Stay hydrated with this great alternative to normal water.

There are plenty of store bought coconut waters on the market, but many are expensive, and some even contain unnatural ingredients. Coconut water is an excellent source of electrolytes and especially a good drink for runners and other athletes. Fresh coconut water is one of the best ways to replenish your body after a tough workout. Unlike plain water, it does contain calories, but if you love the taste of a refreshing coconut drink, our recipe for coconut water is a great alternative to sugary juices and sodas.

Many people struggle to drink enough water on a regular basis. There are debates about exactly how much is enough, and most research shows different people need different amounts of water – no surprises there. The best way to ensure you are getting enough water is to monitor your body closely. Do you suffer from headaches? Is your urine dark yellow in color? Do you feel sluggish or fatigued? You might be suffering from dehydration.

Unfortunately, if you do not like the taste of water, you are not able to turn to coffee or tea or juice or soda to keep you hydrated. As a matter of fact, some of these drinks are diuretics and can actually dehydrate you further. Instead of choking down just enough water each day to survive, give coconut water a try. Drinking several glasses a day might put you over your calorie limit, but one glass each day is enough to prevent dehydration and cuts back on drinking other beverages.
