytes replaced - so coconut water is great for that!
    You can use it when they’ve got a fever, or diarrhea or any other time you’d use pedialyte.

    It tastes pretty nice, too, so it’s easier to get them to drink it than pedialyte.

    I just tried coconut water and was pleasantly surprised how refreshing it is.

    I got my free sample from GNC and good thing it was free or I would demand my money back! This stuff is down right 100% grade A crap. Took one sip and spit it out right away. Now I have to deal with this horrible taste in my mouth the rest of the day. This product will be an E P I C failure. I pitty those who actually like it. I hope you are getting paid well to say that.

    i love that coconut water is such a great source of electrolytes, while being completely natural. i can honestly say, gatorade is a thing of the past- no more “sports” drinks either.

    This sounds like a refereshing product! I can’t wait to try it. I wonder if I will feel like I am on a tropical island? I think it will be great to replenish after my runs.

    Several years ago in Florida, I suffered from lack of potassium due to dehydration. Coconut water would have been a convenient drink to carry along.

  122. BigT says:

    I’ve always wanted to buy some coconut water!!! From reading this article I want to buy some even more!
