Drink Coconut Water To Restore Your Body's Energy Levels

Filed under: Exclusives!FitnessPersonal TrainerBodyNutrition

Coconut water

Want all of the benefits of drinking a sports drink after a work out without all of the extra sugar and other additives? FitPerez contributor and personal trainer Ryan Walseth recommends coconut water! Find out why below!

After a sweat-evoking 60-minute workout, (strength and cardio of course) your body becomes depleted in it's glycogen and electrolyte stores.

Glycogen serves as your immediate source of energy (sugar).

- Low glycogen levels = low energy

Electrolytes assist in maintaining water balance in the body. They consist of magnesium, calcium, sodium, phosphorus and potassium.

- Low electrolyte levels = potential muscle cramping

So what should you reach for after your workout to replenish these depleted energy and hydration stores?

Sports drinks such as Gatorade, G2, Powerade, and Vitamin Water are popular choices. Unfortunately they all contain added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and/or sucrose syrup as well as artificial colorings and additives.

A healthier alternative?

Coconut Water!

Coconut water contains naturally occurring sugar (glycogen) from the fruit, and more potassium (electrolytes) than a banana.

I sampled nearly a dozen different brands finding a couple to my liking:

1. Zico
2. Taste Nirvana (with Aloe)

If you haven't tried Coconut Water yet, check it out and let me know what you think! Found in any grocers refrigeration or beverage aisle.
