MENTAL AND PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE

  • Potassium – a mineral that helps nerve function and muscles to contract. It helps your heartbeat stay regular. -MedilinePlus
  • Sodium – keeps the water (the amount of fluid inside and outside the body's cells) and electrolyte balance of the body. Sodium is also important in how nerves and muscles work. -Healthwise
  • Calcium – helps build strong bones and teeth, regulates muscle contractions (including your heartbeat). -NHS
  • Magnesium – important for many processes in the body, including regulating muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure and making protein, bone, and DNA. -National Institute of Health
  • Phosphorus – formation of bones and teeth. Has an important role in how the body uses carbs and fats. It is also needed for the body to make protein for the growth, maintenance, and repair of cells and tissues. -MedilinePlus

Great Source of Energy

  • Body/Brain Power - Coconut water has the clean carbohydrates your body and brain need to perform at a high level. In fact, the brain has the more demand for glucose (carbs) than any other organ -NCBI
  • Increases Endurance - Scientists found that men who hit the good stuff before a 30K treadmill time trial were 10% faster than those who stuck to carb-light fare. -MensHealth 
  • Longer Life - people eating a moderate amount of carbohydrates (50% to 55% of their daily calorie intake) had lower mortality rates over a 25-year period than those who typically ate low-carb meals (40% or less of their daily calories) or high-carb meals (70% or more of their calories). -Harvord

Reduced Inflammation

  • Low GI – coconut sugar is known to be one of the lowest ranking sugars on the glycemic index 
  • GI and Inflammation- a low glycemic calorie-reduced diet has been shown to reduce inflammation -PubMed

Supports Heart and Blood Pressure Health

  • Cleaner Heart - rats that consumed coconut water had reductions in blood cholesterol and triglycerides. -PubMed
  • Lower Blood Pressure – one study concluded that coconut water helped reduce systolic blood pressure (the pressure when your heart pumps) in 71% of participants -PubMed
  • Fights Diabetes – coconut water was shown to significantly reduce glycemic levels and oxidative stress on diabetic animals -PubMed
