Work Your Core With Copra

by | Wellness | 0 comments

Although everything you need for a workout may differ according to person, the need to hydrate is universal. While a good playlist and new workout gear may make you feel motivated to get out the door, you can depend on coconut water to help you stay charged while you break a sweat.

Here’s why at some point your workout should include refrigerated coconut water to replenish and rehydrate, which has far more benefits than pasteurized, shelf-stable coconut water. Copra cracks and bottles our coconut water within 5 hours of harvest then ship freshly frozen from Thailand to keep all its natural nutrients.

 

What are Electrolytes?

Electrolytes are minerals that regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, balance blood pressure and help rebuild damaged tissue. When you start to break a sweat, you lose electrolytes. Because electrolytes are vital for a healthy functioning body, this may cause you to feel depleted and most likely end your workout early.

Getting the right balance of electrolytes will replenish your body and energy, and help rebuild lean muscle. This means you can plan for less interruptions, including cramps/spasms, as the electrolytes help your muscles to perform.

 

Nature’s Sports Drink

Young coconut water naturally contains all 5 essential electrolytes, including potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus, unlike traditional sports drinks containing only 3 of the 5 essential electrolytes.

Pure coconut water’s balance of sugar, sodium and water perfectly mimics the proportions of your blood. In fact, it can even be pumped directly into the bloodstream! Just an 8 oz serving of Copra’s coconut water has no added sodium, 14 times more potassium than an artificial sports drink, as well as your daily intake of magnesium, calcium and phosphorus.

Copra’s coconut water has fewer calories and less sugar (and zero added sugar) than most sports drinks. Lastly, no need to worry about those questionable additives, chemicals or food colorings (the pretty pink is natural!).
